Between these 2 and ONLY these 2...ugh...I would choose...OK, there's no way I could choose either one.

For the same price, Valken Proton.

Keepin budget in mind the Gog extcy is best bang for the buck.

Out of those two? The crossover will be a quality product, but not the best as far as ergonomics, efficiency, smoothness.

The g5 would be a better performing marker for sure, provided it works. The QC problems I've read about it are cause for alarm. Although that's what warranties are for. All in all, I'd take a g5 over crossover. But theres just so many more options out there for equal or WAY less money and better performance.

I've played with an eXTCy and had to service one as a rental. We've had some plagued with board and noid issues, not to mention how cheap the eXTCy feels in the hands.

The Proton is the better choice.

Of those two though, I say the G5. There was a Crossover at the field that was a rental, not only did the board suck to program, but the trigger was bouncy in electronic mode and it was just bulky in general. Hell, I'm possibly going to be keeping a G5 as a backup when I sell a couple Spyder projects and a cocker just because they're light, tight, and will work as long as you make sure to put quality lube on the bolt.

Of those 2 I think the G5 is a MUCH better option, but like others have said the proton is probably better than either.
