    Is an axe pro a good choice?

    What's better an axe pro or an ego 11?

    Well I'm tying to choose between then. Are these similar markers? Which is more reliable? Does one shoot better than the other? Accuracy?

    best advice is to get yourself down to your local walk on or if you are near a shop, and ask people to have a look at their guns. Most paintballers will be happy to show off their kit to polite people.

    reliability is down to how well you maintain your toy. Learn how to clean and lube whichever you choose.

    does one shoot better than the other. No. Most places to play will have a rule to limit the balls per second, so if everyone is shooting at 10bps, then most guns will shoot pretty similar really.

    accuracy? Biggest thing to effect accuracy, other than better paint, is yourself. No one gun is more accurate than another really. It's all practice, practice, practice.

    What are you looking for in a marker?
    Having a Luxe is all well and good but are you going to maintain it properly and troubleshoot on colder days where they get temperamental?

    My brother has a RSX and it's a great little shooter that I feel is king at its price point but again will need maintenance regularly.

    Not particularly a fan of planet but quite like the Gamma core in their Gtek line. And while they certainly work through abuse I spend a lot of time telling upset owners that regardless of what the nation says even a Geo needs lube sometimes....

    Loving the look of the gtek 160r as possible first brand new mid/higher end gun. Spending a fair bit of time weighing it up against some second hand gear.....
    Any recommendations to look out for in terms of second hand gear?
