If your planning to play seriously with your electro, pick up a mini or an axe. I played a few games with an axe and loved it (I'm 6'2" and can palm a basket ball off the dribble). Why not go for something a little more fun? for 500 you could build a kick *ss custom ion or maybe pick up a used e-bladed cocker and still have money to grab a nice hopper and tank.
Cattle die, kinsmen die
all men are mortal.
Words of praise, will never perish
nor a noble name.
