Thinking about a new PUMP

I'm trying to decide on the next pump that I buy. Looking for an open class pump gun. Right now the choices I have come up with are PYRE, CCM, or Carter Mini Comp with DF. All 3 are close enough in price range that price is not a major part of this. Opinions and suggestions always welcome. Only one I"m not real familiar with is CCM products. I have not shot a PYRE but I love Palmers work. And I have a buzzard for my SC moods. So any advantages or disadvantages people see are appreciated.

I can't comment on CCM, other that I know they are very smooth, as I can't stand back blocks....So I shoot a Pyre, and as an open class machine, I LOVE IT!

I never found the 'newer' 1997-8+ carters durable enough for heavy heavy shooting. I have broke power tubes and sears on them. As stock class they are fine markers, but dont seem to handle churnign paint like the WGP/CCM based and PPS offered platforms.

I've used all three and for a long time been a Sniper fan with great love for CCM parts. That being said my Pyre has moved to the front of my bag with my CCMed Sniper residing as the back up.

The mini comp deserves to stay a stock class platform, it does that soooooooo well. personally Id vote S-6 as thats what I'm going with for my open class gun of choice.
