But isn't this what "hype" is about. I mean if there was any clearly superior marker hype would not be an issue. Having shot both the mini and the Axe I don't get the hype aorund the Axe. I'm don't mean to imply that they are not good markers and that the Axe does not have some advantages but I don't see where it is that much better (my opinion by memory being I liked the Mini better)

I just found it amusing the pirhana said he liked NOTHING about the Mini but, was going to try an Axe. So if you like the Axe, obviously there were some things you like about the Mini.
Not necessarily......

I owned a mini for about a month. Couldn't stand playing with it so I sold it cheap.

I played with an Axe at a local field for a few games and I liked it. I bought one this past summer and I use it every time I play. I've had it for almost 6 months, most of my guns don't stay with me for more than 2. I plan on keeping my Axe for a long time.

They are similar on paper, but they shoot VERY different and feel a lot different in the hands.

What are you talking about? I've used both a Mini and an Axe for a very extended amount of time (2 months, literally about 20 hours each of use by me) and at the same pressure from the reg and same velocity there is not much difference except for the fact that the Mini vibrates slightly more. This is JUST the shot I'm talking about. The ergonomics of the Axe are better, but it really depends how you hold your marker. Since I hold guns weird size isn't a factor for me at ALL as long as the trigger guard is roomy enough (The Mini has more trigger guard space than a DM6, just sayin).

"Private label" I always wanted a ND Shocker but could never get myself to give the extra $$ for some milling

The barrel makes a big difference too. When I used my Lurker barrel on my Pm7 it shot quiet and very smooth. When I used a cp barrel it was loud and not quite as smooth.

Anything centerfeed. I know I'm doing it wrong but I just can't aim the damn things. I'll take a powerfeed over a centerfeed.

Full wood-stocked guns. I've had some nice ones and they're fun to plink around with and they look cool, but they suck to use in a paintball game context. For that same reason, anything backbottle.

This I do have to say, specifically on the shocker, PL does matter on some. I have a Ton-Ton PL shocker and I can use a cutout can that will drop my pressure even more than the normal HE can due to the Ton-Ton not having cutouts in the body.

Then put the same damn barrel on both guns... Obviously an Axe with a Lurker barrel will be better than a Mini with a CP barrel if you're basing it on an AFTERMARKET barrel.

I just said I have owned both, and I like my Axe way more than I did the mini. No need to get so defensive over either.

I played my first tournament with a DM6, and I'm not saying you are wrong...but I find that trigger space comment to be a little hard to believe as well.

Each to his own brotha.
