You're not still buying into the 80's marketing hype are you?

I loved the Mini, it was just too small for my gorilla mitts, the Axe will fill that void very well. I hope to see XSV do well this year.

Pretty sure that was a joke. Didn't Alien have some kind of big marketing push hype a while back that claimed extra range? Wasn't there some joke cell phone app to go with it or something?

edit- Alien Sweep Bolt Iphone App

There is a Canadian team playing the NPPL this season also shooting the Axe.
We have been testing it for a bout 3 months now, and figure it is a tournament level marker. The only change we have made to it is the barrel. We use a Lucky 13 barrel. Other than that they are fully stock.

The refs at the local field (agpaintball) would comment on that gun when I would shoot it. They were honestly amazed at how fast I could make it go in semi.

I think very highly of this gun, and I don't think most folks gave it the chance it deserved because "it looked like the mini".

Good for Empire and XSV both...

As for the PSP mode and what not, I wouldn't put it past them to have a change for this.
You play at AG paintball in NewHampshire? I go there every so often I only live like 45 minutes away.

This is good. This is very, very good for the market for markers. I foresee a couple good things here:

1) Agglets who would normally buy used markers that are quasi-working because they're 'tourney guns' may look to a brand spanking new Axe because the pros are shooting $500 markers.

2) The price of used markers might drop even lower if the market moves towards buying new.

3) People may start to think twice before upgrading year over year to one generation newer of the same stuff since the value of last years version could potentially fall lower...and force the industry TO ACTUALLY MAKE IMPROVEMENTS AND CREATE NEW AND INTERESTING DESIGNS that would make sense to upgrade to the latest generation or dare I say, completely new marker!

On a side note, I'd like to see the deal the boys got to swallow their pride and play with the "low end' marker...lets not forget, this team had their own private label everything for a long time--egos, velocity hoppers, pants, packs etc, etc...wouldn't be surprised if you see Thomas Taylor cruising around in a new S-Class on Kee's bill.
