Eclipse seems like a good bet for you, but pricey. Empire Axe is also seems like a potentially less expensive but good route as well, if you like the ergonomics
I have a geo 2, and it has an idiot-proof design. Shoots like a really nice ion. A teammate of mine has an Etha that he really likes. It shoot kinda like an automag. Axes are everywhere with no shortage of spare parts.
