Cheapish Speedball Marker?

Alright, So I love paintball- the only reason I don't play it alot is because I love airsoft more. I've spent a good $4,000 on my current loadout in airsoft, which involves a ninja SLP 90/4500 HPA tank. I am wondering if I can use this effectively in speedball- I'd assume I'd want a smaller one?

The reason I want to do speedball is I have no reason to play woodsball when I enjoy airsoft for what it is. I currently only play on the speedball field when I get out (once every 2 months-ish).

I currently have a Carver one, with a 12oz Co2 tank, a cheapo hopper, and an Apex barrel. I guess the main question is- what are my options besides a Mini? I want an E-Trigger, ramping (might be wrong, when you pull the trigger at a certain rate and it ups your RoF to a set cap?), and the main request-reliability. I really don't want to be fixing my damn paintball gun every week. Paintball for me would be leisure time with friends, I already have enough to do working on airsoft guns.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. When I said besides a mini- I meant what are other options and the pros and cons of each? From my understanding, the main recommendation would be a mini for me, I'd just like to know other choices. I have no vendetta against a mini, but I like making informed purchases.

Edit/P.P.S If there are cheaper options for an E-Trigger that are reliable, I'm fine with that. I just figure for an E-Trigger setup that's reliable it would cost around that area.

Spyder Fenix is what you're looking for.

And this is reliable? What would the Mini have that this doesn't?

It'll run on CO2

The mini is better, but you said you wanted cheap

I mean- what does the mini have that makes it better? Not the other way around :3

Edit: Also, what is a good hopper to use with the gun?

Halo Too or Spyder Fasta 18V LED are great hoppers on a budget. Too is a bit lower profile, but the Fasta holds more. They'll both keep up with any speed that fields will allow.

Mini will be a SLIGHT bit more efficient than a Fenix, kick a bit less, and is smaller and lighter (some find it's too small). Honestly, in the price range if you want something better than the Fenix, I'll recommend the Mokal Aura or the Valken Proton over the Mini anyday. They're also internally milled, also have clamping feednecks, but they have on/off's where the Mini doesn't. They're also just as light while not being as cramped of ergos. And smoother shooting to boot. Although very slightly less efficient.
