New Paintball Axe - Questions, Options, Opinions? Help plzzzz!

Hi All,
Shot my new Empire Axe this past Saturday and coming from an Azodin Blitz n WOW, blown away. Need help w/calibration, upgrades, barrels, n paint. I also have: Dye Rotor Hopper (speedfeed soon), 68ci Carbon Fiber tank

Questions:
- Is shorter feed neck worth $ for only .75'' lower profile?
- Mindful of cost per Paintball outting; Valken Infinity, Graffitti, or Redemption?
- Barrel insert kit?
- Barrel? Stock is pretty darn good so far..
- Board setting?
- Is Axe Pro differences worth $250 more? (LED board w/joystick n upgraded frame)
- Sell my last gun, Azodin Blitz, or keep as back up gun?

In the end, I gotta be mindful n see if $$ spent is worth the upgrade. Does xyz upgrade/tweak make THAT much of a difference... Some PB friends get all these upgrades and etc.. others say nah, stick w/what i got.

Paintballs really saved me from alot of things n help me take my mind off an insane amount of bad crap going on in my life. Thnx in advance for any advice.
J

Questions:
- Is shorter feed neck worth $ for only .75'' lower profile? - IMO, no
- Mindful of cost per Paintball outting; Valken Infinity, Graffitti, or Redemption? - what's the purpose? if you're just going recballing, infinity or grafitti. tournament, redemption pro hands down
- Barrel insert kit?freak or j&j edge. unless you got the axe with a superfreak kit, in which case, just use that
- Barrel? Stock is pretty darn good so far.. depends which insert kit you go with
- Board setting?stock
- Is Axe Pro differences worth $250 more? (LED board w/joystick n upgraded frame)only if you're tinkering. but the more you tinker the more likely you are to break something
- Sell my last gun, Azodin Blitz, or keep as back up gun? keep as a loaner if you have buddies who don't play AND you are regular on your maintenance, otherwise sell

I wouldnt even consider selling your blitz unless it is for another marker. Keep it as a backup/loaner. if anything ever happens to the axe while at the field its going to suck not having a backup to keep playing with

dont get the pro, there is nothing the stock board cant do that you need. run semi, shoot people, have fun

BAM! Thank you both! Simple, to the point, honest and unbiased answers..
I think ill stay at Infinity or maybe step up to Graffiti if i need to, stay with the reg Axe and not go to the Pro version.

Im def doing rec ball. No tournaments.. Im eat sleeping n drinking PB now. Its just really become a passion of mine and helping me in alot of ways.

And that def settles what to do with the Azodin. Ill keep as a back up for me AND a loaner to a buddy or two (i got a few that wanna come out. And have a back up tank, thermal mask, and hopper.) Great points! Thanks all. Mucho appreciated.

I got my first nice mask the other week, Virtue VIO Extend Chromatic Thermal , and it made A TON of difference! Also scooped JT FX 2.0 Paintball Jersey and Exalt Thrasher Pants V3.. love them both. I was in doubt about the jersey/pants but they actually do make a huge difference (and lovingggg the soft cup integration haha).
Cheers all!
