love or hate?

I been lookin for a good second marker to my ion xe and been thinkin on a couple different markers, the mini being ine of them. I read alot how you either love or hate the invert mini, and was curious what the main biggest issues are with this marker and what would cause such a love/hate following on this marker. Any help is good to have.

The size mostly. Some people love how tiny it is and some find it too small to hold comfortably.

The size of the Mini is the biggest "problem"

Some people don't find it comfortable

I'd say get a Mini and make the Ion your backup marker. Mini's are great markers

I also read alot about the mini having a bad bolt design causing them to chop. Do they really chop paint as bad as some say they do? There are quite a few mini's on ebay that i dont feel are priced beyond reason and am tempted to buy.

With a good hopper, there is no problems.

Indeed
And if you just happen to only shoot extra brittle stuff, Lurker just came out with the Eigenbolt for the Mini

They're shipping out now

Cool

In terms of brittle, do you refer to the paint shell? Where i play they only allow in house paint but i don't know the brand or brittle factor. what paint would be the best choice for a mini? i ain't had any problems yet shooting the house paint from the ion and would like to keep it that way if i do decide to invest in a mini. to be honest i would mostly like to own a 'back up' marker to make it easier to take friends along and to introduce more people to this wonderful obsession. and also because having lots o markers is cool.

Having lots of markers is cool? Its a disease. The gun whore inside develops, and takes hold. You cant get rid of it. I have 16 markers. I need intervention.
