Most people on this forum will first suggest a borg, and then an angel. Unforntantly i just lost my job... i was late this morning and i doubt im gonna be getting another one untill summer. With this being said i need a new speedball gun. I have 650 now, and im looking at an 06 rasta angel or a borg. Since now i have no income and the borg is so far away i am leaning to the angel. What makes an angel better than alot of other markers, except the borg. (i have already tried both guns out and they both feel equal)

I just have a thing for Egos, i love the way they feel, very fast out of the box too, not sure the exact count. but the only bad thing is that they are kinda loud.

ego>angel
Angel's pretty overhyped.They are still good markers but not as good as most ppl think.Instead of an etek look for a used 05.Egos are incredible guns and I'd rather shoot an ego over an angel anyday.

Depending on how old you are, and your current living situation... perhaps your next job should be more on the priority list. And poor speedballers... that's what Ions are for.

Angel is just a name. I would shoot for an 04/05 DM/PM. You should be able to get a great used one well within your budget. Now the ego is a poppit, and I have a more personal preference toward the spoolies so that is my big reason for saying go with the DM/PM.

The only major differences is that the PM is the poor man's DM. Or now that I am thinking about it, you could be unique and go with the EM (evil minion) that is the latest offering into the matrix series of markers and is just as nice, for roughly the same price.

id personally go matrix, but i would def go angel speed 06 over etek, i wasnt really impressed by the etek when i shot it, its trigger was real sloppy and it was fast, but it wasnt anything special. the anno alone fetches a nice price on the resale of that angel.

i love my PM6. its considered a poor mans DM6, just a marketing ploy to give people a cheaper (but near equivalent) alternative. Matrixs in general are awesome. minion has cool milling too.

For $650 you can get most '05s.
I would get in this order.
PM6, DM5, '05 Alias timmy, EGO5.
Angels are overrated. Get the PM6 or minion.

In 1970 the Chevy Nova was created. This was the worst selling car in Mexico because the words "No va" mean "Doesn't go". If you would never buy a Saturn Ion because the word "Ion" means "Doesn't shoot", Put this in your profile.

I would say a DM/PM. You Can get a used PM6, and since the DM7 is coming, you might be able to get a used DM6. Other than that, Evil Minion FTW. I love my minion.
