Invert's CS is to take the marker, toss it into a non-working marker bin, and send you another one.

Ive had a PMR for about 3 years now and I love it, its fast enough for any kind of play, reliable. and pretty OK on air for the price. some fun upgrades too. Ive never heard anyone rave about the MINI like people did with the PMR when it came out.

I've had both and in my opionion the first gen Mini was better then the first gen PMR -both being stock. The PMR was horrible on air. For both mine and my friends you got about a pod for 1000psi, the Mini was pretty bad as well but it wasn't that bad. The main thing I heard people complain about the Mini is that it was to small for them, for me it was a great gun. I thought the PMR had more stock issues then the Mini, the feed neck on the PMR wasn't as good, it shot air in your face, and I didn't really like the stock PMR trigger. The one thing I do like about the PMR is that you can upgrade it alot more and the UL frame is amazing.

DYE's customer service is good. Their support model is horrible. Try buying parts for a DM or PM8, then tell me how good they are.

You can't go wrong with either marker. Buy the one YOU prefer.

Chris, we had a customer come in with a simple broken bolt in an SLG. Replaced the bolt (easy fix), and it worked. Then it wouldn't work no matter what, it just jackhammered and jackhammered it's way out of air. Sent it into DYE, they scratched their heads, and Dave Youngblood himself sent the gentleman a nice new PMR UL. I like that kinda support, personally.

Hmmm, Ive heard this so many times, but failed to understand why. My first gen PMR is AWESOME on air. I got WAY more than 5 pods on a 68/4500 fill, never once getting in a bind with air during games. In one game during my last tourney, I shot 5 pods and still had nearly a 1000 psi left in the tank. Maybe they were just hit and miss?

I guess, I wonder what makes them change that much though. If my PMR was better on air I probably would have kept it longer.
