Review: After 8 cases of paint i think i have formed an opinion on this marker.
IMO the weakest part of this marker are the trigger, followed by its efficiency and finally the kick.

Lets address the 3 issues i had with the trigger. First the feel is soft almost spongy this is in part from the magnetic trigger return. Second the lack of a micro switch make the trigger feel dead, i like the trigger to go click. And the third is the location of the trigger, i feel it's a bit too close to the tigger frame which makes it feel awkward. The only thing fixable is the trigger return, the CP trigger kit comes with a spring conversion kit that works great and puts some snap in the trigger.

Next thing i had a problem with is the efficiency out of the box i got hopper and 4 pods out of my 68/4500. After installing TechT MRT delrin bolt, lowering the dwell and 8 cases of paint later i'm getting hopper plus 7 pods. (about the same as my EOS)

Lastly the Kick....i know its a paintball marker not a firearm, but it kicks more that my Etek which i didn't think was possible. So i run a stainless steel backed boomstick which helps a little. I tried to install the TechT spring kit however, I experienced bolt stick problems so i am using the stock bolt spring.

Conclusion: Well it's not a bad marker but...... it's not a great marker.
The Invert Mini kicks as much as a poppet valve and has the efficiency of a spool valve marker. Plus it has one of the worst triggers I've ever felt. So i'm going to have to give it a 5 rating, it's an average marker.
Also keep in mind that i'm kinda comparing the mini to my etek and eos.

Invert mini: $300
Upgrades: $88
( Cp trigger $35, MRT bolt $35, spring kit $18)
Total: $388
