Recommended setup for a big guy 400, maybe $450 tops possibly joining a team

I may be joining a team in my area soo, I'd have to see how much I like the Idea first, with costs and whatnot. I currently have a BFG inspire, with an invert halo hopper and a 48/4500 tank that I use for woodsball. I don't think that that is really going to cut it for any serious speedball play. for the start, the guy at the field said he would have a few loaners for me to try first and see if I like, so that may be an option to buy from them too.
But anyways, the thing is is that I need a few suggestions for markers, I'm kinda a big guy, so I need the room for the hand that go with it. I may be needing a new tank as well because the old one is a steelie.
I am willing to spend up to 450, but would rather it be in the $350- 400 range. we would be playing in semi auto mode most of the time, so maybe the hopper would work for a while, as I wouldnt really be over the 15bps it can do.
I can carry a fair amount of weight around, so that wont be an issue.
If you want any more info I will be more than glad to give it to you.

I'm a bigger guy too, 6'1" with long hands an arms, and with a 68/45 the axe feels perfect ergonomically. The space between the grips is big enough for me to feel comfortable with it at all times. The marker itself performs and shoots well, never ever had an issue with it. Plus it's backed by kee, who has absolutely awesome customer service. Just my .02.

As to pods, it depends on the position you are playing. If you are playing front then I'd say no less than three. Mid and back, no less than five.

Im going to set you up with something a bit unconventional although it will work wonders for you.
Smart Parts SFT Shocker $200-$250 "They can feel really stretched out depending on the configuration, shoot really well and you can get them with some really good upgrades in that price range.
Eclipse Arm Pads $40 "An absolute MUST if you are playing competitive speed ball" You will thank me later.
Empire 68/45 $120 Your not trying to break the bank here simple no nonsense tank gets the job done holds air makes your gun go bang.
With whatever you have left over I would look into getting a pair of pants. They are a godsend.
Hope I helped!
