but if you just want a mask and a loader , i'd say what eclipse incarnate said and get the halo too and a proflex. Look on your local craigslist/kijiji/paintball forums for cheap hoppers. i've found halos selling for 30 bucks and Vlocity's selling for $5 (legit) . but don't buy your mask used its kinda grody. lol
EDIT : POST #200!

Mask: Proto Axis Pro - $79.00 : http://www.ansgear.c...romaskblack.htm from ANSGear. If you order them together you get free shipping.
I own both and have used them extensively since June 2012 and I recommend them highly. Hopper is fast, has not jammed and has great battery life. Mask is excellent, easy to breathe and I have had no issues with fogging, even in VERY hot and humid conditions.

1. I tried all of them on that I could, which meant I got to try on the Pro Axis, i4, E-vents, Proflex, and Profiler. I could've tried on the Grill but didn't. The Profits aren't really sold in this area (perhaps because too warm for the hot climate?) and the E-flex wasn't out yet.
2. Both the i4 and ProAxis felt too small for my face, especially the Pro Axis. The Proflex was way too floppy in the jaw/ear area, and didn't feel right around my eyes/forehead/face.
3. Between the E-vents, Profiler, and Grill, I liked the comfort of the Profiler the best and liked the bounce shield and forehead protection between the Grill and Profiler comparison. The Profiler also had a better field of vision than the E-vents. I bought the Profilers.
You may find your own reasons, or you may find the Pro Axis or i4 don't feel too small on your face. Since I've purchased the Profilers, I've found the E-flex to be a really great mask as well, but it's very expensive. I highly discourage you buying a used mask.
As for hoppers, I think you have 4 choices: Spyder Fasta 18v, Invert Halo II, Valken V-max, and used Pinokio/Rotor/Z2. I'd even suggest buying the first three used. You can likely get a used Fasta for $50 or less. A used Pinokio for probably around $90. You're going to struggle to get a good mask and a high end loader for $150 unless you buy a used mask (gross, don't do it) or find a cheap Proflex that you like.
EDIT: When it comes time to buy your tank, choose a carbon fiber tank that is used but retested from a site like swapmytank.com (can get a 68/4500 for $90-$110).
