Brand New Setup!
Posted 11 December 2012 - 05:20 PM
I started playing paintball back when I was 14 but school, family, budget and a host of other reasons kept me from the sport.
Now that I have a full-time professional job, i can afford to start playing again. I've put together a budget baller setup and I want some feedback on it.
Marker: GOG eNMEy with PE OOPS asa and macroline
Mask: V-Force Profilers
Hopper: VL Revolution (mech guns = cheap hoppers )
Tank: Ninja 48/3000 with cover
Pack: Angel Sports 3+6 (Seriously, this is the coolest-looking pack I've ever seen)
I'm leaning more to making the jump into the warm and gooey speedball world again but want to hone my skills using a mech. Saving money on paint is a plus too.
So. Thoughts? Comments? Jokes? All would be very welcome

Get a Ninja 4500psi tank with a pro reg. the cu. size is preference. 3000psi tanks are a waste of money in my opinion.

I would HIGHLY recommend getting pants and knee pads. They are life savers 4 sure.

For pads, I'm wondering if i can run down to home depot for some carpenters pads for my knees. I have some lacrosse arm pads that i think i can use as well.
As for the loader, I'm thinking of sticking to mechs for the forseeable future as the whole "accuracy by volume" schtick seems so wasteful and unskilled to me. I might look into something like a Pinokio down the line, though.
The tank is definitely something I'm planning on upgrading ASAP. My GF wanted to go with me last time so i gave her my old spyder and bought her a tank and some JT Spectras, using up the last of my fun money. And I know that keeping her happy and outfitted will trickle down to me.
What are your thoughts about playing speedball with a mech? My rationale is to train myself into shot discipline and movement and not rely on ROF.
Again, thanks. I love the paintball community.

If pump is an option to you and you want a generally inexpensive pump gun I recommend the Azodin Kaos.
As far as a hopper goes I think that the Invert Too and Pinokio are the stepping stones before super loaders.
