I suggest a better mask, you can't shoot what you can't see. The mask is the most important equipment in paintball it will stay with you forever. I recommend any mask over $55. A good place to start is the Grillz, Proflex, or the profilers.
Get a 4500 tank off the bat, it will save you money in the long run so you don't have to buy a 4500 psi tank later. The 4500 psi tanks are also lighter than their 3000 psi counter parts (a 68/4500 is lighter than a 48/3000). These tanks are also more form fitting.
Vest and pods are ok if they fit your needs.
All in all your set up is flawed, you are not putting things into priority. How you buy your gear should go Mask<Tank<Hopper<Marker. You would want to fit in paintball pants in there as well.
My advice is not to skimp out on the Protective gear i.e. Mask, pads, pants, because these items will ensure you do not get beat up or loose an eye on the field. Also PB specific items help with ball bounces so you can avoid getting shot out much more than you would regular cloths.

Here is what I recommend Marker- GoG Enmy
Loader- USED superloader, Pinokios can be found for cheap, I bought mine for $40 but sold it for $70. In order of price ascending :Pinokio< V3 Rotor< Empire Z2< Virtue Spire
Mask- JT Proflex, V-force Grillz, E-flex, Sly profits (if you are not a heavy breather)
Tank- USED Ninja 68/4500
Harness/Vest- Rap4 Counter strike Vest (there are better vests but this one can do, try not to go with RAP4 because their stuff is expensive for no good reason)
Pods- Proto Alpha Pods (best pods on the market IMO)

If it's still brand new, maybe sell it and get a more versatile gun. If not, still ditch the cyclone and get something that is also more versatile.
Join me, put this in your sig and don't feed the fish.
