Hi, I'm bailey I'm new to paintball.
I was wanting to buy an electric hopper, mask, pods & Azodin Kaos.
already have pants, tippmann 98 custom (looking to trade or sell) & just bought a Ninja 50/4500 tank :)
i am looking to get pretty serious into the sport & i was wondering if this was a good beginners setup, all advice welcome thanks :)

inb4 :
Halo b is a good loader, Invert TOO, Vlocity all those are good entry-mid level loaders..
mask: JT Proflex, Vforce Profiler or Grillz, Empire Events, Proto pro axis
Pods- doesnt matter, they are almost all around 1 dollar, so just buy like 6 (run like 4, and have 2 just incase some break(and them replace those broken ones..)
those are some options for you..

for the mask try to go to a store and try some on, see what you like better.

if you have more money, you can get a pinokio loader, or a rotor, but with a mech gun, the others should be great..

Get some Proflexes or Grillz, VLocity with a dynasty upgrade, ^ What he said about pods and the Azodin is fine, but you can also buy a Gog Extcy for a little more and be super happy.

Hope this helped

These are what I think I'm getting... I'm holding off on the Kaos until I can sell the tippmann. And unfortunately the hopper as well

The GoG eXTCy isn't a bad gun to look at either, it depends how much you're willing to spend on a gun. You could probably pick up a 09 / 10 PMR for like $300, or a Mini.

For the hopper I recommend the V2 Prophecy.. you can find some brand new ones on eBay for like $90 / $100... which isn't bad.

As for the mask, I recommend the Events. They're really small, and not too big either. And $100.
But like I said, it's about how much money you're going to want to spend.

I thought you already had a proflex? You can't just tell someone on the BST that you're gonna buy something and then back out, that's terrible. Don't skimp on a mask. It is your most important piece of equipment.

I show up at a field that I never been to before for some rec-play wearing cargo pants with a t-shirt....carrying a old mech Spyder and two pringle potato chip cans for pods shoved in the pants pockets. The stares are priceless and after the first game or so you get to see the grins from the ref and players who know....priceless.

I'm saying that you can't tell someone on the BST that you're gonna buy something and then back out. That's not how we conduct deals on the TechPB BST.

Dude honestly, if the guy doesn't want to buy something he doesn't have to no matter what. He's on a budget someone told him he could save money, so he decided to save money and do something else. And it looks like he talk to the guy and the seller was probably fine with it, now if he'd already shipped/payed it would be a different story. Try helping, not just telling someone they're breaking a "rule" of "ours?".


Everything here is good I'd look into...

Mask: JT proflex light, small, and the "oh my ears are exposed" bull shit is only said by people who havn't worn them, you won't "rupture you ear drum" the only thing hanging out is your lobe if you're like me and have really long lobes but it's not like there's no ear protection like people make it out to be.

Hopper: Vlocity, buy local so people don't screw you on shipping, and latter on invest in a $10-$20 chip (gangster, dynasty, virtue, ect.)

Tank: you've got it

Pack: anything used a lot of times you can find packs that go for $40+ new for $20 used (for pods find a buddy that has a few extra and use them untill you pick up some of your own, i find 4-5 FREE pods just laying on the ground every time i play)

Pads: a lot of times i recommend getting good pads before a gun especilly if you want to get serious just look around really anything works.

Gun: Kaos is good, also the GoG exacty is pretty good from what I hear just do some research

and the #1 rule when you're on a budget is buy used always for everything except slider shorts (lol ball sweet sharing is frowned upon) you will save so much money and be able to play a lot more.
also remember an older high end is better than a newer low end.

I think that's a win.

In my opinion i would get the Azodin Blitz other than the kaos the blitz will last you longer and is not that much more money
