SO..... Right now I am trying to make a couple really hard decisions
Option 1) I have a DP G3 and im deciding between Ape Rampage Board $70 Vs. Ape Rampage OLed $120 Vs. stock G3 board (Is OLed worth the $$$?)
Option 2) Either get a Ape OLed $120 with a Sports Sensors Chrono $95, and 200 Warrior Re-Usable PB $20 ($235)
Option 3) Pinokio Loader $125 with 100 Warrior Re-Usable PB $10, and maybe Ape Rampage $70 (not OLed) ($205)
Please give advice i am stuck in a pickle (XD WILLIE DON'T LIKE PICKLES)

Why do you need a new board?
Option 2) Either get a Ape OLed $120 with a Sports Sensors Chrono $95, and 200 Warrior Re-Usable PB $20 ($235)

What?
Option 3) Pinokio Loader $125 with 100 Warrior Re-Usable PB $10, and maybe Ape Rampage $70 (not OLed) ($205)
With $125 you can get a used rotor which is better. What is a 100 Warrior Re-usable PB $10?

If your board is fine don't upgrade it.

Welcome to Techpb

Anyways do not upgrade your G3 with an oled. It will become money you will never ever get back. If your board has all the modes you need leave it stock. Go with the pinokio but I would look around at prices ive seen them on sale for $70 multiple times. I still own a pinokio (though I use my z2 over it) and so does my lil brother. Excellent loader.

Also skip the resusable paintballs unless your a tinkerer and change a few settings and want to make sure your marker still shoots. Personally though Ive never used reballs, the velocity might read different than a normal paintball anyways.

I wouldn't bother with an oled board. If you need a new board, the non oled will be fine. Oled is a bit of a waste of money. If it comes stock onthe gun, great, but I would never shell out the cash for one aftermarket.

And reusable paintballs are a waste of money. I bought a bag of 100 and I never used them after the week I bought them. They are just sitting in my closet collecting dust and I regret buying them every time I look at them. That's some cash I really want back.

If you are willing to go used, you can get a pinokio for cheaper than that pretty easily, and you can get one of the other super loaders in that $125 budget too.

Just my $.02.

I have decided to upgrade my Halo B to a Valken V-Max and upgrade my Guerrilla Air 48/3000 to a Empire 68/4500 :D :D :D :D

I would get a pinokio over vmax personally. People seem to have a lot of gripes about the Vmax one of them is being how much it costs and how cheap it feels.

EDIT: Also go with the ninja tank over a empire if you can. Ninja seems to go out of there way for customer service, and their regs are probably the most consistent out of all the ones being made right now.

The fasta is ugly as sin, and a pinokio is, well, a pinokio.

If the board has the modes you need, dont bother. Also, unless you have the extra cash and really want an OLED, you dont need it, the boards still do the same thing.
Option 2) Either get a Ape OLed $120 with a Sports Sensors Chrono $95, and 200 Warrior Re-Usable PB $20 ($235)
Reballs are silly, even if you play reball you use the fields, so dont bother here
Option 3) Pinokio Loader $125 with 100 Warrior Re-Usable PB $10, and maybe Ape Rampage $70 (not OLed) ($205)
Just stick the the halo b, take your money and spend it on paint and practice, at the current caps any loader will do fine.
Just re-read your later post, the airtank upgrade would be worthwile, you can buy used but beware heavily used tanks.

I have the V-max and I love it! Not the fastest marker but it's still pretty sweet!

Just make sure you take the batteries out when you're not playing cause it will drain them.

Edit: Oh and I love the way it looks!

the v-max isn't a marker, nice try though.

the two v-max's i have feed like crap, chew through batteries and jam like a mother. on top of all that they are loud, so loud in fact that people were finding me while using it on my demon because they heard the hopper going. i would suggest looking for a used rotor pinokio or z2 instead. it is a crapshoot on the v-max's apparently some are ok, but most are crap and the CS at valken is pretty shoddy, their quality control is pretty much just non existant.
