Everything looks good besides the mask. I'd recommend saving up some more to get something that will fit your head real comfortably like say a VForce Profiler or Grill. The mask is the most important thing to get first for paintball. Otherwise, if you'd tried the mask and like it then I guess that's okay too! :)

Other great masks:
- Proto Axis Pro
- Dye i4
- Empire Events
- Empire Eflex
- Sly ProFit

Check out the video below as well.

The mask isn't even that bad as the helix is essentially a lower end event.
Start looking into pads and clothing.
Avoid stupid upgrades, the rail is already fine.
Spend most of your money on paint and entry.
Lastly, welcome to paintball :)

I owned a helix before i got my proflex and it was just horrible. Hard plastic, not very breathable and the foam is just horrible it acctually hurt my face.

Thats why I said lower end event. Proflexes are amazing for the price range and are a significant step up from a helix.

So then why did you recommend getting pads and clothing? If it's lower end, especially for a mask, then you should upgrade it instead of buying other things.

The helix isn't horrible like the extreme rage rental ones, so it's not a bad first mask. It's not the best, but it's also not the worst.
Yes, getting a newer mask if the helix doesn't work for you is a smart decision.
