I recently won 300 dollars from a march madness and while I would usually buy paint this is extra money for gear. So what do you think I should buy.

My setup is
etek 3
Halo too (w/exalt speedfeed)
45/4500 which is just a little to small
empire soft goods
nxe pod pack
Proflex with i3 ears

I am stuck between a combo of these things
enmey(just for fun and a backup)
pinokio or rotor
68/45 neon green crossfire
new mask
Pump
deadlywind barrel kit(no I am not expecting improved accuracy)

thanks,
gnarlee

Because of I bought a bob long Timmy that almost drove me to the point of quitting paintball I had it for a year played every month and only used it for one full day after bringing it to multiple techs the vlocity hopper that I bought used had a wire that eventually ripped and I had to play with it taped together and I bought a used aluminum tank and it leaked so yeah I always have bad luck with used

Even though I wanted to I just can't bring myself to do it

Rotors are near indestructible man i wouldnt be too frightened. When buying used tank make sure the person has some feedback and you should be okay. But anyways new i would get a Z2 and some eflexs and depending on whats left and if you can save a bit more get a 68/4500

Then why did you stick with it?

I had it for a year played every month and only used it for one full day after bringing it to multiple techs the vlocity hopper that I bought used had a wire that eventually ripped and I had to play with it taped together
Then why didn't you solder on new connections? It is not hard.

and I bought a used aluminum tank and it leaked so yeah I always have bad luck with used
Well there is your problem.

That is great to hear (i am not being sarcastic)
That is true but it is easy to do
What do you need help with


If you have a problem with a marker, send it to me. I would fix it just to fix it.

Well new the Spire is a much better value than the Rotor.
For a pump buying new is really not that great unless youre getting a custom CCM or something similar, but theres nothing that you cant fix easily on a mech cocker really.
If you like the Proflex the E-Flex is the natural progression of that with better lenses, ears, etc.

It comes down to what you want/need the most right now.
