I have recently decided to get into paintballing and I have a budget and have decided on all the equipment already I just can't decide on a marker. For gear I have chosen:
-NXE 4 pod harness
-Empire 68/4500 Compressed Air Paintball Tank
-Jt Proflex
-Tippmann SSL-200 Paintball Loader
and I'm stuck between a GoG eXTCy and a 2011 Proto Rail PMR. I'm leaning more towards the eXTCy but I just don't know. Any suggestions/comments on which marker I should choose, or even on my gear selection would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

BEAT ORANGE!!! You can't go wrong with either, "just flip a coin." Said Orange... I think you should get the extcy for on/off and board.

But fist, get a better mask, and get the enmy which will be the same price as an extcy. NEVER SKIMP ON A MASK!!!! Get the best mask you can get. I recommend i4s, eflexes, proflexes, grillz, profilers, or something above $75.

And by same price as extcy i mean enmy+mask+extcy price.
Doesn't matter what gun you have, how old you are, what paint you shoot, who your up against, how bad of a day you had... All that matters is that your playing paintball now.

your setup seems pretty good, the only other thing i would recommend is a better mask. As far as the gun i would say the extcy, they are both great for the price but you get a little more with the extcy.
Setup: GOG enVy, empire halo too, V-force grillz, ninja 68/4500

If you get the pmr and remove the spring from the trigger and adjust the trigger so the microswitch acts like a spring it turns the trigger insanley fast. The pmr trigger is miles ahead of the extcy trigger.

instead of a 4+1 you should get a cheap Nxe 3+2 or 4+3 because your getting a carbon fiber tank (pods come free off ans)

I think I'm going to go with the eXTCy. And I'm gonna spend the extra money to get a proflex mask. I'm looking at a different pod harnesses now

It is always a smart idea to get a 4500tank.

I bought my gun at the local proshop/field and got a 4 month free field pass and the gun was the same as on ansgear so definitely work looking into.

I know someone who is selling this exact same setup only with a pinokio hopper and its only slightly used for 225$ I'll be buying it tomorrow can't pass up on a deal like that. I'm taking it right to my local shop afterwards to be looked over.

Forget the 2011 rail. its sucks ass compared to extcy. hell Mini's are better, and i bet jurzy will agree. PMR sucks

I like loud, kicky poppets. I am the last of my people.

Both the Rail and Extcy are great markers. The Extacy does come stock with a clamping feed neck and on/off ASA, for some this is important. Can't go wrong with either.

eXTCy is a better gun stock in my opinion. Never played with either but from what I've heard.
