So I am not a newbie but he is and I wanted to get him his own basic gear. He helped me pick out (and by helped me pick out, I mean he picked out) the gear. He does not play as often as I do, so the gear is pretty basic and I would like opinions on the set up.

Marker:http://www.ansgear.c...ouspe1green.htm

Mask:http://www.ansgear.c...roflexblack.htm

Tank:http://www.ansgear.c...484500&CartID=5

Loader:http://www.ultimatep...ion-loader.aspx

Pack:http://www.ansgear.c...4BLACK&CartID=3

 

And on an off note does anyone know the oring size for the raps asa?

I would rather him get like an Enmey or Envy. The Enmy since he won't play often or the Envy cause it's electric, same price as the E1 but has a clamping feedneck. Also a Proto Primo would do a good job on either of those and doesn't require batteries. Everything else is fine :tup:

Thanks, Personally I had a bad experience with GoG. He is going to he held the E1 at a local shop as well as a rail and liked the E1 because he has smaller hands. I will see if he wants to look into something else though. I was also thinking of a used ion w up if I could find one

Personally:

 

marker: GoG eNVy or eNMEy (I'm more in favor of eNMEy)

Mask: preference (maybe JT with event ears vs profilers? imo)

Tank: Empire will work, but if can pony up the extra $20, ninja is the way to go

Hopper: Used revvy is Ok too, used halos, used non-z2 prophecies

Pack: preference, but also consider : http://www.ansgear.c...tpack25camo.htm

 

any thoughts to padding or the sort?

I brought that up to him but he doesn't want any pads. Kid is more hard headed  than I am lol. I was thinking an electro to start with that way he wouldn't have to upgrade when we start playing tournaments

id opt for a blitz only because i dont feel like the E1 is worth the 200 you spend for it. doesnt come with a clamping feedneck and has a useless 30 bps full auto mode that you cant use.

How invested is your brother currently? Might as well over the top if you ask me on gear if he is invested that much.

It will be a couple years before we start playing tournaments,  I want him to get a few years experience first. He has no gear of his own right now but he is hooked and I told him if it was alright with my aunt and uncle and he got good grades I would get him gear

Really the only thing I see wrong with it is... pants. Has he ever tried doing some intense slides before. Could just be that I have a knee disease (Osgood Schaltter) but getting just plain old volleyball kneepads made a HUGE difference.

 

He must have some real small hands if he needs that :/

I say eNMEy or eNVy for the marker.
Mask? Go with the profilers over the proflexs
Tank? Any one works, you should probably go with a higher end carbon fiber for him.
Loader? Go with a halo, from the money you saved from going to the eNMEy.
Pack? At least get a cheaper end empire or NXe pack, don't burden him with a cheap quality GxG pack.

See the eNMEy is underestimated. It should shoot fast enough and well enough to be mmore than sufficient for recplay, even if it is airball. I also recommend that you don't burden him with bad quality gear that may become useless very soon. A halo is a good backup loader, but a revvy isnt.

I may just do that then. I also may not have to buy him a loader as I will be upgrading from my 18v fasts

He wants to just play woods because that is all that is around us. He doesn't want to play air ball/tournaments

Well just skip that and get him either an eNMEy or an eXTCy, both are less than the G1 with blackheart, still better preformance.

Will do. He likes the look of the eXTCy but also loves my sp1 blackheart. I don't really care what he wants to play to be honest as long as he is having fun
