I have been paintballing for about 2 to 3 months now going about every 2 weeks or so. I'm looking to get more serious about it. I don't think my gear can keep up anymore. Here is what I currently have:

 

Marker: Spyder Vs2 (Very slow, Unreliable)

Tank: Ninja 68/45 (LOVE this tank)

Hopper: PMI Gravity (Cheap 9$ Gravity hopper that came with the gun)

Mask: Jt Walmart mask (Has "Vents" in the front.... I look like a cheetah at the end of the game)

Pod Pack: Gen x Global 4+3 (This is honestly fine)

Jersey and Pants: Old non-padded 2009 Valken (No Padding, Uncomfortable as hell)

 

So I need a new marker, Hopper, Mask, and Pants. Screw the jersey, I got long sleeve shirts. Id Prefer to stay into the 700-800 Dollar range, But my max is 1000.

 

NOTE: I have a fairly wide head, so a wide head friendly mask would be preferred.

 

What do you guys think I should upgrade to? Any suggestions are greatly Appreciated!


I forgot to say, I play very little woods ball/scenario and more speedball.

Go to a proshop and try on all the masks they have there.  Pick the one that you like most.  Think about comfort, breathability and protection.

 

Get elbow and knee pads before pants.

Get whatever high end mask you like. Get a used super loader (z2, spire, rotor) or wait for World Cup to see what else comes out, get a used high end. Like I said, World Cup is coming soon so I would wait and see what else comes out
This is exactly what marketing guns has come down too. a dick waving contest. You can say all the stuff you want but until you whip it out wave it around and prove it to the world everyone will doubt you. -bigx

Yes I can buy used. I do prefer poppets, clamping feedneck, on/off asa, don't have to buy a terrible amount of aftermarket parts, decent stock barrel, and can overall put balls down range efficiently.
