Nice set up. I suggest getting a better mask though. Look into the V Force Profiler or JT Proflex. Both of those are very solid masks.

Yeah go try on masks at your local proshop and pick the one you like best. Dont even look at the price tag.

Great marker, great tank, no problems with the loader. Should look into a better mask. Can't go wrong with the VForce Profiler, but hit the proshop and try on as many masks as you can, before you buy.

Looks fine. The Too should keep up with the Rail just fine. If you possibly can, try to get your hands on this stuff in person before you buy. As others have said, your mask is one area where you really want to try a bunch on before making a decision. Playing in an uncomfortable or ill-fitting mask sucks. Also, it would be nice to shoulder the Rail with that 68/45 tank, just to make sure the setup isn't too long or too short for you. If it's too short, you can try repositioning your ASA or adding a tank extender. If it's too long, you might want to go with a smaller tank like a 50/4500, or a brand that has a shorter overall length, like Guerilla Air.

I'd say everything is good, including the mask. Why? Because the Vidar uses Spectra frames, the same frame that's used on the Proflex. This means it should accept flex parts, and it will work very well if it fits you. I suggest trying it on first, and while you're at it try other masks. Who knows? You might find something you like more.

 

The gun is great, the tank is great, the loader is great, and the mask is good as well.  :tup:

I said it like 2 posts ago. The Vidar uses the exact same lens and lens from as a Proflex. The only difference between the two is that the Vidar bottoms are more rigid than flex bottoms, and they use hard ears.
