I've doing LOTS of reading across the internet in forums and manufacturer websites trying to find the right setup for me. I plan to primarily play woodsball but the field I go to does have a speedball course that I'm interested in trying out from time to time. I believe I have a list that will work for me but I just want to be sure that what I am buying is worth putting all this money into.
This is what I have in mind buying:
$65 JT Proflex mask from local pro shop
$180 Azodin Blitz from the local pro shop
~$50 48/3000 HPA Tank from local pro shop
$85 Pinokio Loader off of ANSGear sale they've got going on
I would very much like to support the local shop which is also a part of the reason for the gear I've selected. And please, I know I'm not going the carbon-fiber route, but I can't justify (at the moment) spending an additional $100 dollars on a tank that will do the exact same thing as a steelie. I don't intend on shooting pod after pod in a single match. If anything, I usually tend to shoot <150-200 rounds per game.
Is this setup good for a beginner or should I downgrade a few things like perhaps get a Proto Primo or cheaper electronic hopper instead of the Pinokio or a even different marker? I would also like to stay below my $400 threshold for my gear. I can afford more but I would rather not go above the limit I've set for myself.
Thanks in advance!
