Hi all, I'm coming back to paintball after a ten year hiatus and I have to say, I don't even recognize the industry. Technology has really changed the face of paintball, I never thought I'd see kids shooting 12 bps reliably and consistently out of $200 guns.. amazing.
Anyway, I'd like some help with my "budget baller" set up. I will list what I've got and some initial thoughts on what I might get. Please comment if you have any ideas on how i can improve this set up. keep in mind I'm trying to stay on the cheap.
Mask- Purchased some Empire E-Vents on ANSgear "deal of the day" for $47
Loader- Got a Halo Too brand new for $60 (I think that's a decent deal?)
Air System- I want a 68/45 for sure. I love the price of the HKArmy tank ($115) but cant find many reviews on it. I know Ninja is probably most recommended reg on market but I've never had problems with any of the old crossfires and nitro ducks i used back in the day so i find it hard to justify the premium price tag. I was looking at some used tanks but prices are crazy for used tanks! if the difference between new and used is only like $30, I'll go with new every time.
Marker- I'm thinking a GOG Extcy (new)... but i do like the axe (used) and the idea of getting an old ego 7 or 8. (I suppose I'll just lurk online until an awesome deal pops up). Trying to stay around $200 but I'm mostly looking to get the best bang for my buck.
apparel- After I've got the above items I will probably just lurk around ansgear for an (on sale) pro quality pack and jersey. As far as pants are concerned, I've always used army surplus camo pants with volleyball knee pads and shin guards.
What do you think? Any input will be greatly appreciated!
