So I'm returning to paintball after last playing 8 years ago. Things have obviously changed. I'm getting back into the game with the very affordable Smart Parts Vibe. I would have gone SLG but it didn't quite fit into the budget along with the rest of the necessities (mask, bottle, loader, etc), and I didn't want to have to put my wife in the trunk. ;)

So I'm wondering what upgrades I can later apply to my Vibe so I don't have to invest in another gun when I have a bit more money to spend in 6-12 months.

I've already got a 14" barrel. And I know about the Virtue (is this worth it?).

Can I upgrade the:

Trigger?

Bolt? I was thinking Fire bolt. Will this affect the low impact stock bolt?

Detents?

Any thing else?

Thanks,
BenAdventures

i would say your set to go play, the only REAL upgrades you might need is the trigger and bolt both otherwise just go out and play and as for the virture board. its not really worth it atleast for the gun you have.

I agree id say your set to play. As for upgrades id say trigger bolt but like he said the virtue board for the vibe to me just wouldnt be worth the extra money.

I went with the CP. The Linear from Smart Parts is right in the same price range too. If you wanted to go more expensive you could go with any of the Freak kits or probably any Smart Parts Ion compatible barrel.

The only thing that will wear out will be your detents.

Here is a link to the ones made by TechT. I like them alot.
