New player - what upgrades do I need?

I'm a new paintball player, and per the recommendation of my friends, I bought an Invert Mini. I had the chance to play with it over the weekend and love how it performs right out of the box, but know that a lot of people customize bits and pieces of their markers for various reason.

That being said, if I were to start looking at modifications, what would you guys suggest?

I hooked myself up with a nice N2 tank (70/4500) and bought a great Empire hopper...so I'm looking at what changes you'd make to the actual marker.

id go for your mask first if you dont already have a nice thermal lens mask or if yours is showing some wear

as for the marker itself, its expensive but id get a barrel kit, the nice thing is the mini is cocker threaded so chances are very good the barrel can go onto whichever marker you get next. lots of people, including myself, dont like the stock trigger at all, too much play and just not very crisp feeling, I replaced mine a while back. And last is the bolt, pick up a nice lightweight bolt (your choice) it will help reduce kick and should help with efficiency a bit

thats about it, everything else like the grips doesnt make a big difference, stock board is pretty nice and capable of tournies.

So which barrel kits and triggers do you recommend? I'm not going to be doing any tournament play anytime soon, so I don't want to invest a bahjillion dollars into my equipment, but I would like to have good stuff.

triggers are all personal preference, if you like rakes get a rake, if you like slings get a sling, whatever you get make sure it has a roller bearing in it, i think i got a NDZ trigger, has worked pretty good

as for the barrel kit, that really depends on your budget, the J&J edge kit is fantastic for the money you will drop on it(around $75), and you could go all the way up to the $160 DW fibur with a full freak kit if you wanted to (thats what i did )
