So, I've pretty much upgraded just about everything this year...

DM4 >>> Ego 6
Steel tank >>> 45/3 wrapped tank
Empire B (w/broke shells) >>> Frankenhopper (Halo shells, Empire board, Magna clutch upgrade, mwahahah)
Ventz avatar >>> JT proflex (keeping the avatar though, its nice)
crappy JT gloves >>> Nice Dye gloves
Empire Invert pants >>> Urban camo JT teams
Old JT jersey >>> Dye C7 jersey
Crown Royal bag >>> Dye Tank cover (lol, the CR bag now holds my reballs)
plus a few ups for the ego, hybrid grips, urban camo ccu, CP rake trigger, blackout screw kit.

About the only thing I've kept is my pod pack. God I love tax time.

So what upgrades have you done this year?

I bought a shocktech bushmaster as well as a trayless frame for it and an 04 chaos board.

I sent my 04 bushmaster to txaggie so he could install an 05 ego frame and board on it.

bought a 68/4500 nitro duck tank

bought a hybrid shelled victory board halo for $65

bought a promaster package deal with a ton up stuff for dirt cheap(when the promaster sells, I'll have a cp barrel kit and a tribal .689 barrel for free, plus a bunch of valves, bolts, and hammers)


This is all within a year, not starting in January.

Well. I went from...

Scammed out of my 05 ego > Le fusion(still have)> A1
Still have the pulse. No need to upgrade.
48/3k steel tank> 68/4500 with Myth reg
And my appearel was looking old(had it for 4/5 years) so I bought a whole new set for around $75(jersey, pants, gloves, pack, tank cover) Note, they were not all the same brand. But I did go with usa/Russian Legion colors :p )

Hey, how is the Pro Vantage? I was thinking about either them or the Profiler's which are much nicer but more cash too.

Well this year? Nothing.

My gear has been pretty much the same for a while now. I still use the same kneepads and headband I used when I started playing. But now I have a working freestyle so I'll be using that more often.

Working? Freestyle? WHAT!?!?!? nah j/k. The profilers will be loads better then the vantages, more bounce material, more vision, and they look so much more cooler.
