I'm poor and I want to switch to an electronic marker. I don't care what brand it is or season as long as it works well, won't break down, fires good and is not 600 dollars.

I've played for I think 3 or 4 years. My last 2 years I've gone frequently in the summer time. I don't have legit clothing like jersey, pants etc. I use my football cleats for footwear. I have a bt-4 combat with I think a 14" barrel and HPA.

Its alright zecho I'd prefer a lighter gun instead of another 98 ) bt4. I now have a job (well 2 technically) so soon I will have some cash to buy a used gun hopefully. I have my heart set on an invert mini. What are the pros and cons of one?

no. the ion XE was... mediocre, the ion itself was bad design XD

stick with your mini decision.
pros: easy maintenance, light, small
cons: small, somewhat (relatively) inefficient
Not really. I never had a problem with the Ion. However the Mini is better.I mean, you could always try to find a DM7 or something too. I've found a few that are in your price range before.

ion is a piss poos design, if a car company ever made a car in which you would have to take the whole engine out to change the oil, id also say its a piss poor design. same with the ion, you have to completely take the marker apart to get to the bolt, not to mention SP is gone, i wouldnt get one for that reason alone, parts will slowly fade away now

forget the tippmann or spyder recomendations, they are a blowback like your bt4, not really a upgrade

mini is a good idea, they are good shooters but iv always been a fan of the PMR over the mini (and i used to own a mini) about the same used price on those.

other markers to consider, the DP FX, the quest and on the more expensive side the etek 3

I've checked out the proto rail online and looked at some reviews (and one from techpb). It seems to be a pretty solid marker and at a decent price (25 dollars less than a mini) so I'll talk to the paintball shop thats at the park that I go to frequently and talk to them about it also. I've narrowed it down to the mini and the PMR definitely. I'll just have to wait and see what happens. Hopefully I get lots of tip money from waiting tables ^_^

I've also chosen my loader regardless of which marker I get, the invert halo loader (will this work well with both markers?) and I was wondering what sort of HPA tank to get? Which PSI and size. I already have a 3000 psi 48 cu. I see that carbon fiber 4500 psi tanks are quite expensive, can I just use my current tank?
