$500 to spend

Hey!


Well, i have a lot of money i am willing to spend on pb, but i want to limit it to $500. Think inculdes, tank, hopper, mask, gun, ect. I have a spyder XTRA now, and i am now on a team and we will be getting sponsored soon, soo i think i need new equipment. I have a 9 oz CO2, gravity hopper, and a crappy brass eagle mask. what should i get? thanks

no offense, but ur suggest him to UP a tes. not saying the gun isnt good enough for that price, but resale is horrible, and its just not worth it.

i say, pbn bst. Used vision imp. used 68/45 tank (check hydro date) and a revvy. it may take some searching, but you should be able to find that stuff for around 500 bux and u have a decent setup w/ eye.

Ebladed cocker... but since not many people want to tak ethat route.. do what dj said...

pbn and gaining more ground here, have amazing deals on used guns.

Profiler... hands down, jsut got mine and its the best thing since air being put under pressure and shooting a capsule made of geletin with color fill out of a cyclindrical hollow metal shaft at near 300feet per second...

you have better options than a bko. Used guns are CHEAP! if you went a little higher, you could prolly get a trix package off ebay, or pbn. the best thing to do is SEARCH around used gun places,(b/s/t here, pbn, ebay) and look at stuff available at the time. I think the buyers market is around february, b/c all the guns from 04 that are 1 year old, only used thrice, are for sale...

no offense, but i know what im talking about. please dont contradict me, u may have ur opinion but i think most people whove owned a variety of hoppers would agree with me. ive played with a revvy, empire reloader, egg2, halo. I use an egg2, and this weekend, im prolly just gonna use my friends revvy. why you ask? cuz i want to sell my egg before it breaks for the 4th time. Ive replaced the shells once, and the battery door bout 3 times. It also feels bulky and top-heavy. After playing with my egg, then putting on a revvy... i feel like i could make it to any 50 cuz everything feels so light. In my eyes, its revvy/reloader or halo. those would be the 2 smart choices. revvys dont feed too badly, they feed past 10bps btw.

anyways, thats my 2cents.

well, depends. Who are your sponsors. even though i cant believe a team of newbies will get sponsored but you should squeeze out what ever you can outta them. try to buy a bko(300) revvy with x-board(40 i think) used crossfire(100). asa(20). and if you have any money left get upgrades.


about 460$

You mean you asked them? or youve made contact and gave them some info and video, or let them see you play?

B/c if your saying your gonna get sponsored, and just asked some guy to sponsor you, dont get hopeful. NO OFFENSE! im just saying, maybe some tourney wins and such might back up your talk...
And go with TITO... NOW!

An ASA, is a piece you screw onto the bottom of the marker's grip. Look for somthing that says Unimount or drop forward... ME i prefer unimount. the air tank then screws into the unimount or dropforward.

after that get something called ''macro line'' and 2 ''90 degree fittings'' one fitting screws into the asa and the other screws into the inline regulator A.K.A ''the foregrip". the macroline is a straw sorta thing that gets air from the asa to the INLINE. the macro fitts into each of the fittings. Ask some one at your field for help.
