Thumbs up Setup price, Extras?

I'm looking at a mini or Etek, and a dxs stubby, I was wondering how much it would cost with those, and the suggested other equiptment IE: hopper, pants, pack.. i need a new everything.

Im going to have anywhere from 1200-maybe 3k? so price really isn'y a factor much, but im not looking to buy an sl-66 or anything, thought it is in my pricerange.

Any suggestions are appreciated, ive been out of the sport for a yearor two

This is the Link to Sp Shocker0690's "best gun" thread, he thrashes egos and minis, and is proved wrong in his own poll!

Alright! Item bought already:

White/black E-Vents
Black/Grey/White 'Tanked' Pants..

NEED:

Gun
Tank
Hopper(Have an eggy backup, In use) <<SUGGESTIONS??(All "need" items)
Pack
Pods
Reballs

Possibly
Scuba Fill Setup

Er... How about buying a used tank, used halo or something like that, 07 jersey and pants, and an old profiler..

Its going to be the same except for maybe a few marks but you will save over 200 dollars..

If you pay $700 for an Etek, then you fail very hard.

You can get used SL66's for about $450 now which is only $150 more than a used Etek is worth. Keep that in mind. Otherwise, if you're set on a Mini or Etek, the Etek is by far the superior gun. I've had a lot of experience with both markers and Minis are garbage.

A nice tank will run you about $200 and a nice hopper will run you about $100. Along with a nice barrel for the Etek which will be about $100. You can get nice packs for about $50 and pants will run you about $100 while if you're looking for a jersey that will be about $60. Also, you will need barrel socks, pods, pads if you want them, extra parts, gear bag, etc.

Just because you own a gun DOES NOT mean its the best.

Now, noob, GTFO.


*look at his "best gun" thread.

well its all preference and im guessing your a experienced player so id look into an ego even a nice 06 one of the nation or a really nice SL. for a hopper you should gete a vlocity jr. and get a virtue chip one guy tuned his to go to 38bps. for a tank i would probably say its all preference but make sure it is carbon fiber with 4500 psi. also for tank its a big point do u like peanut tanks? some people get one cuz they look really cool but hate them becasue they think the gun to close to their body. pants and jerseys are all really preference bbut dye jerseys have really good paddin on elbows and forearms. also JT amd Empire along with all the other big name brands have reallly nice pants with great kneepads. ifyou want a pack go with NXE they are really nice and great quality. u will also need a barrel condom and i highly suggest to pick up about 5 squeegees because youl;l need them. also im guessing your gonna need a mask. you should get a really nice mask becasue they protect your face and eyes. i really like theEmpire E-Vents beaceause they come wtih soft ears thermal smoke lense a single pane cleear lense mask bag and bag for lense thats not in mask. also u should get elbow and knee pads i would reccomend eclipse elbowpads and empire kneepads my friend has them and there nice.

these are mostly all in my opinion but this is all really good equipment and all these companies have amazing customer service
