yes, tank, hopper, and mask. I am going to Quickshot tomorrow to try on masks. The tank and hopper i am still trying to figure out what would work. Do you think the Proto Primo loader would work for now? I am on a little bit of a budget, and this would be the first electronic marker I am using. (only used rental, i.e. 98c). So i dont think I will be going crazy shooting so much my hopper cant keep up. But what do you think?

You can get a cheap electric hopper such as the egg 2 on ebay for the same price as a used primo. Go for an electric hopper because when you start shooting an electric gun its always hard to stop.

also try looking here on the nation, you most likely will find a cheap halo for 40-50 bucks, which are great loaders. Since your on a budget, if you can handle a little bit of weight i would suggest picking up a pure energy steel tank, for around 50$ too.

i personally think an egg 2 is an awesome hopper for the price i had one for a year with no issues and it feeds plenty fast

also look for carbon tanks that are only rated for 3000 much better than a steelie

Well i shot 1000 balls thru it last nite. So far so good. Not one chopped ball. I tried it out in PSP @ 11bps. It shoots nice. Couldn't believe how accurate it is for a stock barrel, and just a cheap case of paint. The balls are small too. They roll right thru the barrel(checking for match). Cant wait till I find a good paint match. Maybe a Barrel Kit is in the near future.

yea i bought a a-5 h.e. grip and the board was shot out of the box and i had 200 bucks just layin around and i went to academy with some friends just messin around and saw a camo slg for 180 on sale so i bought it. and i just gott a invert halo too loader. the setup is pretty beast right now and ive shot 550 rounds of monster balls(like a couple of years old and dented) and i didnt break one. and by the way i feel no need for a fiber dude, my steelie works perfect and can take alot of thrashing

I wouldn't be so thrilled about Monster balls not breaking. They're notorious for not breaking at all period. They don't even break when you step on them sometimes. A better test is shooting something like Evil in 40-50 degree weather.
