* Marker - Smart Parts Ion
* Marker upgrades - Critical Trigger, GOG Universal Firebolt, Smart Parts Tactical Barrel 16'
* HPA system / co2 - Carbon Fiber 48ci, 4500psi
* Hopper - Halo w speed feeder
* Harness - Critical Stealth Pack 3+4
* Goggle system - Dye i4
* Gear - Dye Black/Blue Pants & Proto Black/Red Pants (not sure on year), Dye 2012 Elbow Pads, Invert Chest Protector
dont waste your time with the ion upgrades, once you put upgrades on the ion youll regret not getting a new gun instead because once you buy those upgrades, they have no value. Make sure to pick up knee pads before protector and elbow pads. Dye makes great knee pads if you like dye

dont waste your time with the dye tank, its all the same unless you plan on playing outside of US/Canada. Dont wear your jersey when you play unless you want to ruin it. Looking cool for half a day then adding 2 holes to a jersey is not worth it for me. make sure you pick up a pair of knee pads. Etha is a decent gun.

All for $275

Am I ready to return or what? Yeah heavier 6 year old marker but I'm I strong old head.
Thats a really good deal as just the rotor and pm6 will run you around 250 add all the other stuff and youve made yourself something around 200 dollars if you decide to sell it back out.why is everyone forgetting kneepads

09 spyder pilot with eyes
32 oz. Co2
24ish oz. Co2 (can't remember exactly know it's a 20 something)
Hopper (guessing a pretty cheap one)
1,500 paintballs

His offer is $200
Sorry but your brother is ripping you off. Co2 tanks literally have no value and a spyder pilot is worth less than 100 dollars.

Looking to get back in after ~8-10 year hiatus.

Old setup: Old school autococker: Completely customized, all polished and purple
ANS reg, ANS hammer II, ANS quick fire trigger Delrin boat, 3:16 rat valve, DYE sticky grips, etc
Ricochet hopper
Evil barrel system (previously had boomstick, all-american, etc)
Air America tank 88/3000 (year 2000!)
Previous markers: Tippman 98 w/flatline, spyder something (first decent e-marker of theirs)

Gun still fires but needs a ton of work, and the angled feedneck broke off during one of several moves. After reading a bunch I realized paintball has drastically changed since then so I decided to get new equipment, even though I haven't been to a field yet in Louisville (I moved from IA).

I like nice "toys" and wanted something that could compete in whatever I decided to pursue within paintball. I transitioned from woods to speedball (that's what it was called back then), and did a 3 man tourney. Speedball was still quite a bit different then. I don't think I ever shot more than a hopper plus pod in those games...

Here's what I bought:
Marker: Spiderweb Red/black Ego 8: $400 ($412 after fees)
Included upgrades: Techt Hush bolt, Pops ASA, Virtue OLED, and I think an upgraded reg (will need to check)
Dye Liquid Red Rotor with speedfeed, mint: $95
Crossfire 48/4500 cf tank with Ninja reg, red valken tank cover, & free hydro test; $75
Dye I4: $65
Used PE Distortion pants: $45

I still have gloves, jersey, and a crappy pod pack and pods I won for winning a tourney, plus the pants hold two pods.

Is there anything I'm missing? I'm hoping to head to a field this weekend to check everything out and play. I know the gun, hopper, and tank work, but I didn't have any paintballs to shoot so I have no idea how well the gun is functioning ( I did buy it from a PE tech, so it should be in good shape. Looks brand new. I plan to use the Evil Pipe barrel kit, unless its not up to snuff anymore.

I pieced it all out individually,
and the total to my door was $692.

My plan would be to do some form of speedball, but I'm weary its going to be pure paint throwing these days (part of the reason I got the EGO in case I need to Lol). Maybe the days of bunkering are over...

I just got the gun yesterday so don't even know how to change modes, but I believe it's on some sort of PSP 3 round burst mode, 12bps. Can't believe how easy it is to shoot 12 bps these days. Shooting around 8bps on the cocker required skill lol.

Sorry for the verbosity of this post, I just wanted to detail everything so that you could advise on my situation effectively. LMK your thoughts on gear, and paintball of today. That way I have an idea of what I'm walking into this weekend.

I'm gusssing your marker doesn't have an on/off asa, where there's a knob to air up or degass?

If that's the case empty your tank, then screw it in all the way, and just leave it on. Or make sure its empty when you finish for the day.

What's happened now is the tank pin is pushed, so the air is released and will air up your marker. But since the tank is halfway in, you've got pressure within the asa which makes it hard to turn.


To make post legit:
Marker- Victory V2
Tank- 68/4500 Ninja w/slp pro
Loader-Dye rotor
Pod pack- Nxe elevation

Not bad IMHO so long as the marker is in good working condition.

You will have even more fun comparing how much you spend on paint!
