One of the most common questions new players ask is what gear you should buy. We understand how hard it can be as an inexperienced player to choose the gear that's best for you, and it's something we'd love to help you with. In fact, PbNation has created a forum just to answer that question for you.
The versus forum
is a place where you can ask questions like this to your heart's content and discuss all the pros/cons of every product on the market. If you're looking for reviews on a specific item, check out the reviews section
where we have players sharing their thoughts on hundreds of products. If you still have a question about a specific product, visit the manufacturers forums
for more information. If you want a fast answer to your question, be sure to read the stickies at the top of each forum to see if they cover it before posting a new thread.
Once you've figured out what to buy, you may be wondering what a fair price is for the gear you're looking at. PbNation has you covered with our appraisal forum
. Here you can discuss fair pricing with other members and find out if you're getting a good deal.
Please enjoy these resources and use them as much as you'd like. In an effort to make sure our new players get the help they need, we ask that you post questions about what to buy, what's better, or what something is worth in the appropriate section (versus, appraisal) rather than putting up a new thread in the main area of new player help.
This way, you'll get a fast answer from somebody that wants to help with comparisons and appraisals without cluttering the main page.
