i would suggest getting a hopper 2. because u want to feed balls well. then shoot balls well with a tank. and then u want to see well with a mask. then lastly buy a gun.

Get a hopper first. Don't listen to the people that tell you to get a Rotor, Spire, or z2. They are expensive and honestly, you don't need something that feeds 30+ bps because (hopefully) you shouldn't be shooting that fast. A Halo would be a great hopper. I used to have one (sold it because I got a Pinokio) and my friend has one and they work great. Look on the B/S/T and try to find a cheap used one. Then, you can use the money you save to put towards a better tank.

Considering you have an electronic gun, an electronic hopper would be next. But yeah a good mask should be after that if you dont have that then a pod pack and pods.

hopper would probably be your best bet.

I'd say hopper, but you probably can find a deal somewhere that gives you both, like amazon has a 3000psi tank and a halo too for like $100 i believe.

Mask, tank, hopper, THEN gun. But since you already have an electronic marker, and a decent air tank, get an electronic hopper.

Go with the new hopper, the tank will work as is.


Also take a look at how much you shoot per game. If you can hold off on buying a new tank for as long as you can that means you can out the money towards paint and other necessary gear.

Tank upgrade: more capacity, lighter weight
Hopper upgrade: reduced chop rate, feed as fast as your gun.

I'd go with the hopper. Check BST and get yourself a nice hopper at half retail.

I have had a Halo B hopper since I started in paintball. I currently do have a Rotor but my girlfriend uses my Halo when she plays.. still works fine. Great starter hopper for sure!

Definitely hopper. You've already got decent air you just need a hopper to keep up with the gun.
