Another "What upgrades for my Ion thread" (opinions needed!)

Hey guys. I've been putting a lot of work in at my job and have hoarded enough money for some serious upgrades. I plan on spending (initially) about $300. I've done some homework and have figured out the basics. Here's a list of the upgrades I want (and which specific makes). What I'm hoping--if it's not too much trouble--is that you guys can either confirm my choices or point me in the right direction. Here's what I'm thinking right now:

QEV
I'm thinking the 360 Qev will do the trick.

Trigger
Roller Trigger

ASA
Shocktech Dovetail ASA. Kind of hung up on this one, because I'm not sure if I want this or if a CP ASA Rail On/Off would work better.

Barrel
I'm kind of lost on this one. I'm thinking I need a barrel kit, but I'm really unsure as to which one. Freak kit has good reviews, and that's what I figured I'd originally get, but now I'm seriously considering an Evil Pipe kit. What do you guys think?

Feedneck
Q-Lock

I was also considering getting some gloves, a jersey, knee/elbow pads, and maybe slider shorts. I'm not sure how these would rank in importance though (compared to the gun upgrades).

I've also got one last question. It's a stupid question about barrel kits:

The Evil Pipe system. It says it comes with 5 backs, all 6in in length. Now, I think the kit comes with a front, so my questions are 1) What front barrel is it exactly? 2) If I get say, a 14in Front, plus a 6in back, does that make the barrel 20in? Sorry for the dumb question.

Any input would be really, really appreciated. Thanks guys.

on barrel kits, it's the combined length of front and back ie: 6 inch back + 8 inch front = 14 inch barrel.
As for ups in general its all personal preferance get the parts you want period.
If you play air ball, jersey,pants pads,gloves, ect = good idea.
again, with this gear as well, get the stuff you like that fits your budget.
hope this helps

edit: cp barrel kits and J&J kits are nice as well. i'm all about bang for the buck more than looks though.

Im really liking the J&J Elite kit for $77 http://www.firstcallpaintball.com/in... ucts_id=2982

Get the Firebolt imo.

I don't know how much you are willing to spend but Lucky Stages 2&3 are a good buy also. You will have to buy stage 3 off of somone though because it is sold out until mid-may. www.lucky-paintball.com

QEV is a good choice, Violent Products Scythe(only if the trigger you want is a CP), any ASA will do fine, I have a Q-lock and love it. As for the gear, I would get gun upgrades before jerseys and stuff. If you have camo, just play in that for now, that's what I'm doing.
