Are you asking for gear specifics? As in which what we think is the best gear...

Mask
Marker
Tank
Hopper
Knee/Elbow pads
Pants

I would say those above are essential for tourney ball. Maybe add a gearbag but you'd be good to go with that list

I would get a new or used Etek 5. Things was awesome and very reliable, I loved mine. Besides a mask that fits you the other I would look into is a hopper. I love my spire, but rotors are pretty good too.

You can find used Geo 3s for 350-500! They are quality markers have one as my backup. Spires all the way. Ninja SL tank if you wanna splurge.

IS your budget for a whole setup $3-500, or is that just the gun budget?

I agree. If you used to shoot an ego you will love a geo. You could also just get a used 08 ego for < $250 which would be a solid option. I know there are a couple floating around that are still in great shape.

Don't forget a good pod pack and some pods. Plenty of affordable options out there as well.

A used Geo 2 or 3 are great options. Even an ego11 can be found sub $500 range. as for loaders, HK army TFX is my favorite and Spire is another great choice. Any carbon fiber tank will work well but, as mentioned above, if you wanna splurge get a ninja sl tank.
