Upgrading my son

Trying to look for a new setup for my boy but I never really owned 50cals before he has the splat master series but he wants to move up into the air/co2. What are good guns and hoppers that I could look at without breaking the bank. Would like to try something electronic

Lol I got a chuckle from the title of this post. Start him off with a tippmann. Tippmanns are more than likely to work. Great beginner guns. Also if you ever encounter an issue, tippmann/or gi has some good customer service

I thought about tippmann but it would be to big and bulky for him. Thanks for the spyder option do u know of any 50 cal hoppers?

Hey Sammy -

Good job helping your son take the next step in paintball! There is something special about sharing a great hobby like paintball with one of your children.

Like previous posters have stated, Spyder makes the Rapid-E electronic loader for .50 caliber. Try contacting your local Spyder/KEE dealer for info on the loader and also .50 caliber Spyder marker options.

I hope your son enjoys his progression up the paintball ladder!

50 caliber & caliber with the reliability of a Tippmann:

We use these as our Rental guns at our Indoor Arena. They work great and can shoot either caliber by simply swapping the bolt (takes about 2 minutes). Very cool, and once he move up to 68 caliber it can be used for that also.

When I saw "Upgrading my Son" I just had to read it.
Invert Mini's and Proto Rails are on the smaller side of electros that won't break the bank.
