How do you guys choose what color to get something in?

I'm planning ahead on what I want to buy so that I can save up money and make a spending plan but I've come to a roadblock. I'm going to buy a PMR, a new barrel, and a Dye Rotor. Well all of the colors of the barrel and rotor depend on the color of the PMR. I'm having a hard time choosing between Claret, Airforce 1, and Clear. This matters because it changes wether I get a Dye CF Boomstick or Stiffi Mamba. The Airforce 1 Navy blue color wouldn't allow me to do a Mamba because I went to the local store and checked both a blue mamba and AF1 PMR out and they just didn't look right together but I guess I could deal with a black CF boomstick. BTW my mask is the new Black/Gold i4.

matching is a waste of time. I get things by what looks the best individually. If everyting looks good individually, it looks good together. If you notice most people don't match gear. Usually I get the most unique color.

This man is right, go with the best equipment over the best look. I'd rather have something reliable then something thats appealing to the eye. Plus, I've made the mistake of coordinating some of my gear. In thought it seems like a good idea, but when you have it in front of you, it just looks wrong.

Personally I also think people who match all their gear w/ the same brand (example: someone who wears shoots all dye in matching blue) looks tacky...

no need to get a cf boom stick also lol. If you just get a regular ultralight its cheaper... Use the rest of it to buy some paint. If you get like all red gear or in your case all blue it looks gross and I usually say "wow they just got in and think buying all the same stuff makes them look pro" Go with whatever makes you happy though.

Get whatever color you like best. But as a general rule, black will go with anything. If there's not black, get grey. If you get a bunch of random colors, you could end up looking like Ronald Mcdonald. But you can never go wrong with black. Get black pants and you can wear any jersey with it. Get a black rotor and it will look right on any gun.

Its just that I'm getting a black rotor than a seperate blue top shell w/ quickfeed (it rains here in FL and being able to switch from quickfeed to lid to protect my paint from light rain is good). I have a nice light, airy hoodie that its my "jersey" right now, I'm getting pants first cuz my mom doesn't like that I play in jeans. I don't want to look pro, I just want to know cuz I see a lot of people that "color code" and wanted to know how they choose.

I usually spring for the cheapest price on something I want which usually means colors aren't always there. But as everyone said performance >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> looks.

Ya, I want cheap prices. I was gonna buy the Black/Golds from ANSgear but now I'm buying black i4s from Dick's cuz I have coupon for $30 off and then I'll but the Dyetanium Gold lense. I've made a choice on what I'm getting though cuz I'm not getting the quickfeed till after I get the PMR cuz I won't be doing any tournys til I get the PMR.

Color does matter, depending on where you play. No yellow in PSP.

As for apparel like to wear at least the same color, but brand isnt a big deal, although i do like proto. But as for my marker. i have a red marker and a black hopper with a blue tank cover lol. and many ppl on here say it doesnt matter, but i bet half the people that responded do match when they play. Especially matching with their team, it gives you a uniformed look. but if your just starting out, and ur not on a team, get the most quality for the lowest price and you'll be good.

if everything you have matches, you'll look like a scrub
