First a nice mask, then a electronic hopper, last a nice carbon tank.

I'd spend some time on the B/S/T's and find some good deals. GO try some goggles on at the nearest shop ( if you have one). I'd recommend Proflexes or Profilers if you wanna spend about $50, but $30 can get you some HElixes or Provantages.

most 68/4500 size tanks tend to go for around $100 on here. that leaves you $40 for a mask which should be plenty for a nice, lightly used used mask. (hell its almost enough to go buy a nice one new)

its still a good idea to go to a shop and try some masks on. you never know exactly how ones going to fit. it might be the most comfortable thing for one person whereas someone else will really hate it.

I wouldn't buy a used mask, I am not a germaphobe or anything, but think about all the sweat and nastyness that would be on a used mask. Besides if you buy one from a shop you get to try it on and make sure it fits. Hope this helps!

Proflexes and Events are both phenomenal, have lots of protection, and sell around $40 lnib.

and yeah, $100 should get you at LEAST a nice 45/45 tank.

Just bought a pair of events, and god are they nice. sexy nice soft ears. I have profilers that I was using before, and those are just about as nice. Profilers are pretty cheap, at about $60 last I checked, new. As for a tank... you'll drop most of your money there. I'd save up a little more; even $30 would give you some more wiggle room for a good 68/4500 carbon fiber. If you do decide to go for used, just make sure that the hydro is still in by atleast a couple years, or it's not really going to be worth the purchase.

get a used tank for around 100, and that leaves you 40 dollars for a mask. i would save another 20 and get invert avatars, or vforce profilers

I got a JT proflex bottoms in red brand new, soft ears(1 torn) and might have some straps somewhere. Just pay for shipping and all you need is the frame. Just laying around and might as well give it to someone that needs it. Let me know

Find a proflex for no more than $60 (limited edition my ***. Just get a frame, lens, bottom, ears, and 2 straps. poifect)

Find a loader like a revvy (sell anywhere between $20 and $30). You don't really need much more for a looong time.

Find a tank like a 68/45 or some decent sized-air system that will last you ages... then buy it. used.
