Getting back in the sport (Houston)

What's up!

I've been out of the sport since '07. Used to play on a team in japan when I was in the Marine Corps.

Looking to get back into it and i've been shopping around. Man gear has come a long way haha

Been thinking about getting the Ego LV1 and putting a dye rotor on it.
Any suggestions?

I live near downtown houston FYI

That's what I currently shoot is a lv1 and a rotor. Awesome combo, shoots ropes consistently!

Lmk if you need some medium sized pants also! Or random crap.
I also just got back last month after stopping in 08

i would suggest buying used stuff here of the nation instead of buying everything brand new, most of the time you can find stuff in good condition for fairly cheap. we are all planing on going to legends paintball sunday if you want to join.

I've dug pretty deep in the classifieds here and cant really find anything i want. IF something pops up ill be sure to snag it here before buying new.

I'm out of town right now (offshore oil rig) but i should be back next weekend for some play time. Its been a long time, cant wait haha

Ego Lv1, Dye Rotor (steamboat), Ninja SL 68/45, Dye i4 mask (maybe the white/gold 09 or black/gold 09) , and some new 2014 dye/proto pants/jerseys.. might get the c14's or UL's.. or both.
Then the misc. gear, pods, swabs, packs, etc..

Im starting from scratch

the hard deciding factor is color scheme.
If you wanted all the crazy color combos that are available now you had to get it done custom back when i played. I cant believe how many options we have now

Thinking i might get a Midnight LV1 and put white grips on it. That would look sick with the Steamboat Rotor and a white PE tank cover on that all black ninja tank.

I have brand new red i4s you can have for 75 if you meet up with us to play. They have clear lenses so you may want tint or hd.

I have a few jerseys too, depending on your size. You almost have to break down on pants for new though IMO. I have my tore up pants and my grass pants to play with lol

Not cool to hear about klrs shimmy, that's what I got I wanted to try something different.
