What do you already have? Anything? What do you need? Just a marker geared for speedball, or do you want something that's got all of the modes and whatnot to play tournaments with?

Lots of blanks to fill in before you can start making purchases.

What's the the negativity man? I'm going to need you to be less of a negative Nancy and more of a Positive Patty. If you're going to help the guy, at least be cool about it.

OP, If you buy used you can snag a workable setup for $300. It won't be anything special, but it'll get you on your feet and ready to play a bit of ball. You should be able to get a used tank in good shape for $100-ish and that'll leave you $200-ish for the gun, which puts you in Gen3 Timmy, SLG/Rail/PM5-6, Ion, Mini, DP G3 / Fusion type territory. You might even snag an Ego6 for that sort of price, but most of the '06's I've seen under $200 are "well loved" you might say.

For the record I still use a PM6 for speedball, and it rips. There are several guns that will keep up for ~$200. They might not be top of the line but once you get on your feet, you'll be able to guage what a newer gun might do for your game.

i agree with Rymo100, your best bet is to go with a Proto PM6, Dye DM6, or 05/06/07 Planet Eclipse ego, (keep in mind, when these guns came out in 2006ish, they were 1000 bucks). If you want to go newer, look into Dangerous Power G3's, Invert Minis, and even Proto Rails. As for a tank, you'll need to go HPA, so take about 50 some odd dollars and buy a steely 48/3000 tank off of ansgear.com or punisherpb.com. The Guerilla Air 48/3000 steely tank will be your best bet. For a hopper, Viewloader Vlocity's are now 32 bucks online on ansgear.com, that price is over 100 dollars off what they were when they first came out, i've owned two, probably the best hopper on the market bang for buck. hope this helps out.

edit- apparently ansgear.com and punisherpb.com no longer sell the vlocitys. i went ahead and tried to hook you up with some links, and couldn't find them, i suppose what you could do now is look throug the hopper section in the Buy Sell Trade and find a cheap Halo or Vlocity for around 30 bucks.

anyhow, heres a link to a tank that will best suite you, its 37 bucks. plus shipping, very very good price for a tank - http://www.ansgear.com/Guerrilla_Air...483000tank.htm

well if you are just playing rec ball I would just pick up a steelie for 35$ which leaves you 200 for the gun and 50 for a day of play.... after all what good is a setup without money to play?

i would never suggest a steelie tank to anyone. you will pay 50 a small heavy 3k steel tank, when you can invest and spend 80-100 to find a lighter tank that will allow you to play more each fill. The tank is one portion of your setup you should invest into and get something nice. the Tank and the Mask are the 2 most important purchases in my opinion.

also, take this guys advice into consideration, this is a very valid point, as for the guy saying you cant get a ''setup'' for 300, you are wrong, very very wrong. Not all tanks are 150 bucks.

i'm going with cheapest option, i do see your point, but for 40 bucks, it provides an air source to your marker, 100 bucks takes up alot of his budget, especially since he wants to play along with this money, just trying to help out. also, a mask is the MOST important part in paintball, invest in a good one for sure.

This is NOT "BST" please go elsewhere. And for OP I would recommend a GOG envy and then a Ninja grey ghost 68/45 or if your a smaller player 50/45. I highly recommend you stay away from stealies.

Hmmm... A speedball setup for $300?


I fit includes the gear, then...


-JT Proflex, get a second strap so you can double strap it.

-Spyder Electra (the 2009 models that they keep selling new come with Tadao boards and are like $100 now, I think. They're actually pretty damn good and with a TechT bolt or an NDZ, MaddMann or AKALMP lower tube upgrade, the thing will rip shreds that much harder and more consistently/quietly/efficiently)

- Invert Too. Stock, they're $45 new. Awesome loaders. If upgrades are wanted, a virtue board and magna clutch will take you a loooooooooong way for very little.

- some 3000psi alloy tank. The newer name brand ones have amazing and adjustable regulators as well as being much lighter while having the same air capacity as the typical ****ty steel air tanks KEE makes.

- Some quality knee/shin (not knee only) and elbow pads. The Eclipse, DYE, NXe and JT ones made after 2007 were GREAT.

- and lastly. A container of Lurker Lube and a full set of ball end steel allen keys in standard and metric sizes. These will be your best friends and key to keeping ALL your guns in the future happy, well functioning shooters.


If you can spare the dough, I advise finding a solid barrel for the Spyder as well in something along the lines of 12". A CP classic one piece in .685 bore will do just great, but something like a 12" evil pipe kit or even a Critical 100g barrel will do even greater.
