Upgrade to a better mask like a jt proflex or vforce profilers.
Better loader such as an invert too, used rotor, used z2, pinokios are going for cheap
Ninja carbon fiber tank! It will be so much lighter and hold a lot more air. Get those and then worry about upgrading your gun and other gear

I would suggest arm/knee pads for some extra protection so you can start getting more physical (sliding and diving) whenever you feel ready to do so

Hey good to see another Edge baller on here! I would definitely invest in a good mask, your eyesight is very important and it's nice to have a mask that doesn't fog in any situation. I really like my E-flex, if you are at the field when I'm there sometime I will let you check it out and my other gear. I'm always willing to help people out at the field even though I don't work there lol.

Get into some proflexes if you can...good investment, especially for the price!

Empire/Invert helix thermals are only $30 and have the SAME lens that is on the $110 E-Flex, it just has a rigid bottom instead of the soft. Damn good mask for the price.

V-Max= <$50 or crazy cheaper if used

Eclipse Etek 1,2 or 3= $125-$250
I would steer you toward an Etek simply because the simplicity will be MUCH more forgiving than a dye matrix for a newer player, and they 3 all shoot GREAT. Older used dye guns can be pretty temperamental when it comes to maintenance. And if you shoot an Etek it is efficient enough that your 48/3000psi would work fine until you can get a nicer tank, no need to change that yet. AND the Etek has a fantastic barrel that you will never need to upgrade.

Yes, we had a great year last year taking 4th at PSP Chicago and in the AES series we won a trip to world cup. But unfortunately we didn't end up going, and some players have moved away over the winter. I am currently training with the Spartans and with a few teams up in Salina. Looking for a home again.

Sad too, we had the BEST team in KS I believe last year hands down, but that's paintball, gotta rebuild

Matte at NPS has V-Max's for $50 and V-max 2's for $80. The V-Max will do 15-17bps all day on ramping and is crazy durable and simple, you can't go wrong, the V-Max 2 is a newer crazy fast 25+bps version of the V-Max.

Before buying anything I'd buy a high end mask. I had that same mask for probably a year and a half.. And getting a better mask was my best buy to date. You'll get rid of the horrible fogging issue, and the mask is just so uncomfortable. Well that's the experience I had with the mask.

I'm going to buy a vmax this or next week but I'll probably get a summer job so thatll be the first thing i'll buy with the money earned. (I'm going to get a proflex)
