Getting back into paintball

So the time has come where Ive decided to get back into paintball, it took my brother to get me back into it. Last time I played was back in 05 so its been awhile. So far I've got a tank from him and a pack. Last time I played I was shooting an Ebladed autococker and an older Angel. So much stuff has come out since then I have no clue where to start. So looking for suggestions! my price range on a marker is gonna be about $400-450. Any help is appreciated!

imho, marker tech hasn't significantly improved in a long time. Meaning, they don't shoot faster (practically speaking, although some of the hoppers are faster now), they aren't more efficient.

You could get something good in the 350 range whether it be an axe or a nice used 07 highend(nothing newer will be any better, just be a few oz lighter and the least little bit 'smoother')

I would agree with this, my first marker was an ego7 and I loved it, never had a problem with it. Older highends are the way to go!

As i say in every thread like this older ego 07 and up. Solid efficient and easy to maintain.

ego 7 is a very good marker, you can get some good bolt upgrades and everything for that sucker too.
welcome back to the grind.

Axe, ego 07, ego 08, droid, vice, etc would be my choices in that price range.

Hop down to a field and shoot a few different guns if you get the chance. Just like test driving a car really: something might sound great on paper and get terrific reviews, but you might hate how it feels. The nice thing nowadays is that you have lots of terrific options in that range.

Well I was hoping to get an ego or axe but was unable to find one cheap enough or that I liked. I was able however to pick up a NXT shocker with full freak kit, cp Asa, laser eyes, dynasty board, virtue grips and some other ups for $300. Can anybody tell me if I got a good deal? Pics to come
