i figured this would be a good spot for this, but mods can move it if they want.


anyway, i was wanting to get a speedball setup so i could start trying to play speedball. here are the things i need. by the way, ive only got $1000 to spend altogether, and id like to keep the price as low as possible.

i need...

marker
hopper
pod pack
jersey if necessary (something classy. i was thinking neon yellow with purple polka dots and brown horizontal stripes lol. AGG)
mask



anyone have any ideas? remember the lower the price stays, the less mad my girlfriend will be at me. i just need suggestions on good gear

What do you already have? You can play speedball with anything you want. It just might seem more appropriate to come with an Ion or something than a fully MilSim'd A-5 :P:.

I would recommend going on pbnation b/s/t. You will find everything you need there for cheap. I would recommend,

Gun: ego 07, ego sl66, invert mini, dye dm7.
mask: empire events
pack: any of the nxe 07 and up are amazing
jersey and pants: Empire contact, dye c7- c8, eclipse distortion, draxxus.
Hopper: vlocity w/ gansta chip, empire magna.


All of these are good.

If you're wanting everything new here's what I recommend.
marker: Proto Rail or ICD Promaster
mask: V-force Profiler
tank: 68/4500 Crossfire or Pure Energy(Just make sure it is high pressure output so you can use it on your A-5 as well)
hopper: Halo B
pack: any 3+2 or larger will do as long as it's a good brand
pants and jersey are your call.
depending on where you buy everything from it'll cost $542 and up

Keep your mask, that doesn't really change from woodsball, save some bucks.

Though it's good to eventually get a spare for friends. Something better than a rental mask

Go look for an AKA Viking for sale in a B/S/T. You should be able to find one without the fancy milling for around $500, more for the more unique Vikings.

Vikings were way ahead of their time, don't let the old age (2003 or 2004 are the most commonly ones found for sale), they're just as a efficient if not more so than modern electros and they can keep up just fine.

From there, I'd recommend a Crossfire 70/4500 HPA tank. The hopper is pretty much up to you, but any of the higher end ones will work.

Vikings are a little bulky though. I would still recommend any ego 06 and up, dm6's and up, and cyborgs. All can be found around 700 and less.

Marker - DM7's are going for around $700-$900, depending on mods.
DM6's are pretty good though, and go for roughly $550-$600. Which is probably a good choice for you.
PM7's, these go for $450 NEW, and if you get one with the UL frame they're $500 NEW. That's a pretty good deal. (I bought a non UL PM7 and the grip was too big for my hands).

Hopper - well, anything is good, really. I'm actually pretty excited about the new NXe JRNY, but that's not quite out yet. A Halo, Magna or something along those lines will serve you well and should be around the $100 mark.

Pod pack - all down to preference - depending on if you only want to be carrying three pods, or eight. The former, well, anything is good for you! Take your pick, what looks good to you? The latter? A compression pack like the Dye Assault pack which compresses as you remove pods, and allows you to actually carry eight pods. :laugh: Either way, something that helps you remove the pod (by the way of the elastic looping at the top which pushes down) is a good idea.

Mask - well, you shouldn't need a new one. But I love my VForce Profilers.

Jersey - again, one of those "what looks good to you?" things... I like my Proto '07s, but I'm looking at some Redz '08s because they look SICK.

Pick up a stock class Phantom, a couple 10 ball tubes, and a really really fancy jersey. You'll be laughed at the first game, then be feared the second :P

Look for a FEP quest... Theyre supposed to be good. Some dealers have them for 800 others for 400. You'll also be the only guy out there with a quest.
