look into a rail, or if you want to go the cheaper route, an ion.

where you are tho, for your level, kids play with there spyders and tippmanns, so dont worry, just have fun!

get an 07 ego to show you mean buisiness jk The guns I would want from least to greatest are promaster, mini, ion, rail, some freestyle, some shocker, some timmy, 06-07 pm or dm, etek, 05-06 ego, nexus sl66 dark ego, 07 ego, Blackout ego.

Start with the Pilot. Seriously, a Spyder can keep up with the competition at a low level. Playing tourneys isn't cheap, and you're gonna need money for entry and paint, and practices. I'd be looking at different guns and trying em out at the field and find one you like. If you want to buy new, look at either an Ion or a PMR. Both are good guns out of the box and can keep you up with the competition. If you don't mind buying used. Look into Shocker SFTs, PM5s, DM4s, 2k2-2k5 Timmys, 04 Cyborgs. All of those can be gotten for $300-450 and are still very good guns. May not be the lightest or smallest, but will definitely be good guns.

Be more specific about your team, plans and your experience and I can help you narrow down your choices.

i had a hard time reading it.

I would not suggest dropping 400 into an ion, if you ever wanted a new gun you would have lost a lot of money.

My choice as stated: The Proto Matrix Rail

Lasoya promasters are $200 brand new now...

The promaster shoots awesome, prefer it over my ion; it also feels higher quality.
