i need a nitro tank and a new hopper

02-16-2007, 06:06 PM
my 2nd favroite color body kit. My first is the blue. ;)

What hopper/tank do you plan on getting?

02-16-2007, 06:12 PM
Probably a a $60 tank and a $50 hopper
PMI Pure Energy Fixed N2 Tank - 48ci 3000psi
Odyssey Halo Backman LCD TSA Paintball Loader

If I make another suggestion on hopper. Tank is fine but the hopper isnt THAT good.

If you plan on getting another gun in the future, then that hopper probably wouldnt be best. I'd recommend an eggy 2. Cheap and fast. They can become faster for a small price tag of 20 dollars.

Just a suggestion.

here are some of my upgrades i would like to get (when i win the lottery)
Custom Products Ion Sling Trigger
Virtue Ion Laser Breakbeam Eye System - Green
Virtue Ion Board
Smart Parts Freak Junior 06 Impulse Barrel - 14 Inch - Blasted Black
Kingman Java Preset N2 Tank - 68ci 4500psi

If you get virtue for it the Halo TSA wont keep up with it.

02-16-2007, 06:17 PM
I agree on the TSA not being a great hopper for an ION. I would reccomend looking in the B/S/T section either here or pbn for a used halo b or empire b. An eggy would work as well but the halo's and empire's are very customisable(sp?) and if you upgrade to a better gun they will work for that gun too.

ill probably get an egg but i need a job.
im 15 and turning 16 in a few months.

02-16-2007, 06:38 PM
I'm 16, turned it in August. I dont have a job. My mom pays me to shovel the driveway or mow the lawn. Adds up. :)

I got 10 bucks wed for shoveling the driveway 4 different times. :)
I broke one of the shovels, but I got the job done. :)

As for hoppers, I've always used eggs until I got a halo not too long ago. I still prefer eggs. ;)

dude i thougth the same thing i got a tsa with the stcok board and it didn't do so hot save up alittle more and get a vlocity man it will do u good.

02-16-2007, 06:42 PM
I dont think he really needs a vlocity even with the high end guns...Eggs/halos will do fine,e specially if you can find cheap ones that work. :waytogo:

02-16-2007, 06:46 PM
i do mad stuff for my parents and they say when ever u go out ill give u $20

02-16-2007, 06:48 PM
I also dont eat at school. i get $20 for 2 weeks and I just leave it in my room. I can survive without food. ;)

But I try to work for stuff.

02-16-2007, 06:52 PM
ha i used get $20 a week but my mom makes me make a lunch now

02-16-2007, 07:12 PM
i can go without eating lunch but our school system uses this weird lunch account thing so my mom puts $20 in the account ahead of time and if i dont eat it just sits there and i can only use it for lunch (cant take it out either - too many kids would use their parents money to buy pot :D :mad: :( )

I noticed one of the most important things you forgot to list for upgrades...

A QEV! (Quick Exaust Valve) With a Virtue board and no QEV, you might as well be using the stock board. They are REALLY cheap too. Also, might I suggest a new clamping feedneck and possibly a different tank. Kingman tanks arn't really that good. Personally, I like Crossfire tanks. Nitroduck is also good I hear. (QEV and new feedneck are the two most important upgrades to the ION besides a new trigger and a barrel in my book)

What type of field are you playing at? If its indoors and you have easy access to air, I would say to for a 45/4500 tank. That way you can have the gun closer to you, and make it more comfortable.

Thats not always more comfortable. Unless you push the ASA WAY out, a 45/45 is just uncomfortable for most people. Being all bunched up is NOT good form. Unless he's got super short arms, he should get a 68/45.

I am 6'1 and i dont have short arms
I have a new design feeding neck
and i just ordered a PMI Pure Energy Fixed N2 Tank - 72ci 3000psi
and i will probably get an eggy

Eggy FTW

Shunut is sending me some sticker and pb34 im buying some from so ill be covering my eggy and gravity feed with them. Plus eggys, in my opinion, work good on most guns. If you need to shoot 25+bps then you need to play pump to realize you dont need 25 bps to be good. And the eggys are plenty fast. ;)
