    Hi wanting to get into tournaments but not sure what's a good place to start when looking at markers for tournaments. Any ideas?

    You need lots of things not just a marker.
    A mask should be number 1 in my opinion,budget £50-£100 new maybe a little more,try before you buy.
    As for a decent marker,secondhand you could pick a very decent marker for £200+ depending on what you want.

    Yeah I know, I've factored the cost of all the equipment in so have got a budget of about £250 on a marker.

    I've just got myself a gtek and love it ,I upgraded from an Etha (also a great marker )
    One thing you need to Consider is noise when shooting !.
    Do you like to be heard or not ?
    Poppets like the etek are loud .
    Spools like the gtek are quiet .
    I like single head shots so the Etha and gtek fits me well .

    Another vote for Gtek. Superb quality marker for the money although the new etha 2 has the same gamma core in it so will shoot like the gtek and be cheaper.

    Haha now I've got something else to think about, thanks though, I'm liking the sound of the gtek.
