    Just travelling around asia atm, looking to find myself and all that jazz

    Ill be back in July and will eventually get into the sport, ive been doing some research for what a beginner should be looking for... Good mask, electronic marker etc

    Just wanted a second opinion on what, lets say a £500 - £600 budget could get me

    Thanks guys!

    I would say get an used mask and an used etek marker.(make sure it working perfectly). and maybe an used tank if it's not our of date,tested and in a good price.
    am not sure if 500-600 would be enough for full set up woth hopper, tank, electronic marker if you want a quality set up though.

    I was looking at the Etek! Hopefully some Etha2's will come available as Christmas looms closer I was thinking of buying a used steelie tank, a lot cheaper by the looks of things. It will be my first electronic marker so I'm looking for reliable and easy maintenance then High end. I've seen Axe Pros go for £200 and the Gteks price has gone down so hopefully the used markers drop till. Fingers crossed ha

    A new fibre 4500psi cylinder is about £150 new, and generally £80 second hand

    A new aluminium (often called steelie) is £30 to £40. At that price it's hardly worth the effort to buy secondhand, and unless done face to face the cost of postage will off set any saving.
    I wouldn't bother with a second hand aluminium unless it is included in a sale - and the seller can find an appropriate method to post it

    It's an answer to facebooks rule change banning paintball gun sales
    Treat it like any second hand sales, assume its not secure. Never use bank transfer, use PayPal and don't do any fee evading. Or if local enough arrange to meet face to face
