New marker?

I'm getting my tax return and may be willing to part with about $600-$800 of it for a new marker if I get very attracted to one. (I still loves my A-5). I want something more tournement style now that I have HPA. I have heard of some good ones but I wanted your opinions. What markers should I look into for a good front gun. Bad ones to avoid? I don't want one that is a money pit of upgrades... would rather buy one stock upgraded. Reliability is very important to me. Hopper suggestions also please.
Thanks!

get a Proto Matrix or Angel with a Halo B w/Rip Drive and if you got some money left over buy a Cheetah Board for the Halo.

Proto Matrix 05 is the best deal online now. Under $700.00 brand new on ebay. I am doing the same thing as you. But I know what I am getting, hopefully in black.

After the break in period the Proto is the best bang for your buck IMHO.

Thanks I will do a little research on the Matrix, I wonder if it comes in green. Is Matrix>upgraded Ion for the money? (Justice I know you have an ion and want the proto so I assume so). Are we talking a world apart?

haha no way. Proto is DM's lil bro, or cuzin. Dye makes Proto. And yes it comes in Olive which is an awesome color. Here is the link to some PM5's they are the ones for $699. http://www.actionvillage.com/is-b...intball-guns-proto-paintball-guns

Would I want to get the 05 or wait for the 06 price to drop? Any other suggestions besides an angel or the proto?

PM5: Matching Proto Barrel - Internal Modular LPR - Hyper-2 in line regulator - Revised Anti-Chop eye system - An industry first, composite eyeplate - Continuous 3 dimensional body design - Compact ergonomicly designed milling - Lightweight compact body - Proto Matrix Sticky grip - LED program control - Ergonomic 45 grip frame - Removable one peice FUSE bolt system - Adjustable trigger sensitivity

PM6: The new Matrix VI features jaw dropping body style, a new balanced on/off bottom line, adjustable clamp neck, a new lower pressure bolt kit, new and improved LPR, metal logo inserts and a two piece barrel. With all of that we still managed to shave .5 inches off the height and 4oz. off the weight of the marker. We built the Matrix VI with one idea in mind: to help put you at the top of the podium.

Both of them seem to be more then I need, so if I go with the PM it will most likly be the 05

Those two are the best bang for the buck like Justice said. But now if u wanna go cheaper...look into Ions, ProMasters, maybe Freestyles (this is higher end).

I was thinking about that! Is a great out of box one in my price range? I'd like to hear about this.

I would only get a paintball marker new. It can be old, but I need to be the only owner.

Hear of the ego? Any good? probably out of my price range.

I am wondering if I should just stick with my A-5 and spend the money enjoying play at some of the excellent senarios we have in FL. I do have some toy fever though, I will probably buy a new marker or firearm with this cash, I worked hard for it.

Proto Matrix 05 and halo B, maybe a board for the Halo... is all I would need to be setup with the new marker right? I do have an extra Q-loader bracket and mounting hardware, wonder what that would look like on a mag.

E-Mags arnt manufactured any longer. Thank you SP! So you could only really get one used or built. Best thing you could get imo.

P/DM5/6 would be a great gun as well if your looking for new.

Anyone make e-mags and sell them new pimped out for less then you could do yourself, like your paradigm?

Devil-mags are amazingggggg. The whole package is expensive, but you could just get the frame and then build off it.

I watched the video and also saw the size and shape. I am in awe... Don't know if I can justify spending $900 on a marker to myself. I gotta sleep on that one. My gf still wants to get her paradigm, we could have 2 mags if I got the deviled...

Another gun that you might be intrested in is either the R/T ULE mag or the TAC-ONE mag. If you want to play woods I would get the TAC but for speed and also woods you should get the ULE. Both of them are ready for warp feeders. The RT is $355 and the TAC is $450. Here is a couple links to both the guns
