     I'm getting a stock A-5 on tomarrow, and I have $80 otherwise to spend.  What kind of gear should I get?  I'll just get 200 balls for under $10, either a 16oz Co2 tank or a 20oz Co2 tank, And goggles of some brand.

     If you have any suggestions, they'd be greatly appreciated!

almost all jt model goggles are great goggles. the v-force morph are great goggles as well. i recomend a thermal lense, so you dont experience fogging.

expecially with a tippmann, a 20 oz is worth it.

your also going to need a pod pack. the only way to determite what pack you like, is to try it on. different packs fit different people differently... there's a sentance for ya.

You have several choices to use that $80

1. Goggles

2. Double trigger

3. Barrel

4. Co2 tank

5. Ball hauling (harness)

6. A case of 2000 paintballs (most of brand name balls are under $60)

7. Drop forward

Theres more but, it depends on what type of game yer into....woodsball or speedball?

I was also wondering if anyone has heard of JT Head Sheild.  It seems like it would be comfortable, but I don't know if it would be entirely practicle.  Though it's only $30.00, and it seems pretty cool...

If you can, go to where they have it and ask if you can try it on and see if you feel comfortable wit it...

i have the JT Elite Headshield and it works great. doesnt fog up and stuff, and it's comfortable. it's a good mask. i'd say try it on then if you like it go for it. get a 20 oz CO2 (you wont be sorry), mask, pod pack if you want, J+J Ceramic barrel. and that would be about it. i'd say the barrel should be upgraded because it's not very good(a lot of people will tell you this).
