Lightweight Setups

I've started using my Line SI Bushmaster in a lightweight setup and it's been working great. Set up includes a remote coil with a 7oz tank on my belt, small 45 round WGP "Ammo Box" hopper, and lightweight Vents mask with foam all around the goggles for lightweight and protection. For clothing I wear a t shirt and cargo pants which allow me to carry whatever I need.

This setup is awesome because it makes the gun so much lighter which allows great snap shooting and I'm lighter overall so I move great. This is important since I play 3 vs. 3 or 4 vs. 4 games against all players shooting semi-auto.

So, I'm wondering if anyone else has tried this kind of setup and what you think of it because it makes paintball really fun for me.

I use an old trracer with a wgp ammo box and a bucket changer for my light setup, the marker weighs like nothing setup that way.

I have started to prefer it over my PGP :O

VSC Phantom with 50 rd hopper, 3.5 oz tank, and a stock is about the deadliest setup I can think of in terms of snap shooting and mobility.

Except for those of us who can't aim SC Phantoms.

The lightest setup I had was a Micro phantom, with a dropout changer and a hockey stock. I will have another, some day...

Doesn't add any weight at all and with some practice, can be quite accurate. It's also very air efficient.
