There are two principle issues you need to deal with if you decide to be an active solo pvp'er.

First is cost. To some people ' Blob ' might mean 20 to another 200. A Velator and a Falcon is a blob when you're solo'ing.
You WILL loose ALOT of ships. Get used to it and plan accordingly.

The second bigger issue is actually finding action. For whatever reason the last few months have seen a dramatic downturn in low sec solo roamers so good fights are getting very hard to come by. That said, this is one of the biggest influencers in ship choice imo. Not many people run from a solo incursus, tristan, riffter, merlin, vexor, arbi, rupture. If you decide to run an ishtar, vengeance, dram, curse, vaga, t3 ... dont expect as many people to stick around. Fly T1 junk and you're more likely to have a fight come to you ( like it or not ) than flying fancy.

Frigs: Riffter, incursus, tristan, merlin, punisher
Cruisers: Vexor, thorax, stabber, rupture, caracal, arbi, omen
BC: Vaga-cane, myrm, nano-drake

Imo the best line of ships for solo PVP are t3 cruisers. That is, if you either already are very pro at solo PVP or if you have a nearly bottomless wallet (so you can afford many losses while learning).

If you're still learning solo PVP (or, like me, can't afford 1+bil ISK for a fairly high-risk ship) then I'd go with battle cruisers (for example Hurricane). They are both cheap to lose, don't require that many skills to fly and are still strong enough to hold your own against a few decent-sized targets.

If you're really poor or inexperienced then I'd even go further down and fly only with t1 cruisers for the beginning. You won't be winning many fights with this but it will allow you to develop a feeling for PVP (when is it a trap for example) without losing billions of ISK.

If you're starting out with solo PVP then I'd fly a ship you can replace at least 50 times without running out of ISK.

You need to chose the ship that will get you a fight, means you need to know your target

Every ship has advantages and draw backs, Eve is a simple accounting program with credits/debits

If you chose the wrong ship for the situation... say a rifter to fight a neut double webbed cane you will typically lose even if the cane is a 30 day old noob

1st you wanna fight, so showing up in a Vindi or t3 may not get you that unless ofc you wanna fight a small fleet, then you need to counter the counter counter, perhaps not what you're looking for...
