I've been reading about the HPA tanks and I saw that Special Ops is selling a 62CI HPA tank for super cheap. I've read that the general rule of thumb is that the number of shots you get is #ci * 10, but of course it varies by gun. I have a Tippmann 98c, and for a woodsball game, how good is 620 shots? Obviously the more expensive HPA tanks get way more shots, but is it really necessary? I'm sure that's subject to point of view since some players like to use pumps, but I thought I wold ask anyway. Just to make sure I'm right, once you fire roughly around 620 shots with this tank, it's time for a refill yes? I know, newb question, but I like to be 110% positive on everything before I choose an upgrade/product.

So, to put it simply, would a 62ci HPA tank be a good investment or not for the $49.99 asking price?

Sorry, I meant 62ci 3000PSI. Since you mentioned it, though, what's the difference between 3000PSI and 4500PSI? Power's obviously one of 'em, but I haven't noticed that one gets more shots than the other...

It is pretty big diffference on the amount of shots.

3000 PSI and 4500 PSI can mean the difference between a WHOLE lot of shots. A 68-4500 tank on a marker with average gas consumption can get about 1254, whereas the same marker with a 68/3000 can only get 836. That, and most 4500 tanks are about 150$. and usually carbon wraped or wrapped in carbon fiber.

EDit: for the tank your looking at, you'll get about 762 shots, but thats also a steel one, so it'll last the longest, but will also be the heaviest, wheras a carbon fiber one will only last 15 years, but be the lightest possible.

also, the website I used to calculate the shots was this one right here: http://www.scubatoys...ntballshots.asp

Its nothing to do with power, its how much air the tank can hold. All HPA tanks have a regulator on them, so they should all output approximately the same pressure. Around 850 PSI for high pressure, 450 for low pressure. Also, 4500 tanks are carbon fibre, so they're lighter but more expensive.
