I'm always on the look out to find the best and most reliable product out in the market today. So after a lot of research I can honestly say that my head is spinning with no signs of stopping! How does one choose?
You guys are most likely the best source of information out there, next to the consumer reports catalog, but can they honest say that they've been shot at with a paintball gun? I doubt it!
So I come to you for advice. What is the best tank, N2, that you would swear by?

I really want to know. Make your voices heard! :dodgy:

I just had to edit this, thanks to all your input and as well as discussing this throughly with my local PB vendor, I am 80% positive that I will be getting the Crossfire 92ci 4500psi carbon fiber tank. This will be an EXTREMELY great addition to my gear.

The only reason I say 80% is that If I can find a MacDev with the same qualities as the Crossfire for the same price, I might swing that way.
Other then that, look for me on the field with a Crossfire across my back.

Only thing now...is getting the cash to buy it! LOL.

After deleting the other two identical threads you made...

The dxs tanks hand down.

The have the best tank and reg combo on the market...unless you wanted to start making a custom tank they are the best you can get...their 68 are the same size as a 45 but hold as much air as a normal 68 the regs are as good or better than crossfire and the tanks blow everything else on the market away...except the cp but both cp and dxs use the same tank manufacture.

Peace,
UWANNAGO

I recommend crossfire. Although they don't make a tank big enough for me anymore. I like my 114 crossfire tank. It is only 3k and they don't make a 45.

Yeah sorry about that one, I kept hitting some crazy key that made my post disappear...although, I assumed it did. Never the less thanks for deleting them. Oh and thanks for your input afterwards as well.

Oh by the way, I have an X7 with Air thru stock kit, the coil handles only 3000psi, would getting the DXS 3000 psi still be a good choice?

yes, the tank can take 3000psi, but only puts out about 800psi. that is what the regulator is for, youre the tank holds 3000psi so you can put more air into it, but the regulator only allows about 800psi out, unless you have a low pressue tank which is around 250psi i believe, buy you will need high pressure for an x7

The tank is not actually outputting 3000 PSI, just 800.

I personally recommend a MacDev Conquest system. They're, hands-down-the best tanks on the market fitted with the best regs out there as well.

I voted for Crossfire because I'd say that they're the best common tank.
But in all honesty, I'd have to agree with Marauder that the MacDev tanks are the very best you can get.

I feel bad I didn't even enter that brand, I've looked online and it seems as if every rating for it is stuck at 9.5 or 10. I guess that's good huh? I see prices are ranging anywhere from $260.00 to over 300.00 dollars, is that the normal range for the MacDev?

If that's the case, what do you think would be a great tank for the money?

Oh and by the way, every one here has been incredibly helpful, I really appreciate that, thanks!

^Yeah, they're expensive. If you don't want to spend that much (who can blame you) then you should really look into getting a Crossfire.

I'd get a CrossFire if money is a factor, or the MacDev if you feel like spending that much.

Carbon Fibre Crossfire would be my choice as well... if only I could afford one :panzer:.

-Z3R0

EDIT: My first HPA tank I get is probably going to end up being a steel tank though, since they're cheaper, a little more durable, and I think need rehydro testing less often and have a longer life. Weight isn't that huge of an issue for me really, but I'd try to get a CF tank if I could afford it. But in the next year or so I can't see myself getting a CF tank, possibly a steel one, or probably sticking with CO2 for a while.
