Biggest one with the highest PSI you can afford and carry easy.

^^That's not really the best answer.

To really answer your question we need to know if you will be running remote or carrying on gun? Will you have access to a fill station between games or will you need to have enough air for the day on one fill?

I would reccomend a 68/4500,dont get anything thats not carbon fiber.
if you go remote,you may want a bigger air system,or if your a big guy you may want a bit bigger tank.Im 6'2'' and i like using a 68/4500 or a 45/4500.
i dont know the efficency of the phenom,but if you play at a field with HPA fills you'll be fine,just dont carry more paint then you can shoot.
I miss the old days of sword beach and such

ok, well if you consider a college ball player about 6'6" 240 a big guy then thats me.lol it wont bother me to have a bigger tank. I would prolly run remote considering i would prolly have a new vest and bottle on my back. Now sometimes i would hook it to the gun but overall prolly be on my back. overall i didn't know what the ci meant with the tanks and if one was better than the other, sorry just major noob

Well besides the size, get a good brand of a tank. Ninja tanks are awesome :P

Look into a 68/45...Unless you want something even bigger...

Alright, I have a little more time to go into detail now.

The size is dependent on a lot of factors including your size, whether you plan to run it on gun or via remote, and your access to air fills. Carbon fiber tanks are usually 4500 PSI and will carry more air with less weight, they are a little more expensive though.

CI stands for cubic inches. It is the area of the tank. The larger the CI the more area and the more air it can hold.

Nitro, compressed air and HPA are the same thing. You will want a high output tank for pretty much every gun out there. I'd also suggest a good brand such as Crossfire, Ninja, or Guerilla Air.

Now lets get to size, personally I wouldn't go over a 70/45(a shorter rounder tank) unless I was running exclusively remote. So I'd either go with a 70 or 68/45.

Ya, Guerilla Air makes awesome regs. And for someone that 6'6" 240 lbs that'd probably be a good length for you to carry it on gun when you wanted too.

I used a Ninja 45/45 and it felt like it was as heavy as my Crossfire 70/45. So I'm not really sure what I think of their tanks, but their regs are pretty good.
