I have $230 to spend on an air tank. Which one do you think I should get? I have one of those 47/4500 PE tanks, the ones that cost like $60. I definently need somthing lighter than that. I also need something that is capable of high-pressure output because I currently use an A-5. BTW, I would like to buy ASAP, so a fast response would be appreciated.

If you play at a sanctioned field that fills tanks I'd go with a dye 45/45... super light. If you go in the woods where you can't get fills then a 68/45 will get you a little more playing time. The main thing is that it's a carbon fiber tank... not a big heavy steel one.

Are the dye tanks carbon fiber? What about this one?

I'm pretty sure they are... but I'm no real expert. I think that would have to be for the price!

Ok, I think I'm going to get this one, but I need to make sure that it is a good deal lighter than the one I have now (PE low-end tank, 47/3000).

Is it possible that it could be fiber-wrapped but have another coating of somthing black over it?

Yes it is. I know there is a company Nitro Duck that puts a coating on the outside of the fiber wrap to keep it safe. Before dropping the money you should call the company or email them to ask questions. Do you have a paintball store near you? They could also answer your questions.

Before you jump to getting a certain tank I would seriously look at a lot of reviews over on PB Review. Also, I have heard more negative things about dye tank regulators than good as Wimpy was suggesting. My personal recommendation would be to go with a Crossfire tank, they have some of the best regulators and there a lot cheaper than anything else that has been suggested so far. I have a huge 92/4500 that I got for $210 and I love how light it is.
