What about LPA?? lol

Compressed air is just a better choice all around other than the cost of the tank.

LPA is just the output of the reg, not the pressure of the tank

We should start posting the actual tanks we have along with the vote we put in the poll.

If its anti siphoned and its running palmers regs and a remote, it could work. But the cheaper and better solution is an air tank.

Ion's BEG to be shot fast. CO2 begs NOT to be shot fast.

Run anti-siphon (a MUST) and a PPS Stabilizer. This should keep liquid out of the marker...stress on SHOULD, not "will."

The faster you shoot, the colder the tank and lines will get and the better the chance you'll condense the CO2 to a liquid and/or cause a pressure spike when it re-expands.

Sure, you can run CO2 on an Ion. It defeats the purpose of having an electro though.

If you want to shoot fast - say, 5bps or faster - get HPA.
If you can live with shooting less paint, get a mechanical semi and keep using CO2 on it.

Electros should only be shot with HPA. The antisphon+Palmers stabilizer is great for mech cockers and classic mags, but realy isn't a safe choice for EPs.

So you want to know why it's called an A5?

If I could assemble a new regulator for a paintball gun, I could build a liver. How hard could it be?

you can run an ion on CO2 just fine with an anti-siphoned CO2 tank if all you can get is CO2. Recomended you can a palmer female stabailzzer for the ion so you can set upa dual reg setup which lowered your chances of a blown noid even more.

A lot of people just blurp "OHNOEZ CO@Z FOR NUBORZ, G3TZ @IR TANKS!!" before even considering weather or not that person has access to HPA or not.

HOWEVER, if you do have access to compressed air I highly recomend you go grab a HPA tank.

Yea, I've run Co2 once or twice with an anti-siphon, but still prefer HPA.
