and an extra $5 to have them put it back on..

$7.95 to have shipped back to you..

$35.90 you pay them to do it all for you... that sound like a good deal?

Some local places will do it for pretty cheap. I would try and look around before you send it somewhere.

Depends on the situation for me. If I have time, I will take my tank to Crossfire myself. If I do not have time and the field owner has to make a run there, I leave it at the field so he can make the 30 to 40 minute drive.

How long do braided tanks usually last? When the hydro is up on a tank and it passes the test how many more years is it good for again? Also a few of my friends advised me to get a 3000psi tank rather than a 4000 because they said most places only fill up to 3000 anyway. Should i go with that or get a 4500psi? And what brand is best to go with in the first place when purchasing a tank?

I have heard nothing but good things about Ninja air tanks, as for 3000 psi vs 4500

most fields can fill 4500 psi air tanks, but i would check with them before you purchase one

as for what kind of tank i only know of carbon fiber air tanks which are.. correct me if im wrong 3 years? and steel tanks are good for 5 years, and as long as they keep passing they are good for the 3-5 years.. i have not gotten a re hydro test done yet (my tanks are up in june 2010)

i own a 72ci 3000 psi pure energy steel tank and has not failed me yet.

Do a search for "fire services" in your area (Illinois, I assume). A few local businesses should pop up that hydrostatically test tanks (scuba, etc). They'll get it done for you and usually fairly cheap (I think mine was $10-15 total last time I did it).
