is this a good package deal?

I do need a new loader and HPA tank if I want to buy my mini, so this'll all go to good use.

does this look like a reliable site?

can I use that HPA tank on my 98 as well?

DP is reliable. HPA is universal.

I recomend getting a Low pressure output tank for the mini, but yes you can use that tank on your 98, and that is an ok deal but still your mini will thank you with an LP tank

If he gets a LP tank though, he can't use it on his 98 B)

HP or LP tanks will work the exact same on the Mini, we got past the 'HP output messes up regs' after the original Angel. About 11 years ago, FYI.

LP tanks help a little bit still even though theyre not needed.

How so? On a gun designed to work with HP or LP, the regulator doesn't know the difference. It's going to regulate the pressure the same. HP can offer a faster recharge rate as well.

Mines been more consistent. I have a crossy and DXS and the DXS is LP. Both are good regs.

well when you say it recharges faster what you are saying is that the reg puts out more PSI initially, LP tanks are usually set at around 450PSI and when the Mini, that runs at 200PSI shoots there is still an immediate 250PSI there to recharge it, and don't tell me you will get shootdown, because that deals more with the inline reg not recharging fast enough, not the reg on tank, for the LP 450 PSI to get shootdown you would have to be shooting 15+ BPS so in every day use I think you will manage

Yes, but some players (not me) do enjoy continous 15+ BPS. The only point I was making, is that there is not any amazing advantage to buying LP. Some people assume it's "better", which I consider a myth. It boils down, like many things in paintball, to personal preference.

Meh, I havnt noticed much shootdown either but I dont lane for 30seconds either. I get to the 30 and gun enough to catch the tail end of the break. I can settle for personal preference though.
