What size do you usually use? I'm stuck with carrying two 9 ounces right now.

Well if you are running CO2 I'd upgrade to a 20oz and keep a 9oz in my gear bag just in case. But, if you are going to buy a new tank I'd probably suggest HPA, the benifits completely out-weight CO2.

I use a 68ci 4500psi tank. I also have my old 20oz and 12oz tanks as back ups. I would agree with paintball valley and if you can afford to get an HPA tank. If you're looking for something cheap a 20oz is good. I personally wish I would have saved up a little sooner to get the HPA tank. It all comes down to preference though.

45/45 for my Borg and Mag, and my PGP runs 12grams. But when I play "Dagger" I plan to use the PGP mainly. The Borg and Mag will be for other roles since they're bigger, heavier, and bulkier than the PGP, and have unnecessary firepower at such close range.

I use a 68/45 BUT I've learned somethings from some speedball pros.Hold your marker and bend your elbow in a 90* angle.Look to where the airtank comes.If it lines up perfectly with the bottom of your elbow your good to go.If it goes past it is too big.It's it doesn't quite reach you could go bigger.

It's pretty dependant upon how efficent your marker is and how much you shoot.

A 9oz lasts me all day on my Automag, and about all summer on my Phantom. Then I have a 12 oz that I keep for backup purposes.

go 12 grams!
