The manual for my promaster says to use a lp tank but people are telling me its ok to use a hp tank on it
are they wright is it ok to use a hp tank on it. Either way how good are crossfire stubby tanks.



PS:
This is not the original "fire fly" this guy sold me his promaster and told me how to log on to this sight.
So if you pm me i probibly wont know who you are.

It's fine to use an HP tank on your Promaster. I use one on mine. Your regulator will do what it's supposed to do and regulate the pressure down to about 300 psi. And all Crossfire tanks are great.

I second that, HP will be fine.

He's right. The regulator will lower the pressure and Crossfire is an amazing company.

Are you saying that the tank has a aftermarket reg or that the marker does?

Off topic-ish: Is it true that an HP tank will reduce the life on a reg?

It really depends on the reg, and what it's max input pressure was designed for. Some may not even work right with too high an input pressure.

So, for some regs, yes, but most designed for PB, no.
