I have a 5+4+2 pod pack that i really like using and i recently got a stock for my a5 and my tank is almost in the way. I am looking at drop forwards but i played with a friends gun for a few games and he has his tank on a remote line. I was wondering if there are any packs or whatever that will allow me to mount my tank on my back and still be able to use my 5+4+2 pack or should i just go out and buy that drop forward?

Here's something you may find interesting. http://www.actionvillage.com/040-4009. It goes on your leg instead of your back. Other wise I would just buy a new pod pack or vest that has a tank pouch.

the only problem with that is a use a 68/45 hpa tank because I will not put Co2 through my a5 since i installed the Egrip on it.

I was sitting here thinking what i could do and it actually just came to me.
what about a scuba harness? does anyone know if one of those will fit a paintball tank?

Just so you know, CO2 will not endanger your E-grip in any way. The gas in an A-5 never comes in contact with anything in the grip. The solenoid in the E-grip is used to control the action of the sear against the rear bolt. The CO2 or HPA is never involved in this process. And in case you don't believe me, I've played with my E-gripped A-5 in very cold weather and shot liquid CO2 all the way through the marker. Sure my paintballs were history, but years later my E-grip still functions like it did new.

HPA can still improve your consistency mind you... I just thought I'd let you know that CO2 is still an option with an E-grip.

Anyways, back on topic, what kind of scuba harness are you thinking of exactly? The kind I'm picturing would hold a much bigger tank than a 68/45. It would be more suited to holding a CO2 bulk tank... :blink:

i know all that. i just wont put it in because i have the X7 egrip and i fire rapidly and i dont like how dirty and inconsistent Co2 is compared to HPA. plus HPA is alot easier to find around here and is over all cheaper then Co2 ( which apparently is different then most other places i guess)
And i was thinking of the smallest most basic harness. basically a bottle bag with webbing straps or something. I saw them being used for low depth diving when we were in Cozumel a while back.

Good point..yeah i dont use co2 at all any more either.

I would go with the drop foward personally or get a vest that has a tank pack, then put your pod pack over that

my only worry and why i didn't go out and just buy a drop forward immediately is cause i was worried it might make the tank a little in the way when shooting from the prone position.

Try using a hydration pouch... insert the tank into the pouch & run your remote line. I've never tried it myself personally, but have heard of guys using them w/ some success.

This guy's had a lot of success with it. He's on my team and it works out for him.
