The 110ci tank that I've USED didn't seem any bigger around than my 92ci., it just seemed about 2 or 3 inches longer.

As for what I normally carry, I have an 92/4500, Carleton tank with Air America regulator. Normally gets over a case of paint through my Ion.

hehehe yeah... broadsword... walls of paint flying away from me... the screams of fear from grown men in their bunkers...
so fun... now if only gallons of spray counted as a kill :P

whoa. Not nearly as expensive as i would have thought either.

hey by anychance does anyone know if this fits in the special ops broadsword 6 vest? I read somewhere that they only support
up to 92ci.... however the only difference from what i can tell looking at the pictures of both the 92ci, and the 110ci, is that
the 110 is a little taller? Any experience with this anyone?


Not real sure on size difference but mine fits very snug in my PCS vest but can throw a ton of paint never tested it with a full fill as the field I'm at right now only fills to 3k but with that much I can still throw at least 6 pods and thats while ramping and missing shots cause the hopper can't keep up.

I carry a 92/4500 crossfire on my A-5 and it works great. The only problem I had was the pressure output, yes I got the High Pressure output, but it wasn't enough. I had to send the tank into Crossfire and have the output bumped up to 900 psi, before that I couldn't get the velocity up for anything. It took them darn near three weeks to get it done and after several phone calls and three different excuses I finally got my tank back, they covered the return shipping since it took so long. Also I had to have the reg rebuilt once when it blew through tw burst discs in as many weeks.

45ci 4500 psi carbon fiber. I run tank on gun with the A5. I generally only shoot about 300 rounds at a big game, 70 rounds in a 20 vs 20. I can probably get about 500 shots out of the tank, but I have never ran out of air before so I can't tell for sure.

Yes. I use a 114ci/4500psi tank. It fits quite well into the tank holder on my Broadsword 6. It's just a little long. But no problems securing it.

I'll second that! Mine's a Centerflag Hyperflow tank. Will get about 3/4 case of paint through my SP-8!

Stronger? I'm not sure I know what you mean...

Anyway I use a 9oz, and if it runs out, I switch out to my 12oz backup I carry in my podpack. That's been more than enough for me (the 9oz was almost good enough but I would occasionally run out, and I got a nice deal on the 12oz).

I have the following:
2 88ci 4500psi Pure Energy tanks; they have worked well.
2 91ci 4500psi Dye Throttle Bottles; very unhappy with them.
And I just picked up 2 Special Ops/Nitro Duck 114ci Bombers.
I carry two air tanks onto the field at all times and I go through more paint than I care to admit. About 1.5 to 2 cases every day we play. I also have a Hammer so that is the real “justification” for all the air. That is my story and I’m sticking to it.
