You might also want to get a tank cover and nipple cover. If your tank gets seriously scratched you have a $150 paper wieght or wost case a bomb waiting to explode.

I used a Ninja 45/45 and it felt like it was as heavy as my Crossfire 70/45. So I'm not really sure what I think of their tanks, but their regs are pretty good.


Serious :laugh:

I found my 68/45 to be the lightest 68 at my field.

Well the thing about carbon fiber tanks, if it is damaged too much, the fibers will split, and all the air will be released without explosion. Basically you'll get the poo scared out of you, but you'll be fine.

Or if you get a Ninja tank, they use 2 layers of epoxy, so when the first layer gets scratched, the tank is still safe to use.

PE has 2 comparable tanks, both 70/45. One is $154.95, the other is $149.99 on sale, regular price is $170.95.

Though, bear in mind this is just from AV. The prices aren't always the same everywhere.

I dropped mine on a rock, cracked the first layer. The reg on it was all giving me problems. They gave me a brand new one.
