I got my ego, and my old 45/45 crossfire tank is a full 2" too long... my ion I had one of those rediculous drop forwards, so I didnt notice.

I played with a 70/45 centerflag last night, and it was a lot better (9.5" including part that screws into gun), but wide enough to give me chicken wing. I need something maybe 1/2" shorter and not as wide, but I liked the weight balance.

I really like ninja's stuff, and I know guerilla air has the shortest regs... I just am not really sure what my options are as far as stubbys go or where to buy them...

I also want to be able to carry as much air as I can. 45 is ok but sometimes I wish I had more.

49/45 Ninja or 50/45

49 will be lighter but 50 is a tad bit shorter.

Ninja because it is made in the US. Ray for their customer service is AMAZING! They look sweet, and are fully adjustable!

I was looking at the ninjas... im just confused by the thing in general. no one ever says its a 'short' tank. but my 45/45 and the ninja 45/45 are completely different.... i wish i knew someone with a ninja tank i could try before ordering. Im really worreid about width but lenght is important as well.

Call and ask for measurements! Ninja's customer service is great. I call them everyday just to say goodmorning and they don't even care.

you can have my dye peanut 70/4500. Just needs to be rehydrod. I'll even pay for that for you. Has an Nitro Duck I Reg on it now. I doubt i'll ever play semi auto ever again, so i doubt it will ever get used again by me. :D Might as well let you use it and get something out of it. Better then sitting at the bottom of my unused gear bag all the time. God i can't even think of the last time i aired up my Blazer with it, or even aired up the Blazer for that matter...need to sell that too i think...i can't justify keeping a 1 in 10 if it never gets used. :(

edcit: i'll try to get measurements from it for you tomorrow. Remind me if you don't mind.

what are the measurements that you need ? if the 70 is too fat, but the 45 is too short, what is the range you are lookng for ?

The dye throttle 70/4500 are nice. Not wide like a crossfire peanut but shorter than a 68/4500.

LOL, just the mental image of you calling to say goodmorning is really funny.

They have their measurements on the site. I love ninja for their customer service... they fixed my crossfire tank at MMG free of cost just so I could keep playing :dodgy:

I just dont really know how dimensions translate into real life... like I can say 'ohhai, its 7.5 inches wide' and not know how thats gonna sit. I just wish it was less complicated to buy tanks... theyre like jeans, every one sits different and theres no real reason for it.

I think I might end up trading my tank for a 50/45 ninja.

The dye throttles dont fit me right... too long if I remember correctly.

Erg, this thread makes me sad. I need a 68/45 BAD. Especially if it has a myth or new crossy reg on it. Ugh.

i have a 50/45 peanut and it is tiny. i put it in a 45/45 dye rhino cover and the bottom still had a little room. i had to shove it in there and it is still kinda lose. i would go with the ninja tank. and on top of that, their regs are adjustable. if you want, i can take a pic of it on my karni and send a pic your way. pm me and lmk

What about the 68/45 dont you like? reason i ask is because i picked up the 49/45 and after i tried it out i was thinking maybe i should have went with the 68, but i dont regret it though still love the 49.
