I was just wondering if anyone could tell me which Nitro tank i should get? I have a MR2 and i can get a really good deal on both tanks and i was looking to upgrade from C02 because it costed to much to fill. I heard that the 72ci tank is MASSIVE and really heavy so i was looking for tactical vest aswell, so if i do get the 72ci tank i could put it on my back. The deal i found was on ebay and the cost difference between the two is only like $4 so the price isn't an issue. I could really use some advise to help me make my decision:confused: it will be GREATLY appreciated.



Thanks. Etrain

If you want to stay in the woods longer, "slugging" it out....get the 72.

since it's between those two get the 72, but if you had a little more cash you could get a 68/4500 or an 88/4500 carbon fiber tank which is a lot lighter for around 100-120 on pbn all day.

While we are on the subject....

Where are you guys getting your tanks filled? And what would I need to convert over to a HP set-up on my MR-2.... Just the tank right?

Thanks in advance! :D

You can find 68/4500's for cheaper then $100 there too.

true but it all depends on hydro and what brand of tank. i only use the pure energy tanks. all the ones ive owned have never given me probs yet.

d-rail you normally get your tank filled at your local field or at your local pb store.

how much paintball could you shot with this tank

approx. 1020 shots per fill if its a full tank. with the mr2 stock though my tanks were getting around 200 shots less than the approximate shot count. after i put on the ak ex-chamber it went up to get about 200 more than the approximate shot count. but around 1020 is what it should get.

im not sure what you are talking about on how much it cost but it the 68/4500 weighs about 2.6 pounds. compared to the 72/3000 which weighs around 4.1 pounds, that is great and gets more shots.
