That tanks cool, just make sure you get the 68ci one. and not the 45ci one. youll get more shots of the 68.

Good luck

The one on the bottom is a low pressure out put. I might not be right but i think that the normal hpa tank has an output pressure of around 800 and the low pressure tank has an output pressure of around 400.

I dont know the benefit of running lp? you might have to make a new thred or search the forums.

Yeah, Spyders run better on High Pressure Output but my friend/teammate is the middleman on my team and he has a Draxxus tank and loves it. Very Good Tank.

your tank out put pressure should be 100-150 psi higher thann the gun operates at. vs 3 runs from 200-250 psi sow you should be able to tous the low pressure tank. if the low presure out put is 400psi.

the only guns you need a lp tank to run are certain angels and that has to do with the reg

go to EBay or Nation and find yourself a 114/45. Make sure it's got a few years of life left in it though because they stopped making them that large

114cu..thats way too big. unless your using a remote. any 68/45 fiber wrap , its the best

air is the best. co2 is liquid gas that can mess up your gun, it also corrodes the valve and if you had steel braided lines it would corrode them as well.

cost..well. you can pay your feild fee and get free air all day long . or pay every time you fill on co2.

plus the vs3 runs at around 200 psi , it has a regulator not an expantion chamber. even the manual says to run the gun on hpa and not co2. do you people read the manuals??

You cant run co2 in a vs2 because the reg cant handle it. And it wont "corrode" anything more than an OXYGEN containing gas (hpa) would.

I do Nondestructive testing for a living and I,ve played paint ball for over 10 years Co2 is not a corrosive. but it does have a high potential to let liquid into your reg. or gun and freeze the o-rings. Then they brake.

Thats a matter of choice... personaly I like the 45 its a little smaller and lighter that makes it less bulky hanging off the end of the gun - plus I dont shoot wildly, I pick and choose my shots, so I always have air and paint left over. At the field I play at its free self serve air so I just top off when I grab paint ... easy - huh!
