Well title says it all. I am looking at the following tanks.

Pure energy

Crossfire

DXS

which one of those tanks which one do you think will go best on a vs2? (Getting a vs2 in a month or so.)

If you do not think I should get any of them please reccomend another tank.

Before you get one of those, consider this one Guerrilla Air (click me) (http://guerrillaair.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=22&products_id=30) first. I have 2 regs and they are just awesome. If you don't want that one, then:

1. Crossy
2. PE
3. DXS

...in that order.

that guerilla air is too much money. I think I'll just get the crossfire.
Why is the DXS tank the last on your list?

DXS tank regs have bad recharge rates. So U can't shoot at extremely high speeds. I have a crossfire tank and I would suggest crossfire to anyone. But Dxs tanks are lighter than crossfire so it really depends what ur buying for.

The newer Crossfire tanks have reg. problems. I'd stay clear of them till they resolve the issue.

Druid's 100% on top of it! Only thing I'd put up against a Guerilla is a MacDev tank and those are even more!

well, Guerrilla has 45/45's too...or just buy the regulator alone and install it into your tank. That's what I did (TWICE) and couldn't be happier. Period.

Crossy :thumbup:


I've gone through 4 of them in the past month. A friend of mine went through 3. Everyone I know who bought one within the past 2 months has had to send it back. They keep blowing the burst disks, bad batch of reg.'s.

You can't be referring to the most recent line of the Crossy's with the skull on them, because my entire team uses them, and we are amazed with their performance, and have yet to have a problem!

That's only the bottle design, all the reg.'s are the same on all of their HP fixed bottles. Everyone in my area has sent their bottle's back so the reg. can be replaced.

Crossfire's good, Pure Energy's good, Guerilla Air is good, etc...I have a PE 68/3000 (about 4 years now) and it's still great. Also have a System X with ACI Bulldog reg 68/4500 that I bought for 40.00 plus the cost of a rebuild kit for the reg about 3 years ago - been an awesome tank and it only cost me about 60 bucks (this is a CF wrapped tank, btw). Unless you're extremely observant and picky, you won't notice a difference in any of them.

HEARD DXS has a slow recharge, but don't know from experience.

I need to get me one of those Guerilla regs and check them out for myself. They sound pretty great!

If you hook a Bulldog reg up to a freestyle you can watch the recharge rate of the tank. Huge difference between those and guerrilla!

Really? Wow - didn't realize that. I've never had an issue with it. I always have the air I need, and my guage never moves when I shoot...

Maybe I should pay some attention to that!
