If you want a small tank, go with a 48/45 or a 45/45 both are extremely small. I've always used crossfire without a problem.

Yes you can still use the tank but it'll only fill to 3000, not 4500.

45/45 is plenty small unless your a tiny person

CP, Crossfire, Air America, and Guerilla Air are all good brand names. I'd actually sugest the 68/45 to you as they're not that heavy, and will be good if you find a shop that fills to 4500. A 45/45 IS the smallest tank out there for 4500 fills, but it doesn't have enough air capacity for most players. With the 68/45, you'd get a few hundred shots less than you are now, but with a couple pounds less weight. Another alternative is a 68/3k, which are cheaper than 68/45's, but will not suit you as well in the long run.

Only carbon fiber tanks I'd stay away from are the 114's and 88's :P

Those are big. Everything else is not heavy enough to not want to use. Especially compared to a 72/30 steelie.

i thought they all shot the same amount of shots depending on the 3000 or 4500? ur telling me that the 45/48/68/72 also make a diff i thought that was just how big it is? let me know if im wrong about this. if so i will probably want a 68

The first number is the physical size of the tank. The second number is the PSI of the tank.

If you are comparing two tanks of equal size (68/3000 and 68/4500) then the tank with the higher PSI will yield more shots.

So for example a 68/3000 and a 48/4500 would yield about the same number of shots.

So if you want a small tank then you can go for a 45/45, a 48/45 or even a 72/45 peanut tank, that will be a little shorter than a 68ci tank but have more shots/fill.

And if you want really small you can get a 13ci tank ;)
