View Full Version : Bigger N2 tank...will it still fit in pack?

04-05-2008, 03:48 PM
Ok, so im planning on buying a Spyder Java 4+1 Pack. It states on the AV.com discription that it holds and N2 tank 48ci and smaller. Im planning on getting a 72ci t tank that is egged shape. (As the 47ci tank that I WAS gonna buy is cylinder shape) So will it still fit. And anybody know where I can find a remote that is less than $30? I want the cheapest, yet OK, remote I can find...

The 72ci won't fit in your pack (or at least I highly doubt it). As far as remote lines go, I don't remember there being any real price difference between any of the brands/remotes. I believe stainless steel ones were slightly cheaper, but I wouldnt get one of those (flexibility is a good thing). Any difference in price you find is going to be negligible. You're probably going to end up paying around $30 unless you buy used.

well i have a 72ci tank, and the same belt and it doesn't fit, i got a drop instead of using the remote line.

Ok, thanks...wait, whats a drop?

Drop forward. It lowers the ASA & Moves it forward.

Ok, I dont get it...whats the difference between having a drop and directly connecting the tank into the gun?

Give me a second, Ill show you a drop.

Mounting on the frame. "normal"

Drop forward

See how it moves the ASA down & forward?

Ohhh...okok, now I get it. Thx. Now, let me ask you. Which of the following would be a smarter decision? Getting a 68ci tank,drop foward, and a tank cover OR getting a 47ci tank,remote,and use da pack...? Remember, this is for an e-MR1.

a drop balances out the gun so you don't have all the weight on the back of the gun, easier to aim and much easier to carry especially in games where fast movement is crucial.

Personally, a 68/45 over a smaller size because of shots per fill. If you have a pro shop or field near you, go in & ask if you can use one for a game or two to see if you like the feel.

my experience with packs are they work great but remote lines make it impossible to shoot with either hand, unless you can pass the gun behind your back somehow, and you wouldn't think about it but with that pack the few extra pounds are heavy on the small of the back, i would go with drop and a bigger tank, and now have to fill up as often, i have a 72ci tank on my ion, and with the drop it is perfectly balanced, i have about a 5 inch forward and 2 inch drop on it.

Ok, thanks alot man.. =)

04-05-2008, 08:09 PM
Oh, can you give me the best drop foward for the MR1?

there is my drop on my ion.

Oh, can you give me the best drop foward for the MR1?

Thats a question only the shooter of the marker can answer.

I run a KAPP Drop Zone 3 on my TL+ & EM1

the best drop will depend on the size of tank, i recommend the biggest you can get just because it will be more evenly weighted out, i got a shocktech, pretty cheap, and works great, If you get an adapter for the screws on the bottom of the mr1 you can find more drops, the spyder is about the only gun that has non inline screws. this just adapts the offset screws of spyders to the universal that is on most drops.
