Has anyone had any experience with any kind of stubby tank?

Really considering buying a DXS stubber soon.

I have never owned one or actually used one but pretty much everyone I talk to about them say they make their gun feel weird and off balanced and would prefure a normal sized tank. Im sure it depends on what you plan on using it for though.

well I've played with a Crosby stubby and it was okay, I liked it for running and gunning but sort of wierd for snapping and aiming.

ok so now what; 68/45 or 45/45

I would reccomend a 68/45 over the 45/45, I would even go with a 68/30 over the 45/45

68/45 is the right size for everyone. Don't know why people even buy the 45/45, it's too ****in' tiny.

Well if you could why dont you place both tanks on your gun to see how they feel and go from there......sometimes the smaller ones are all people need

I love my stubby, smaller than most tanks and with my drop doesn't even seem like you have a tank on your gun. I can get about 1400 shots out of my 70/4500 which is great when you go somewhere without HPA fills.

thats a massive tank...any chance you have a pic of the tank on the gun? I would like to see what kind of dropforward

Here it is, Feels more like a 12oz CO2 tank. Light and Manuverable great for woodsball which it what I play mostly.

Not as large as i was thinking.....but that is where the center of gravity should be for a stubby

The stubby tanks are just a hair longer then a 45/45. The 45/45 I got felt weird when I first got it as it is way shorter then the 68's I have. But like anything I am sure you could get use to it.

Here is my 45 next to my 68's for comparison.


The 72/45 stubby tank I used before was really fat and felt weird, it kind of got in the way of my arm going forward to grip the gun.

If you play front or pump a 45/45 will probably be fine.

For everything else I would get a 68/45.
