Finally deciding to make the switch from CO2 to air

I have a Pure Energy 68ci 4500psi tank. I like the 4500, they are a bit more expensive but I like that they last longer. I have that same pack and the tank fits in there nicely. Shop around on here, you can find a tank for pretty cheap sometimes!! This same one is going for $159 on ActionVillage right now though...

The tank type depends on the person. If you play where you don't spray a massive amount of paint, then maybe you can get away with a 45 ci tank. It seems that a 68 ci is a favorite for a lot of people... unless you are Druid and carry the 114 ci monster! :) It all depends on what your needs are.

Personally I would go with a Crossfire tank. Their regulators seem to be one of the best if not the best. And they are the same price as a Pure Energy tank.

I had a Pure Energy tank to start off with and I sold it right away... just my own experience.

If a 4500 PSI tank is usable for you and the price is within reason, I'd say go for it. If you aren't able to get fills higher than 3000 PSI, no need to buy the 4500 PSI tank.

I recomend a CP (or Crossfire) 48/4500 but if you can't afford that then any 3000 tank is fine

yeah what he said, I personally have a 68/3000 java carbon-fiber and a 48/3000 pure energy as a back up, they both do the job really well. and they both fit into my harness w/remote line etc etc.

no bst'ing please

some say high pressure
some say low pressure

whats the right kind ??

High Pressure.

Don't get a LP tank.

I've had good luck with my Carleton tanks... Air America, Crossfire... and my current tank has a Java reg. Best reg I've ever owned on a tank. Doesn't leak at all. I also currently have an ACI Bulldog. Another good tank. Both 68/4500 CF's.

for your mr2 DO NOT GET LOW PRESSURE, this marker requires high pressure

Pure Energy steel 45ci 3000psi is what i first bought. Its cheap fits nicely in an NXE 4+1. I considered the 68 but it was too big however if you considered this size it would fit in the NXE you have. Crossfire tanks are also good I have an carbon fiber 88ci 4500 and love it.

68/45 Crossfire tank. Screw it into the perfectly good ASA on your gun.

Like was stated above if your local field does not have a compressor that is able to pump higher than 3000psi then you are wasteing your money on a 4500psi tank. I got my carbonfibre pure energy 68/3000 for $75(brand new). Not a bad tank but I had to take the fill nipple off and reseat the o-ringit already. And yes the 68ci tanks fit in that harness.

so is anyone able to confirm a Crossfire 68ci/4500psi WILL fit in the 4+1 Nxe Pod pack?
