View Full Version : Quick question about aluminum N2 tank

08-20-2006, 12:18 PM
Is the weight that much of a differance between a carbon fiber tank and an aluminum one, I am not a small guy ( 6'5, 190) so will I feel it that much when I am actually playing. I have already felt them empty @ my proshop but I was only thinking about weight, but when I actually play I dont think that will be going through my mind.

Also would it be worth it to completly upgrade my 2005 imagine LED (LP, t-board, eyes, et.) or should I just take that money and invest in a wrath, ion, promaster, or wait for the VS2 or any other gun, but I want to stay in the 150-250 range.

id say get a new gun.

IM 6 6 230ish and the PMI aluminum 72/3k wasnt heavy on a pm6

BTW what you felt empty is the same as it would feel full. what you are putting inside of it is as light as air ;)

Air is not weightless......however, the empty/full difference will not be as much as a CO2 tank, because CO2 is liquid...

id say get the promaster, i got a 72ci tank and im only 5 9, and its not too bad, u get used to it

again, frailpeople are weak, so u dont know what 5 9 is.. if ur 5 9 and weak, it could be heavy, but i assume ur stronger cause u dont mind the weight.

gun weight is important too

ya, its important to have a balanced marker with the tank. and ive always been an upgrade junkie, so i say upgrade the imagine

Ehhh.... Im strong....

Heavy paintball guns... well they realy are not that heavy... its all about you...

Like they said if you are weak then metal tanks are no good but if you have some meat (muscle) then you will be ok...
