A 72 will be heavier than a 20oz. I dont have exact numbers but they are heavier.

HPA will be more consistant during all seasons. The bigger question is how much do you shoot compared to what you have. If you shoot more than about 700 rounds a day then a 72 will not cover your playing needs. That being said there is nothing saying that you cant use both. If you have the money pick up the HPA tank and use both.


Hope that answers your question

Huh???

I am puzzled on what you are asking here. Try re-typing it with punctuation and real words. Not talking down to you but I have no idea what you want to know. How many shots from an 88ci? Can you use a 4500psi?

OK. here we go.

There are 2 numbers that designate a Nitrogen tank:

-The physical size of the tank. Measured in Cubic Inches. i.e 45, 68, 72, 88, etc.

-The pressure the tank can hold. Measured in pounds per square inch(PSI). This will be one of three numbers 3000, 4500, 5000.

Now the combination of these two numbers will tell you how many shots a tank will hold. Now there are many variables that change the exact numbers but a general rule of thumb that I run by is.

for a 3000PSI tank: Cubic inch of tank X 10 for 72 3000 gets 720 shots
for a 4500PSI tank: Cubic inch of tank X 15 for 68 4500 gets 1020 shots

Most tanks are High pressure tanks(HP) that means that the output pressure of the tank will be around 800 psi. That is around the base pressure a spyder runs on. As long is the tank is a HP tank, which is almost all, it will work.
