You don't want a low pressure tank. You really only need an LP tank for some Angels. As for which tank is the best... My personal preference is Crossfire, but I've also heard good things about CP and Pure Energy tanks. I would go for a 45/4500 or a 68/4500, go to your local store and check them out and see what size you prefer. Definitely go with a 4500psi tank though.

What is wrong with a low pressure HPA tank?

There is nothing wrong with an LP tank if the only markers you will ever use have an OP of under 450psi... But, the markers out on the market are mainly above that.

Older Angels do not require an LP tank with the proper modification: flipping a part of the spring pack in the vertical regulator. None too hard to do, so that older way of thinking that they can only work with LP tanks is void.

I personally would go to the BST section and get a used tank with at least 3 years on Hydro. You can get them for about $100-125, a savings of $99-79 on your part. Tank size will depend on whether your field/local shop fills to the PSI of your tank, how many shots you use per game, and what position you play. I personally run an AA Apocalypse 2k 68/45, and it's perfect for everything for me on the field. Of course, I'm a fairly big guy, so I don't worry too much about how big of a tank I hold and how much of it's sticking out from the bunker. If you're a small guy playing front, get a 45/45 unless you have good form. Anything else, 68/45.
