ive been looking at some nitrogen tanks that i might get for my birthday.. first off the DXS 48 4500 looks like a good tank for $200.. is that a good tank? and since it has an odd shape do they make tank covers for those?? also i was looking at PMI tanks such as the 48 4500 HP or the 68 4500.. anyway which one of these is the better deal?? or are there other tanks for cheaper and better??

thanks,
Brian

if you are smaller, get the 45/45
if you are bigger, get the 68/45...

Bigger and smaller will relate in your arm size..

Id get the 68/45

and on the DXS 48 4500.. since its shaped weird do they make tank covers for it? like will the standard 48 tank cover from dye fit over it?

If u have short arms get a 110ci 4500 pmi tank for 225:dodgy:

But id go for the PMI 68ci 45 tank. On actionvillage its only 190(or 189.50)

Only down side would be how heavy it is....
If your looking at getting a tank in the $200 ballpark get a carbonfiber wrapped tank. Tanks are like reg's, everybody has there favorites but honestly fixed reg tanks are all mostly the same. Find the best price for what you want (size wise) and go with that.

And with that useless bit of information I hit the 300 post mark....:D

So you know, PMI/Pure Energy has a common problem of leaking regulators, though usually minute and not very significant, they still leak. However, when working, the PMI/Pure Energy regulators are very quick, and have Stainless Steel bonnets (whether or not they work..) and have just as fast a recharge rate as the Crossfire regulators, which are top notch, and the fastest out there.

As far as 48.45 DXS tanks go, keep in mind that these tanks are SHORTER than standard 45.45 tanks, which are extraordinarily tiny in my opinion. They are the stubby version of the 45.45. I am not aware if they have made a tank cover for it yet, but I presume DXS will have one out for it.

You shouldn't just pay attention to the size of the tank to how small you want it, you should pay particular attention to the efficiency of your marker. If your marker is extraordinarily inefficient, then you will want to have a larger tank, especially if you don't get to pay visits to the store for fills, or if you don't get all day air. However, if your marker is relatively efficient, and you get all day air, then by all means go for size.

Personally, I find 45.45's are way too small as it is, and the 48.45 is best suited for little kids. I personally prefer a 68.45 over a 45.45, but I have longer arms, and shoot an autococker, so the whole backblock in my face thing isn't too fun, hahahaha.
