i think ur asking if u need a 3000 or 4500 psi tank?
but nah the one just gets more shots per fill
i think its like ci * 10 for a 3000
n ci * 15 for a 4500
but if ur using a spyder get the high pressure tank not a low pressure tank

:yeahthat: but the wording is kind of confusing

3000 and 4500 psi is just the max pressure the tank can hold. The higher the pressure capability the more shots you will get. For example a 68ci/4500psi tank will hold more air than a 68ci/3000psi tank. Both are the exact same size, one has just been built to handle a higher storage pressure. The same goes for the ci or cubic inches. The higher the ci the more air the tank will hold. So a 68ci will hold more than a 45ci.

Now there are 3 types of outputs, High, Low and Adjustable. High Pressure output tanks usually put out about 800-850psi. HP tanks are what you use for most markers, including Spyders, with the exception of some Angels. Low Pressure output tanks usually put out about 400-450psi, really you only get these for certain models of Angels. Adjustable are exactly that, adjustable. You can change the output pressure of your tank, this is a nice option but more expensive than a fixed pressure output tank, like the HP and LP tanks.

The 48ci/3000psi tank is a good starter tank, its not very big, but its cheap and allows you to use the more consistent compressed air. Compressed air is a great upgrade, just make sure when you purchase the tank that its an HP tank.

all it says is that it is high flow it doesnt say its high pressure

That's basically the same thing, just different terminology.
