I'm looking for a HPA tank to go with my new Epiphany. I also would like to use it on my Spyder Pilot.

I'm trying not to spend any more than around 130. I think this looks like a pretty good deal, but I am not sure if it is high output or low. I asked the seller and all he said was this "It should be, ive been using it on my timmys with no problems."

Is there a way to tell?

Or what do you guys think of this? I know Nitro Duck is a good brand. Too small? I know its not carbon fiber but its a good price.

The second one is smaller and its not carbon fiber so its heavier. The price is pretty much the same you are going to find anywhere else.

You say you'll spend $130, for $30-40 more you can get a brand new carbon fiber tank from Action Village. PE has a bunch of carbon fiber tanks, bigger than that steel tank for $170-180. I'd save my money and get one of those.

If your interested in a 3000psi tank you can find 68/3000 carbon-fiber tanks for $120-130. PMI pure energy from http://www.firstcallpaintball.com/pages-productinfo/category-709_997_1102/product-806/paintball-tanks-nitro-pmi-pure-energy-pure-energy-68ci-3000-psi.html?zenid=adeb257b3fb61d82d78fe8322e8bd096. Unless you have somebody (local field, pro shop) that can fill to 4500psi it doesnt do ya much good to get a 4500 tank.
