Those non-wrapped tanks are steel. The 72/3k you linked is way heavier than most CF tanks. The CF tanks are lighter and highly reccommended. I'd pick the 68/45 from your links because it has a 5yr hydro schedule. Means you can use it 2yrs longer before having to take it in for a hydro than the 72/3k and 68/3k.

I just picked up a similar tank to that, might actually be the exact tank. It was a ninja paintball 68 4500 on sale for $99 shipped from paintballgateway.com. I had a 72 3000 pure energy tank that made my marker way too heavy but lasted most games. Id spend the xtra 30-40 dollars for that carbon fiber tank, you'll love it.
