hpa DOES let you shoot faster. C02 needs time to convert from a liquid to a gas every shot, while with hpa, its always a gas and doesnt need to take that time. if you shoot faster than c02s recharge rate, you will get liquid c02 in your marker and freeze internals.

and i answered your other question in your other thread

Well ... i thought he was saying HP tank or LP tank ... get a high pressure tank no matter what ... your stock spyder will never be able to get as low as an angel ... so .... it wouldn't recock ... and it wouldn't work ....

yep 68/45 tank FTW ... but for now .. if your on a budget go for the 72/3k tank

my post was more about proving pman wrong than helping the threadstarter.
