Question Air System components

I was wondering if a few of you would share the kind of air systems you have set up on your pilot ACS '05. I am planning on upgrading the air system on mine but the problem I have is that I don't know, besides the tank I want, the type of drop forwards, adapters, etc. that I want to put on to my pilot. So if a few of you would like to share the kind of air system set up you have on your pilots, that would be great.

Mine has a CP On/Off with a rail...no drop...

Since the basic design of all Spyders is the same you really could look at anyones set up for some ideas.

As for ASA's IMO the CP on/off w/bleed is the way to go. I have 2 of them and they work great. As for a drop, totally personal preference. I had the CP razor drop on my Rodeo then took it off because the gun felt off for me. I shoulder the tank and with the drop it was too far in to do so. Right now all of my guns have direct mount rails on them, or a mini drop, but nothing big.

My best advise is to go to the field and ask to hold friends guns that have drops and try them out. You may find, like me, that you don't need or like a drop on your gun.

Now for Air, you say you already have a tank in mind. What are you thinking?

HacKeR is right....try several different drops if you can....
My sons both use huge CIP Bullet Drops....I like the rail alone....
try to find some markers and the size tank you were thinking of at the same time for a real test of balance and feel.....

Ditto on the drops. But for the tank u should definently hold the tank with your kit b4 you buy one. I bought my 72ci/3000 based on that it could contain my full hopper (195) and four 140 pods (only use 2 or 3 since im a front). But that could be too heavy or not enough for you.

Thanks for the feedback.

As for the tank i don't have any single particular tank in mind. I was looking towards getting a crossfire 68/3000 or a PMI 68/3000 tank. Which ever will fit in my budget.

yeah, i purchased mine through a bulk buy at actionvillage. all three of us save 30 dollars each, we got the PMI 72/3000. if you wanna do that al you gotta do is find the tank you want, find it in bulk, ask some friends or post on your local fields forums.

The Crossy is a great tank. I would however suggest getting the 4500 psi tank. Your local field may not be able to fill to that now, but if in a few months they get a new compressor and they can, you will wish you had the capability to get a larger fill.

It wont hurt anything to fill a 4500psi to 3000psi, but it will give you options going forward.

Yeah doing further research on what those numbers mean (i.e. 68/3000, 72/4500, etc...) i realized that I can get more shots out of a 4500 PSI tank then I would get out of a 3000 PSI tank so after reading that I started to lean toward getting a 4500. And yes, I am a nub.

Thanks for the feedback guys, I appreciate it.
