Default HPA tanks....

....Ok, so I am looking into HPA tanks, and I was wondering if a 48/3000 would be enough. They have some different sized 5000, but would that be too much?

So, if someone could tell me the right size tank for a Spyder Imagine user who plays about 1-2 times a month

I debated this very question. Get a 4500 or 5000! You may not be able to get a 4500 in alot of places but you can some places and resale is much higher for nearly the same cost. 5000 is very limited and much more expensive! Go with 4500 and as far as size goes stick with a 68 CI tnak unless you have a gas hog or you might drop to a 45 if your playing all speedball and want something very light!

Also depends on how many shots you want, go to otter sc to the basics to get how many shots out of each size hpa you can get, also tells CO2.

You'll get so much more out of a tank if its 4500psi and they really aren't much more expensive than the 3000psi tanks. If you get the 3000psi tank you are just going to be kicking yourself later saying "Why didn't I get a 4500 psi tank?" I'm also with timber on the size, 68ci FTW.

The size of a tank is a matter of personal preference. I prefer to shoot a 45 ci, my wife prefers a 68. its just waht feels comfy to me. You wont know what size tank you want until you try a few different sizes.

Dont have anything to carry my tank in then. My harness doesnt hold a tank.

I figured 3000 would be too little, espically cause i play a lot of back and mid. But I can't find a 4500 tank anywhere...

68/3000 or a 68/4500. Most places give free air all days once you pay the initial fee so it works out great. I personally use a 68/3000 right now. Working on getting a 68/4500 from GangGreen

My brother shoots a 48/3000 on his bushy and sometimes just barely has enough for a game. I got a 68/4500 and like to play back and I never have to worry about air. Sometimes I might think it's a little big, but it acutally balances out with the stock drop and my reloader II pretty well (Pilot ACS 05)

QFT, I'm kicking myself for getting a 48/3k. Go for a 68/45. Trust me on this.

You can go here on PBN to find air tanks. Make sure you check hydro dates and feedback before you send payment.
