Exclamation Nitro Tank

Hey, guys i was just wondering does the CI of the tank matter on how many shots you get. For example i have a PMI 68ci 4500psi tank will mine have more shots lets say agasint a 45ci 4500psi tank. Im asking this because in about a month ill be getting an invert mini so the tank i have will be kinda big for it so i was thinking of getting like a crossfire peanut or something. So does cubic inches make a difference and any other suggestions on a HPA tank i should get for my Invert Mini?


thanks

P.S whats like the lighest tank out there?

yes, u will get more shots with the 68 ci. ci=cubic inches so it would be bigger therefore holding more air (u probly knew that but w/e). if u get refills at your field then go for the peanut those things are super tiny!

go here
and go down and ull see a chart of how many shots u get for the size u want

id get this one . it looks pretty light

48/45 are really tiny and feel weird at first compared to a 68/45

my 45 next to my 68's




Draxxus has the lightest tanks.

I would just keep the 68, I run a 68 on any gun I have ever owned and got the 45 just to run on a pump when I don't need as much air.

i think the invert mini is an LP gun. idk if it makes a difference but if it does... get the draxxus low pressure. i would also suggest u just buy it from an online store like zephyrpaintball.com they offer free shipping on orders $99+ and they have really fast shipping and actionvillage.com too.

with guns today, you dont need a low pressure tank, just get a regular 4500 psi tank in any size you think you would want, just know that 45CI is going to be a little smaller then the pictures would make it seem. your marker wont allow more pressure into it then its designed for (via the regulator). they will all shoot the same distance, 300 feet per second is 300 feet per second, no matter what kind of air your using.

hope this helps
