Default Crossfire Grip Tank?

Which would be a better fiber HPA tank set-up to get, the new Crossfire Grip tank, or just a regular tank and a tank cover? Is the exposed fiber on the Grip tank durable against chipping? Thanks

If you're that worried... think on this: tank covers are made from neoprene. What is that going to stop if it's going to damage the fiber-wrapped and epoxied tank?

Trust me, it'd be fine. Just get what you're comfortable with. If you like the cover, snag one. If you want the Grip tank, get that. It'll do the same thing the same way in the long run.

the reason why speedballers dont use tank covers is because its "agg" and its easier to wipe a hit, i recomend you getting a tank cover

*sigh* Just so you know, I keep covers on my tanks.

The reason for a cover is merely comfort and grip. As I said already, what is neoprene going to stop? A minor scratch? This is epoxy that is holding in 4,500psi in a 68ci tank... that means that the epoxy is capable of holding in 306,000lbs per inch (just spent a half hour doing the math) is NOT capable of taking a couple scratches? A nick?

If it's going to catastrophically fail, it's going to fail no matter what kind of tank cover you have on it.
