Default Bigger N2 tank...will it still fit in pack?

Ok, so im planning on buying a Spyder Java 4+1 Pack. It states on the AV.com discription that it holds and N2 tank 48ci and smaller. Im planning on getting a 72ci t tank that is egged shape. (As the 47ci tank that I WAS gonna buy is cylinder shape) So will it still fit. And anybody know where I can find a remote that is less than $30? I want the cheapest, yet OK, remote I can find...

The 72ci won't fit in your pack (or at least I highly doubt it). As far as remote lines go, I don't remember there being any real price difference between any of the brands/remotes. I believe stainless steel ones were slightly cheaper, but I wouldnt get one of those (flexibility is a good thing). Any difference in price you find is going to be negligible. You're probably going to end up paying around $30 unless you buy used.

Drop forward. It lowers the ASA & Moves it forward.

Ohhh...okok, now I get it. Thx. Now, let me ask you. Which of the following would be a smarter decision? Getting a 68ci tank,drop foward, and a tank cover OR getting a 47ci tank,remote,and use da pack...? Remember, this is for an e-MR1.

a drop balances out the gun so you don't have all the weight on the back of the gun, easier to aim and much easier to carry especially in games where fast movement is crucial.

Personally, a 68/45 over a smaller size because of shots per fill. If you have a pro shop or field near you, go in & ask if you can use one for a game or two to see if you like the feel.
