it'll work, but it'll work better with a high pressure tank.

right. but thats just the regs. the stock reg converts it down to LP operating pressure (below 450psi). SOME angel regs cant handle the 850psi output of normal tanks, which is what the LP tanks were designed for. think of it this way, when your tanks is putting out 850 psi and your reg is putting out 250, your have a 600psi buffer zone to help with faster recharge. on the other hand, with a 450psi tank, you only have a 200psi buffer zone.

Type slower and more clearly and we will be able to help you more concisely. You also do not need two threads on the same issue.

You RSX will work just fine off the LP output tank (puts out approximately 450psi), but it's really pushing it with a Spyder unless it's a really good, high-flowing tank regulator (most on the market are nowadays).

Another thing, asking a member if he knows what the marker is is kinda counter-intuitive as he just replied to your question. If you have a question about the marker, just ask it.
