Are you talking about what is the difference between a 47ci tank, a 45, 68, 71? If thats what you are asking its just the size of the tank and how much room it has of air. If you are talking about the difference between 3000 psi, 4500 psi or 5000 psi, thats the maximum fill pressure. If you have 3 tanks, a 68ci/3000psi tank, a 68ci/4500psi tank and a 68ci/5000psi tank because the 5000psi tank can hold more air per square inch you'll get more shots than the other too. I hope that helps, or I may have just confused you more.

Go with a crossfire, seems to have the best recharge of most of the n2 tanks out there today. Mine's never let me down.

Guerrilla Air is supposed to have a better recharge than the Crossfire regs. I have an Assault by Guerrilla and I love it. Mine's on a 68/4500 bottle, but the reg will be the same on a 47/3000.

Centerflag tanks or Crossfire are top of the line. It really dont matter becuase the differences in recharge are minor.

Crossfire is by Far a lot better than any other brand. I would diffenately fork over the extra 15 to 20 Dollars for the Crossfire. They make good quality products.

I have a 48/3000 PMI tank that was mentioned above, and it has leaked from the pin valve numerous times, but PMI sends me a new o-ring to fix it everytime it breaks, Heh, but It is still a pain to take apart the Reg. to fix it everytime.

I diffenately suggest the Crossfire. Worth every penny..

Well, sak world proshop is 10 minutes from my house, so... Basically I've heard one person saying crossfires are worth the extra 15$, but mostly there the same? I wanna stick to ~47ci so I can use my redz tank cover on it. Besides, I don't want too much weight...
