It's a steel tank...not a boat anchor...unless of course, yer built like douggie...er um...bomberpilot ...bwahahahahaha.....just kidding doug...

It's not that bad......it's alot like a 20 oz...and it has a longer life than a CF bottle...CF's are only good for a total of 15 years, where as steel are good for 25 unless it's damaged and won't pass hydro....get 2 of them...

That tank is actually lighter (according to PMI's website) than the 48/3k. Lemme tell you something...the 48/3k IS an anchor, much like Druid's behemoth, just smaller.

If you're a starting player, I'd say go for it. If not, go for a used 68/45 off PBN and make sure you check hydro dates, DOT codes, and everything else on the tank, as well as the seller's feedback. MAKE SURE YOU GET PICTURES OF THOSE CODES! Don't take the seller's word on it, unless he is an established member here....then be a bit nicer.
SOC (+41, -0) | PBN (+12, -0) | New PBN (+20, -0)
