I'd be leary of their regulators for a little while. If they were using another brand's like Centerflag or Crossfire, it'd be all good, but its their own design.

CarbonFiber is just that carbon fibers wrapped bottle.

Glass fiber is a glass composite wrapped bottle.

I personally cant tell the difference from the tanks at the store I work at. Glass fiber are generally cheaper.

Fiberglass is regular glass that was heated and shreadded to threads then epoxied to the tank..
Carbon Fiber is actually a natural fiber...
Carbon Fiber is stronger , lighter, and more expensive....

apparently, carbon tanks are a little lighter, and have a 5 year hydro test, where as the glass tanks are a little heavier, and have to be hydro'd every 3

I would probably buy a carbon fiber 68/4500 and a 47/3000 when they come out. They look good to me. If I get one I tell you if they are good or not.
