The size of the tank determines how many shots per fill.

What is your current setup?

Get a Crossfire 68ci. 4500psi. Crossfire is the best and a 68 4500 tank is a good size, wether you wanna go remote or just screw it in and will give you alot more time on the field.

A 4500 is only the way to go if your field or where ever you get air can fill to that pressure, check around and see if you can get it filled before you buy.
A 3000psi tank might fit your needs a little better and their a little cheaper than 4500. 68ci is about as small as I would go, especially if its a 68/3000.

Not to be against MVS1 or anything. Hes right. But IMO, I'd go with a 68/3000 if you play speedball at your field. You dont need to spend alot of money for a decent amount of shots and the weight isnt too bad. If you got the money, a 4500 is good too. If you play long, scenerio games or something, a 4500 would be better since you get more shots.

The field over here is long scenerio games but they just added 4 speedball fields. This weekend was my first time playing them and I love it. Its so much more in your face but you sure get lit up. Thanks for the info!

Keep in mind that those expensive 4500 psi tanks are actually lighter because they're made from carbon fiber as opposed to aluminium.

Exacly when I fill up mine i can't tell a difference in weight. I have to look at the regulator to know if its full or not.
