I used this tank when I was on a dye team and it got the job done but definitely seemed like it was choking when releasing the air out quickly. At the time it was one of the lightest on the market and first to get rid of that grey color. Overall it was ok but I prefer crossfire....see my crossfire reviews.

very nice tank!! quite small and light. I have used it for about 3 months, and the only problem I have had with it is its fill nipple. It wont fill on the local stores fill station up at the field, but will fill on the one in the proshop. so its pretty picky about that. Other than that I really like it!

I was a huge proponent of the Dye Throttle line of air systems. I advocated a few of my friends to buy them too. They're light, sleek and I thought they were top of the line.

But when 3/3 friends all experience blown/screwed up regs (read: not the burst cap, the actual reg), I think it's time to try a new company.

I had the regulator on my throttle tank break twice. The first time i sent it in dye fixed it under warranty and the second time the tried to charge me even though it was the exact same issue as before. After some disagreement i agreed to pay half and as soon as i got it back i sold it bought a crossfire and haven't looked back. I would not recommend these from my personal experience.

Pros: tank is lightweight

If we're talking just about the tank itself, then its great! Lightweight, great apperance, and just the right length. If we're talking about the stock reg, ultimate fail! Not one of dye's superior items. The reg is junk! Do yourself a favor and get a different one and save yourself the headache. Those interior burst discs were a really good concept, but always would leak or completely blow out.

Pros: Weight and Quality is Superb
Cons: Expensive and Regulator Is not as Consistent
Great tank from dye, I have one of the newer models made in 2008 made from Inocom. The weight and size is superb but the regulator is not as consistent as other competitors such as Ninja reg's. The price is definitely a factor as well since its pretty expensive when you compare to tanks from Ninja or CP.

Solid tank, ive had mine for about five years now and is as good as the day i got it. I have used pretty much every tank on the market and i always end up back with my throttle. Most people hate the price but i cant really say anything since my was free with a sponsorship a few years back. The reg is a little big and could have been built better, the pin goes bad after a while but other than that its a great tank.

Pros: almost everything
Cons: cheap treads
I have the 45 cylinder tank and it is amazing. There is only one bad flaw with this tank. The tread strips really easily. If you buy one or have one that is not striped take your time screwing the tank in. Other than that the carbon fiber tank is really light and the 45 cylinder tank is small which makes a perfect match for people who like to have a light weight set up.

If you want a good tank this is good for you but make sure you screw the tank in slowly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
