My first dye throttle I purchased was the bottle only style with the reg being on the Luxe. I thought the design was very funky and made it easy to damage the threads on the bottle by constantly twisting it off.

Cons: Fill nipple & Dye C.S.
I got the newer model tank in 68/45 and it is lighter and smaller than my old Nitro Duck. The reg is small and nice looking. The good pretty much ends there. The recharge on the reg can be inconsistent. My fill nipple has jammed twice. Shop cant fix it as the reg has a non-standard thread and off the shelf fill nipples dont fit ex. CP fill nipples. Ive emailed Dye but have got no response on replacment parts. I would pass on this tank and look for others.

Pros: Large (91ci)
Cons: Too big for covers
Background:

I purchased a Dye Throttle Air off PbN about a year and a half ago in anticipation of Decay 6. The tank was out of Hydro, and the closest tester that could do it was my local Sport Chalet. Problems with testing aside, the reg was bad (possibly the reason it was out of hydro, as well, but oh well).

I was forced to upgrade and threw on a Ninja Pro on there. As such, I can't review the regulator, but I can review the tank.

Testing

The tank is a 91ci, 4500 psi tank. As such, it's fiber wrapped with a smooth black gel coat for aesthetics. Testing has occurred at Decay of Nations 6, DoN 7 and Tet 2013, as well as various days at my local field.

Durability

Despite being exposed, with nothing protecting the tank, the exterior is incredibly durable. There are only minor scratches in the gel, and overall, the tank has held up to incredibly harsh conditions, both heat and cold.

Capacity

The tank has been mounted on numerous markers. Due to this tank being almost 40% larger than a 68ci tank, results were somewhat expected.

Approximate results:

BT TM-15 - 1 3/4 Cases
Dye DM6 - 3/4 Case
DP G3iQ - 1 2/4 Cases

Note: DM6 is currently leaking, and o-rings need to be replaced.


Conclusion

Overall, this is a great tank to have if you can pick one up for cheap. It's fairly durable, and the large size gives back players or scenario junkies extra playing time, especially in the heat of battle.

Alright, the Dye throttle tank speaks for itself, it bears the Dye name and this means quality work. I've had my throttle since 2005 and it passed hydro and will pass again 2015. This tank may seem pricey to the new player but you're paying for a quality tank that holds its worth in reliability and performance. When Dye means consistent they mean consistent. I only have 2-3 fps flux when using this on my DM6 and PMR '07. I am more than happy with this tank and she still looks brand new!

Dye Precision Throttle Air System I've had this tank for 6 months and it has been great. It is light weight, and feels great on my shoulder. I have yet to have a burst disk or anything go wrong with the tank.

Dye Precision Throttle Air System Very good tank. Since I got a VERY good deal it had good value but i would probably not pay $200 for the tank let alone any tank. Overall very good tank though
