new to paintball question on an air tank
Like the title says I'm new to paintball, I've been out twice, after the first time out I bought an A-5. I'm operating under the assumption that all markers can run off of air or atleast my A-5 can. I'm trying to do what I can to increase the accuracy of the gun as much as possibly. I figure I can either get a stabilizer for my CO2 or get an air tank. With an air tank, at the field I play at, I can fill up out at the fields instead of with the CO2 where I have to walk back to the store everytime I need to fill up, and with a regulator on an air tank I'll have a better idea of when I need to refill, instead of being halfway through a game and then just run out of CO2. So I'm pretty much set on an Air tank.
Ok so now my questions, I've noticed a large selection of air tanks at my store, and no I'm not going to ask what the 45/3000 means I understand that perfectly. I've noticed pretty much everyone uses Carbon Fiber or Fiberglass tanks, but they had a steel one there at the store, which was a good 100 bucks cheaper. And as far as I'm concerned if the only pratical difference between the two is 5lbs or so then I'd be more than happy to get a steel tank as I have a 4+1 pod belt. Which obviously has me running under the assumption that my remote coil or a different remote coil would work with an air tank, which I haven't seen but I don't see any mechanical reason for their not being remote coils and seeing as they are extremely pratical and more comfortable if there isn't a mechanical problem I'd be shocked to hear they don't work/exist.
So in recap, is there any difference, besides weight, between steel and CF/FG tanks, and how much weight are we talking? And will my remote coil work/ do they have remote coils for air tanks?
Thanks in advance for your help, sorry I'm probably asking a lot of stupid questions.
