Get a Ninja 50ci 4500

I personally like to stick with 68/45k. Good for all positions and the little extra length is a benefit in playing anywhere. (I'm a long tank kind of guy)

Make sure you get a carbon fiber 4500 and something that fits you tanks are kinda like shoes you don't want something that's to big and and you don't want something that's to small. Best Advice is to try some peoples tanks at your local field and find out what size you like best, then worry about brand.

Again, I'm going to paraphrase an earlyer post I did...

There is no compressed air tank that is better suited to a certain gun. You have to make the decision as to what fits you and your wallet.

The question you need to be asking, and asking yourself, is what SIZE tank do I need that is it within my budget? Tank size should be determined by 2 attributes:
1. The size of your body, specifically your arms. (Longer arms = longer tank)
2. The amount of paint you need to shoot before you have a chance to refill your air. (more shots = higher capacity tank)

Do the research. Find out your marker's efficiency. Find out how much you shoot in a game. Measure your forearm length, and use that as a rough estimate of how long you want your tank to be. Then go from there.

If you are planning on being involved in paintball for a long time, and want to save money in the long run instead of needing to buy a 2nd tank because you screwed up with your 1st, you will do what I mentioned, and pick the 4500psi carbon tank from a reputable company that best suits your needs.

Look at your comment. Back to mine. Back to yours NOW BACK TO MINE. Sadly, it isn't mine. But if you stopped trolling and started posting legitimate crap it could LOOK like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're scrolling through the comments, finding the ones that your comment could look like. Back at mine, what is it? It's a highly effective counter-troll. Look again, MY COMMENT IS NOW DIAMONDS.
