low or high pressure?

i have an older tank for my mini and its huge. its longer than my gun, so i figure if im going to have a small marker i should get a smaller tank. my buddy is going to sell his low pressure stubby tank and he would sell me it cheap, so i was wondering what would be the better tank for a mini? high or low? and why? is one more consistent with air?

either one will work. but low pressure is recommended because its easier to unscrew from the ASA.

Lower pressure will also provide less wear and tear on the input pressure reg do to it regulating only 450~ psi compared to 850~.

So far according to simon, there has been absolutely no difference in wear between HP and LP.

However with LP, you will be able to use your tank until it hits ~450 before it starts to drop off, rather than 850. Not to mention it will be much easier to remove from your ASA

nope, LP or HP it gets regulated down to 200psi or below by your regulator that is your asa.
