my pump set-up is way to heavy and bulky what should i pick up (tank,hopper)

im stuck with my 68/45 and a rotor on my KP so its heavy and a big target any suggestions on a nice,cheap,reliable set-up and maybe a few mods i should do to my kaos pump?

extreme rage 100rnd hopper - I have no feeding problems with it, granted I don't have auto-trigger. If you run the hopper nearly dry (1-2 balls left in the neck) it will fit a 140rnd pod fill.

I've got a small drop on my setup, which helps balance out my 68/45 weight.

Your tank and hopper are no heavier or bigger than they would be on an everyday semi setup. You kinda answered your own question, smaller tank & hopper.

I'd recommend trading your 68ci4500psi tank for a 45/45 - that will save a noticable amount of weight. I've never been a fan of those 13ci tanks because they're too small -- plus with 45/45 I can play all day on one fill.

And perhaps a bigger difference would be going to a Winchester hopper. They only hold about 60 rds but they feed very nice and are light as a feather -- it feels like you have no hopper on the gun even if it's full.

If that's not enough paint for you then you could try a Sportshot, but they don't feed as well. I've never had a jam or missed shot with my Winny and I can shoot considerably fast for not having an autotrigger.

APP makes a 50 rnd hopper as well, and a 45/45 will help with the weight.

I play with a 68/45 and prophecy. no problems with the weight. also its not a big target. if you look at your profile in the mirror, just make sure your hopper is no bigger than your head. For instance, In the picture above (the stick feed set up), I would change the angle of the stick feed because it is taller than his head. Therefore it is a larger target when he peeks out to shoot.

Which I have since done. I have a slightly shorter stick at a better angle now.

That one held 17 balls, my new one holds 13. So light and tight, snap shooting is a breeze!

Even still, it was very difficult to hit that.

I have a hard time playing with anything but a 45/45 on a sniper. 13/3k for Nelson guns, usually.

some people dont see this but it dosent matter how big your hoppers is for instance your using a rotor but want a smaller hopper cause you want a smaller profile but instead of hitting the hopper the paint is going to hit where the big hopper was its just going to hit your mask so the size of the hopper dosent matter it all comes down to weight.

Truth. Unless it is bigger than your head lol.

I usually run a 48/30 with my pump, but I'd like to try a 45/45. I have a 68/45 and it's a little long for a pump, so I may have to try out a 45/45 to see if that is the way to go. And it looks like it is from the replies here.
