Please Help Me Decide

I recently just purchased a new gun GoG Extcy, still have not recieved it (being shipped) and a new hopper (Pinokio).
And i'm looking for a new HPA Tank to go along with it. Price range is 200$
also would it be a good idea to get a cover for it or just a rubber bottom?

Thanks A bunch

Well what size are you looking at? If your smaller under 5"5 a njnja 50/4500. (love mine) or if your a bit taller taller than 5"5 then id say 68/4500 ninja.

I would get a full cover so the tank is protected while in your gearbag and/if you have a botched dive.

height has nothing to do with what size tank you should get....i am 6'3 and I use a 50/45.


get a 50/45 or 45/45 if you want a smaller profile as a front player, or if you shoot less paint

get a 68/45 if you shoot more paint or dont really care about your profile.

get a 72/45 if you want a happy medium between the two.

Good advice Ninja but I would just go with the 68/4500. It is a large enough tank to let you shoot enough paint, as gog doesn't make the most efficient guns the world has seen, and give you a decent enough profile. They are the industry standard size today. As far as the tank itself, I would recommend a new ninja tank with the ninja pro reg. It is adjustable should you ever need to change the pressure and is all around a versatile tank. I love my Guerrilla Air cover and recommend a full tank cover for now as well.

Thank you all for your input, i'm a rather tall guy btw 6'5", so i'm not really worried about maintaining a small profile.

i'll probably go with a ninja 68/45 it seems like everyone has positive things to say about it

Go with Guerilla. You'll absolutely love it. They are the smallest, lightest, and best tanks on the market. They run at around $169 for a 68/4500 and the Guerilla tank cover is $20. Great feel and all around awesome tank.

I'm not sure about the GOG marker, but just as a warning, Guerilla Air tank regs, and the new crossfire tank regs will not fit on some markers. The space between the tank threads and the fill gauge is too short and hits the frame of the marker not allowing it to screw in all the way.

Get a Ninja tank. they have an adjustable regulator, and make a pretty good tank as well.

I rock a Crossfire 72/45, so I can't give input on the tank. I do have a Ultralite reg on my tank. One of the best regs I've ever owned.

I'm 5'9" and I love the Guerrilla 70/4500. My only gripe with it was the myth reg, so I swapped it out for the Ninja reg. To me, it's the perfect fit. I used to have a Ninja 68/45, but it just felt a tad short for me. Just my 2 cents.

Lol.


Here. Let yourself choose the tank brand.


Everything made from 2007 to now will constitute for a fantastic tank.


Ninja: Not the most consistent regulators, but great warranty and adjustable, parts are very cheap. Has a larger fill nipple and burst disc than most. They now (finally) have these PRO adjustable regulators which are even taller and uglier, but allow you to rotate the part of the regulator with the discs, nipple, gauge and so forth on it. So it makes it a solid contender.

Guerrilla: Not the most durable/reliable regulators, but are super low profile and have very adjustable positioning on them for being so small. Also, pretty amazing customer service. Everything is compact about them.

Crossfire: Seemingly heavier, but solid *** tanks. Solid regulators, especially the stainless steel ones they used to have. Very solid build and all around good tanks. The new SS regulators seem to be iffy on reliability, but professional teams use them, so no complaints. Fantastic customer service.

CP: Some of the best regulators, if not THE best tank regulators on the market. Expensive as ****. Heavier than the rest. Tank regulator is the longest/largest.
