Prefrences

Any one out there prefer the peanut or stub tanks?? Ive heard people like the extra length on the Ninja grey ghost. Im really liking the 50 45 Ninja.

It really depends on what is comfortable for you. I am 6' talk with long arms...an older 68/4500 is fine for me...I have run guns with a 90/4500 and been comfortable as well. I have a 50/4500 and the only time I use it is when I am using my empire sniper...small compact setup to shoot and move....it's really up to you. You also need to take into consideration the efficiency of your marker as well...the 45 and 50's would obviously need to be filled more depending on how you play.

I never understood why tank companies made stubby tanks but I guess they sell so that's were the money is. Unless you are tiny or a younger player a stubby tank is the worst thing you can do for your game. There is no such thing as a tight or compact setup. There is one length that is best for each person. Talk to any pro and look at any of there setups. All have 68s with the asa all the way back or use a reg extender. The end of the tank should fall in the bend of your arm. If it doesn't have fun trying to keep your gun stable while running and shooting, snapping, laning, etc.

With plenty of gun companys making macrolineless guns, they make the asa non adjustable. So longer tanks are needed for most people. Ninja 77 solves this. If not a long 70 ci, or older 68 is ideal.

For me I always went with a older 68 crossfire tanks,from 2004. And i'm 6'4

I agree with the issue of running and gunning. I have an old style 68/45 and love it. It offers the right amount of stability. I have held others guns with 45/45 and just did the motion of running and gunning and I could not get any stability. The gun is too close to my body..
