Question What tank should I get?

I have a Valken 68 CUI / 3000 psi tank and I was wondering If I should go for a 4500 psi tank? I want to upgrade because I play woodsball, and 3000 psi doesn't last long.

Even if you can't get a pro reg any CF Ninja tank will be a huge improvement.

There is a nice variety of tank sizes that you can work with if you're looking for a larger tank. It's not all that odd to see 88/45 tanks with the woodsball/scenario crowd. Plus it depends what your price range is for said tank, where you fill it (a local pro shop, scuba store, field, etc.), and if care if it's new or used.

If you have the tank on your back and your using a remote line, I would go with the 88/4500. But the 88/4500 is to big in my opinion for in between the marker and your sholder.

be warned, the ci between the 3000 and 4500 tanks are not the same. a 48/3000 is longer than a 50/4500 for example

A 68/45 will significantly increase the amount of play time you will have in the woods. I play mostly psp style fields so I use a 68/45 which I love. However one of my friends has a ninja dura 77/45 which isn't much longer that he uses in the woods. I used it once and it wasn't that much bigger. So if you need play scenarios where you're on the field for hours at a time and you have the cash, drop the money for a 77/45 because it feels significantly smaller than an 88 but will be able to hold a LOT more air than your 68/30

As everyone has said, I would definitely go either 68/45 or 77/45. Either will be a good length as well as provide more shots per fill.
