HP or LP tank for my NT10?

Couldn't find any stickies or threads on this. Can anyone tell me if I should get a high pressure or low pressure tank for my NT10 and possibly why? I'm thinking of getting the Ninja dura pro SLP carbon fiber tank.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

From what ive read. This are MY thoughts

Using a lp tank you will get better consistency shot for shot. I think it is easier to regulate lower pressure more consistenly

In a hp tank air will flow differently. Higher pressure flows faster. As pressure drops so will the rate.

So in an lp tank the flow rate will be more consistent.

I was using a hp tank on my nt. the fps was a +-9
Now using medium pressure(400) & the fps is +- 3

Theres videos to test efficiency on hp vs lp vs slp
There is no efficiency change.

Once again these are MY thoughts

Awesome. Thanks, dude. I guess a big concern for me as well was I know in the past I've seen HP tanks go into LP guns and things exploded. I don't want to burst anything inside the gun. But it's good to know the LP, for you, at least was more consistent.

Is there a difference? I mean, obviously there is a difference, but why one over the other?

Assuming both tanks use the same brand/quality reg, it won't really make a difference, other than maybe how hard it is to flip your on/off.

I agree but Blu will be along shortly to tell you to hit the gym.

For sure. I guess I'll have to tweak it when I get it to see what I like. I'm not familiar with guns where you can also adjust things on the bolt for different performance. So exciting!

If you use lp your arms will look like his right hand, if you use hp it will look like his left
