well it is low pressure so it will not work as well as a high pressure tank but if you can pick it up for cheap then go ahead it will be a considerable advance over co2 if not just get a pure energy tank it will work great and they are inexpensive

not sure what you mean the tank on ebay is a 4500 psi and pure energy makes 3000 4500 and 5000(i think they still make those) tanks and 3000 psi tanks are only bad if you shoot like a half a case of paint a round or if your local field does not fill them or if you play in the woods all the time.

well... i personally wouldnt buy it unless i was getting an absolute steal
first to note, its smart parts, i dont really like the company, even if u do, they are not exactly renowned for their nitro systems, mite be better to stick with the proven crossfire or pure energy
second, its 88ci, u may like this but i find it too be too big and bulky
third, its the adjustable output, so it mounts, i kinda like it to just screw directly in to the asa.
finally, note the fact that shipping is 15 bucks so u have to add that to whatever it ends at, 15 is a lot for shipping
usually there is a farily set price of things in ebay, when i was in the market for a nitro, the same nitros (for example crossfire 70ci 4500psi) always ended at around the same price therefore even tho this one started at a low price it will prolly go up and end around the same as the rest of max flo nitros usually do.
if it does end at a great price and u the size and all... go for it

the statement sumthin/3000 isnt good to get is definetaly uneducated, whoever said should have explained themselves theres no difference as far as how "good" the tank is, just how much air it holds, it depends on how many shots u need per fill, where u play, how much u shoot, etc 3000psi(per square inch, in this case pounds of air i think) is gonna be the same tank cept with less pounds of air per square inch, therefore if the tanks are the same size then a 4500psi is gonna have a 33% increase in capacity per fill over the 3000psi.

if you dont mind putting something from smart parts on your goose and like the whole ajustable thin then sure and make sure that the 88ci is something you will be will to carry for a whole day at the field i like my pure energy 48/3000 just fine i can fill every game and it does not bother me so i got a good nitro tank for like 50 bucks here on the nation and i am happy

if you have a fill station at your field and you are not annoyed by having to fill often then yes also check if fields in your area have fills to 4500 psi

THAT is the key right there! Why pay extra for a 4500 tank vs. a 3000 tank if you can't ever get a 4500 fill where you play?

Well most of the industrial cylinders are 6000 psi, but for insurance reasons some fields and stores just will not do it. Plus that scion 5000 psi tank is a piece of crap, i have seen four blow the internals, and had to be rebuilt.
