Why dont you make your subject so it relates to your thread?


It depends on your money situation. You could get a screw in like a Pure Energy or get a nice high flow tank like a Conquest. I am looking into selling my maxflows for Conquests. There are a bunch of tanks out there. It depends on how much money you want to spend and if you want a screw in or a non screw in.

Or take the time and do a search.I believe this has been covered more than once

It seems like anymore people dont want to take the time and look for things they would rather have someone do it for them.

I had the same concerns. I was using a MaxFlo on my Excalibur, but wanted the versatility of being able to use one or two tanks on all my guns. I saw a lot of people who say they use presets on Excals with no problems, but was still a little unsure. So I called AKA, and they said there really was no benefit to using an expensive adjustable, other than you can turn the output pressure down.

After that I sold the MaxFlo, bought a HyperFlow preset, and made a little money in the process. Now I run that tank and a backup NitroDuck 68/3000 on every gun I own, works great on the Excalibur.

You don't need an adjustable, but when using a preset make sure you get a good one, and make sure your on/off or bottomline is giving you good flow.

I personally use the Pure Energy or PEC tanks with no problems. I like being able to easily switch tanks. I'm going to go to the Tippmann vs the World game. Air is VERY expensive at Hell Survivors. I'll fill up all my tanks here at the shop and then switch them as needed. I won't have to buy a single fill. (If anyone else is going I'll be staging out of campsite #8. If you need anything for your Excalibur I'll be available to work on it. I'll have my Laptop with me and can turn up your ROF.) The output of my tanks are right at 800 to 850 psi. The Sidewinders handle it with no problems.

Yeah, buying 4 nitro tanks is way cheaper than just paying for air.

It comes set at 10.5bps, but with the data cable you can bump it up to 13bps.

Ever buy air at Hell Survivors? It pretty much is cheaper!! Actually I do a lot of trading and I got my tanks through trades so the out of pocket cost was pretty low. I do like not being limited to only one tank. If it develops a problem I can simply swap it out. It looks like our team is possibly going to go with the Conquest tanks and regs. It all depends on the sponsorship package they offer us. I hope to finalize it at World Cup.

AKA has the max rate of fire set at 13BPS. The reason for this is because of an agreement made by several manufacturers at the 1999(?) ZAP Amateur.

I agree it was a good line. I hadn't thought about it until you pointed it out but buying multiple tanks just to save on air fills is kinda dumb!
