Man a lot of haters in here.

Man this is the most rediculous complaint I have ever heard about the Angel AIR. "ITs too heavy its too heavy." A bunch of wusses. Man do you realize how much a loaded angel weighes? an extra pound or two shouldn't matter. If you complain about weight go home and lift some weights.

Bulky? are you kidding all paint guns are bulky. They have this huge loader on top of the gun, and those other systems arent that much smaller. a 68 cu in tank is all about the same size. Maybe its a little longer if thats the case go buy a drop forward.

EXPENSIVE???? YOU OWN A FREAKIN ANGEL. do you realize that you own one of the most expensive marker on the planet. Why the hell are you whining about an extra 100 on an air system.

I understand if you dont' like a system, but base it on something other than what I've been hearing so far. The inconsistency part would be a reason but that also could mean ou don't know what you are doing. Which is the case of most people on this forum. (They buy tinker with it and when it doens' work its the manufacturer fault for the owners stupidity.)

I agree with ya Cursed. but you have to understand that most of the players on this "forum" are also little kids and that an extra pound or so make a world of a difference to their tiny arms.

I agree with ya again being an x marine I know what you mean paintguns are bulky and I have seen Angel AIR and they aren't that big.

Well Cursed, some people actually save up for awhile for their Angel so you really can't base them owning an Angel and relate that to their wealth. but you do have a point, they could save up a little longer. and if they can't afford a decent system then maybe the Angel just isnt' the right gun for them. its just like the guy who bought the tricked out expensive cocker and then can't play for 2 months because he paying the credit card bill. but there are stupid people in this world.

Anyhow good points overall. About the 3 systems get anyone you feel comfortable with dont' listen to anyone about which system is better and more conssistent. Basically all of them work well just see which one looks better and is more sexxxxxxy to ya and get that one.

the only good tank for an angel it has to be one that is dual reg the only tanks in the industry dualreg are nitroduck,max flow and now the air.If you want consitency choose between this 3.

sorry to break the news to you, but the max flow and the AIR aren't double regged.

Sorry to break the news to you but he meant the only systems worth dual regging on the market is the NitroDuck, Max Flow and Air.

Actually in a way they are. If you buy a gun without a regulator and you buy a system like an Air America, you'll need 2 regs to run it. But not with a Max-flow or the AIR; you don't need a second reg.

yep hes right. the only true double regulated tank are some of the Nitroduck models (I think the SS 4500 and the Megareg)

A few things from a guy that works in a shop and has to deal with at least 2 of these systems.

MaxFlow - a good system. Typically steady as a rock and a very good balanced reg. It's a bit of a maintance ***** but a little work on your part goes a long way.

A note about max flows, if you are thinking about a warp feed, the lack of being able to swap fill and tank guages makes things a bit rough but it's workable.

Another note on Maxflows - if you are having a problem with bleed down, buy an Automag RT parts kit and change the MaxFlows 70 durameter #008 oring with the RT's 90 Durameter #008. Solves most of the leak down problems I have encountered.



Air - my one real ***** about them is the fact you need a special tool for doing repairs. The early ones had some flaws in the way some part were machine which caused machine flashing to get caught in the system causing spikes and other leaks.

When they are working they are nice. Having sold about 10-15 of them most have been back for some problem in regulation or leaks. To me thats a bad thing.

Another thing is that is one of the transducers goes you have to peplace BOTH tansducers and the Board. Thats not good or cheap unless you are lucky enough to have a service center handy.

for the people that have the systems could u weigh them to see how much difference in weight the tanks have. Or if someone knows how much they weigh then that will work.. I deciding between the same three systems for my angel 2.
