Which tank reg should I replace?

So I'm considering getting a Ninja Pro reg so I can adjust my input pressure to 550psi. So I have to swap out one of the regs on the 2 bottles I have but cant decide which one! Im' pretty sure both the bottles I have are preset @850psi


Which reg would You swap out and why?

Its probably just the angle of the photo because I stood them up next to each other and they are almost the exact same height.

Same with weight. I don't have a scale but the are too close to tell a difference.

Is one just a better reg in general? Performance wise, does one "out-flow" the other? Reliability too? maybe I'm over thinking this lol

The Dye reg has a horrible recharge rate, the PE regulator is actually better than the Dye reg.
IIRC, back when those tanks were sold, the only reg with a faster recharge than the PE was the crossfire reg(the old one).
I know for a fact the dye is the worst reg to ever be sold in terms of recharge speed, the old 3A tanks(the ones that blew up) had better regulators on them(in terms of recharge speed).

So, to answer your question: you should definitely replace the dye reg.

I had them both recently re-hydroed at the same time! But based on what someone else posted and some research that I've done....I think the Dye reg should go. It seems to have a lot of bad reviews for various reasons.

Hope I don't insult your intelligence, make sure they're empty before replacing regs. Also, those PE regs are much more difficult to get off than other regs. I broke my reg removal tool trying to get a PE reg off. They use a thread locker when they build them to keep them in place. So, just another point for the Dye reg.

Dye regs suck ****
Even worse than Empire/PMI/KEE regs.
That's saying something.

So swap that one out.

That's the impression I'm getting so far. Well the ninja reg I ordered showed up today. Now if I could just figure out how to get the reg off....

getting a reg off can be tricky i suggest taking the burst disks and the gauge off putting a rubber mat like a mouse pad on either side of it and put it in a vice. then just simply turn the bottle. there are a couple of do it yourself blocks for the vice on youtube and what not. i know shocktech used to make a tool for it.

I think I saw a tool being re-released recently. Also, strap wrenches are amazing for this. Your local field might have a tool.

Just wanted to follow up and thank everyone for the info. Got the reg off with some vice grips and slapped the pro v2 on there. Like it a lot. Can't wait to get in out on the field!

I'd go for the Ninja Pro reg, given it's small nature and reliability.
