What marker are you putting it on? Ninja is a good tank with a good reg, but some markers will perform better or even require a low pressure output reg.

all you have to do is take out the shims and it becomes LP.

pick whatever tank suits you best, but the ninja reg is the best in the business right now

Most people will tell you to get a Ninja tank. I use a BCA Ninja 68/45 and I think it's nice, but I wouldn't really say it's any better than the other Crossfire, CP, Pure Energy, etc. tanks that I've used. Actually, my dad's standard Ninja 68/45's clearcoat cracked pretty easily. It's still safe to use and Ninja will fix it for free, but it's kind of a pain sending it in to begin with (I've never had another tank crack before). Not trying to bash Ninja, but I personally don't think they're as great as some people make them out to be.

I have a Axe, I've been borrowing a buddies old 68/3000. Yeah, I've noticed quite a few ninja tanks are cracked but it seems like the black tanks and not the grey ones. So, are all ninja regs adjustable?

Think a lot of it is their customer service. A lot of people forget that getting a good rep that doesn't talk to you like you are an idiot goes a long way. Not saying other companies do that, but they hear good things about Ninja, purchase them and don't have a reason to go elsewhere. But I agree I use Ninja products as well and the tanks themselves minus the lightweights are more or less no different (my duracoat is cracked right now too) Regs are well built but have no current reason to change companies.

Moral is go with what can fit you budget and what you think will be good longterm. Also see if you can test them out at a local field and figure out what size you want and what fits you best for your style of play and body type.

And yes All their regs are adjustable on some level but the SLP and SHP regs are designed to fall in rather the low pressure or high pressure zone to allow more flexibility in those zones that a standard reg cannot. So you cant use a SHP to get low pressure. but they are all adjustable in their respective zones.
