Tank Covers VS tank grips VS Hockey Tape

What's your favorite.

Tank Covers (like zip up/snap on ones)
Butt Covers (rufus Dog and Exalt make some)
Or just plain old hockey Tape
Write back on your opinion!

Also State why you like these!

Personally I like hockey tape. Nothing like feeling my crossfire 68/4500 tank right there next to me, with a little tape to keep her steady!

I like to use a tank cover. It's worth the $15 to let it get torn up whenever I dive or some idiot that I let borrow it drops it so that the tank stays looking like new.

I put my tank cover over my butt cover. Oddly enough, it's ****ing phenomenal. It's like retardedly grippy, but it doesn't slide like a bare tank with a full cover normally does, and if it's one of those covers with the Silicone, then it's extra grippy on the outside of the cover as well... And as a fat bonus, it covers THE WHOLE tank from any damage, looks good while it's doing it, too. I warn thee, it's a ***** to put on and remove. I will never take it off unless I have to re-hydro, which I will intentionally do it like years and years late.

Tank cover.


How does covering one grip with another grip make it more grippy? Seems to defy logic...

I'm assuming that you are referring to increased internal grip by using a rubber slip cover under a full size cover. Well, tanks have different dimensions, so tank covers are generally sewed up a little larger to accomodate for this. Also, some do not have the best non-slip surfaces inside the tank cover, allowing it to rotate on the tank. Most of the rubber slip covers that I have felt are very tacky, so putting that on the tank and sliding a tank cover over it takes up more space. This makes for a tighter fit, and no rotation of the tank cover, making for a more enjoyable paintball experience.

Well, I didn't think of that. Prob because putting my tank covers on is like a woman putting on jeans.

Still doesn't add grip on the outside, though.
