Should be fine...the etha has the sl3 regulator that can use any input pressure.

Yep, should be good for use with LP, MP or HP output tanks.

Not strictly true:

Yes the Etha has an SL3 inline regulator, BUT consider the fact that the Etha has a higher operating pressure than the likes of the Ego/Etek and Geo and the fact that it is desirable to have a pressure differential between the output pressure of your tank and the Inline reg. We wouldn't recommend running the Etha on an SLP; we'd recommend a mid or high pressure regulator for the best results.

Thanks for the info. I was planning to use a mid pressure tank (550 psi) on my ego and was wondering if I could use the same tank on the Etha.

800psi = HPA. Optimal is anything > 500.

The Etha doesn't really like the SLP regs haha. Just as Nicky T said.

We gave it a try and it just didn't shoot right.

I just got my etha and a ninja pro reg 800 psi stock.....is it fine for me to use that tank psi or put it down to either 700 psi, 550 psi or 450 psi

Like it said above you could turn it all the way down to 550 psi and it should be fine. The 450 psi setting might start to cause some shooting issues but you could try it anyways and let us know what the results are.

In reality to you would notice little or no difference. Anything greater than 500psi is perfectly fine
