Compressed air tank assistance

I recently purchase an invert mini off of this website and I'm happy with it but I'm a new player and have yet to acquire a tank. Any suggestions on a cheap air tank??? My friend who has played for five years says I should get on of the 4500 psi tanks. I am looking for cheap As in less than $100

You could always get one here in the bst. Just make sure that its in hydro. Or you could get one out of hydro, but you'd have to send it out to get hydro which is an additional cost and downtime.

68/45 is your best size. If your shorter or prefer to be really short get a stubby tank. On the bst forum most the tanks should be around your price range. And the tank is in better condition if its been covered (even a thin neoprene helps) and stay away from the myth reg, it can strip some asa

68/45 is your best bet. It's one of the more popular sizes. You can get a great used one for under $100. Just make sure to check that it's still in hydro. And get a cover for it if it doesn't already have one. Good luck.

You could save some money and get one out of hydro then take it to the shop, hydro is nomally 20-30. I got my tank that way, bought it for $50, hydro'd for another $20 now I have a nice 68/45.

Only problem is it may not pass hydro, then you're SOL.

You pay for what you get.

45-50 steel tank, heavy, don't hold lots

80+ CF tank, bigger, and lighter.

the best bang for your buck is a 68 4500 from ninja paintball. the guys are great over @ ninja! i get around 1300 out of my tank full, using my etek 3. i have never had a problem with my tank and if you do the guys at ninja will take care of you from a-z and then some!!! they go for around $140 new, but it's worth it!!!

ninja makes solid tanks. ****ty bonnets. expect to have them replaced several times within its lifespan.

a 2007-2008 year crossfire CF tank in the size and pressure output you want will be your best bet. They're the toughest, most reliable, most durable and one of the most consistent tanks out there.
No joke, I've been through guerrilla and ninja tanks amongst many others already.

go to bst and get a reliable used carbon fiber tank. they can be aquired from as cheep as 80 or so in hydro. or if you dont care about weight get a 48/3000 new from your proshop for about 50$. you will get a decent amount of balls off of a mini with a steely

Dude, don't buy an ultralite bonnet then. The standard bonnet made of SS is plenty strong and if you don't cross thread it there are no worries of stripping the bonnet or ASA. PLUS, I'd rather have to spend $12 on a bonnet instead of a $40 On/Off.

My Crossfire and CP were no where comparable to my Ninja now.
