Looking for suggestions

I am looking for suggestions on purchasing a tank for my ETEK 3 AM. I do not have any brand preference. I play mostly speedball, mid-front player and I am 5'10". Not too concerned about $$ right now cause I am just shopping, cheaper the better though!! If there is any other info required, please just ask. Thanks for all of your help!!:crash:

Ive been shooting a ninja bottle for the past 2 years and loved it but really any bottle will do. Just make sure you get one thats a good size fit for you because one thats too short is gonna make your gun feel awkward. Im 5'7" and I use a 68/45 but if you have longer arms then you may want to go with a longer bottle. Not because the 68/45 doesnt hold enough air but the longer bottle is gonna put the gun in the right position for your body, but like everything else I say on here grab someones tank and give it a feel or take your piece to a shop and Im sure they will be more then happy to let you pick them up and give them a feel

Ninja makes fantastic tanks.
I have a 62/3000 system which is heavy as crap but has never had a problem with breaking or cracking. The regulator is very consistant and is adjustable through the removal of shims on the inside.
For tank length, I would go with a 48/4500 or 68/4500 depending on your preferences. I'm about 6' and that 62/30 does just fine length-wise. It's a little long, but I'm still growing so I figure it'll be just fine by the time I stop growing...
Crossfire makes decent gear, as well as Guerilla Air and Pure Energy. If you can find an older tank on the BST forums here, you'll get it for a deal. I bought my Ninja new and probably always will buy my tanks new because of the safety factor, but it all comes down to personal preferance.

I would avoid 3000psi tanks because youre gonna get a LOT more shots off a 4500. Also a 48cu will be way too short for you unless you have little munchin arms. I mean Ive got little monkey paws and a 68cu tank is the perfect length for me so being that youre quite a bit taller Id say a 68/45 should be the smallest you even consider

I personally like the GA 68/45 with Myth2 reg.
perfect size, weight and capacity for my taste

Honestly, its all about your preference. Go to your local shop and see which one feels the best. I'm 6'5" and I prefer a 45/45.

ninjas are really nice but personally i like to use crossfire, id go with some sort of 68/4500 stubby, not too long of a tank, and you get a good amount of shots out of it

Crossfire, Guerilla Air and Ninja all make great tanks. I prefer the myth2 from GA, but any 4500 tank will do.
