I use a 13ci 3000psi tank on my trilogy pump and get about 130 shots from it. I really appreciate the light weight and compact dimensions (that trilogy is a brick). I only go out with ~100 rounds anyway so it serves its purpose for me.

I use my 68/45 cause it sits comfy in my shoulder. Try different sizes till you find one you like. The 13's are sweet though if you aren't using much paint

I use a 68/45 because I need the length. I had a 50/45 but it was just too short for me. As far as air goes, I never had any issues with my 50/45 tank.

Would a 68/4500 be a little long for pump

I am a short person but my arms are a little longer than they should be for my height.

Anything would be a step up from the 48/3000 ninja tank I have been using for the past 2 years.

13ci if you plan on shooting less than 150 balls per game. ~48ci if you plan to shoot more.

The more air you carry, the more paint you'll carry, the more paint you'll shoot.

Carry less, shoot less. That's why you play pump in the first place right?

i think a 45/4500 would be good same length as my 68/45 only way lighter.

Depends. I'm assuming you are not playing stock class since you are asking about tank size. How long are your arms? When holding your gun in your hand the tank should come to the crook of your elbow. Which ever tank and regulator combo it takes to reach your elbow is your answer. Different companies have different size dimensions for their regulators and their 45/45 68/45 50/45 and 48/45 bottles so you just have to try them and find the right combo that fits you the best.

50/45 stubbys are about 3" shorter than 68/45s. it's all about what you're comforable with. i shoot a CCM S5 (fullblock) and i hate it when my beavertail touches my mask, so i use a 68/45 on it. i can't wait until i get my S6.5, i can use my 50/45 and no mask bite!!!

50's are really small. You don't want the backblock to smack your mask when you pump the gun. I use a 45/45 or a 68/45 on all my pumps.

Measure your forearm and find out the measurements on different tank sizes. What tank are you using currently?
