Stako tanks are not legal in the US because the core does not go all the way to the neck of the bottle. It stops where the bottle begins to taper and supposedly leaks air since there is no core in that area.

LOL - dunno who told you that, but obviously it is impossible to have a functioning tank without a core in an area

They are not legal in the US, because DOT does not have a regulative for approving flexible liners as of yet

The reason Stako tanks sometimes leak around the neck is the internal "bladder". When the tank is completely empty it forms a gap between the bladder and the composite. That is why you only fill a small amount first when filling a empty Stako.
That will forse the trapped air to "leak" out the neck. I usually leave it for about 30 minutes @ ~800psi. After that i fill it as fast as the filling station allows.
I have yet to see a tank of any kind blow.

That.

Also they aren't rehydroable so they're good for 3 years (maybe it's 5 years I don't remember) and then that's it, you need a new bottle.

I hope they are never legalized in the US. Currently, tanks in the States are pretty idiot proof. You can flash fill to your hearts content, and completely emptying the tank is not an issue. The special care recommended for a Stako is not something I want to entrust to children, nor is it something I want to bother with myself.

Stakos are only good for 5 years then must be condemned and the price converted into american dollars pushes $200+ last I checked.
So that's potentially $600 over 15 years compared to a $140-$160 investment initially with say $20-$30 every 5 years over 15 years total.
The monetary value alone is a killer for a tank that is lighter then all the rest on the market.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
