LUCKY!

Let me know if you ever decide to sell the Ego.

On the question though, all HPA/N2/Nitro/Compressed Air (Literally the same exact thing) tanks will work.

Look for ones that are adjustable as those egos run better at a tank output of something around 500psi.

High pressure output tanks are 800psi and low pressure outputs are at about 450 psi.

It can run on LP just fine and will shoot a bit more consistently for that matter on LP than on HP.

Depends on what size tank feels good on you. I personally like 68/4500

It's not what tank is best for the marker, it's whats best for you.

Go to your local proshop, try out different tanks till you find the one that is comfortable for you to hold while on your marker and held to your shoulder like you would in a game.

I agree with gamer565, you can also ask any other questions while your there and get to know them. They probably have a field to try out also.

If your small, you want a smaller tank. 4500 psi tanks are the best if you can afford it. Some sizes are 48ci, 50ci and 68ci. Be sure to get a feel for the size before you buy one

Definitely go HPA and for a 4500 psi, but as far as size goes it is all about preference. I prefer a 68 cubic inch(most players do) but you may want something smaller. If you are buying a used tank make sure it has been hydrostatic tested within 5 years(the longer the better since it is mandatory every 5 years you get it retested.)

I have a 68/4500 and a 50/4500, I just bought the 50/4500 and I prefer that over the 68/4500 because I like everything to be brought in nice and tight. Seems like the perfect balance, my arms aren't stretched out or completely tucked to where they are uncomfortable.

pick the size that's best for you. There's not a big difference in manufacturers but Ninja has the best customer service.

Yea Ninja's are nice and light. I also prefer a 50/4500 because I'm smaller in stature and play front. Close and tight, just how I like it

68/4500's seem to be the standard, and the go-to size for people on the fence. As for the brand, Ninja's are nice if you travel with your paintball stuff a lot since United States air travel regulations require any tank to be open and have the regulator off, which Ninja's can do. Other than that as long as the tank is in hydro and doesn't require an oddly high or low pressure, any brand will do.

Ninja 68/4500 carbon with an adjustable regulator. You could also get the Pro version if you want it to be able to swivel.
