Tank pressure help

As I'm looking, I notice three Ninja CF 68/4500 that each have different regulators:

SHP Regulator - 1100 PSI output
Adjustable between 450, 550, 700 & 800 PSI Settings
SLP Regulator - 300 PSI output

I'm assuming the SLP regulator are for low pressure markers. I'm also assuming the adjustable would be for when you're straddling multiple types of markers with different needs. Would it be better though to have a constant 300, or a constant 1100, rather than a variable that doesn't hit those marks?

For reference sake - my two markers:
Tippman 98
Smart Parts Nerve

id rather have it adjustable so that if in case i upgrade to a marker with low pressure needs, i can just drop the output pressure on the tank,

BTW i PM'd you...

get the adjustable one. A tippmann 98 (as well as the A5 and regular X7) will not work will with low pressure unless you get an LP kit for it (which I dont think they even make anymore). Your nerve will work fine on high pressure (7-800 range, dont know if it works on anything lower). I dont even know what you would use super high pressure for since everything works great at around 800 psi (average psi for CO2). The adjustable reg will allow you to go down to a lower pressure (after a little work on it, it involves disassembly) to use on your nerve if possible. This will allow you to shoot deeper into the tank at consistent pressures meaning more shots between tank fills.

Thanks for help and the response folks, it definitely makes sense to get an adjustable.

Yep. Low pressure is limited to high end. SHP is limited to only a few special setups. Adjustable can hit everything in between.
