You will be waiting a VERY long time. Won't get any better than the tank you just bought.

I would avoid any tanks that can't come stock with an LP or adjustable regulator.

Other than that, any 68/45 that's still in hydro is the standard option.

You know it really all comes down to what you play. All in all the 68/4500 is the best option for a few reasons.

There may be times when you play at a place that can't fill to 4500....maybe only 3000. Or you may end up playing outlaw ball using scuba tanks. In those cases a smaller tank size will get you way less shots.

On the other hand, there may be times when you can fill to 4500 in which case you need a 4500 tank to take advantage of it. You'll be kicking yourself if you have a 3000psi tank.

There really is no "Best size" according to feel. Once you use it a few times you won't care anymore. The standard 68/4500 will work on almost any gun in your future as well. There aren't too many guns these days without an adjustable rail of some sort. Half an inch one way or another and you'll be fine. Ironically the axe may be one of the guns without a rail adjustment lol. I can't remember....

In most cases the 4500 is the better choice.

However....

Depending on where you play you may not have any disadvantages to using a 3000psi tank. For example if you play at a field that only fills up to 3000 then your wasting money with a 4500. Also if you dont play scenarios or games where you empty a 3000 tank one game and your getting free fills anyway then it doesnt matter. You may just have to fill it a few more times over the course of the day. Once I get all day air at my local field it doesnt matter if am using my 4500 or 3000 as far as game play I refill every other game anyway.

The Carbon fiber tanks are lighter but personally I cant tell when I am playing.

So in most cases the 4500 is better but if you only play at a few fields and know how they are setup you may be fine with the 3000. Its stupid to say a 3000 is a waste of money, for some people thats all they need.

when i got my mini and switched to air i thot a 45/3000 tank would be fine. wrong i ran out of air almost 3 times during a case of paint i got a 72/45 and a 45/45 now and i almost dont run out in the 72 although they are a lil bigger than most ppl preffer. but go with the 4500 i believe youd be saving money in the long run on just buying air depending on playing time

THIS IS 100% INCORRECT INFORMATION....just as a heads up

if a bottle develops a crack in the outer gel coat, which can occur on ANY manufacturer's bottle, as long as the fibers underneath have not been damaged or are fraying, the bottle is still 100% safe to use.

PLEASE, when it comes to safety, DO NOT put out incorrect information. Do your homework or consult an air systems manufacturer to get their official stance. Since we are a certified DOT Hydrotest Facility, the information im giving you is 100% accurate.

If you have the money, you might as well get the 4500 psi tank right away instead of buying a cheaper one now and then purchasing it later on. Most 4.5k tanks are light, small, and hold a lot of air (hence the 4.5k name)

I suggest a 68ci, if you're starting out. They're the most generally used size (very close in size to the 48/3000) and will be the easiest to resell, if you decide to. If you plan to play back, or something, you can get a 90ci, that will last a ton of shots, but those usually are rather large. If you're very short, you will want something smaller than 68ci, since it will be more comfortable for you, but we're talking 5'2" or less, usually (though it's whatever is comfortable.

Check B/S/T, especially gearbag sales, allot of people sell nice stuff for reasonable prices, but make sure to ask when it was hydroed, it's dumb to buy something that you'll need to shell out another $40 to re-hydro in 3 months (although if it's a great deal, just keep the added cost in mind).

If you do go carbon fiber (most 4500s are), make sure to get a tank cover, if your tank gets cracked it's not usable anymore and can be very dangerous.
its actually only ike 20-25.. but besides the point
