TiPX tank output pressure

So I just got my TiPX and I see in the manual that the pressure relief valve is set at 350 psi and I have a 4500 tank I was planning on using it with a tank that has an output pressure set at 550 psi. I have a ninja with an adjustable reg but it will only go down to 450 psi. Will I be able to use my 4500 tank or will I need to buy a 3000 tank with a lower output pressure?

It has a regulator. You should be fine with whatever tank you have. The TiPX shoots better with CO2 than HPA so follow the directions on adjusting the velocity. You will have to change the adjustment significantly if you are switching from one to the other. Don't be super surprised if you can't get it over 270 fps on HPA.

The pressure relief valve keeps the regulator from over-pressurizing. The regulator that's built into the marker drops it to 350 or below.

There is a cure for that. You need a Ninja SHP tank regulator set to 950psi output. Ninja designed the SHP tank regs specifically to solve that problem in Tippmann markers.
