Looks like the extra resin is what's cracked.. Just bought it.. Is this bottle trash or not. Has a small leak .. Takes 3 days to leak 4500 psi.. Just want to make sure the bottle is good.. Nervous having 4500 psi on my chin!

So the crack is leaking!!!!!!?
if the crack is leaking I wouldn't have that thing anywhere near my head. sounds like a ticking time bomb, Id contact the manufacture ASAP or get a replacement, cause I doubt that thing would pass a hydro test.

if its full right now bleed it slowly and empty it as soon as possible

addition - a crack like that is grounds for failure of a hydro test by the way

Don't know if it's leaking from the crack or the reg... No air since it leaked down.. Should I get a fill and test it.. Water and soap?? It's a crossfire . Think they would go anything about it? Never dealt with them before..

I personally would suggest talking to the manufacture before you do anything. if it was a chip in the cosmetic coat like ninja duracoat tank I would say shouldn't be a big deal but if its a crack in the actual tank it is usually grounds for a failed hydro. Call the manufacture and see what they say, If you have a hydro facility nearby stop by and see if they would fail it or if they would take it. IM not a expert by any means but your talking about 4500PSI next to your head going off

If they take it they will find out with safety glass and everything else if its leaking when it pops during a hydro test. You most certainty don't want to find out its a leak when you are playing and it pops or you get it filled by someone and it goes off in their hand.

I highly doubt the crack is leaking; because if it was it would have blown out when it was being filled. Since a crack would have to go through the gel coat, fibers, and the aluminum cylinder itself to cause any kind of leak. It looks like a stress crack on the gel coat or a very light impact. Though impacts usually make a more round if it was a drop so I would lean more towards a stress crack. That being said you have a leak somewhere in the regulator, which is common honestly from any manufacturer even with testing them before they go out.
You can talk to Crossfire about it but when it comes to clear coat I dare anybody to find one that doesn't have air bubbles or a small stress crack in it truth be told.

no problem, always good to error on the side of caution with those things.
