Tank cover

How important is a tank cover? I am thinking about getting the ninja 68/4500 grey ghost and it's already pushing my budget, do I absolutely need a tank cover or can I just tape the back to prevent slipping? I play recball and starting to get into speedball if that makes a difference.

It's not super important to have one, but some people like it as a comfortability option. I personally want it because I hate feeling the tank on my shoulder, I'd rather have a cover to put against my shoulder. If you are on a tight budget, Exalt makes tank covers that are $16ish, depending where you go.

Also, the cover prevents the tank from getting scratched if you drop your gun, slide the wrong way, or if you're a snake player, it will protect it from the dives and crawling you have to do.

It's a cheap and well worth investment, because you need to protect and take care of the expensive CF tanks, also if you were to sell it, it is better if the tank is in great conditions.

You can find cheap tank covers, the Valken ones range between 12 and 20 bucks at ANS.

I'd say it's kind of a big concern, especially if you intend to rehydro your tank. If there's any exposed carbon fiber it will immediately fail visual inspection.

Get a cover. I broke my own rule about it and played on a field with only a tank butt I knew I shouldn't have and put a big scratch into mine.
And if you ever were to scratch it and expose the fibers the tank needs to drained of pressure and taken out of service immediately. Not just when it's time for hydro.
