Which Size Tank for Excal???

I am thinking of either a 45 or 68 Crossfire for these reasons:

45-Will make my gun super light and compact

68-Will reduce recoil w/ the added weight(obviously more air)

What do you think?

If you play in tournys or play somewhere where you can get like all day air, then I think it would be ok to get either. If you play long games, have to pay for each fill.... then I might lean more towards a 68. I use a 68/45 maxflow on my excal with no problems. Its fairly light weight and holds enough air to get me through quite a few games.

I have an 88/4500 Crossfire tank and love it. All I have to do is fill it before an event and I can play all day without having to hit the fill line. I typically fill my tank at the end of the event so that I'm ready for my next practice or tourney.

I use a 45/45 Centerflag and I don't have a recoil problem.

I use either a 68/4500 or 88/4500 tank. It depends on air fees. As Target said, an 88/4500 usually lasts all day. But then again he does spend a lot of time in the dead box......

Hey now! Better to spend some of your time in the dead box, than all of the time on the sideline! You should trade that Viking in on pom-pom's--you'd get more use out of them!

Your serve.
