Well I'm perfectly healthy and bored at work

Anyways, I say wait until the Adrenalin is released. Adrenalin will be selling most of their products on the A.I seperately as usual. Get and angled asa and grip. I say wait for them simply because they are going to be nicely milled and look better than the current stock ones. They are also going to have a large volume to them I believe so there is another advantage.

After that get yourself a 45/45k and your laughing

How about keeping your vert max flow, and getting a high pressure max flow tank? Dual regging with the best reg in the planet can u say: 299 299 299?

2 great regs in a row won't insure the same velocity with each shot. A maxflow going into a maxflow would be a bit of overkill.

Well I have my vertical Max-flo for sale, its the silver one off my ROS, its never been used, if interested send me a PM, I want $145 for it, they are $125 new from the factory but the anodizing and polishing cost me more, and there are only 5 in the country like it

Yeah i hear the X-Fire is awesome.. but isnt it a no-no to put a tank without an on/off onto an Impulse? you gotta gas 'em up slow right? or is that a myth?

Who did the test with Crossfire? I have never had good luck with they're tanks, The Max-flo's, Center-Flag and PMI tanks are the best I have seen.

You know i have heard ALL SORTS of fokes "repete' how good susch in such tank is--most have never used it or if they have only one example of it.

Here's what i can tell you from EXPERINCE.

The Crossfire tanks are VERY prone to Shoot Down. We ahve seen this a LOT of times on Shockers and Tippman 98 with the "RT" option. I have also have many crosfires show up on guns at the shop where the tanks suddenly went "free Flow' and dunped 4000 psi directly into the guns they were screwed into.

Now I have seen the guys at the show with their crosfire tanks mounted on angels with realy big gauges showing off just how little they shoot down-- but many of you know that you can make an angel shoot REALY FAST with a VERY short dwell, and it will use about zero gas. I have never seen them shoot over a chro with those guns.

In addition, we have a former team mate taht has moved to a team that is sponered by crossfire. as a result he had to swap his maxflo with gas thru for a Crossfire with angel reg. He has never had so much problem with a combo in his life. (BTW he is an Angel certifed tech- so he KNOWS what he is doing on the gun) Just as a "proof" he went back to his maxflo on the gun to screw around with- andsuddenly all the problems went away!

SOOOO...

I would HIGHLY suggest you go with a Center Flag screw in tank and keep your vert max flo

FOM

Heres some more...

I asked the guys at Skyball If I could see the angels they were using. The guy grabbed one, and while he was handing it to me asked why I wanted to see it. Now its in both of our hands and I told him I wanted to see what the dwell was at. He instantly jerked it out of my hands, put it back on the shelf and said "sorry, only employees can see the guns."

Thats the exact set-up I have, and I can second his recommendation. I shoot +/- 3 fps at the Chrono and have not idea what this "shoot down" thing you guys are talking about is
