Pure Energy or Crossfire?

I heard that pure energy n2 tanks have hardcore shootdown, and the crossfires keep up real well.But if their both just pin valve screwins how does one do spectacular and the other suck monky balls?Does pure energy tanks really have shootdown?Thanks.

guys...

All pin valves are the same. With the exception of the new crossfire design comming out. They all use the same design of regulator... the best one... is the cheapest one.

Personally I love the PMI tanks, I think they are great for the money. I have experienced no shootdown what so ever. I have an 88/4500 and it has tons of air, but is the perfect shape in my mind(same length as a 68 just fatter). Also rumor has it that PMI PE tanks will only have to be hydro'd every 5 years instead of the normal 3 years. Plus you can get them really cheap here .

Here is the information on the extended hydro-testing dates.

Carleton makes most of the HPA tanks used in paintball ( i know it makes the PE and Crossfire tanks).
Carleton Technologies Inc, has been granted an extension to the 3-year retest requirement for carbon fiber full composite cylinders!
The Department of Transportation has granted Carleton Technologies Inc, Pressure Technology Division (Carleton PTD) an extension to the 3-year hydrostatic retest procedure for all carbon fiber full composite cylinders manufactured to DOT CFFC Exemption DOT-E-11194.

The retest requirement, by law, is now every 5 years and is based upon the following conditions:


Cylinders tested prior to July 1, 2001 must be retested within 36 months of the retest date marked on the cylinder.

Cylinders manufactured or tested after July 1, 2001 must be re-inspected and hydrostatically retested at least once every 5 years.
The granting of the DOT extension is great news for users of Carleton PTD cylinders because it will reduce the number of retests required over the current 15-year life of the composite cylinder. This will result in lower operating cost for users of our composite cylinders.
This extension DOES NOT pertain to Carleton PTD fiberglass cylinders manufactured to DOT FRP-1 Exemption DOT-E-11005. These cylinders must still be retested every 3 years.

a list of what tanks are carbon fiber and which are fiberglass.

Aren't PMI and Crossfire the exact same thing except for the material?

I've owned both a Crossfire and a Pure Energy tank, and I have to say I like the Pure Energy tank better. The Pure Energy tanks DON'T have any shootdown in my experience. They're also lighter than the Crossfire tanks.

ALL SCREW-IN TANKS ARE THE SAME!!! They all use the pin-valve design, so they are the same. I just like the PE tanks cause you can get them @ huge sizes for cheap. Crossfires are nice, too. So are the CenterFlags.
