What kind of tank do you guys recomend for an imp..
right now i got a pmi 48/3k
im looking at the 45/45 or the 68/45, which would you recomend, lookin to get something under 170. ebay has some nice deals on crossfires but that dude has some evil feed back
presets are not adjustable. they come set at a certain pressure. the only difference from that and a tank with a reg directly attatched to it is that its adjustable. if you want to save a lot of money buy a preset. it will work just the same as a tank+reg combo since there is already a max-flo on ur gun (hopefully).
the only reason people buy the tanks with regs on them as far as i know is that its a tighter setup if you like to attatch ur tank directly to the grip frame. a preset will screw into an adapter just like a co2 tank and a tank+regulator has to botl on to something. if you have anymore qurestions just ask...im not good at explaining things.
I have an Low pressure out put 45/45 on my impy. It works very well. Pretty consistant with my vert max flow. I was more looking for high flow because I had the max flow and the crossfire took care of that for me. The only problem I have is the number of shots I get from a fill. At my field we only get up to 3k psi, so i have to refill after every game almost. The general rule I have heard is 10 shots per cubic inch at 3k and 15 for 4.5k. It works well though. Macdevs are a little more expensive but they work nicely as well.
I have a Low Pressure (450psi) output Crossfire 68/4500. It's great... very high flow, no shootdown. Some people don't like these (FOM in particular), but I seen no reason not to get it. After seeing Crossfire's "Angel Test" at Skyball, I was sold.
Whichever you decide upon, don't get anything smaller than 68ci. Most places only fill to 3000psi, and you won't get many shots from a 45ci @ 3000psi.

wouldn't a high pressure crossfire provide you with a better flow than a low pressure. I know its recommended that if you double reg a gun to have the tank reg going at least 300-400psi higher than the Secondary to prevent starving the Secondary reg. Keep in mind that that is the bare minimum.
