people say get centerflag over crossfire. they are both nice though. defenitely get a 4500 and get it at a high pressure output if ur buying a preset.

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.

Crossfire...

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.

It flows so much anyway more flow wouldn't even make a difference. I would recommended a centerflag though. Mine works flawless.

big_scott: 200psi actually.

Centerflags are also excellent.
