New ImmortaLITE HPA tank - with new Aura Ascent regulator

We are proud to introduce an evolution of the proven Immortal Air Aura regulator used by some of the very best teams and players in the paintball world. The new Aura Ascent and ImmortaLITE carbon fiber cylinders are an extension of the soul that has powered the innovation of Immortal Air - a refusal to accept “good enough” as enough and a belief that better is always out there to be created, crafted and delivered to our customers.

The remarkable new Aura Ascent from Immortal Air optimizes everything a serious paintball player has come to demand from a world-class compressed air system - efficiency, consistency, reliability, and sheer performance in a compact, lightweight, easily serviceable package. Dynamic seating surfaces, high pressure urethane o-rings, and a protective coating to minimize friction and prevent corrosion. Add a fixed port gas body to create a more durable, more efficient, more consistent, more reliable regulator.

Paired to various - sized ImmortaLITE bottles featuring truly worldwide certification and a non-limited life span*. The Immortal Air Aura Ascent regulator provides a noticeable difference in consistency, efficiency, and overall performance of any paintball marker to which it is attached - a truly instant upgrade!

For increased performance, for increased efficiency, for improved reliability and extended service life of the beating heart of any paintball marker setup, look to the Aura Ascent regulator and the ImmortaLITE cylinders from Immortal Air. We’re living in the future - bring your paintball gear with you - choose Immortal Air!

I just wish I knew where to buy their stuff. They never seem to have anything in stock on their website and I can’t find anybody who actually carries their products.

What’s the difference between the Aura Ascent™ and the Aura™? Because there’s nothing on their website regarding the Ascent...

Also, has anyone used any of these regs? They’re claiming an up to 30% (?!) increase in efficiency. This is wild. If +30% is what people are actually getting, I’m hopping aboard this ship.

I would like to understand how a tank reg can make a Luxe 2.0 30% more efficient ... or a Geo, or a DM, or C6 ...

Can anyone explain that? I would really like to know if that is possible.

Same bottles as first strikes bottles made in Korea. Really nice bottles from the 2 68’s I had.

Totally clueless about the reg so far though.

Shopping on there website can be difficult at times. I always reach out on facebook chat or email and have immediate communication. Can't wait to get a couple of these in!

Wait. Silly question. Does this mean that you never need to rehydro this tank? Probably not.

No, this tank still follows the 5 year rehydro rule, but can be extended well beyond the classic 15years of normal paintball tanks to a total of 38years.

Could we get some good pictures of the reg disassembled?

That tells a more accurate story than a features list.

"77/4500 Bottle without regulator comes in at approximately 2.06 lbs"

I was hoping for a much lighter bottle but these are same weight as most gayston bottles.

The fact that these dont expire after a certain amount of years is nice though.

Looks like the new tanks are up on the website. Preorder price on a 68/4500 is $160

They say "up to 30%". My guess is they are comparing how deep into the tank you can shoot.

For example:
"A competitor reg" cant consistently shoot 300 fps when pressure reaches 700psi
Aura can shoot consistently till 200psi.

I'm hoping that your guess is true! I know if that's the case, then markers could stay out on field longer which would be ideal for a player like myself who does scenario/rec ball!

I'm lucky to get a 2500 fill from my local field so if I can shoot lower that definitely helps me out.

That's upsetting.... Hopefully your field does all day air. I know my field caps certain fill stations to 2900 psi for their rental okay setups so that way nothing gets over filled.

But yes here is to hoping we get to maximize the air capacity yif tanks and get more air out of fills.

That claim is *highly* questionable, as the volume of air used per shot is dictated by the marker's bolt/valve system and how "deep" a marker can shoot into a bottle is a function of the marker's operating pressure and its HPR's piston area, not the tank reg's setpoint (or really anything to do with the tank reg).

If they're truly claiming that their tank regulator can improve a marker's efficiency, they're either full of crap or have made a groundbreaking discovery.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
