Hi everyone.
After this winter I've opened the box with my 68/4500 ninja tank and I've saw two big cracks on the bottle.
I've never dropped the tank. But all winter the pressure in the bottle was 2000 psi. Tank was storing in my room.
Release date of the bottle is 02.2011.
What I should to do with this bottle? Is it safely to play with?

Here pics:

That looks pretty serious. I wouldn't use it until a professional looks at it. Use better light and turn your flash off so your pictures are clearer. Then show those to ninjapaintball here on the forums.

Thanks for replay.
Sorry. I'll make pics in better quality tomorrow.

Talk to Ninja about it, but from what I can see, it looks like it is just large cracks in the clear coat. Ninja tanks are well known for this. A crack in the clearcoat is nothing serious, just cosmetic. The clearcoat is just what makes the bottle look nice, and feel smooth. As long as the carbon fiber isnt damaged, and you dont have fraying, it should be fine. I would, however, wait for a second opinion from Ninja. I am just saying this to put your mind at ease a bit.

Thanks, but I still afraid. I don't want to have a bang in a play time or anywhere else...

The tank is safe to use because the cracks are in the outer gel coat layer.

Pm me for an ra# nd send me your name, address and phone number. You send it in and we will replace at no charge.

Hi guys.
My account Reisyd is blocked now due to technical reason.
So I will write from this account.
Last year I created this topic because I had cracks on my Ninja tank.
I communicated with Ray and he sent me new tank. Thanks for that.
I received the brand new tank in summer and put it into the box. I didn't use it.
But this winter I've taken the tank from the box and saw that this tank is cracked too.
Last week I've written the warranty message on ninja official site but I didn't receive any answer yet.
Please, click on photos to view full size.
