- it balances the gun weight out, as where with steelie's more of the weight tends to be towards the back of the marker
- the back of carbon fibre tanks (68/4500's and 48/4500's etc.) are rounded therefore they are much more comfortable to shoulder (sounds stupid but it does make a real difference)
- they have a higher capacity then steelie's, this of course depends which sizes you are comparing... although if what you currently have is a 48/3000 then almost every carbon fibre tanks regardless of the size will hold more since they hold 4500 psi instead of just 3000 psi.

I own a 50/45 and I love it! I started with a 48/3000 and moved up to my cf tank! Its considerably lighter and hold more air! Definitely worth it if you want to get more competitive in paintball.
I was thinking about getting a 48/45 or a 50/45, do you guys have any recommendations? (I definitely want a small tank).

Alright, so I should look past the price tag for the ninja tank?
good products, but the gains dont justify the cost to me.
you can get other tanks for $115 new. i've never once needed to have my regulator serviced or felt the need to adjust the pressures, so for me, ninja tanks arent worth it.
