I recently purchased an A-5 with a response trigger. Need advice on which tank to purchase to fully utilize the RT and its benefits. Specifically for this gun only.

A ninja tank with the SHP regulator.

I would not get a SHP tank because they are hard to sell and they are not recommended to use on most other markers.

but he said for that gun specifically.

If you do want to use this tank for other guns down the road, a standard ninja reg with the adjustable setting to the highest output (850psi i believe).

When in doubt, go with the 68/4500. It's widely regarded as the go-to tank size. It's good for averaged height players (5'8"-5'11") for a shorter player, a 45/4500 may be more ideal. For a younger player or female player, or those who like a really tight setup, a 50/4500 may be another to consider. And for our taller friends or players with long arms, a 90/4500 is nice.

I would go 68/4500, if you get a 3000 psi tank you'll run out of air pretty fast if you're on the trigger a lot.

thank you everyone who has answered thus far. I am 6ft so i believe the 68/4500 seemingly would be ideal size for me.

Ninja tank with the regulator? Would the consensus be that is the best for my setup? From reading online i see ninja and i believe guerrilla are the two most popular choices.

Does anyone have a strong case for or against on either? And is the regulator a necessity for my gun?

Ninja is the best. They have a user serviceable regulator and the output pressure can be adjusted.

thank you, looks like i will be going with a 68/4500 ninja.

Would ordering directly from the website be my best/only option?
