I would get a little smaller bore barrel. That's about the same as the stock pmr barrel. A .687 or .689 is still a comfortable overbore for most paint.

I would suggest a Halo instead of the V-Max.

Also Ninja HPA tanks/regs are the best in the business.

I'd also skip the reballs. I have a pod of them sitting in my garage and I never used them except for when I first bought them.

Instead of the Vmax get a halo
instead of the GA tank get crossfire or ninja
get a .685 bore on your barrel
you don't need the reballs unless you tech alot og paintball guns or have your own private field

Hockey tape can do the exact same thing as a tank cover. Save a few bucks.

No it wont. It will replace a tank butt/grip, but will not actually protect the tank.

With that said, just use hockey/grip tape until you can afford an Exalt tank cover.

the rubber ones that only cover half of the tank is the same shit as hockey tape. If he is going to invest in a tank cover a FULL tank cover is the way to go.

No you get the rubber ones. Do you really think that some piece of cloth will make any difference in protecting a tank strong enough to hold 4500psi? That's like wrapping a piece of cloth around a tire because it'll "protect it more". The rubber things are not the same as hockey tape. Actually, its a lot like rubber wristbands. At this point, just get what holds the tank in place better. The cloth ones suck for the sole purpose that they slip around the tank a ton and don't contribute to gripping to your shoulder. That's why you get the Exalt ones. They secure the tank so it doesn't slip around and smack you on the nose part of your mask every time you raise your marker.

The Exalt tank covers ARE a full cover. The tank butts/grips just cover the back. The purpose is to prevent scratches on the bottom when you dive.

instead of the gorilla tank get a ninja tank, get a smaller bore, donīt get a tank cover, make sure the v-max speed feed is the HK Army speedfeed. Also, donīt pay attention to the people who say that the V-Max isnīt worth it. Itīs never done less than 18 BPS for me and I donīt have the Pinokio Prop (which you can get for free)

No one is saying that grip tape offers protection, they are saying that the only good full tank covers are the Exalt ones.

Since when did some bit of fabric protect a High Pressured Air tank capable of handling 3000-4500 psi? Car tires don't even go close to this, and you don't see people putting a Valken cover on theirs now do you? So why not just go with something that actually helps you, like grip tape?

So cloth will prevent that huh?
Or do you suggest we wrap ours with an extra layers of steel just in case?

I say tank covers are good because they prevent tank scratches, which can eventually lead to further damage.

um are you stupid? All I was saying was a fucking rubber butt for your tank doesn't do shhit in protecting your tank, its basically for grip/tack and grip tape would do just fine.
