I recently got to finally play with my 68/4500 and I found the weight comparible to the 20oz CO2 I was playing with before. Maybe it's a big difference for people used to lightweight speedball markers, but having a 98C and a G-1 it wasn't trouble to carry it around at all(and it was filled to a full 4500).

 

For hard numbers though the only thing I could find was this:

It depends on the tank and if it is Carbon fiber or not. Also, tank weight should not be an issue.

All 4500 psi tanks are carbon fiber... As in tank weight, ehh it really depends on your style of play and the rest of your setup to determine whether or not the weight of the tank matters

Oookay...

 

Length is far more important than weight.  A 68 will fit just about anyone or you'll at least grow into it in a year or two.

Tanks weight does not matter. I run just as fast with a 50/4500 as a 68/4500.

I use 68/4500s I want a 77/4500 mainly because I have Gorillia arms and my SL94 is already light enough to make up for the difference.

 

I also really liked the smaller 45/45 tanks those are really nice when you want to have a very nimble gun.

Do you really think a couple ounces of weight (supported by your shoulder mind you) will make any difference?

it doesn't matter which weighs more, a few ounces is irrelevant. just get the one which feels more comfortable, it will improve your game more than a slightly lighter tank.
