It's an okay choice. You'll only get around 500 shots from a 48/3000 psi tank. The material it's made from is aluminum so it's actually heavier than a 68/4500, since they're made from carbon fiber. Some good advice is to buy a 68/4500 used. If your field has free air and you don't mind refilling as much, then a 48/3000 would be good for you. If you can afford a used 68/4500 then I would suggest you purchase it. Pros being its lighter and doubles the amount of shots you can take.

If you can at all manage to get a carbon fiber tank, you will be glad you did. You will get more shots and less weight.

I'd just use rental HPA until you have the money to get a 4500 tank.

I'd push away from this, it's nice to have your own gear. Also from personal experience I've never been to a field that rents just tanks, every one I've been to makes you rent the whole setup

My field rents just tanks or just electric hoppers.

Save up and buy a carbon fiber tank. You will be glad you did. I own a 48 3000 and hate it. It feels like it ways 3x as much as my gun does (it doesnt). It completely weighs down my gun.  I'm just about to buy a carbon fiber tank. Also, look into what size tank is best for you. Look at this. http://www.youtube.c...h?v=0kSQXW7Hc3I


If your under 18 and pay for your own gear put this in your sig
