i would recommend a Ninja or Guerrilla air tank over these for a few reasons
quality: ninja and Guerrilla air make the highest quality tanks and regs hands down
both these tanks will also hold value a lot better

I would get the ANSgear tanks http://www.ansgear.c...anks_s/3614.htm

They're pretty good tanks and just a couple dollars more also you have a choice between regulators when you buy one.

I personally own one and it very good tank

also you have a choice between regulators when you buy one.

 

Remember you pay for customer service and you only have the option to upgrade to a crossfire reg.

If you get one I highly recommend getting a different regulator on it, my friend had bought one and after about 2 months the regulator blew out on him

You can't beat Ninja tanks. Quality, performance, customer service. They just cannot be beaten. If you're going to spend the money on a new tank, get yourself something of quality, that will last you a long time, and is made in America.

I have to echo everyone else. Ninja is the only way to go. Even if you just buy a Ninja reg. Their customer service is the best in the business and 100% Made in America near Chicago, IL.

I am going to buck the trend here.

 

Everyone is saying "ninja" "ninja" "ninja" when nine times out of ten it makes zero difference. So long as the regulator does not break on you, and tank regulators hardly EVER go down, you're fine. Even an inconsistent tank regulator (which is extremely rare these days) is not a problem since practically every marker you buy has its own regulator.

 

The big secret here is that most people who post on this forums that play a lot are sponsored. I used to be sponsored by Ninja too. They definitely make the best product, but you'll never know it. I've owned several different tanks and not a one has gone down on me. My Draxxus tank is still fine. Really, an 68/4500 HPA tank with a 5 year hydro is a 68/4500 HPA tank with a 5 year hydro. The rest is not worth a 50% cost increase to get a ninja.

 

Bottomline: as long as it's not a piece of shit (and I can't think of a piece of shit tank that's available nowadays), the extra money spent will not yield you any gain. I would go for the cheapest 68/4500 you can find. Don't forget to factor in born dates (when the tank was made which determines when it will need to be re-tested for certification).

 

I would go for the HK brand tank on sale. 40% savings is 40% savings.

But, Ninja is all black... and it has the added bonus of their CS, and is user serviceable/adjustable.

Umm their almost all user serviceable? Who cares about color when chances are your going to put some kind of tank cover on it anyway? Besides the bottles are all made by the same 3 or 4 companies anyway, and have to meet the exact same federal criteria. The only difference truly is the reg, and for 95% of players the GAS tanks are perfect for what they need, and IMO ninja's aren't worth the extra money, just a bunch of hype.

So their hydro will go out? Otherwise I can think of no reason for them to be deemed unsafe then, but not now.

because it is unsafe? derp i mean i can think of some reasons. one being a recall on a bad run, or that their regs have some sort of issue, or that the wall thickness or some other sort of safety requirement is not fully met or hardly met yet for safety reasons will deem the tanks unsafe.

DERP? Pretty sure I said i'm not sure why they would wait, as in if the tanks are unsafe wouldn't you want to declare that IMMEDIATELY and not wait a year?

Because they aren't made by Ninja.

actually i found out the real reason. their permits to make tanks expires in oct 2014. they just have to renew the permit thats it.
