I want to start playing with limited ammo I was looking into getting a Ninja 13/3000 tank does someone know how many shots I would be able to get out of that tank? and is it also lighter than a carbon fiber tank? I currently own a 48/3000 and I want to get a tank that I would be able to carry on a pouch on a belt. My 48/3000 is too heavy for a belt which is also why I am looking into getting a new tank. I've been looking everywhere on the internet and cant find anything.

Around 100-120 shots is average for a 13/3000.  It should be quite a bit lighter than a 48/3000.  From ANSGear ."96 pounds!!!! - Perfect Pump Paintball Tank"

Thank you I think I am going to give one a try. I also heard you don't need to rehydro them is this true?

Unless the tank has the exemption code 4L it still needs to be rehydro'd. Period, Thats from the mouth a representative of the Department of Transportation HAZMAT division.

 

Most of the 13/3k tank manufactures are several hundredths of a inch larger so that you have to rehydro them; they are 3AL so every 5 years instead of 3 with an unlimited life..

 

The rule for under 2 inch under 2 feet applies to Co2 tanks because they are under 1800psi  and only to tanks after 1990. They are still under the 4L ruling but nobody checks. 

 

99% of fields don't care to check for 13/3k fills anyways so you needn't worry. Am I promoting not getting it rehydro'd? No, but I'v had 1 of my tanks checked by field staff in 6 years.

 

-------------------------

13/3ks are much lighter than any other tank out there, Carbon fiber or not. The only ones lighter might be  3 or 4 ounce co2 tanks (Not including 1 shots)
