Supp pew pew

So, I have seen quite a few boards about this topic.. but its always; "Either work, HP will be fine".

 

So yes I know hp will be fine, but if I took the shims out of the Ninja Reg on my 68/45 Crossfire, will I see any advantages? Does this make the tank any safer? Actual efficiency boost? 

 

Sub topic; lets say... after a recent incident involving over pressure fill.. and a sudden saftey valve pop.. I picked up a mild fear of air tanks. Any stats, stories, or suggestions for getting the f#ck over it?

 

Alright.. so that last ones actually a really big reason for posting this. Help me Greg Hast-en-Obi, you're my only hope.

Tank output pressure will not matter at all on an Axe other than that you shouldnt use an SHP reg.

There isn't much we can say about the tank incident. Nothing we post will change the fact you're running around with 4,500 psi in your armpit. The best I can say is that the burst disk did exactly what it was made for and vented the over pressure. Did you find out why it failed? A 4.5k tank has a 7k burst disk and a 3k after the reg, which one blew? That'll help point out the issue. Inspect your tank and reg often. I have to remind customers of the danger of HPA tanks, they're no joke.

The only tank accidents Ive heard about have been due to GROSS negligence. Dont out oil in your fill nipple and youll be fine.

Pretty sure the manual actually recommends LP, but ilke others have said using HP is perfectly fine.  I used HP output the entirety of the time I owned my Axe and never had an issue.  It generally just comes down to more oring maintenence when using HP.
