this is gonna sound really stupid, but what does the first number in the size of a tank mean? for example; 45/4500. im gonna get a mini and play woodsball, so i want to hold a lot of air, but i want the smallest, lightest tank i can get so that i can manuever quickly. also, im pretty small (5 feet), so any help would be greatly appreciated. :) wait, is it the length?

so what do you recommend based on what i said. remember, i want the smallest and lightest, but i want it to be able to last long woodsball games. and why would you get a 45/4500 if you could get a 68/4500 that is the same size and weight but will get more shots?

A 68/4500 is bigger than a 45/4500 last time I checked. You could get a 70/4500 peanut, those are tiny and hold massive amounts of shots of course this is all dependent on you're markers air efficiency.

I thought a 45/4500 had less shots because at the same pressure the cubic inches is dependent on shots per fill right? Because isn't a 45 ci tank less space to fit the same amount of air at that pressure?

I think we had a miscommunication lol I was talking about 45/4500 vs 68/4500 while you were talking about 45/4500 vs 45/3000 I was confused for a second lol.

for playing in the woods i would reccomend a 68/4500 on the basis that you will often be expected to play more than one game between fills. a 68 is light enough if you get carbon fiber and holds about 1000+ shots on mini.
