Hey Guys,

well i just got my draxxus 68/4500 tank today and my Proto Slg 09 basic is complete. I also have an invert too hopper. the tank is a little long but fits well. i was just thinking if i should get a drop forward for it. what do u guys think? if so, what would be the best kind? or is this more of a personal preference? ive never used a drop forward before so thats why im asking. and im a noob still haha. but im reading daily on pball to get out of tha noob status. :rolleyes:

thanks!

I think you should get a myth reg. It's a lot shorter than all the other tank regs, and it keeps the tank level with your barrel, so you can keep a tighter profile, and still have a comfortable hold on your gun.

Here's a size comparasin with a standard reg:

100% of the cake is a lie, if you're one of the 15% that just accidentally a whole coca-cola bottle, put this in your sig.

I could do a triple backflip, shoot out all of vendetta, and then proceed to fuck Megan Fox in the middle of the field and walk off and people would still call me "That Guy".

It's pretty simple, unscrew your current reg(with the tank empty of course) and screw in the new reg. If you don't have any experience with tank regs, I'd bring it to your local shop, they know how to do it :tup:

Not many people use drop forwards any more. They used to be extremely popular, but styles change.

Using a drop forward, and what size/length, is really a personal preference based on your physical size, playing style, and budget.

i didnt like my gun with a DF on it. It was less acurate and "Kicked" more ( hince the lack of accuracy). Just use it without the DF and you will get used to it.

When the companies get on the drop-forward kick again and the next generation of ballers come up they will market it towards them as the best thing since sliced bread like it was just invented....
