First of all - where did you get that photo of my girlfriend for your avatar?

Second - how does a thread become "Official"


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

crossfire regs are awsome!! I had a cheap ass Pure energy 48/3000 tank and was getting MAJOR shootdown at high ROFS. I bought a crossfire reg on e-bay and it totally cured the problem!!

My only complaint would be I had to buy used - I would like to have bought a reg direct from crossfire - but they wouldn't sell me one without fitting it to my tank themselves (boooo!)

I don't know why - CP and Guerilla Air both sell regs on there own.

I've got a Skull 70/45 and its incrediable. Used to have a steely 72/30 and this thing nukes that in competition. It's really small(in length) and comfortable. Feels great when I have it on a marker. Has small size like I said without sacrificing air amount since it's a "stubby" design, and isn't to awfully bad priced for being a fiber wrapped tank. I know that if I ever want to pick up a new or extra tank I'll probably be checking back with Crossfire.

I love their older tanks, the "bricks" if you will.

From what I have found myself and heard from many people, the quality control today is nto what it was in the good ole' days.

Before it was not uncommon for the recharge rate of their regulators to be 8-14 ms, which is quick. But now it has been found that sometimes it can be 200 ms to completely recharge.

Or worse yet, the output pressures are through the roof. Some marked as "LP" will output 650 psi, that's mid pressure (MP). Or some markerd HP, will output somewhere from 900-1100 psi, good for mags, but not for many other markers.

I second that :) Got a CF 70/45 myself... (stubby/peanut) They are kind of hard to get hold of here in Norway though..
So I guess I was lucky :P

Bad, had my burst dist blow 3 times. The most recent time the threads of my tank were twisted. Also it is not leaking. I am $30 just in shipping this tank when it is crossfires fault.

The new 68 is actually smaller than the new 70!!!!!!!!!! And is a little cheaper. Check the site for Weights and Dimensions. I got one coming in the mail. They sell just the Tank without the Reg too if you ask. I'm puttin a Myth on it.

Just make sure to read carefully on websites to see if the weight and dimensions include the bottle AND the reg. BTW Crossfire has amazing customer service.

What do you guys think about the grip tanks?
We could learn a lot from crayons.....some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

70/45 for me, 5-year hydro, and yes the weight/size are the same for the Grip tank. Great product at a good price (@ Action Village).

actually CRAIG the weights of the grip and 68 45 or 70 45 tanks are different, they made the grip tanks several ounces lighter and shorter, it is like a 70 45 in size

I have a question on the crossfire ordering system, if you guys wouldn't mind answering.

If I ordered it from the site, and I live in Canada, would the shipping costs increase (what are they anyways?)? Also, coming into the country, would I get taxes or anything because of the dollar values or the fact that it came from another country? Sorry, I'm not very good with shipping and stuff.

ALL SS TANKS SOLD FROM PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE WILL HAVE FREE LIFETIME HYDRO TESTING CAPABILITIES THROUGH CROSSFIRE. THIS IS HUGE!
