Products Used:
Crossfire Reg Tanks and other presets
Marker Setup: 2 DM4's one red to black and one cobolt to black, one with shocktech mini drop and the other with a mini stumpy, 71 throttle and 70 peanut throttle, Evo II "egg" with z-board, and Empire Reloader B, Evil Pipe Barrel System
Strengths: This has a very consistent output pressure
Weaknesses: comes with a crappy tank o-ring
Review: The Throttle is a great preset air system and has very consistent pressure i used to have some spikes on my crossfire reg.I didn't like how the crossfire reg was like a huge beast and wouldn't fit well in most mini drops. The throttle fits perfectly in every drop i've seen it screwed into so far (which have been CP and Shocktech). I like the 71 Throttle so much that i bought a peanut Throttle but what was Dye thinking with that tank o-ring it is like the cheapest rubber o-ring in the world my original throttle it lasted less than one practice. I swaped it for a urethane one and my Throttles been and it works great. I would definitely say Dye has there stuff together and has created an awesome preset compared to a lot of tanks out there i don't think i would ever want another crossfire tank. You might want to look into a centerflag doolie if your guns input pressure optimum is lower than the preset (most timmies) this will give you a slight improvement in accuracy. If they fixed the tank o-ring i would be much happier though but considering it's a like a minor fix anyway buy yourself some urethane tank o-rings and get a Throttle you won't be disappointed.
Conclusion: I would reccomend this to anyone that needs a preset air system but i would be sure to warn them about that cheap o-ring. Other than that the Throttle rocks.
9 out of 10

Could you measure the circumfrence/diameter of the peanut? I'm trying to figure out if the drop I'm looking at (pathogen on/off) is big enough to accomidate this tank.

i have a 71ci 4500psi Dye tank..... and im wondering WHERE THE HELL AM I GOING TO FIND A TANK COVER THAT IS GOING TO FIT!? they dont have 71ci tank covers.... that do how ever hav 68ci and 88ci U think a 68ci would fit on a 71ci?

On the dye website the rhino bottle cover is listed as available in a 68/71 ci size, so i would bet that any other 68 cover would fit it.

I've read the recharge was bad on the Dye Throttle. Has anyone experienced any problems with this?

I cannot tell whether that it will fit with the drop. I contacted dye and here are the dimensions for the peanut 70ci: 11" long 5" wide and it weighs 2.64 lbs. Hope it helps.
