Review: I have had my Nitro Duck 68/3000 tank for about 8 months now and I love it! Some people will give it crappy reviews and and a bad reputation.........don't listen to them. Alright, now the review portion.


WEIGHT:

It is a very lightweight tank being fiber wrapped instead of steel, there is a NOTICEABLE difference. I held my friends tank (the exact same one only steel) and mine was so much lighter! Would you rather lug around a heavy, cumbersome steel tank or a lightweight, fiber wrapped tank? I think it goes without saying.


AIR EFFICIENTCY:

I own a WGP Orracle and I get about 800-850 shots off with it (pretty good). Keep in mind that its only a 3000 psi. tank compared to a 4500 or above psi. tank.


PRICE:

The Nitro Duck tank also goes for a very reasonable price-$150.00. You can spend a lot more on tanks that aren't necessarily as good.

CUSTOMER SERVICE:

Many will tell you that Nitro Duck has bad customer service. It does not. I had some minor problems with mine and they helped me fix it over the phone! The man was helpful, courteous, and knowledgeable.


QUALITY CONTROL:

My Nitro Duck tank had a few "flaws" due to poor quality control. My tank was leaking at such a fast rate I had no idea what was going on. I could hear it but I couldn't find it! That bugged the heck out of me. So we put it under some water as the customer support guy had told us to do. Bingo! The air had been leaking out of the gauge because it hadn't been properly screwed in. So with a little plumber's tape we were back in business!


ADVANTAGES OF COMPRESSED AIR:

It shoots cleaner, won't freeze up your gun on cold days, more consistent, and cheaper to fill than Co2.
Conclusion: I give it a 9 because of the leak. Some might give it less because of this but, with a quick and easy fix I feel it deserves a 9. If this problem had not occured I would have given it a 10. The Nitro Duck tank is an excellant tank for the money and would recommend it to anyone.
Oh yeah, did I mention that Rocky Knuth (team captain of the Naughty Dogs) said that it was a good tank? Well he did say it, right in front of my eyes! Buy this tank and you will not regret it!

Do you know if you have to put a low presure kit on Tippmann 98 Custom to use compresed air.
