Nitro Duck Mega Reg NEEDS A SPECIALLY MADE CRADLE TO EVEN MOUNT IT
Smart Parts Max-flo CLOSEST TO IT BUT MORE EXPENSIVE
Marker Setup: Dust Silver with Dust Red Accents A4 Fly Stock, Freak Kit, Nitro Duck X-stream tank
Strengths: Adjustable output perfect for fine tuning your marker, consistant, great flow rate, screws into ASA
Weaknesses: Extremely small wobble ....but it is barely even noticable
Review: Ok so I got this tank from nitro duck because they were making up for a messed up order that I placed. Long story that I won't go into. So they send me a 45/4500 X-stream to make up for their mistake. Great customer service by the way. Anyway I am a backplayer and go through alot of paint so I was skeptical of using it on a regular basis but figured I would give it a try. I put the tank on my marker and adjusted the pressure down to 200 psi output just to see if I could get more shots out of it. I made the needed adjustments to my marker to compensate and boy am I glad I did.

Off of a 4000 psi fill I can get 1500 shots!!!! And the consistancy is there too. Over the Chrono: 294,295,294,296...Unbelievable. And the best part is no drop off even when shooting a string of paint. This is by far the best tank that I have used and I have 9 years of paintball experience.

Plus the fact that this tank screws right into your asa makes it easy to change from your existing tank. I will admit that it does have wobbling that is mentioned in the other reviews but it is such a small degree that I have to really concentrate on mine to notice it.

Another thing that I like about it is I can adjust the pressure without having the tank screwed into the asa. The output pressure guage shows you what your operating pressure is at even when off of the marker. You can't do that with the mega reg or the maxflow. When reducing the output pressure you have to push the pin down so it will release the pressure and reset the guage to the right pressure. (this is equivalent to firing your marker after you lower your reg pressure to reduce the speed at the chrono).

I give this tank a 10 out of 10. High flow, ultra consistant, adjustable output, screws into your existing asa...over all a great tank. I dunno how old the review is that gave it a 4 because of it spiking is but I never have that problem and a friend of mine has had his for over a year and he never has the problem either.
Conclusion: I would recomend that you get this tank, especially if you are serious about pushing your marker to the limits of its performance and getting every last shot you possibly can off of a fill.

10 out of 10
