Light weight
Weaknesses: Consistency
Review: OK one word alone could sum up the poor performance of this tank, SUCKS. Alright the way i got this tank was that i heard that they were the best, that they were better that Crossfire! So i find one, i buy one, and one week later, that tank was sold on E-bay and the money from that i buy my 3rd Crossfire. I was so frustrated with the performance of the Dye tank i almost wanted to through it into a fire-pit rather than let someone else get this bad quality of a tank. (Forgive me Crossfire for i have questioned your performance)
Conclusion: In the end i was very disappointed. i have an auto cock and on the crono graph it was like 304, 290, 295, 285, 278. i'm serious it kept dropping every shot and sometimes it would go to were i wanted it. either way, it's just a bad tank.
1 out of 10

ok cockers run between 200-400psi, it says for the dye tank that you need an inline reg if your runnning a lp, that coulda been your problem, ignorance is the other half

wow you have any auto cock hows that working for ya, you probably dont even have the tank.

yea it probably sucks because your using a stabilizer w/ nitro, I hear thats a no-no. They were designed w/ co2 in mind and work with n2, just not very conistently...

u have to be the biggest nooooob ive seen, u cant use a stabilizer, stabilizers are for c02, are we using co2, no!, we're using one of the best hpa systems out there. i use a cp reg with my throttle, and i give it a 10/10

how come you are buying your 3rd crossfire tank. You didnt even give the dye tank a good chance. and if you bought your 3rd crossfire why not just buy a 2nd dye tank. and useing a stabilizer, you freaken noob.

Dude what were you thinking useing a stabilizer(what a newb!!) . I happen to own one of these tanks and it's the best I have ever had!

The inconsistency you're talking about is most likely due to poor marker-tuning (of course I could be mistaken). But everyone always wants to blame their bottle-reg for inconsistency and shootdown, when this is just not the case.

My god an auto cock dont tell my wife she'll want one too.
You cant make that many mistakes then tell on yourself in your review and not expect to be stamped as a noob and thus ribbed for it . 1. stabilizer is for co2 2. you made no mention of talking to an air smith or anyone who may have known about tanks. A good air smith can make a huge difference in your experiences i have a dye tank and ill never go to another.

Products shod never be given 1, 2, or even a 3, products that deserve these ratings are ones that don't even work and you have tried every thing possible to fix it (hint: air smith, local proshop, field, etc). To get the best use out of a compressed air tank is by using a regulator made for compressed air (example: a dye hyper2 inline regulater are some of the best out there).

You did not give detailed enough reasons why it is a bad tank. All you said was that the chrono numbers kept dropping, which could be a problem with many many MANY other things in your gun. You spent the whole review body just talking about how u hated the tank, WITHOUT BACKING UP ANY OF YOUR INFO.

I happen to have one of these tanks and it works perfectly. It has great concistency and
has never leaked on me.

If the tank is as bad as you say it is you would have a lot more reasons than shoot-down. With an autococker... anything can happen. It all depends on the gun and the regulators. Most likely, your gun was poorly maintaned and you blame your tank.
