Review: Okay so i'm from Canada and i purchase this tank from Category 5 paintball in the United States.

I purchased it January 2005 and won the bid at an extremely higher price then i should.
After 4 months of not recieving anything from category 5 i call them up a few times and waste money on long distance. They tell me they will start tracking the item through USPS. I call back and they tell me it's lost so i must pay for shipping again to get it reshipped via UPS. I do the deed and pay the reship fee. This time i recieve it within a week.

THE TANK i recieved was OLD!! It said that it was made 9/02. It is now 2005. Now i must re-hyrdo the tank and spend another 45 dollars CAD. In total i spent $150 CAD for an aluminum tank that i needed back in January.

The tank compares with the Steel PE ones and the C5 tank weighs as much as my PE 68/3000 psi fiber wrapped tank. Thats about it the product is okay, recharge is okay too.
Conclusion: Don't buy it, buy the Pure Energy, crossfire, mac dev, or any other big company steel or aluminum tanks.
As for performace, the Steel PE ones have a better regulator on them.

This guy is absolutely full of it. Everything he has said is complete BS. It is impossible for this tank to have been manufactured in 2002 since we didn't even start buying these tanks until 2004. What an a**hole. A guy looking to scam free stuff and we called him on it.

If you truly are from Category 5 that is a lousy way to treat a customer, even if he is trying to scam free stuff. I was looking to buy from you, but not anymore, a company that doesn't treat its customers like gold, even the bad ones, aren't worth buying from

I have to disagree. I am the manager of a proshop that sells the Cat5 tanks and they have out performed every other reg manufacturer on reliability. We even quit carrying CP tanks because they couldnt get us a batch of tanks that didnt blow rupture disks constantly. The Cat5 tanks are easy to maintain and are a good price. If your wanting MacDev quality, pay the MacDev price otherwise the Cat5 tank really is the best tank for the money.
