Very cheap (price)
Customer service (yes, surprising isn't it?)
Leaked out of the box
Well, I got this because I really don't need a large HPA tank since my field offers free refills for members. Why spend the money when you can save it and just go to the fill station a little more often?
The tank is a little heavy, about 4 pounds (at least that's what it said on the UPS sticker) but I use a remote so therefore it doesn't really affect me.
When I first got it, I wasn't impressed or disappointed. It's just a tank anyways. First day going at the field to get it field out, I heard a little hissing noise. The fill nipple had a leak.
Took it to the pro-shop and the guy looked at the fill nipple, took it out and replaced the seal (he said it was on too tight or something) So after replacing the fill nipple, I take it to the fill station again and what do you know, another leak. This time is was comming from the hex screws holding the top part of the tank attached to the tank.
So, I went home and emailed them saying my tank had a leak. Next day, they replied to me and gave me a number and told me to call them to customer support. I live in canada so calling to the states would have been a long distance call and would have costed me something. So they send me very detailed instructions on how to fix this. All I had to do was pop-it open and clean the o-rings. Just for that, they wrote instructions about half a page long because they really wanted to make sure I understood properly how to fix it and why the problem occured. After doing so, everything worked fine and my tank is leak free.
I overall, I'm statisfied with the product. I don't really need an HPA tank because I rarelly ever do any rapid fire but I got it for the price of a 20 oz Co2 bottle (about 60$ CND) with S&H included. It did take a bit of work out of the box but I prefer it like that, if a problem ever occurs now I'll know how to fix it :) O and for those who think that the tank was made in 9/02, you're wrong. The date the tank was made is written at the top of the tank where is says CLIFF DIV ## (wierd L in a C symbol) ## that's the when the tank was made. Or else everybody would have a tank made back in 9/02, doesn't make much sence now does it? :P I give it an 8 out of 10 because the shipping was very long.
8 out of 10
