Review: I would like to start off by saying that this review is for the Centerflag 68/4500 tank with a 420 regulator.

Prior to owning my Centerflag tank I had a Nitro Duck 68/3000. My Nitro Duck tank worked flawlessly, but I needed something that could hold more air. Like any good consumer I looked into different tanks such as: Crossfire, Centerflag, Nitro Duck, Pure Energy and Mac Dev '05 Legion Air. At first I wanted a Crossfire tank because of their excellent reputation and reliability. However, there was one problem. Crossfire tanks tend to be very pricey and being on a fixed income that simply was not an option.

Therefor, I was forced to look at other options. I happened across an Ebay seller auctioning these tanks off for $150 brand new. I read the reviews on PBR and it sounded like an all round good tank. Two weeks later it arrived at my front door.

The Nitro Duck tank I owned before my Centerflag tank leaked out of the gauge and fill nipple right from the factory. I figured that this would also be a problem with the Centerflag tank so I was prepared! With plumber's tape in hand I got my tank filled to see if there were any leaks from the factory. Sure enough, it leaked from the gauge and fill nipple just as my Nitro Duck tank had. I bled the tank off, removed the gauge, fill nipple and mended the leak with a little plumber's tape. Problem solved!

To test the recharge I threw it on my Ion and fired away. The tank kept up with my Ion just fine and I did not notice and shoot down. Now for the crono. Over the crono I was only getting a +/- 5 FPS. Not too bad, not too bad at all. I then put the Centerflag tank on my Proto to really test the recharge. I shoot it at an easy 20-22 BPS, no shoot down what so ever and my gun wasn't starving for air!
Conclusion: All in all the Centerflag is an excellent tank for the price and you will NOT be disappointed! It is a great alternative to the spendy Crossfire and it works just as well. I would recommend this tank to anyone who wants to save money and not sacrifice performance.
