Review: Bought this tank from my local shop (nearest anyways). Truthfully, I haven't had much experience with HPA, and I only selected the tank 'cause of the cool sticker on the side. I had read numerous reviews on different tanks beforehand, and I was a little worried about leakage, because I live on a remote military post, and when I go into town for fills, I would be storing my tank for up to two weeks at a time (pressurized). I know that most tanks are actually manufactured by a only few companies, and the companies that sold them for paintball use were only outfitting them with the regulators and valve assemblies. For me, this step is actually the key to quality control, and will determine the tank's performance, and it's reliability. My shop gave me somewhat of a hot fill, and by the time I got it home, it was down to 4100psi. Kinda worried, but over the course of one week, it was stable, and did not leak a bit! Since then, I have used and refilled it about a dozen times, and it has yet to leak. The longest I have stored it pressurized was 17 days, and it held air like a champ. The preset of 800 is very consistent, and I experience no shootdown. I'm not sure if it's my hybrid reg's performance, but when I was running the stock reg on my ion, it was fairly consistent as well. The tank did feel a little heavier than some of the other ones of comparable size, but like I said before, I dont have that much experience with HPA so what do I know? I have had so many initial quality control issues with many of my paintball purchases (especially my ION-but I still love it very much) :) , that I was almost expecting some sort of defect from this purchase, but WGP has re-instilled my faith in knowing there are well constucted, built-to-last, precision products out there in the world of paintball.
Conclusion: Worth every cent. Airtight!
