smartparts ion pro, spyder e99 avant
dye throttle 91/4500
Large tank (91ci)
Good price $225
Doesn't have loc tight on it (expalained in body)
I got this tank today and i thought it was a good tank cause its dye.But! After 4 hours of use i took of my ion and put on my e99 to test it worked great.until i took of and the regulator came off the tank. took back to store and got loc tight on it to seal the tank.
I'll update this next time i test it to see if it works.
I just tested it again on my e99 and it works great now the tank and regulater are sealed now.
update 1/15/06 broke again peace of junk my opinion
update 1/16/06 dye has given me another tank and is checkin out my old one. It might of just been a dud but ill change my oppion when the tank stays in 1 piece!
I recommend this tank for any gun that can use nitrogen. But get loc tight on it when u buy it or before your next fill!
3 out of 10

ok you say its only problem is that it doesn't have a loc-tite and you give it a 3? That makes zero sense, if you think it is priced well, does what it says it does and your overall satisfied, then you should have given it a 7 at least, not a 3.
I believe the tank uses set screws to hold the reg in place. I have had my Dye stubby for about a year and once these did become lose. Tightening them with an allen key fixed it easily. If the act of putting locktite on it is laborous enough to give the review a 3, then so be it. I suggest though that you consider changing your mind. I am sorry that Dye sold what has been described as a dud, but I am glad they made good on it.
What kind of lictite did you use? Red and Blue are a no no for tanks cuz if you ever want to change the regulator you can because it's being held in place. I had a crossfire tank once and some jerk at crossfire put red loc tite on it and the threads tore off when I was changing to a myth reg, and then my other tank has blue loc tite and it took over an hour and a pot of boiling water to remove the reg.
The pressure in the tank is almost always enough to keep the reg in place, loc tite if just a bad idea for a tank
