Review: I ordered this tank last February I believe. I saw them on EBay for incredibly cheap (like 50 bucks American) and I figured they were worth a try. I ended up buying a tank from their site directly and I think shipping and everything it was like 60-70 bucks Canadian. Thatís a great price for a HPA tank around here. Out of the box it looked great, I like the black reg, I find the metallic color ones look kind of crappy. Also the reg is not long and it doesnít have an ugly huge gauge like some of the other manufacturers. Since Iíve been using this tank Iíve found my consistency on both my Bone Daddy and my R6 have been pretty good +/-5 FPS and even when I rail on my R6 I donít notice any drop off.

Unfortunately right out of the box this tank had a problem. I got it filled and then put it on a shelf at home getting ready for a game the next day. In the middle of the night I heard ď*BLAM* Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.Ē I almost died of a heart attack at that point so thatís a negative as well but anyway. Turns out one of the orings in the regulator was too big and half of it actually blew out the side of the reg. I contacted C5 (through their website and email) about it but they just ignored me. So I took the tank out to a local place that recertifies fire extinguishers and they found out the problem right away and replaced the o-ring. After that I didnít have any problems with the tank and have used it in a few games since and it has been great. The weight and size are pretty much what I thought they would be and my setup is pretty light otherwise.
Conclusion: If I had it all to do all over again I wouldíve bought a crossfire tank. Could still get one for a hair under 100 and Iím sure itíd turn out a lot better. All the same for the price the Concussion does the job and if I add an inline regulator to my current setup I think Iíll probably have very good consistency and in the end thatís what itís all about. However, products should not fail out of the box and if they do fail their customer support should be bending over backwards not to lose your business. C5 obviously doesnít put my effort towards quality or support and to me thatís a pretty big deal. Iíll give the tank a rating of 7 and I think Iím being pretty generous in that.
Rating:
7 out of 10
