Products Used:
Several. crossfire, pmi, max flo, exc.
Marker Setup: ICD B2k4, CP hp reg, AKA scm3 lp reg, CP 48/45 hp tank, Blue Forks T2 tray-less grip frame, lightened hammer, vapor valve, ccm no-pro, lucky un1tec kit, ccm carbon fiber barrel kit, blue led, several home mods, cant think of anything else.
Strengths: Light weight (only 1.99 lb), great customer service, good looking, good feeling.
Weaknesses: A little pricey, small leak around gauge when new, nothing major.
Review: Picked up a 48/4500 hp at Cup, as well as a new rail and on/off asa to go with it. I have to say that I have been very pleased with it so far. I love the size and it is very light. The rail and no/off are wonderful as well.

I went and played with the tank the other day and it performed very well. I expect that the reg will break in and get better after few more fills but it was still very very good.

the only problem I have had is, the next day I noticed that the pressure in the tank had dropped from 4200psi to 3000psi, so I emailed cp and received a reply in about 30 minutes! the solution was to take off the gauge and put a little Teflon tape or blue loctite to seal it up. easy fix (the leak was only noticeable after 24 hours, that's how slow it was, but a little soapy water revealed it right away).

I decided to take the reg apart to see if i could adjust the position of the fill nipple. once apart the reg appears to use the exact same design as CP's other regs, anyway i was able to reposition the fill nipple straight up. now it wont be poking me in the wrist when i play.

i have an NXe 45 tank cover on it, and it is a little long, so i did a little sewing on it and now it fits very well. i played all day with it in sand and no sand got inside the tank cover. however if and when a company comes out with a cover specifically for this tank i will pick one up.

the graphics on the tank are very nice and show the great quality of the product, however they will always be covered by my cover so a bit of a waist imo, but i still want to take the cover off and look at it every once in a while so maybe not that big of a waist after all.

i would suggest that you find a store that has this tank and try it on your setup to make sure that it is not to small for you. i could see that it could easily be to small for someone with long arms, or anyone for that matter; but definitely give it a try i think you will be pleased, as i am.
Conclusion: this is a great tank from a company with a great reputation and great customer service. give it a try and i doubt you will be disappointed.

i will give it a 7. mostly because 10's are given out way to much on here and 5 is average. IMO this tank is above average, but price is a little high ($225 at cup) but customer service is top notch. definitely worth a look.

great review. Finally someone can give an honest rating not an automatic 10.
