Review: Well, I decided to explore a new company to its fullest. Having already purchased a Pulse (which is, hands down, the best loader on the planet). Since I recently sold my Crossfire to a willing buyer after the hydro expired, I needed to purchase a new tank. The DXS caught my eye. It was cheap. It looked solid.

Whenever the tank arrived, I first noticed its weight. The fiber-wrapped models are always light, but this thing was even lighter than my Crossfire. The thing looks sexy too, so even if you can't find a good tank cover (I recommend the NXE Dynasty cover), play without. It certainly looks better than the CenterFlag or Crossfire models, and it has a comparable recharge rate. I was somehow able to achieve 26.3 BPS, pausing only once halfway through my loader, and the shots didn't even drop off.

I understand that the regulator for the Crossfire may have a slight advantage, but honestly, the only stigma I could ever associate with this tank is the lack of popularity. At about $80 cheaper than the Crossfire and most definitely lighter, you have to drive a hard wagon if you ignore this product.
Conclusion: Whether you need a backup tank or you just want to look spiffy, the DXS line of systems (68/4500 pref.) is not a system you can ignore easily. It's cheap. It's fast. And it's really light.
