Review: I've got an 88 cubic inch, 4500 psi, 850 psi output iteration of Crossfire's fiber wrapped tanks. I was really excited when it showed up on my front door. It's a pretty big bottle, but at 88ci, that's kinda expected. I use a remote, so it's not like I have to heft it around. I've played with it on-gun before, and it's just slightly too big for comfort, but a drop forward would go a long way to help that out.

When I first got it, there was a tiny leak at the threads of the 7k burst disc. I checked out Crossfire's website and they said that it was no big deal; it happens occasionally on new bottles. Just empty the bottle and put some thread sealer or teflon tape on there. I did, and it's been perfect ever since.

One of my teammates got a PMI 88/4500 at about the same time I did. The first major test of our tanks was at a big scenario game, and he blew the seal on the fill nipple about halfway through. To date, he's been through maybe 3 or 4 nipples (in about 3 months). I don't know if it's the tank or how he fills them, but it's getting understandably annoying.

As for the performance of my Crossfire tank, I couldn't be happier. It's got my velocity to +/- 3 fps on a Tippmann blowback. And even at 25 bps (yes, Tippmanns can cycle that fast... no, its not really recommended... no, I don't play with that ROF, I was only testing stuff out) there's no shootdown that I notice.
Conclusion: This is arguably the best air system out right now. Once I worked out that initial air drip, it's been the perfect propellant system. I'm very happy, and you will be too if you pick one up.
