Review: I've got a friend who has one of these, and I just got mine in the mail.

To start off, the DXS and CP 48's are EXACTLY the same TANK. The reg is what makes the difference. I don't know who actually makes the DXS reg, but I've heard it's a rebranded PMI. Recharge rate is really good. I've got a cyborg, and setting it in uncapped ramping mode, there was no drop off, so you should be set. If it doesn't drop off from a cyborg, it won't drop off.

The tank itself isn't much bigger than a softball, and like most "fiber" tanks, is actually aluminum wrapped in fiber. It's very light, and feels very sturdy.

I got mine off of ansgear (X-mas special) for $140. You can't beat that, and regardless, even at a full price of 180, it's still a better deal than the CP. You can also buy a myth reg as I did for $30 (also off ansgear), and end up with the smallest tank/reg combo out there. The myth reg stands only 3/4" off the tank, so needless to say, the two were made for each other.

No drop forwards required.
Conclusion: In my opinion, this tank shines. With an entire marker setup, it takes off weight from the back, and makes it feel like the weight's in the marker, instead of in the tank. Most people hold their markers with one hand, and notice that it tips backwards (without a drop forward). Again... in my opinion, this tank will help remove the need for a drop forward as it's so light. I can't give it a 10, because I believe the reg isn't top quality, however, it's only shortcomings are from the weight/length of the reg, but not the performance. If you hurry before xmas, you can have a myth reg and tiny tank off ansgear for $170 shipped, which is still 35 bucks cheaper, smaller, and lighter than the CP equivilant.

Ya you're right the DXS 48's are the same as CP's. The DXS regs are actually made by DXS themselves. If you compare PMI regs against DXS regs they're constructed differently.
