Review: I went into the store looking for a new tank and possibly a new mask. I looked at the DXS Peanut tank, and i thought it was light. Then the guy showed me this Guerrilla Air tank. It was huge compared to the DXS, but it was so much lighter, I couldn't believe it. The only one lighter was the CP, and i've had bad experiences with those guys, so I decided it was worth a shot.

I picked one of these up from Paintball Doctor in Plano a few days ago (thanks!!) and i just played with it last Saturday. I was going from a huge aluminum tank (like 5 pounds) to one of these. I bought an NXE cover for this baby, since i play snake, i don't want it cracking or anything.

Well... i filled it up, screwed it in, loaded up, and hit the field for a hyperball game with a few friends. We're not playing tourney style or anything, but we still play pretty hard when we're not actually playing in a tournament. While I was standing at the deadbox, waiting for the ref's go, i really noticed "I must have forgot to put paint in! Oh ****!" so then i looked down.... my hopper was full. I realized I must have forgotten to fill up, then... no... it was just how light my PMR was with this tank.

"3...2...1... go go go!" I sprinted towards the snake and supermanned, slamming my brand new tank against the ground. Thanks to the cover, my tank was perfectly fine and shooting good. Snapshooting was much easier due to the reduced weight, and my profile was smaller due to the reduced size.

A few games later... yes, a few. A game is, on average, a hopper and a pod... so, let's say I played four games... that's around 350 balls, i'd say. 350 x 4... 1400 shots. Pretty damn good.

The bad..
Price.

I payed 200 bucks for this, plus like a 25 dollar cover. 225 for a tank. Thankfully, this was a gift, so I only had to pay half, but if you're buying a completely new setup, i could see this adding up.
Conclusion: Buy it if you have the cash. Great, light tank.

9, because nothing is perfect.
