Review: I bought this tank in december and at first I loved it like most people do. But as time has gone on I have started to feel different. At first I didnt notice that it even had a leak because I play maybe once a month and dont have much of a memory of if I filled it before I left the field or if I may have dry fired it and not remembered. Anyway let alone that it is not as light as the crossfire wich I can deal with because it's still very light. I recently noticed that it has a slow leak. Before leaving the field last week I filled both my tanks and have not dry fired with either of them. It was filled when I left. Monday I took out my tank to shoot some v balls and noticed the tank was down to 2500 and thought maybe I had forgotten that I shot it so I ended up not using it so I could monitor it and see if it is actually leaking. Keep in mind I have had it for only 3 months used it maybe 4 times and have never dropped it. Last night I went to take a look and it was empty and I cant find the leak. This is unacceptable. This tank shouldnt have any type of a leak even if it is slowly leakin. No it wont effect me while playing because its a verry slow leak but my steel tank I payed a fraction of the price for has been abused and used and holds the fills perfectly its still full from a month ago. This product is graet looking and nice and small but what good is it if I cant fill my tank and bring it home full so that next time I can play without waiting to fill up.
Conclusion: I dont recomend this product. I see that I am not the only person who is having this problem so its not just me. DO NOT BUY THIS TANK go with a crossfire for a few dollards more. Dont get me wrong I loved it till it started leaking. I DONT RECOMEND IT. For $150 I shouldnt be having problems especially after only using it a few times.

So for something that does not affect the playing of the air tank you marked it to a 1? You mentioned that it started happening after playing with it a few times, perhaps you got something in the regulator or the regulator may be malfunctioning and could have been replaced with the manufacturers warranty. Looking at your experience tells me that you did not really look into this. Please do so before posting ratings on items in the future. I know this is sometime far down the road from your posting but did you get a new tank or get this one repaired?
