First off, let me say I had a bad experience with my 45/50 Ninja pop can. I'm sure it was a faulty product and not indicative of all Ninja HPAs but it is a proof of concept for the following review:
I bought this HPA when I picked up my Invert Mini Storm LE. It was cheaper than the Pure Energy Tanks and looked to be the same thing. I did notice in the store that the regulator looked a little more 'streamlined' than the regs on the PE's. Its almost like there is less metal or something...
I put the tank on the mini, pressurized it and it worked like a charm. Later that day, I got home, took the tank off the gun began to hear this strange hissing sound. To my surprise there was air hissing out of the valve. I picked up the tank, thinking the o-ring might have slipped a bit and jiggled the pin around a bit to try and put it back in place. The instant I touched the pin, a loud popping sound occurred and the leak became violent, making something inside the tank vibrate and almost causing me to drop it in shock. I called the store and they did not believe me. "Air tanks don't leak like that" one guy said. Yeah, right. BS
The next day I took the tank back, filled it up (It drained itself pretty quick) and told the guy that if Air tanks don't leak like this then maybe he would like to hold it next to his teeth. Needless to say he returned it saying "Yeah, these ninja tanks are kinda cheap."
I paid the extra $40 and picked up a Pure Energy instead.
BTW: my paintball buddy has a 68/45 Ninja tank and it has never done him wrong - Although store owners who see his set up have commented in the past "Why did you get that one?" in reference to his Ninja tank..
Having a brand new air tank fail in a violent and somewhat scary way is not good. I read the manual and they have built alot of safety features into this tank to keep it from going ballistic but when that thing started vibrating and hissing at me, I suddenly didn't care what the manual said.
I have seen plenty of people use Ninja tanks and be satisfied with them. I, however, got the one bad apple and I want that to be represented here on PBReview. I notice all of the reviews are good (Like most of the Ninja tanks on the market) but the one bad tank needs to be represented by the one bad review.
The fact of the matter is, this got through Ninja quality control and that is not right. I dont know what was wrong with this tank and I dont care. I might buy a Ninja in the future but for the moment, I'm spending the extra money and getting something with more metal in the reg.
Ninja, you get a 3. Deal with it.

You apparently can not deal with it. Let me re-iterate the first sentence of my review:
" First off, let me say I had a bad experience with my 45/50 Ninja pop can. I'm sure it was a faulty product and not indicative of all Ninja HPAs but it is a proof of concept for the following review:"
Let me also re-iterate the third last paragraph of my conclusion:
"I have seen plenty of people use Ninja tanks and be satisfied with them. I, however, got the one bad apple and I want that to be represented here on PBReview. I notice all of the reviews are good (Like most of the Ninja tanks on the market) but the one bad tank needs to be represented by the one bad review."
If you dont want to read my review and my conclusion, dont dispute the review. I have already stated exactly what you are trying to say in your dispute and I have given reasons why I was still writing a negative review. One of those reasons was the second last paragraph of my conclusion and reads as follows:
"The fact of the matter is, this got through Ninja quality control and that is not right. I dont know what was wrong with this tank and I dont care..."
Given the fact that you disputed my review on grounds that I already stated and explained, I am reporting your dispute as inappropriate. I think your comment would have been better suited as simply A COMMENT rather than a dispute.
I will now re-iterate the 4th and final paragraph of my conclusion:
"Ninja, you get a 3. Deal with it."
