Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month
Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years

Products Used:
Numerous Pure Energy tanks and an old carbon fiber tank. I think it was Bulldog or something. Pretty bad though.
Marker Setup: Phenom with Lapco barrel, custom Magpul butt-stock, Magpul mbus sights, generic foregrip, and modified trigger grip. Also have RAP4 low profile hopper. It comes off easier than the standard Tippmann version.

Phenom has full internal upgrades. TechT Bad Karma bolt, TechT vortex mod with second gen squishy paddles, QEPH with Lightning Rod, and Phaze 5 fittings

Guerilla Air stubby 45 4800 tank with Nxe tank cover

Green V-Force Grill with visor and yellow lense

Also have a first generation A5 with flatline and CAR stock and a 98 Platinum I'm tuning for maximum accuracy.

Not sure what to name my Phenom yet. Message or comment if you have an idea.
Strengths: Small length. Well constructed. The air indicator is accurate.
Weaknesses: Very wide. Slippery if you use as stock. No flat surface on the tank.
Review: There's not much to say about this air tank. I haven't found anything to not like about it except for what all carbon tanks have.

Obviously the tank is a "stubby" so it's short but wide. Please no phallic jokes. It's spun like all fiber tanks so the butt isn't flat. This means you need to rest the tank on something so it won't roll away. The tank is black with the Guerilla logo clearly displayed and all the text on the tank is easy to read in case you don't know how to use it. If you don't then you probably shouldn't be playing paintball.

I would recommend you get a tank cover with it just to be safe. It can certainly take a shot from point-blank range but I wouldn't recommend landing on it when you dive.

If you plan on putting it on a vest with a remote line you'll probably want a small tank holder if you're ordering from RAP4. I'm not sure if other manufacturers like BT have one size fits all holders so do some of your own research.
Conclusion: I'm not a fan of the tank's shape but that's' just because I'm so accustomed to steel tanks. Overall if you want a small air tank that can hold a lot of air it's great. It is well made, can withstand rough play and looks pretty cool. I'm only giving it an 8 because it's akward for me. Other than that, it's just about perfect.
