Agent SE Thursday, September 6th, 2001
Strengths: The only thing good about this tank is the compact regulator design, pretty white bottle, and the fact that the regulator was replaced free of chrage when this P.O.S. broke down.
Weaknesses: This is probably one of the worst purchases I've made since I began playing paintball 5 years ago. (ACI Bulldog 68ci/3000psi adjustable tank cost me $240.00 last yr.) The adjustable regulator was defective, it has extremely slow recharge rates, and the regulator seat went and blew the burst disk and my DYE microguage out. This all happened within after a month of buying it. I called ACI and they referred me to the Hose Shop who services the regulators. They replaced the entire regulator free of charge, but to this day (a year later) I still have problems with the regulator seat going bad on frequent occasions. It has happened 3 times since, and I've blown 2 guages and 3 burst disks. The design of this regulator is inferior, the reg. seat is too easily contaminated, and I've even taken the precaution of using an AKA guardian fill filter with every fill. I've had everything done in terms of rebuilding and relacing internals to the 2 regulators the bottle has seen possible, and they keep crapping out. Luckily, it's working at the moment because I just had a new seat put in, but in no way possible is this thing high flowing enough for a high-end marker like my RT or and an Angel......major shoot-down. Keep in mind this is the adjustable reg. not preset version. I basically use this on my Spyder now, and will probably upgrade to a 45/45 AA armageddon when I get the money.
Conclusion: Stay away from these tanks, I'm not the only one who has had bad experiences with them. They are mass produced regulators shared by several different companies and the quality assurance is not there. I have not used the presets, I heard they were decent. For the money I should have just stepped up a bit and bought the AGD Flatline or a Conquest.
