Review: I like that you can unscrew it from the reg. You can move the reg a few inches back or forward on the rail. It's adjustible. It's 4500 psi fiber wrapped. It comes with two good gauges. The thing is very solid and seems really reliable. The pressure adjustment is easy, but tournament legal. Fairly easy to move from one marker to another if you use a rail.

You need an Armageddon rail to mount it. It's more of a pain than a CA screw in tank. Many accessories will not work with a 1/8 NPT mounting like this. Very expensive. It could REALLY use one more output hole, it only has one.

UPDATE
This is a good tank for back in the day, but it's starting to lose steam now. It's true that more and more drops and frames come with dovetail mounts, making this tank more useable, but there are also more double regged and high flow systems out there to compete against now. I've got to a Nitro Duck X-Stream now, simply because it's a screw-in tank that's adjustible.

I've got multiple markers, and the only way to use this tank on multiple markers is to shell out for more reg bodies, and that's pricey. If you can do it, that works great because of the screw-in bottle though.
Conclusion: Well it's yesterday's top of the line and has some great features, but there's still room for improvement.
