Experience:

Products Used:
Pure Energy 20oz Co2 tank w/ anti-siphon and Smart Parts on/off valve
Marker Setup: 2 Guns: ANS Tricked Autococker and a 2002 Tippmann A5 w/ Dye Boomstick
Strengths: I bought the Pure Energy 4500/45 cubic inch tank...it's great. Improved consistency of shots under rapid fire (HPA systems are known to have better flow consistency than Co2). Also no real need for an expansion chamber on your gun if you go with HPA. I noticed that under rapid fire my A5 gun would get a little bit of water condensation from the cold C02 tank (even w/ the anti-siphon)...with the HPA tank there was no condensation, meaning better accuracy of shots. Also, this tank works great on a remote system (I use the Pure Energy $55 remote and it's awesome with any tank).
Weaknesses: It would be handy to have an On/Off valve on this model...guess you have to pay more money for that. Also, the other guy who said that it's hard to find a field that will fill up to 4500 is right- most fields only give you a hot fill to 3000...a hot fill means that the PSI drops about another 500 after they give you the tank back so you are really only playing with around 2500 PSI...no biggie, but they are not maximizing the efficiency of your tank, and you may have to make one or two more trips for air throughout the day. That's the way it is in most fields in Southern California.
Conclusion: Overall a solid performing HPA tank that fits right into the budget of an intermediate to advanced paintballer.

It depends on if they have thier own comprossor or they order air in scooba tanks.

Ok the difference is its ALOT more constant then co2 doesnt freese your gun up you can play in the winter theres no chance of gettin liqud in your gun like co2 and its alot cleaner then co2 because its not a dirty air

Can Someone help me out i have no clue wtf any of the terms mean and how many shots you get for Ci or psi?? and does it matter ?!?!?!1?!?!?
   

.mista t. Wednesday, November 17th, 2004 | 8:58 am PST
CI (cubic inches) is how big the tank is, size-wise. PSI (pounds/sq. inch) is how much you can fill it before the thing bursts. These two combined make the amount of shots, ie a 47ci/3000psi will get around 500-600 shots, but a 68ci/3000psi will get around 800 i think. and a 68/4500 will usually go over 1000 shots.

cabbspapp123 Wednesday, April 6th, 2005 | 6:04 pm PST
around 500 to 600, and u refill it when the gauge says zero
   

bam wannabe Sunday, May 15th, 2005 | 3:20 pm PST
basically for the 3000 psi's, each Ci will get about 10 shots. i.e... 47 ci will get about 500 shots. 68 ci will get roughly 700-800 shots.... somewhere around that.

i think 4500 psi''s get like, what, 15 shots per ci? correct me if im wrong though.
   

EvilMonkey81 Wednesday, May 18th, 2005 | 10:24 am PST
That is the generally accepted rule of thumb 3000's are CI x 10, 4500's are CI x15.

You might be a little higher or a little lower on number of shots depending on the overall efficiency of your marker.

But like cabbspapp said, watch the guage

is the 47 good for a middle speedball player?thanks
   

triggerhappym Friday, October 7th, 2005 | 11:04 am PST
It's a lot smaller than the other tanks, and lighter. But if your going with a small one get a 4500 psi one or you'll risk running out of air in a match, depending on how many shots you use. I like the bigger tanks cuz i fill up when i get there and when i leave and im good.
for speedball you should be fine, just fill up after every round.

wtf is cu? is it different from ci? if yes, does that mean a 72/3000 tank will get about 800 shots?
