I have screwed this into my marker without airing it up first and there was some serious wobbling but then again that was just when the tank wasnt aired up.
Before airing it up
-Tank wobbles while screwed in
-Adjustable notch is easily spun with use of supplied wrench
After airing it up
-Wobbling problems totally disappear. Tank screws securely into your ASA
-Output pressure adjuster virtually "locks" into place and can only be moved by the use of the wrench (and alittle bit of muscle)
The only problem I had with this tank so far is that the nipple is poorly construcked on the inside. After I got it aired up (at PaintballGarage in Hicksville, NY) we discovered that a semi-common occurance is that the o-ring can easily blow allowing all the pressure to escape from the nipple (one of the salesmen had the exact same problem with his Xstream). This was easily fixed though by replacing the standard nipple with a PMI nipple. I haven't seen any problems since.
I would definitely recommend this product. It virtually eliminates the need for a secondary regulator. Aside from the little nipple problem, it has excellent construction.
Because of that problem I cant give it a 10 but if this system allowed I would give it a 9.5
So that is my rating. I GIVE THIS A 9.5
10 out of 10

It isn't exactly the nipple's fault. Since this system is an adjustable screw in, the internals of the reg body rotate as the output pressure is adjusted. This is what causes the wobble. While it is somewhat of a design problem, i don't think it can really be avoided.
