Products Used:
Just AS CO2, my first HPA tank
Marker Setup: 2k3 Cocker, gas thru grip, boomy, eblade
Strengths: Ajustable output pressure, consistant, price is great for ajustable tank
Weaknesses: The ajusting ring is too sensitive
Review: The good:
I really like this tank. I first used it set to around 700psi with my inline reg, but then got my gas thru. I find that my consistancy is better with the gas thru than it was with my inline, that says something to me. Notice a little inconsistency with the Eblade, but have nothing to compare it to yet, so not sure if its just me or the reg.

The tough skin seems like a neat idea, but I still think a tank cover is woth the money, and I always have mine covered, not worth the risk.

The bad:
The gauges aren't that accurate on mine. Not that mini gauges usually are, but worth mentioning.
Its about the same weight as my 20oz CO2 tank when both are full, which isn't great, but its not a step back either.
The ajusting ring is too sensitive, 1/4 turn is about 50psi, and makes it more difficult to sweetspot the reg.
A bit heavier than some other nitro tanks I've held.

Other:
I've heard people say that it bleeds itself if you turn the output pressure down, well mine doesn't, or atleast it bleeds down so slowly that I don't notice it... When sweet spotting my reg, I have to take a shot to get the gauge to move to its new location.
Conclusion: Overall, I really like this tank. Went with duck per a friend's recomendation, and it was worth it. Have yet to have any problems, I guess they fixed the faulty o-rings that some others speak of.
If you are looking in to getting a nitro tank, and have the extra $25 to spend over a preset, give the x-stream a try. Its a great tank.
