This tank is good for 5 years before needing to be rehydroed. Preset tank is well regulated by ANS regulator and comes in three different anodized colors: red, blue, and black. Tank is very consistent and is very light. Beautiful package at a even more beautiful price.
The System X Air System is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
I have gone through 4 HPA tanks and 3 of them had all the same problems. When I first got the tanks filled they leaked. They leaked at the burst disc, the nipple, and in 2 cases the gauge. The regulator kept spiking EVERY SINGLE TIME and would ALWAYS pop the burst disc. Eventually the gauge became defective because it wouldn't accurately show the pressure after about 4 fills. This happened for all 3. 3 of those tanks were 68/4500 carbon fiber tanks and the only one that worked was the 68/3000 fiber wrapped. Anyone who wants to believe that companies don't release dangerous products really should wake up! I'm not saying this just because I'm royally annoyed, it's also because it's the truth. I have seen countless products from System X show complete lack of quality control. The only thing that's good about System X is their paintballs, harnesses, barrel condoms, etc.
DO NOT BUY THIS TANK. Don't try to save $5-$10 just to risk your safety. ACI and PMI tanks are already at a very low-price and above all else, they're SAFE!

This is a great tank for the price. It's a luxfor 3 year tank with a centerflag Hyper Flow regulator. The tank is lightweight and the reg has a good recharge. Centerflag has a good rep when it comes to regs. I have shoot long strings of paint with this tank and have noticed very little shootdown. It has a nice small guage on it. It almost looks like the dye gauges.
definatly worth looking into if your considering jumping into compressed air.

easy to fill?
not too $$
uhhh... system x product..
gauge isnt so good
I was very cautious about filling my friend's brand new system x tank. After filling, I was rather impressed. It is crazy light, especially compared to my armageddon. the reg on the tank is not actually system x, I believe it was crossfire or centerflag... I didn't really pay that much attention. If you guys notice, none of the newer reviews rate it below an 8. It seems the tanks have had a problem with the burst disks a while ago, but I believe they fixed that. These tanks are actually really really good. they are light, have a nice look, great reg, and are compressed air. I believe the 68/4500 tank he has was 200, so it's not a bad deal. my only beef is the gauge is pretty crappy, but that's like a 5 buck fix, so its not that big of a deal.
if you are alooking for a nice, light tank, ceck this one out. I would still be wary of the burst disks, but I personally saw no sign of danger from my friend's.
pops too many burst discs
I had this thing for less then 2 weeks. LESS THEN 2 WEEKS. It kept blowing out burst disc after burst disc. I took it back for another one and that one just leaked everywhere. I got so sick I just went ahead and bought a Max-Flo. Don't waste your time and money with this thing.
Buy from a reputable company. Not some piece of garbage that won't even work the day you buy it. Remember that time is money so if you're wasting one you're wasting the other. Buying this tank, you'll waste both.

I was reluctant to buy one of these after reading the bad reviews here on PBreview, but I went ahead and bid on a used tank from eBay and picked up the 68/4500 fiber wrapped tank for $112. What a steal! The tank is like 5 years old and still in mint condition! Gets great consistency putting out 750psi (preset) into the max-flo on my shocker.
I've gotten compliments by pro-shop staff about how light the tank is when they fill it. Combining this with my shocker makes a very lightweight marker setup. Love it.
Very glad I ignored the bad reviews and bought this tank. Saved big money and got an excellent tank. 9/10 cause the reg is not adjustable.

I got this nitro when i got a hatrick in a hockey game. At first i thought it was a little big but i got used to it. THe only problem with this nitro is it doesnt fit in my 32 deegres hose. Other wise this is a very good product

-Comes stock with a guerrilla reg
This tank is awesome. I bought the 68/30 from my local shop for 165. I was suprised to see that it came stock with a Guerrilla Ambush reg. These regs are great, jus read the review here on pbreview at http://www.pbreview.com/products/reviews/3665/ . The tank is jus an average SCI fiber wrapped tank, light weight, and not affected by that DOT thing.
I think the reason that some people gave bad ratings for this tank is that system x changes the reg the use a lot, from what i know. when i went to the shop to see the price a month ago, it had a centerflag reg, and when i went to buy it, it had a guerrilla reg. the tanks with problems probably had a reg from a bad company. from what i know, they are using guerrilla regs now which are awesome.
I would recommend this tank to anybody who is buying one because it comes with a guerrilla ambush reg which is great.
AKA Viking / Sidewinder Reg. / SCM Mod / J&J Edge Ceramic Barrel Kit / System X 68ci - 4500psi HPA / Halo B (Rip Drive)
Light, good reg (centerflag hyperflow), 5 year hydro
I bought a 4500psi 68ci SystemX HPA tank at the 2003 World Cup and used it in 3 games of college XBall. I filled and emptied it over 3 dozen times, with no problems. The fills were anywhere from 2700 to 4500 psi, with nothing going wrong. I don't know why others reviewing this had such poor results, it's possible they got a bad batch of tanks. Mine has worked very nicely. I have used it many times since and it has a nice steady output, with my Viking with Sidewinder, I shoot +/-2 fps over the chrono. I recommend it.
Buy it new, not used, and you should avoid getting any that were in a bad batch. It is a good tank with an excellent reg.

Various other little goodies
Price(!), light, works great
None, but alot of people seem to badmouth SystemX tanks...
This tank is great. I just got it recently, and I love it. I havn't had one burst disc fail me yet. I've filled to 4500 psi, and still no problems. Maybe everyone else got the early batch that still had some bugs in it. Mine works flawlessly. If you are hesitating about buying this tank, fear not. Its a good tank, and it will serve you well.
I say this tank is second to none in terms of the price to performance ratio. Lightweight, good consistancy, and very cheap. What more do you need?

This tank is awsome it is very light, consistent and very economically priced.I don't know how anyone can say this tank is no good. I've used it almost every weekend for about 6 months & no problems what so ever. I chrono 280 -283-280 throught out the entire day. My paintball buddies have also bought system x tanks & had no problems either.
Nothing yet! so far excellent
I'll personally recommend this tank to anyone .It's cheaply priced & performs great. I recommend buying a tank cover since it's fiber wrapped. I give this product a 10 since i've had no problems at all.
