The DraXxuS DXS Nitrogen Systems are newer, so they should be commonly available, both new and used.

Light, nice polished look, small, good amount of shots, price.
New brand might put down some people.
This is the first air tank that I have bought. I got it for $175 which I was told was a good price. It is light in my hands. Using it on my Prostock I get about 900 shots. On my Ion I get more. It is consistent with a difference of usually only 5 fps up or down. The meter on it is the right size and is very accurate with telling how much air is left. It is available in both low and high pressure output and is easy to change from one to the other.
Because it is a new brand, some people might not want to spend there money on it. I believe that it is a very good system and hope to use it for a long time because my wallet can't take much more of this.
I got this tanks a few months ago and when it first came in the mail, i thought that the package was empty it was so light. I think it is only like 2-1/2 lbs, which compared to my steel before, is much lighter than 4-1/2 lbs. Its so small also. It is almost as small as some other companies 45s. I was very impressed so i aired it up with no leaks or problems whatsoever. When on my gun, because of its size, it made my setup much more compact which i loved. Also because of the weight, i could snap faster also.
I highly recommend it over other tank because of its size and weight. Worth the 180 in my opinion which is a very reasonable price for a carbonfiber tank. If u have the means, get one. 9 cuz nothings perfect
ok i got this tank about 2 weeks ago from my local store.(MSG Paintball) When i saw this thing sitting there it looked no bigger than a softball with a stem coming off. When i picked the tank up and was holding it you get a feel for how light it is. Its light, really light. The next day i went out and did a little 1v1 with my neighbor in my backyard.
thing thing is so tiny that it makes it easier to run, snapshoot, and especially run and gun. Becasue thins tank makes your gun so cloase to your body you can actually run and gun going way faster!
Draxxus is a great company and they made an unbelievable tank. If your in the market for a tank, dont even look around. Draxxus tanks are the bect on the market right now and will stay there.(CP doesnt count, there regs are too expensive.)

Bought tank for 170 dollars which is pretty good compared to my crossfire for 210. Tank looks great, very little if any drop off at 20+bps. It is shorter than my crossfire 45 45 but is a bit fatter. Fit very nicley in my shoulder. I love mine so there it is
Buy it if your going for the lightest setup. if i could id get a 07 ego,velocity jr, and draxxus 48 4500 tank. The whole setup would be less than 5 pounds

Well, I decided to explore a new company to its fullest. Having already purchased a Pulse (which is, hands down, the best loader on the planet). Since I recently sold my Crossfire to a willing buyer after the hydro expired, I needed to purchase a new tank. The DXS caught my eye. It was cheap. It looked solid.
Whenever the tank arrived, I first noticed its weight. The fiber-wrapped models are always light, but this thing was even lighter than my Crossfire. The thing looks sexy too, so even if you can't find a good tank cover (I recommend the NXE Dynasty cover), play without. It certainly looks better than the CenterFlag or Crossfire models, and it has a comparable recharge rate. I was somehow able to achieve 26.3 BPS, pausing only once halfway through my loader, and the shots didn't even drop off.
I understand that the regulator for the Crossfire may have a slight advantage, but honestly, the only stigma I could ever associate with this tank is the lack of popularity. At about $80 cheaper than the Crossfire and most definitely lighter, you have to drive a hard wagon if you ignore this product.
Whether you need a backup tank or you just want to look spiffy, the DXS line of systems (68/4500 pref.) is not a system you can ignore easily. It's cheap. It's fast. And it's really light.
Dye Throttle, Crossfire, (Pure Energy - Don't ever get one)
Smart Parts Ion
Dye throttle 45/4500
A little pricey to some people...
Okay I was reffing a tournament at a local field I play at and I had the opportunity to shoot with this tank and feel the comfort of it cupped onto my shoulder.. It was light easy to snap shoot with and I happened to notice that a Draxxus 68/4500 might be just as light as my Dye Throttle 45/4500.. It wasn't proven, but there was similarity in weight to my opinion.
If you are a back player that loves to snap shoot buy this.. Even if you are a front or mid it wouldn't be a bad investment because you can move your gun around just as fast with this tank as you can any other. GREAT TANK! GET IT! You want be disappointed.

Well, its a high pressure air tank....what more can you say. it doesnt leak, it is light, it gets the job done. the only thing questionable about it is the gauge. it is a 0-6000 and unfortunately the tank (mine) only goes up to 3000. i dont understand. plus the gauge looks crappy. other than that no troubles yet. definitely a 10 because the gauge doesnt affect performance at all.
Definitely get it. now if you pay 210 for it i would probably spend the extra 20 and get a cp air tank. but if you can get it for 100 or less, you cant beat it
pure energy 68/ 4500-bigger, more shots, the reg isnt the best
pure energy 72/ 3000-heavy as crap, less shots, huge, just terrible

I have the Draxxus 45 4500 tank. This tank is insanely small, Im pretty sure it is the smallest and lightest tanks yet, correct me if im wrong. The reg is very good I saw a huge difference in performance compared to the Pure Energy reg. If you play mid/front like me this tank will give you an extremely small setup which helps alot. If you play back you migh want the 68ci but they both will work great. I get about 1000 shots or two bags with this so you will never run out mid game unless your in a big game or scenario event.
Get a Draxxus system you will not regret it nor need any other tanks.
