Halo- Victory 35
Guerrilla Air 60/45
that's about it.
I went into the store looking for a new tank and possibly a new mask. I looked at the DXS Peanut tank, and i thought it was light. Then the guy showed me this Guerrilla Air tank. It was huge compared to the DXS, but it was so much lighter, I couldn't believe it. The only one lighter was the CP, and i've had bad experiences with those guys, so I decided it was worth a shot.
I picked one of these up from Paintball Doctor in Plano a few days ago (thanks!!) and i just played with it last Saturday. I was going from a huge aluminum tank (like 5 pounds) to one of these. I bought an NXE cover for this baby, since i play snake, i don't want it cracking or anything.
Well... i filled it up, screwed it in, loaded up, and hit the field for a hyperball game with a few friends. We're not playing tourney style or anything, but we still play pretty hard when we're not actually playing in a tournament. While I was standing at the deadbox, waiting for the ref's go, i really noticed "I must have forgot to put paint in! Oh ****!" so then i looked down.... my hopper was full. I realized I must have forgotten to fill up, then... no... it was just how light my PMR was with this tank.
"3...2...1... go go go!" I sprinted towards the snake and supermanned, slamming my brand new tank against the ground. Thanks to the cover, my tank was perfectly fine and shooting good. Snapshooting was much easier due to the reduced weight, and my profile was smaller due to the reduced size.
A few games later... yes, a few. A game is, on average, a hopper and a pod... so, let's say I played four games... that's around 350 balls, i'd say. 350 x 4... 1400 shots. Pretty damn good.
I payed 200 bucks for this, plus like a 25 dollar cover. 225 for a tank. Thankfully, this was a gift, so I only had to pay half, but if you're buying a completely new setup, i could see this adding up.

Weird incident (explaination in review)
This was the first compressed air tank that I bought, and probably the only I will really ever need. Let me start off by saying that this is an amazing tank but... she's kind of particular in a sense, let me break it down for you.
This tank is really really REALLY light, i cannot stress it enough, it weights less then any tank that I've come across. Meaning all the kids that i play with ask about it and compare it to their own, in most cases this tank filled weighs less then all the others i have come across...empty. Excluding stupid 12oz CO2 or something small like that, comparing to 20oz CO2 or any HPA/N2 it weighs less... simple. You may come across another tank where the specs say that it weighs less then this tank but dont be fooled, check out the gargantuan regulator that the other tank has. The Myth reg on this thing is tiny... probably too tiny but we'll delve into that later. The shorter the length between the gun center of mass and the tank center of mass means a more centralized total center of mass. Same concept as a drop forward really so where that other tank may be technically lighter this tank acts like it has a built in dropforward fo it FEELS lighter and much more maneuverable. My book this scores perfect in weight category.
price... go look at other 68/4500 i think this one is priced pretty reasonably coompared to most of the tanks out there, ok well its not great priced but lightweight+myth reg+carbon fibre=$154.95....i think it's worth it
durability.... ok so i dont have a cover for this thing (explain why later) and all i put over it is a sock, quite literally one of dads black dress socks. i have played a ton of games with this sock tank combo, yet i have it in my hands and after pulling the sock off the surface is still flawless, i have fallen to the ground, dove to the ground, dropped the gun, ran into trees bunkers whatnot u name it.. still flawless surface.... very nice
The ehh not so good:
Compatibility... she gets along with any gun that is not what i mean, a big reason why i dont have a cover for it is becase it's kind of an awkwardly shaped tank, i went to the paintball place closest to me and tried on their rhino covers there and non fit, although i realize there are peanut shaped covers, i just dont wanna spend 30 bucks on something online that may not fit, so technically this may not actually be a bad thing for you. If u have a legit store around you then you should be able to find a cover for you, but for me.... sock it is..
Now the other part of this is because of the extremely short nature of the Myth reg, she doesn't get along with most dropforwards, now i say this because i actually bought this item twice, the first time i bought it from a place with a couple of friends who got it too, but they had dropforwards that didnt fit together with the tank so they had to return theirs, my tippmann has a drop on it and it works well and i dont really need a drop with a gun that weighs less then 2 pounds. This again isnt such a bad thing.. just make sure your setup will work with it
The last thing i wanted to talk about was the reason i bought this thing twice, whereas i only have one tank..i havent heard or seen of any other incidents with this tank like the one that i experienced so as far as i know, it was more like a freak accident. I bought that first tank from the paintball place that i went to and got it filled, when the handed it back to me the out layer of the glass started chipping and cracking right before my eyes, now i dont know if the guy was an idiot and overfilled the darn thing or if it was like a manufacturing defect but since then ive had my new one filled a ton of times and its still perfect so.. i thought i would just throw that out there... like i said probably a freak accident
UPDATE: Yea so like a week after i write this review my tank starts leaking, guerrilla air wont answer me, i dunno about u but two times is enough for me
I still give it a 9 out of 10 cuz most of the bad things that happened to me are mostly because of my bad luck and terrible geographic location (not much paintballing around where i live gotta travel a few hours). But since it happened to me twice, or well i have gotten garbage product on two separate occasions so i kill that nine with a 4
4 out of 10

48ci 3000psi pure energy air tank, much heavier and less shots and it is bigger.
08 spyder pilot with trinity t lock(needs ion threads), invert reloader 2, j&j s2 14inch barrel and a 48ci 4500psi guerrilla air HPA tank.
It is light,
and gets alot of shots for its size.
It pings when you shoot and
is slippery without a cover.
This tank is sick. It is the lightest tank around and holds alot of shots for its size. It is also very small and awesome. Some people say that draxxus is lighter but that is untrue. It is espiecilly perfect for me because i have small arms which makes perfect for shouldering.
This product is great, light, small. It is slippery without a cover and pings but that is a easy fix.BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Very lightweight. Amazing appearance. Best recharge rate.
Sometimes a little too small
This has been the best air system I have ever used. The graphics are amazing and the lightness of the tank makes playing a breeze. The regulator (Myth) is incredible as well with many more shots available because of the recharge rate. When playing with it I get complemented by friends and people I play against as well. So far many people have gone to buy this tank / air system just after watching me play with it. Furthermore, the customer service is amazing. I once had a simple quetion and they responded and took care of the issue in amazing time.
This is by far the mist recomended tank out there. There is no competitor to it.

I love this tank and have had none of the problems others here have mentioned. The Myth reg is perfect for me. High flow rate and the smallest profile of any tank reg available today! The ability to get higher or lower output pressure is huge for me since I use an Automag and they love higher pressure with the ULT upgrade and the Guerrilla Air/Myth combination gives me this ability. I had my 68/4500 tank factory set for 900psi output and the trigger response is great from my Tac-One. The HP kit costs extra and has to be special ordered from Guerrilla Air directly, but if you buy the whole tank system from them, they install it in the Myth reg and tune it to whatever pressure you want before they ship it.
I bought my tank with the HP kit and the protective cover and love it! I will update this review if I have any problems in the future.
Get this tank if you want a high quality tank and reg with pressure output options other manufacturers don't offer.

I bought this tank in december and at first I loved it like most people do. But as time has gone on I have started to feel different. At first I didnt notice that it even had a leak because I play maybe once a month and dont have much of a memory of if I filled it before I left the field or if I may have dry fired it and not remembered. Anyway let alone that it is not as light as the crossfire wich I can deal with because it's still very light. I recently noticed that it has a slow leak. Before leaving the field last week I filled both my tanks and have not dry fired with either of them. It was filled when I left. Monday I took out my tank to shoot some v balls and noticed the tank was down to 2500 and thought maybe I had forgotten that I shot it so I ended up not using it so I could monitor it and see if it is actually leaking. Keep in mind I have had it for only 3 months used it maybe 4 times and have never dropped it. Last night I went to take a look and it was empty and I cant find the leak. This is unacceptable. This tank shouldnt have any type of a leak even if it is slowly leakin. No it wont effect me while playing because its a verry slow leak but my steel tank I payed a fraction of the price for has been abused and used and holds the fills perfectly its still full from a month ago. This product is graet looking and nice and small but what good is it if I cant fill my tank and bring it home full so that next time I can play without waiting to fill up.
I dont recomend this product. I see that I am not the only person who is having this problem so its not just me. DO NOT BUY THIS TANK go with a crossfire for a few dollards more. Dont get me wrong I loved it till it started leaking. I DONT RECOMEND IT. For $150 I shouldnt be having problems especially after only using it a few times.

The Guerrilla Air Tank is by far the lightest and most efficient tank i have ever used not to mention the tiny fill nipple on the micro myth (doesn't jab into your wrist like most do)
Small, Efficient, Quality, Customer Service
I have been using this tank for some time, I loved it from the start and im still loving it. This tank will shoot down lower than most tanks, and the fill nipple it small as is the gauge. I like how on the side it says how often it needs to be re hydroed in simple terms
*Pure Energy 72/3000 - Very Heavy, that's what made me look into a CF tank.
*Halo B w/ Rip Drive
*CP Clamping Feedneck
*Custom Empire Grips
*Guerilla Air 68/4500 HPA Carbon Fiber Tank
* WEIGHT (or lack of it)
None so far
The only other other tank i have ever used is a 68/3000 regular tank. It weighed 5 pounds as compared to this tank which only ways 2. This tank is by far the lightest tank that I have ever felt or tried out in my life. Also, it is very small and holds a lot of air. What other air system will let you get about 1200 shots per fill and weight 2 lbs. None. The price of this tank is also very good compared to other tanks. I bought this tank for about 150 from Zephyr Paintball and it was a great deal.
If your in the market for a carbon fiber tank, definitely get this one. Great bang for your buck and is very light.

Reduced length and size compared to other 68ci tanks
Regulator can unscrew
Difficulty of finding a cover that will fit the tank
This tank is the best tank you can buy and the best tank for the money. The tank is extremely small and lightweight. It doesn't feel like a 68 when you hold it. It has the best tank regulator on the market. The reg is the lightest and lowest profile made. It only costs $150 while heavier more expensive tanks cost over $160. The tank does have its share of problems though. I don't feel like my gauge is accurate, many have difficulty finding covers and the reg comes off maybe a little too easily but overall the benefits outweigh the flaws.

I own the 68 and 88/4500 ci tanks and i could not be any happier with the performance the regulator is very compact thats a big plus never filled it to full 4500 wondering if that might be the only problem. Note to all consumers all products have defects is just the nature of the biz.
