I had a 48/3000 psi steel pmi tank that when i gat it i was happy, because my other tank had been stolen and i got another one for real cheap, it worked fine as long as it was emptied then the first time i aired it up the gauge and burst disk blew off and the gauge broke a window, then after i examined the gauge and the burst disk i noticed the treads had been stirpped, so i got a new gauge and burst disk(bad idea) and i started to fill my tank(really bad idea) as soon as it got to 2000 psi the regulator litterally shot off from the tank and broke another window.
If you either want to kill somebody or have to pay for damages or hospital bills go ahead and get this tank

Ive used this tank on my ion for about the length of time ive had it and ive always liked it. It is a no problem air tank and works. Thats all i really look for in an air tank is that it works. Its fibre wrapped and shoots lol thats about it.
Its an air tank. it makes your marker fire, what else is there to say?
bob long infamous intimadator
45 45 pure energy
Didnt have it long enough to figure much out.
I got the 45 45 tank and i went to the field to play and it worked for about 4 games then i went to fill it up and the pin in the nipple was leaking. So i replaced the o ring. Then i went back to fill it up and screwded it into my gun and there was no presure but the gauge said it had 4000 psi. So i took it a gun tech and he said the gauge is broken. But he unscrewed something and air was still in it> so he look an alot of diff stuff and had no clue what to do>
I think pmi needs to put more money into making there tanks>

I got through 5 games with this tank shoting a hopper + per round. All my shots were getting the same amount of put out of air and The tan kis really light compared to others I have used. All in all it is a great tank and is realatively inexpensive on paintballgear.com

Consistency and weight
Dont see any at this time
I am new to the Nitrogen systems but I will never go back to Co2. The fact that when you set your velocity once ad it stays the same all day is great. I have had no leaks and this tank is so easy to fill. It is light weight also. I would recommend this tank to anyone. It is a HP tank and works great on my old Automag as well.
Buy it. Im sure its as good as anything on the market today.

Did leak out on me over night [Once]
I bought two 48ci 3000psi tanks about half a year ago and only had like 2 small problems with them, ive used them on my trilogy comp, ion, prostock, black magic and impulse. From most of those markers i got about 430-460 shots per fill. The 48/3k is pretty light and about the same weight as a full 20oz but does have a similar shot capacity in between a 9 and 12oz. When low on air the consistency was pretty good and i didn't get much drop off unless i used one of my more gas hungry markers. Now the 2 problems i ever had were it leaking over night with only happened once, [a couple months ago] which made me loose about 1.5k psi. Now the other problem was while using my trilogy that i rarely use anymore, the tank got stuck pretty good in the asa so i had to w8 a couple of minutes b4 it loosened up.
Very good air system, cheap, consistant and light(depending on what size you get).
8 out of 10

I purchased this tank (PMI Pure Energy 72cu 3000psi) from a website for $64. I have to say that it is one of the best investments that I have ever made. I noticed a major increase in shot consistency and accuracy when i switched from CO2. I'm still getting used to the size and weight (compared to a 12oz. CO2 tank). Performance is always at its best with the tank, and doesn't decrease as the tank empties. It is also much safer than CO2, no worries of liquid entering your gun (although it is not a problem with spyders or cockers), or o-rings freezing and breaking. Haven't had a problem with this tank yet, and hope to never have one. I can honestly say the same for the WGP Worr Gas 50ci 300psi tank on the Cocker.
I would definitely reccommend this product to anyone who is looking to upgrade to an HPA/N2 system, you will be amazed at how much better consistency and accuracy you and your gun will achieve with this tank. Only problem for me was the weight and size, but you can always go with the 48cu one if the 72 will not fit or if size/weight is a problem. I'm giving this tank a 9 so as not to seem bias, there are definitely better tanks out there, but the price of this tank makes it one of the best.
Just CO2. Anti-syphoned CO2 on my gun is just about as consistant as HPA.

Carbom Fiber High Pressure 68/4500
I bought this tank less then 1 month ago for 229$ (kind of a rip-off). I got a free fill with it (had no leaks) and have only had one problem with it since. I had about 1000PSI left in the tank and the tank reg slipped slightly off the tank husk. The threading is extremely long (so it is EXTREMELY) unlikely the reg would come off the tank while pressureizied) but it scared the crap out of me. Other then that I have had no problem. I would not advise using this kind of tank in the woods (I have already slightly damaged mine). My only other beef with this tank is the reg on it does not have the best recharge rate. I intend on doing a tank swap and getting a Crossfire reg to replace my PMI reg that the tank came with. Only reason for this is PMI regs do not have the greatest recharge rate. I give this tank a 8 outta 10 as-well. It has also seemed to speed up my response trigger by a few bps (I like).
Well. For starters I only tested this. My friend said I could use it because his auto-cocker was messed and he could not play and use this tank so he let me borrow it. I have never used Compressed Air before. Only CO2. It seemed to be a little bit more consistent then my A/S CO2 tank with the set up I have. I was impressed because at one point I chroned at 222, 223, 222, 219. That is very impressive. On my CO2 tank I would get 4 to 7 fps plus or minus. Although as I fired faster the fps went all over the place (more like 8-10 fps plus or minus) but that happens to any gun. Just a recharge issue and as tank pressure drops it happens. I was using a 72ci tank. I didn't mind the weight but it is HUGE. Weight and size was not a problem although it was harder to get my gun in tight to me (run a remote if its a "Larger" tank) But I did encounter some problems though. I did have a problem with operational pressure when my gun had not had it's internals polished but now after some time of polishing my gun operates at about 500-600PSI. I have no problem with this tank. Only downside of it is that some of these tanks get leaks every now and then but it happens to all tanks and is a free fix at my pro shop. I give this tank a straight up 8 outta 10.
Steel 72/300 - This tank is cheap but heavy and can take one hell of a beating. Could have a better recharge rate but when people but these it is just to get away from CO2. If you can't afford a carbon fiber tank or play woods and are tired of CO2... this is a EXCELLENT tank.
Carbon Fiber 68/4500 - More expensive but lighter. More shots per tank but more fragile than a steel tank. Get it as long as you are extremely careful with it or play only indoors with it. Could have a better recharge rate though. Pretty good tank overall.

im sorry but its Junk!
ok well this was my first HPA tank i bought it seemed a reasonable price compared to most ($80) so yeah i decided hey why not. and yeah so i got one. I admit it was a good tank while it lasted but that was it. then for some reason(about 9 months later) it started holding less and less pressure every time I filled. and eventually it wouldnt put out enough pressure to use my Ion, or may tippmann so i was stuck using Anti-siphon tank. so one of my friends let use his HPA tank (which was the exact same just older) and that one went out on me in the middle of a game, it just started leaking so i took it to my local paintball shop and they said an internal o-ring went out and they would of had to ship it out. so i said screw that and so far im stuck with 2 of these tanks that dont work. so i ended up taking apart my friends old tank and for some reason i found metal shavings in it(like drill shavings) so that kinda confused me, but i dont really know the history of the tank either. and I had 1 more friend who also had his tank start leaking after a year or so but it was a 68/3000 steel tank but that was just out of the fill nipple.
well anyway i dont know if this was just my bad luck.(so please dont flame me) but so far this tank has let me down to many times and i would only recommend it if your short on cash and plan on getting a new (better) tank within a year or so. (just keep in mind these were all those steel/aluminum tanks)
As i said above i will only recommend it if you plan on getting a new one sometime soon. but im sure theres worse tanks out there. (and they work great! When they work) so ill give it a 5 just because something must have been wrong for 3 of them to have problems. maybe if i wasnt on a budget i woulda had them fixed.
