The a.i.r. is a 4500-psi electro pneumatic digital regulator. It is supposed to have the best performance, consistency and reliability in a paintball regulator. The a.i.r. uses sensors to constantly monitor the pressure in your tank while a tiny microprocessor calculates the number of shots you have left as well as the output pressure and the gas remaining in your tank. At the touch of a button the a.i.r. will allow you to easily scroll through the regulator's functions. To check on status of your tank pressure, output pressure or shots left. The a.i.r. comes complete with a dual approved D.O.T/HSE ergonomic 68cu.inch composite cylinder including the "Lok-Sok" grip enhancer for maximum control and a universal mounting bracket to fit most markers available today. It also includes a standard ASTM rupture disc; a low-pressure safety vent and a low profile fill nipple with integral nipple cover.Whatever marker you shoot the a.i.r. will give you the opportunity to experience the style, quality and performance of the universes first electro pneumatic paintball regulator.
The WDP Angel Air A.I.R. System is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

-Does it's job like it's supposed to
The Angel AIR I use was once used by SK of Dynasty when they shot Angels and all that good stuff. They look really cool and do their job like they are supposed to. I only have consistancy issues with my gun because of the type of bolt that I have and that's about it. When I chrono I usually get the same between two shots every now and then, but other times it'll go up about 5 or so and down about 3. I've never had to worry about shooting hot because it keeps me at a good 275 fps.
If you have the money and use a low pressure gun I feel this is a good tank to purchase, but you can find a used one like I did for a cheaper price.
poorly made, blows your macro line because when firing fast it releases high pressures,
i haven't had this tank for very long before I returned it. The first few times that I used it, went ok, but after a while the electronics got screwed up. Even though i took good care of it. Also, i i think that some of the electronic features on it are kind of pointless. Because for most people buying this for their angel, they already have a lot of features.
but after a while, my macro line started to frequently blow. Despite my best efforts to get it fixed, and lower the output pressure.
it is ok. There are quite a few good ones out there, but i strongly recomend something like a max-flow, or worr gas, but not this crapchunk

Super consistant, Awsome shot count
A little heavey just dont be wuss about it
I first used my freinds angel with this beast on it and it ripped. I shot well over 500 shots with 1000psi left in it. His shot counter didnt work for sum reason. And u guys make it sound so big about the shot counter thing. Common u should put a AIR system on a tippy with flateline. I can always read it and i can read it even in indoor feilds were its really dim. But it was an over all awsome tank. The only problem is it heats up super fast when u fill so u gotta fill it slow or else it'll gett really hot and over time it will ruin the reg. I also love how the regs square and there arent any guages cuz i hold my gun by the tank when i play back and it fits perfectly just the hose gets in the way. Only because im lefty.
I think if u got the money get this. U can find the really cheap used for $250-$300 tops. No real point of buying a new one find one used at online fourms like pbreviews
IR3 CnC (Champagne Dust - sweet), Intellifeed equipped, Cobra bolt, Cobra SS hammer, Nickel buttons
Infinity barrel (also have Boomie, Cobra 2-step & OTP-G)
Digital readout of remaing psi & output psi
shot calc (never really use that anymore. Just a waste of paint to set it anyways)
Lok skin equipped
Ensure you have your airsmith clean the internals of factory grease. If there is too much, it will interere with the air flow (Cobra did this for me when I bought it). This will illeviate most (if any) of your problems
Had a leak in the pressure release (Cobra just put a stronger spring in there, no more worries)
Turning down the output in order to refill
If you have an Angel, this is the air system made for that gun. With my IR3 and higher ROF, the fast recharge rate is very beneficial. It performs as advertised. I will never need to look for another system. For tourney play, you need the peace of mind that you won't get penalized for shooting hot. Once I set the output psi (even after refill), it shot at the same fps. Get a screw (Cobra sells em) to forgo the allan wrench adjustments. Must ensure you turn down the output b/f filling.
88cu 4500 psi Angel Air
smart parts barrel
so on and so on
Its electronic, tells you the amount of pressure you have left, shots left (after you calculate it, which is easier than it sounds. hold the button until it says CALC then shoot for 30 seconds and it calculates how many shots you have left.) and it says what your output pressure is.
the shots left count is accurat to about 5%% that I calculated the book says 10%%
I now have no use for my regulator since it has it built in and it recharges fast. so i put a gas threw stock and i only vary about 5 FPS during the recharges.
You have to push the button to check what your pressure or whatever it is what your looking for. They shoudl display all 3 choices at once on the display. It apparantly is delicate to fill. The shop filled it too fast and it blew somthing inside but it was less than a week old so they fixed it for free.
This tank isn't much more money than an air america apocolypse and it has a reg on it so you don't have to upgrade to a good one later or whatever. I just hope that wierd blowout when the guy filled it is a once happening. Get it its good and i am happy with it
This tank is AWESOME. It will shoot well when the tank pressure is very low. I had around 450 psi left in the tank and still shot 270-260 fps with the Angel Air on my Free Flow. Another plus, you can remove the tank if you plan to fly with it. Some airports will not let you check in any type of tank, even if it's empty.
No on/off valve.
Kickbutt product! If you own an Angel it is a must have item.
The a.i.r is very consistent, i've used pre-sets, adjustables and stuff and the a.i.r was with out a doubt much more consistent. I normally get +/- 1 or 0 at the chrono.
And with the locksoks it looks really sweet. I also have a 45ci. bottle on it and it is very light too. But there is a reason WDP went without an on/off . WDP went with no ON/OFF because it puts the regulator under less stress when there is air in the tank, and you have it turned off.
An ON/OFF has a lower flow rate than a tank without an ON/OFF, this reason isn't much of a difference but it has been shown to be true.
But just get a pro-connect and your fine.
The only thing i found not so good about it is that i bought mine before they came out with the silver ones(i have a silver dark LCD) and it would have matched.
I think it is worth how much it costs, you can get one used for about 250 and replace the internall o-rings if needed and your set up. I recommend it to anyone looking for a high end air system cause it blows the competetion away!
This rules, a little pricey, but VERY Consistent. I really like the look, and feel. I like the features, and it has AWESOME read outs. YOU CAN USE A KAPP DROP ZONE 2 CRADLE< IF YOU REMOVE THE LOK SOK SKIN CONNECTOR!!!!!
Nada, maybe Price......I adpated mine to use a Kapp Drop Zone 2, by removeing the the middle Angel air "Nipple" Aodter (from tank to reg), the Tank just screws off!!
I like it a lot, but I sold it to get an even better tank, the Colored Max-Flo 88/4500's from PaintBall gear. I think there about the same, but the max flo has an on/off........
Ok, I got the Angel A.I.R about 2 weeks ago and it is far out the best bottle I have ever used! Before I got it I hade a ACI Bulldog. With the bulldog the paintballs speeds jumped about 15 fps but now it jumps about 1-2 fps. I dont even have to use my regulater on my Angel just the one on the air. I don't even think the price is so bad.
Nothing bad about it!
As I said, I don't even think it cost so much. If you compare it with Max Flow it is allmost the same price. And you can't really compare it with another tank because I think it is so much better! If you are using a Tribal, Angel, Shocker or any electronic marker tha shoots over 10 per second this is the tank for you!!
I have only used this tank a few times because it is so expensive, and I am a tester at my local paintball store for new guns and other new stuff that comes out. Anyways, this is the best tank money can buy if you don't mind spending abour 500 smacks. The electronic top is quite nice and you can program the output pressure with your very own computer at home. The consistence is top of the line, I hve an Smart Parts Impulse and it has absolutely no recoil, recharge time at all, and it's damn consistent.
the hefty price tag, and if you aren't experienced in paintballing this is DEFINATELY not the tank for you with all the programming and stuff.
It could be a little lower than what the M.S.R.P. is, but thats coo'. I would recommend this tank to other people, but only if there using a high-tech gun like an angel, Cocker, Shockers, and Impulses. (it don't look or work to great on Mags) Sorry mag owners, the dang thing makes the gun back heavy even with a frop forward.
