Tiny (almost as small and light as my friends pmi 45/4500)
Price you get what you pay for
When i got this tank it was totally awesome. I brought it to my friends house and we compered tanks and he has a pmi 45/4500 and my tank is the smallest bit bigger and almost as light, this tank is amazing. But after having it for a while, i have one of the older versions, the pin got stuck down so i called cp and they are just going to send me a whole new thead set and pin to make up for it, how sweet is that.

This tank is great it is small and very lite. It also gets a lot of shots for how small it is. It has a 4 holed regulator that gives great air flow. It make smy maniac ego balance a lot better with the hopper. If you have the money BUY THIS!!!!

Tank covers don't fit well
Despite being 6 foot 2 inches tall, I seem to like really short setups for my playing style. The 48/4500 is about a full inch shorter than a 45/4500 Crossfire and about 7 ounces ligther overall.
The CP Air high pressure output reg easily keeps up with 15bps ramping and should be more than enough for most markers out there. Since no one really makes a cover for this new style of stubby tank, you probably won't find a cover that fits well at this point. I'm using a Redz cover that it's too long and not wide enough. It fits and looks decent as I shove the excess length towards the front of the tank around the regulator, but it's hard to get the cover on and off in case anyone wants to check the hydro.
I bought my tank in May 2007 online. The bottle had a March 2007 date on it making it less than 2 months old. Unlike others that have reported leaks around their gauges, mine has not leaked at all.
One of the first things I noticed about the reg itself is that the end cap with the threads for the ASA looks to be very easy to replace in case you drop it or otherwise destroy the threads. As others mentioned, it should also be pretty easy to adjust which direction the gauge and fill nipple end up pointing once you have it screwed all the way into the ASA. The valve pin is also designed with a very high flow in mind by the looks of it.
A great reg from a great company with a very light weight tank in a new, stubby design. If that's what you're looking for, this tank won't disappoint.

Hard to Find a Cover that Fits
I've owned and used the 48/4500 for three months, and the 68/4500 for three months.
I really liked the size and weight. It was almost a little to short for my 5' 6" frame, but adjusting the rail was all I needed to do. It's my favorite tank because it is so small and light.
I liked the size and weight of this tank as well, but more the size than the weight. I put a Myth regulator on this tank to get the length short enough for my 5'6" frame to shoot comfortably. That setup runs about 10.5" long. I am currently using this tank because I need to shoot more paint than the 48/4500 will allow.
If you need a shorter and lighter setup, these tanks will help you get that.

CP Air Tank 48/4500
Soon to be: APE Board
Great customer service
Maybe too small for some.
Lightest 45-48ci tank i ever held. sweet looking too bad it gets covered by the tank cover.
I bought this so i can have a extemly light step up because i play front.
I had no leaks the entire day. Just a heads up mine atleast didn't come with a fill nipple cover.
This is a great tank follow the money rule if the gun cost $450 then the tank should be 1/2 the price expect if the gun is a DM7 and cost $1300.

Small leak in gauge
Ok i got this tank for christmas and i was really excited. I had read about the CP tanks having small leaks in the gauge and mine did and it lost i think 150 psi in a day, so it was a very small leak. i let all the air out of the tank and put a a seal of teflon tape aroue the gauge and it has worked perfect since. i screwed this into my proto and the first thing i noticed was how light and compact and light my setup was. once i got out onto the field i realized that i could go forever on a tank, which is a combination of my gun and my tank.
Overall this is an amazing tank, and it is really nice to have a tank light enough and small enough to play the front, but with enough capacity to play back. I would reccomend this tank to anyone
