I used to own a NitroDuck 68ci 3000 PSI tank. Nothing wrong with it really, it just didn't last long enough on the speedball field (especially with how much I shoot in a day). So, I bought this... same size, but 4500 PSI.
Nova 700, it's impossible to get upgrades for it, but it's still great when stock.
Took Very little time for me to set up, I just had it filled, stuck my remote hose on, and I was ready to go. No special instruction needed.
It's the perfect size, 68 ci 4500 psi. You could, in theory, get a 114 ci 3000 psi tank for cheaper, but those things are waaay too bulky to even run remote with.
No problems with the gages yet, although for some reason the staff never fills it all the way to 4500 psi. Field policy or something like that.
Actually, almost nothing! When you "turn it off," it makes a loud and suprising noise that scared the Bejesus out of me when I first did it, but that's about it.
It's kind of difficult to adjust the output pressure. You have to have a lot of forearm strength to turn your allen key in such a tight area.
The price is somewhat high, but I think it's worth every penny.
Buy it if you're someone who's played for about a year and who goes to the gym at least once a decade.
Every screw in and most railmounts, i love my dynaflow
a bunch, my primary is an 04 superstock
User rebuildable, consistant, fast recharge
Im not sure on how long ittl last
I bought this reg used on a 90. the tank itself is way to large for me, but i love the reg. When i got it, the on off o rings were leaking, and the piston ones were going, so i had to rebuild it. Rebuilding it was extremely easy(though the shipping on the kit was slow). Once i got it all up and running, it was a great reg. The only time it fell out of adjustment was when it was low to prevent shootdown(and it worked). It has ultra fast recharge, and consistancy. I also like how you dont need an asa for it.

I've buy two dynaflow on e-bay and I'm happy with these regulator. It's a very good way for a LP projet. I have nothing to say of bad on it. You must grease that, and after play. One time, one of my two dynaflow had a problem, and I've ask to centerflag to help me and they have help me very well. They have a very good service. The recharge rate is very impressive too.
Buy it, it's not expensive and you have one of the best regulator in the world.

I was looking at this tank (and other similar systems) for almost a year, and managed to find it on sale for $180. I snatched it right up, and threw it on my marker. The performance is unreal. It's extremely lightweight, and just the right size for my marker. The consistency and recharge rate were amazing too. Only problem I have is that the guages are too big, to begin with... but neither work unless the tank is on. Other folks who wrote reviews complain about the pop when the tank is turned off... it's not nearly as loud or annoying as other people make it out to be. Anyway, this system is far better than tanks twice it's price. If you can find a good deal, don't let it pass!
wierd gauge operation.
consistent..... for the most part.- see review.
well i bought this used on Ebay. and being the skeptical and cautious buyer that i am, as soon as i received it i went to my pro shop to have them take a look at it. other than a small chip on the rail mount, (which I was aware of when i purchased it) the reg. and tank (68 4500) were in excellent condition! so off to the scuba shop to fill it! One small problem, upon trying to mate the fill nipple to the quick disconnect of the compressor, the technician told me the fill nipple was too large. this surprised me as there is some kind of standard that these things go by, however this one was too large. and he said he COULD get it on but wouldn't be able to get it off, thus screwing me out of a reg and him out of an expensive scuba quick disconnect.(well he told me they're expensive) so back to the pro shop we go! for $12 dollars i got a new fill nipple (I thought they were cheaper lol) and upon asking my pro shop guy for an adjustable wrench to install it with he said he'd just install it for FREE!!! sweet. after goofing around for 10 minutes for the loctite to set I made my way back to the scuba shop! round two: FREE FILL! my first time going in there and they tech says the register is tied up so have a nice day! awesome! then i noticed that the gauges didn't seem to be working. he said that it has to be turned on for the gauges to come on.
**NOTE: DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, TURN ON THE TANK IN YOUR 2 DOOR HONDA WITH ALL THE WINDOWS ROLLED UP. IT HURTS REALLY BAD!**
so back to the pro shop we go, half deaf and a newly filled tank. well evidently dynaflow's have to be hooked up to your marker and turned on in order for the gauges to read. i probably could have just called for this one :-P so i went home and installed the tank and did the macro lines and what do ya know? the gauges work! sweet.
** On The Field**
after setting the output to 500 psi i went to the chrony station. 310 fps! before using co2 i was only shooting ~270 and that was after screwing in velocity a bit. so i backed it out to ~275-280 fps and played a few rounds. its was great. I did notice that the on/off is VERY LOUD when degassing. while playing i looked at my output pressure and wha??? 800 psi? thats not right! but i didn't want to lower it. evidently after reading some more reviews about the regulator it for some reason bumps up output pressure when tank pressure is at or below around 1000 psi. bad for tourneys unless you have a really good in-line reg. i didn't think to chronny it after the game but im sure it was hot. it lasted me the whole day anyway.(gotta love cockers)
Well, my on/off broke a while back. I would fill the tank up, push on, and it would dump the whole tank through the on/off valve. This happened twice. luckily the scuba shop I went to did'nt charge me for both times. The first time cuz they did'nt recognize me and they usually give first time customers free hpa fills (on paintball tanks only) and the second time out of pity. I checked the burst disk but it looked fine. I considered sending it in to centerflag to get the body replaced with a new one ( I have the older style) but my friendly proshop hpa guru told me to lube up the o-rings on the on/off. I never thought of that. so about 10 minutes and a little bit of vaseline later i went back to the scuba shop to fill it up. YAY it does'nt dump! (and a free fill cuz they still did'nt recognize me! haha) Well if any of you ever have trouble w/ an on/off valve try this first! I still give it a 9 for durable o-rings that are able to take the abuse of 68 ci of high pressure air wizzing past them TWICE and need only a little bit of vaseline to get them back in shape!
-recharge rate sufficent (I have a mech cocker after all)
-easy to push on/off but it is LOUD!
I had a bad fill nipple but the previous owner could have replaced the origonal with that one. who knows.
-Weird output pressure system
-Overall very nice regulator

Like everyone else says, pressure goes up as the tank goes down.
Good Product. My Emag loves to eat air and the Dynaflow keeps up with the Emag's demands. I had the tank trouble free and leak free for over a year. Then the rail mount broke on the reg. Not to worry though, for $101, Centerflag gave me a new regulator with the new style rail mount. I have had no problems with this reg so far.
Good tank. If you have a gun that has to run at high pressure, this is the tank. I run my Emag @ 900 psi.
IT is a great product made by a great company. Centerflag really knows the stuff from the top of their head. There is no wait on the phone for technical support. Centerflag Technical Support never has wait on the phone and is very very helpful. Try it to see.
The tank itself is a great tank as it is light and is manageable. It works perfect for my matrix since it can take low pressure input so the turn up on the pressure does not affect my performance much as it does save me gas as well.
It is hard to use with a high pressure marker since it's output pressure turns up when air runs low. Need to refill all the time.
The dove tail mount does break easily. Mine is already broken but if you consult with Centerflag what they recommend for you to use, it will save you a great deal of time and money.
Great product and great support. Nothing much you can ask for.

Good recharge rate, 5 yr Hydro Test
I really like this tank any day of the week when someone asks me what tank they should get i recomend this one. It has no drop off. Very steady at the chrono. I really cant think of anything bad to say about it. My only really problem is that before i even got it the lip on the fill got a ding in it. But it still works great. So fair no problems.
If you want a good cheap tank this is it. I got mine for 185. I recomend it to any new person looking for a good tank.
I ordered this tank as part as the 2k1 lcd/dynaflow package from pbgear. I own an angel and a tricked 2k cocker. I get about +-2fps with both guns. This tank is extremely consistent and has a great recharge rate. The centerflag drop foward makes my gun comfy although i got the 88ci version. When i first recieved the tank, it had a small leak. However, i called up centerflag and they immediately repaired it. The on/off button is cool, whenever u turn the tank off, it makes a loud pop(scares the hell outta people). The tank is also easy to adjust, just stick in an allen wrench and turn.
The tank is a bit heavy(but i got the 88 version). It uses a dovetail mount, which means u cant use other cradles. However, the centerflag 5" df works great. When the tank gets low in pressure, it tends to creep up in output pressure. No big deal, by then u need to refill anyway.
Simple and easy to use! Good choice if u are looking for a high end adjustable tank. Excellent customer service.
I have a 68/4500 on my Angel LCD and it is great. I like the on/off button, it is so easy to operate. The adjustable regulator is great too. I have it set at like 625 psi. I can play all day on one fill easy.
The design of the regulator makes it tough to use a cradle. But I just used some ingenuity and made my Kapp drop zone fit it perfectly.
I think it is a great tank and definitly worth the money. I would buy this tank if I had it to do over again. I don't like the regulator at all on the smart parts tanks.
