Odd size dove tail!
Much has been written about the Evil Scion Air, both good and bad. Personally i've never had an issue with mine so............
The whole package is very stylish from the regulator to the bottle, i think the push button on/off is a cool feature, with my only gripe being the odd sized dovetail, a real pain if you use 2 markers and only have 1 bottle.
Performance wise the Scion has good capacity 68c 5000k and one of the quickest re-charge rates in the business (17ms as i'm aware) so can keep up with all todays high end markers. The regulator is also very easy to service (once the bottles degassed), although the manual doesn't give you too much information on how too, or what to use when servicing it.
When i finally decided to pull mine to pieces, i found corrosion on some of the internal components, bonnet, bellville springs, adjuster and retaining bearings. To be honest i don't think it had sufficient lubrication from the start and has been affected by the ingress of moisture. Needless to say it got thoroughly cleaned and re-lubed, with Dow33 for the o rings,springs, push on/off and main shaft, then a small amount of silicone grease inside the piston bore.
Since then i've had no more corrosion issues and it might explain why some people have had problems with air leaks....even so mines never missed a beat.......
Great package from Evil, if you do buy one pull it apart first and lube it.

CO2-much worse than High Pressure, not as accurate and harder to fill up.
ion, red dusted cp rake trigger,red dusted cp rail and on/off asa, dye ultralite-black dusted back and red dusted tip, redz cam lock, halo b with rip drive, and 5000psi evil tank
Large fill size, looks, luxfer wrapped
I got this tank when i got my ion a year ago. It is very good and it has a pure energy regulator on it. It is 5000 psi which means i can practice at home with bunkers. I think evil is a good company to trust with air supply and the pure energy regulator boosts the brand name and preformance. I highly recommend this tank to any1 who wants to practice or shoot in their backyards when your not at fields.

-Pure energy 68/3000
-Halo B w/v35 and rip drive
-Evil 45/5000 tank

-Mine is a little different and it was cheaper
-Had a leak when i got it
-Hard to take of at first
I got this tank for christmas along with my Proto Rail, the tank was 260 dollars (had a standard regulator not any fancy ones). When I filled it up and put it on my gun it shot great good refill rate and pretty consistant, when I went to take off the tank it wouldn't come off, it was stuck on my gun! When i finnaly got the tank off the pin got stuck in the open position releasing air, put the tank on my gun and emptied the tank. Went to the store and all it took was some lube inside of the regulator and it was fine after that it was fine. The Proto rail with this tank, and a halo B makes the gun perfectly balanced on the trigger, only tank I have found that does that.
Buy it, it is very good I havent tried out the more expensive regulator but the one I have is awsome. I give it a nine because I did have some dried up orings that was easyly fixed and compared to pure energy is a little expensive.

Need to use Evil rail
I got this tank already on my marker when I bought it, so I didnt have to worry about the installation features. I do know that you will most likely remove your markers regulator and put a Gas Thru grip, which costs money, so thats one point against it so far. The tank itself is quite heavy, I noticed a huge impact on my shocker. You also need to use the Evil rail, so it doesnt allow for many options with drops or other rails. The tank also does not come off of the rail, so you have to fill it by handing over your entire marker to get it filled. This is not a huge problem mind you, because most of the time you would have your marker with you anyways. The on/off can be somewhat difficult to press at high pressure, and it also needs to be oiled to work properly, so remember to maintain that along with your marker. The tank's regulator is incredibly easy to use, it has dials for the PSI as well as the air in your tank. The rail is very nice, and very comfortable. The fact that it has a regulator built in allows you to remove weight from the rest of your marker. The tank is incredibly consistent. Firing +/-18 BPS there is hardly any drop off. I have had no leaks from the tank whatsoever, and it has a firm design. I enjoy the fact that the tank is always attached to my marker, because I can never leave it behind or forget it, its one less thing to worry about. The regulator is top notch, I havent noticed any drop even at high rates of fire. The on/off works incredibly effectively. My friend has a tank with an on/off, and he hadnt used his marker for a couple weeks, and his tank had lost over 500 PSI when he picked it up again. I've left the Scion sitting for 3 weeks, my PSI hasn't dropped at all, its still the same as the day I finished firing it.
There are a fair amount of weaknesses noted with the Scion
However, the positives are not overly exerted in my review in an attempt to keep it unbiased. The tank works, and works well. The rail is nice, the regulator is flawless, dropoff doesnt exist, the on/off works effectively. The rail and tank are built to last, and I can't see anyone having any problem with them.
If you have the extra money to put at Gas Thru in, or if your marker doesnt have a regulator this tank is for you. If you need something lighter, or you want your markers regulator, rail, or drop, the Scion will not work for you look into a Crossfire.
I love my Scion, there is a lot of baggage that comes with it, but once its setup, it works and it works well and you will not be disappointed with it. Guarenteed.
The Scion is a great tank if your will to do some extra work to your marker to get everything running smoothly. The setup takes some time, but once complete its one of the better tanks out there.

-evil 5000psi 88ci tank
Well its 5000psi and lasts pretty long (looks sweet too). also, its very light
I have the 88ci and its a beast to carry on the gun.
I havent had any problems with this tank yet and i hopfully never will. my advice is that if you find one for under 260$, then get it. other than that, its probly not worth your money. although mine is big, a drop forward fixed that and now it feels great on my gun.
Like i said, if you can find it for under 260$, then get it. overall, its a pretty nice tank considering i got it for like 209$ i give it an 8.

Size, company, air efficiency, fits asa's easily
i got this tank about 6 months ago when i got my new gun. It is a great tank so far. I tis 5000 psi which is great because u never have to worry about how much air goes into ur tank. IT is a good tank and i like it very much. However, it is very expensive. I still think it could go down a little in price. 50 word minimum, blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Sorry......
Great tank, air efficiency, and the size is great.
cp roller trigger
68/5000 evil scion
did i mention light
None so far
I got this tank at my local shop boston paintball. i took it home and tested it out in my backyard. with an ion i was able to get around 1100 shots off. the tank holds a ton of air for the size. the only bad thing is that none of the fields in the area can fill to 5 thousand. but still, great tank i highly recommend it. next to the steel tank, this thing weighs next to nothing.
Ok, i had tested this thing on my friends gun at owens. He was all happy and excited to try this on his new ion. He went to the register to get it filled and I heard the loudest explosion ever. The tank blew up!!!!!!!The burst disk and the whole top area had blown right off and dented the wall very deep. My friend being the stubborn kid he is returned it to pbwiz and got another one. The next day the exact same thing happened at Osg(a whole different arena.) This thing is bad news.
First off, I was impressed with the way this system functions. Mounted on my shocker, I get tight with the gun, but not too tight like I've had in the past. The regulator is easy to adjust along with turning on and off with just the simple push of a button. Even though Evil says you can use this as the only regulator in a setup, I choose to use it with a CP regulator also. I have the Scion set at 500psi and my CP set at 170psi which keeps me shooting in the high 260's. (I mainly play at an indoor field with a 275fps max)
Next, the problems I have with this tank. From the first time I played with it, I got a fill at the end of the day so I could still tweak my board setting later in the week for fine tuning. A 4500 fill on sunday night with the reg turned off, turned into a 1500 fill about 26 hours later. I asked a teammate that was using one also and he said his did the same thing. I went back to the shop that I bought it from and they said that was normal for a tank to slowly loose pressure, that it was a "safety precaution" with the air system. I asked another person that has a Scion and they said they have no problems like this with theirs. Also, over time I noticed that the adjusting cap on the front of the regulator where the adjusting screw is in has rusted inside the threads. So if you end up getting one of these, I recommend putting a thin layer of slick honey or some other lube to keep it from rusting. Finally, you can't use an aftermarket rail with this tank. I have yet to find one that fits the dove tail milled into this regulator. At least Evil gives you a rail that fits this tank. Even though it's basic and far from great, a little blue lock-tight goes a long way with this rail. All 3 screws (2 into the grip frame and one in the front locking the reg on the rail) should have some lock-tight placed on it. Remember to use BLUE and not RED or you will have a heck of a time trying to remove it later.
They say that nothing is perfect and this holds true with the Scion. I've learned to take the good with the bad, and the bad doesn't outweigh the good. The fact that the adjustment screw area is rusting out and the tank doesn't hold a fill doesn't over shadow the fact that this is a small, lightweight setup that is easy to use. Going by the checks and balances, I rate this system as a 7 because it's problems are strong enough not to rate it an 8, 9, or 10 but they are not strong enough to rate this system lower being that it is slightly above average.
I received this tank in a trade. My first thought was woah it looks so awesome. After I went to the local store grabbed an air fill and tested it. It was putting out a good pressure so I didn't touch it. It was a bit heavier and longer than most tanks.
Keeps up with my gun
No shoot down at output of ~400 psi
Price if bought new or at MSRP
Get this tank it really rocks. If you are a sissy and can't take any extra weight do yourself a favor and buy a pump w/ 12 grams. The added weight and money is TOTALLY worth it.
