The Throttle Preset is a technologically advanced yet simple hassle-free regulator and is quickly becoming the favorite style among professionals today. The Throttle Preset is factory set to an efficient 850 psi. This unique design provides maximum unrestriced air flow at a constant output pressure which is more than suitable for any marker available today. As with most preset systems, this regulated air system should be used in conjuction with a good in-line reg, such as our Hyper Reg, so all you have to do is just screw in and play.
The Dye Throttle Preset Air System is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Overall this tank is awesome. I have had it for a little over six months and yet to have a problem with this system. It is very light weight and a lot more durable than other tanks like it. The best part about it is that it has a very precise flow of air. I shot from 50-100 shots over the chrono with my Smart Parts Ion and experieced only tiny changes in rate of fire. I shot from 290-294,which is very consistent. Another thing is that I had always used CO2 until i got my new gun and it was very easy for me to set up and use.
Great air system. I think this is such a good product because it is very easy to use and extremely light weight.

None, but I could have died. Read below.
This is the first compressed air tank ive used. It worked great. I didn't even have to refill. The regulator worked great. I had no problems with the o-ring maybe those who had problems with it didn't oil the o-ring. Some say it cost too much and thats why not many people have them but its only $30-50 more that a crossfire. The only thing that happens is the threads grind on the gun's threads when I unscrew it from the gun I think its cause there is pressure while unscrewing it.
WARNING!!! I bought this tank and it worked fine, but when I took it off the gun the regulator unscrewed from the tank. I could have died.
This is an amazing tank. If you can buy it you won't need another tank ever. Be careful make sure yours is not defective. I'll give it a 9 only because it could have killed me.

Large tank (91ci)
Good price $225
Doesn't have loc tight on it (expalained in body)
I got this tank today and i thought it was a good tank cause its dye.But! After 4 hours of use i took of my ion and put on my e99 to test it worked great.until i took of and the regulator came off the tank. took back to store and got loc tight on it to seal the tank.
I'll update this next time i test it to see if it works.
I just tested it again on my e99 and it works great now the tank and regulater are sealed now.
update 1/15/06 broke again peace of junk my opinion
update 1/16/06 dye has given me another tank and is checkin out my old one. It might of just been a dud but ill change my oppion when the tank stays in 1 piece!
I recommend this tank for any gun that can use nitrogen. But get loc tight on it when u buy it or before your next fill!

32 Degrees Drop Forward
Dye Throttle 45/4500
Fill Nipple Sucked
Not Many Shots
I bought this tank because i wanted a very light nitrogen tank. This was deffinately lighter than the pure energy's and a little less than the crossfires. The only thing i dont like about this product is that on my first fill with it the fill nipple leaked like crazy. But i got it fixed for free in about 5 minutes at my local store. Now i havnt had a problem with it. Now the only thing i dont like about it is that a 45 4500 tank doesnt have many shots at all in it, but thats my fault for buying a small tank.
If you want a dye tank i would get one. If you only plan on shooting 600 shots than get this tank. But a 68 tank would be good.

70ci "STUBBY" is Very Compact
HOLDS MORE THEN 68ci!-10 bucks more
None DA STUBBY OWNS ALL!
I recently gave into all of the hype and bought an ION. It is very sick. I had a 68/4500 crossfire on it and it was just way to long and since i only play front i thought why not give da stubby a try. i would have got crossfire cause a da price, but they r backordered 4 ever it seems like do I went with DYE. I love the tank. I put a flame drop and on/off on the ion and man is this baby really compact. I have had no problems and get TONS of coments on how sick my tank is, for under 20 bucks more then a 68 ci you get a compact STUBBY tank (if you get the 70ci) that is more compact and cooler then a normal tank. GO BUY ONE.
BUY A STUBBY, they are compact, made by DYE and not to much more then a 68 ci. I love mine and it fits my set-up very nicely.
It is a sweet nitro tank. Dye make good tanks. The trottle make the gun quieter. I got this tank for two hundred and fifty dollars. The carbon fiber makes the tank lighter. It akes you run faster because the tank is lighter. This tank hold a lot for air. It is a 4500 PSI/ 71 cu. You must have this tank.
Very good tank. On the three different guns I've used this on (Ion, Cocker, and Timmys) I've experienced no shootdown. It's also amazingly consistent, one of the best I think on the market. I have a 91/4500, and I think its just a tad heavy for the size, but nothing too distracting. I love this tank, and its another awesome tank from Dye. Also, the price isn't too bad.
I would definitely buy this tank. Its a good buy for the price, and it won't let u down.
blue spyder shutter( soooo much cooler than the red one)
32 degrees spring kit
It has a good reg on it and its an all around good tank
The reg is made of aluminum
As stated above this is all around a pretty good tank, its decently light and it does its job well but since the reg is made of aluminum the threads strip. This problem can be solved with an on/off drop forward such as a smart parts angle drop or a wgp torpedo drop. I also had some problems with it leaking but that was just because the fill nipple was loose.
Its a good tank but I would definately recomend a crossfire

Appears to be high quality which is very deceiving.
Leaked the 1st time i got it filled.
So I had heard from a couple of friends and read in some forums that these tanks have been know to leak on occasion. So of course I come up on a brand new 70/4500 "peanut" at my local pro shop for $200 and I buy it thinking "oh those were just rare exceptions, every Dye makes is great and this tank will be no exception." Of course with my luck the 1st time I get it filled not only does it start leaking out of the fill nipple, but out of the gauge too! I could'nt believe it, there was no way I had gotten a lemon, but I did. Needless to say I'm taking this piece of junk back ASAP and going back to a Crossfire.
I have read and heard of far too many instances of these things leaking. Don't buy one of these pieces of junk for any price, except maybe free and then you gotta consider what it's gonna cost you to fix it when it leaks. Please learn from my and many others mistakes and don't buy this lemon. I have used Dye products for many years now and something like this from a company known for making such superior products is ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE and for that I give it a 1.

I shoot a Mech Orracle with a CP reg. I will never get my ROF up high eneough to test this air system to it's limits. I have used this tank alot in the last 6 months and never had any problem with it. No leaks, nothing.
The finish on the tank and the regulator is supuerb. Very smooth and black. I did feel the need to get a tank cover to protect it. I don't know how durable the finich is, but with the cover I have no worries.
It's light weight, good looking, and consistent. Shootdown was never an issue. You will want to get a tank cover though to protect that sweet finish.
I would reccomend this product to anyone looking for a HPA tank, this or a Crossfire.
