Lightweight, Color matching regulators, Just a great tank
Slow Guage when filling lol
I bought this tank at XPSL Event #3 in San Jose from the CP truck as i have 2 markers and at the time only had 1 air tank. I really loved the look of the CPs and everyone was raving about how light they were. So i picked one up to be the primary air system on my main marker. It was much lighter than my bulldog and the dust blue reg i got looks great. It hasnt let me down yet and i may eventually get a second one for my angel as i have now sold my bulldog lol.
If your looking for a great lightweight tank from a stand up company get this one.

Customer service - online manual
filtered fill nipple
position screw on the thread
i decided to get one since i read reviews about it and after comparing the length with other tanks online. Weight is not that big of a deal but length is. According to the CP website, the length is perfect for me. Now i can shoulder my setup pretty comfy. I had a good experience with their HPR and ASAs so why not give it a try and the design is so simple and it's rebuildable in case something goes wrong.
i got mine used and disassembled due to shipping regulations. It was so light that at first i thought the seller forgot to send in the regulator. he told me it was wrapped in some paper and good thing i haven't thrown out the box yet. after looking for it, i found it. I vacuum the tank and reg, put some teflon tape and loctite it and its good to go.
this thing is light and works flawlessly. Kept up with my ego, borg,Promaster w/out a problem. There's a locking screw on the thread so you can position the tank to the ASA - get the fill nipple out of the way. The length is perfect as well. PE and crossy 68 ci is longer to about 1"-1.5" and much heavier too.
EDIT: just to add on a couple of stuff. Anyway, seems like the light weight achieved by CP is due to the use of aluminum for the reg. This is good and bad. one day when i was hooking it up to a NON on/off ASA and tried to unscrew it, i bend the "neck" (threading) and made a small gap that leaks air (from the reg and tank). I finally had to screw it again and bend it in the opposite direction to keep the reg and tank straight again. Then I applied more teflon tape, loctite, o-ring on the threading and it works fine now.
NOW what pissed me off is that I emailed CP cust service to send my tank in. NEVER GOT A REPLY. It's been almost 3 weeks now. Good thing i solved the problem, otherwise i can't play paintball at all.
only issue i had is with the fill nipple - mostly the field's fault. Anyway i used the tank for quite a bit, then i played in this particular field. after the last fill, my CP fill nipple cover would be pushed back and after some pressure build up, it would "fart" - letting go of trapped air from the fill nipple. it never happened before and i suspect that the air source adapter from the field is dirty and somehow dirt is trapped in there causing it to leak. Finaly after 3-4 days, the tank emptied itself.
Okay, i figured that maybe after another fill, the dirt would loosen up and somehow get the tank working again. I was wrong. The next trip, i tried to fill the tank again. After 2000 psi, the leak is so great that it counter-pressured the air filling in. So getting past 2000 psi was impossible. I had to leave for work that day so did not have time to take apart the fill nipple.
The next weekend i played again with my friend. Before the game i bought a new fill nipple. So i started taking out the fill nipple and guess what - IT HAD A FILTER IN IT !!. There's an o-ring and a mesh looking thingee inside. Genius. It was dirty alright and the o-ring got so much dirt caked in there it was barely moving. I clean it up, assembled everything and tried to air it up. This time, no air is coming in - i looked at the fill nipple and it seemed like i over-tighten it a bit. I loosened it up a bit and wow, no more leaks and it can fill to 4000 psi. I was about to buy the Bob Long nipple with filter but man, good thing i was patient enough to check it. I just keep the extra nipple as back up.
anyway problem solved. the other bad thing is that the 32* nipple cover did not fit in the nipple. And the fill nipple material is pretty soft. After the last 3 fill, it was stripped. It still works and fill with no problem but ended up marring the CP nipple cover and now it's hard to put on or taken out. I used a rubber cover instead now.
Good light tank with fill nipple filter built in. Never talked to customer service but they provide manuals in their website.great tank even though it's expensive. Size is smaller than most competitors. I really think of this as my best investment in a tank and it would be a keeper.
Edit: Crappy customer service and soft tank reg. not so good combination CP.

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.
Nitro duck 70ci not as lite and is not as small i have a 48ci

Contract Killer grip
2 piece shaft barrel
cp 48ci tank
Gets a lot of shots considering it is so small
None so far
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!!!!
Crossfire tanks mostly, PMI Pure Energy, Air America, AGD Flatline, Kingmann Java, Centerflag, etc.

More Expensive than most
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.

Price. Some people have leaks in gauge. No 48/4500 tank cover made yet.
WOW!!! ok just gotta get that out
My first thoughts were
1. how stubby it was
2. how light it was
3.how tight the looks were.
So i went to fill her up and thought it would leak because most other cps tank do. Well what do you know, it doesn't leak. I screwed here on My pmr and shot a few rounds.. so far so good. then i let her rip, i noticed within seconds i was firing faster then i was with my crossfire tank. I absolutely love this tank. The 48/4500 tank is 9 inches long when screwed in on gun. 4 inches wide. and 2.00 lbs. Planet Eclipse and redz is the only company that makes a a 48/4500 as of April 25/2007.
as you can see there sold out most everywhere. so i would recommend getting one asap. unless you want to wait.
Get this tank, its the best out there...

Black Invert Mini;
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.
Pure energy carbon fiber 68/4500
45/45 dxs tank ( a bit heavier and the reg isnt as good)
Custom anno alias timmy, tadao board cp on/off and a 14'' freak barrel

good intake rate
Hey guys...so i saved up for one of these babies because i already had a light setup and my tank was wieghing me down. so i got one of these along with a cover and man did i tell the difference. my setup was at least half a pound lighter than what it was. when i played with it, i got about 950 with a full fill which isnt bad at all. you can play your bunker very tight with this and its so incredibely light.
If you are looking for a tank you should definitely go check one of these babies out....i'de say its the best tank on the market right now hands down

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
