I got this because I can't use c02. It is short so I can handel my marker better and it holds a lot of air. I get about 1850- 1900 shots out of this tank (my gun is tuned to pefection). It isn't vert light, so it adds weight to my already heavy set up. This isn't a big deal, but it would help with snap shooting and running. Don't know what else to say, its a tank.........

Weight (You wont really notice this at all)
This is a great tank. It has a great shot capacity and is very small. I personally think that peanuts look good on any gun. This tank keeps the air in the tank, WHERE IT BELONGS! It is also has a big gauge to see during game time, just in case. All in all i have had no problems AT ALL with this tank. BUY IT YOU WILL BE PLEASED!
I have had no problems with this tank at all. Buy it you will be very pleased.
Small but holds a lot of air.
Short Length gives good weight balance.
Was inconsitent at first (fixed)
The reason I like this tank so much is because of the weight balance it gives. It is lond enough so that when the gun is posted up againt your shoulder its not in you eye, but at the same time does not make the gun back heavy. That's not only because of its size but because its carbon fiber. I was worried about getting a reliable nitrogen tank, but this one did the job. I was kind of annoyed when it did shoot consistently at first but the guy who I bought it from (proshop tech.) exchanged it for me. He said the nipple was the problem cause it was bent (which I still don't understand). But the new one works and is consistent now.
Overall, this is a good tank to get. Depending on how much you want to spend on a tank. Just make sure you keep the threads and nipple protected because that's where the problem on my tank was.
I've only owned it for a month so far, but it is a great tank so far. It had only one problem with the nipple and consistency, but the proshop guy exchanged it and it works great now.

Price(220)- This is for all cf tanks, though, and it is worth it!
The crossfire tank that i have experience is the 70ci/4500psi LP (Blue Reg) (It uses a 450psi output pressure, in comparison to the HP reg, which is a 850psi output). I ordered my tank off the internet for 220 dollars, but now you can find it for 210 dollars. It arrived about 7 months ago. I have used it 2-3 times a week since then .It arrived wrapped in a soft protective foam. Then it was wrapped in bubble wrap, then it came double boxed. It was good knowing that the company cared if the tank got damaged or not! Anyways, here the review!
Looks, User friendliness, and first impression.
- Personally I think stubbies look awesome on guns! The crossfire I have has a blue reg (LP), but if you have a high pressure, it will be red. The tank has an extremely large and easy to read gauge. The actual bottle is a white-ish carbon fiber (note: this is a newer SCI bottle, crossfire started using these in 03, the older stubbies were 72/45 dark fiber GCI bottles) The label on the bottle has 70ci 4500 psi with the awesome crossfire logo on it. These tanks look great without anything on them, but even with a tank cover on you still see a blue/red/platinum band with crossfires logo on it!
-The crossfire 70/45 is really easy to use, just attach the fill nipple to the fill station and the tank is filled. Then just screw the tank into the asa of your marker and boom you're ready to go.
-My first impression of the tank is of extreme quality! The tank is very smooth and the threads were in perfect shape. The fill nipple was all the way in and not dirty (unlike my PMI tank).
As soon as i got my tank i ran to my local paintball store and got a cool, slow fill to 4500psi. To see if i has any leak i had to restrain myself and i let the tank sit a week to see if it had any leaks. After the week the pressure feel to about 4450 psi. That was the best surprise this tank had for me! On the contrary, my old PMI tank lost about 2000psi in a week due to a whole leak from the reg, which i rebuilt and then had PMI rebuild it and it still didn't help. The gauge is also the most accurate gauge on the market, some of my other tanks were off by 300 or more psi!
Capacity and size:
Whether you like a stubby tank or a regular size tank is your decision. I personally like stubbies, because i am a front man and it makes my setup very small, but i still can get the amount of shots i would get off of a 68/45. My stubby is 10.75 inches long and 4.25 circumference. This is compared to a 68/45 which is 12.25-12.5 inches long. My stubby is about 3 pounds filled. A 68/45 is about 2.5 filled. In real life, unless you have no muscle, .5 pounds you won't even feel the difference. I would rather sacrifice size for weight. When i first got my tank, i took my qev off to see efficiency of this tank with my ion. I got about 1450 off of my first fill. Sweet. The next fill i got 1400 shots! Sweeter! I then installed my qev again. The first fill with the qev i got 1700 shots! Woah! Then when i got my L7 bolt, I installed it and wanted to see about how many shots i got . I got 1850 shots! This is what i love about a stubby. I can play front with a nice tight setup and if i want to play outlaw ball i can get it filled and be fine for a day to play around with my friends!
As many paintballers already know, crossfire makes some of the best regs in the business. They have a wonderful recharge rate of 10ms! I have an ion which i run at like 120-140psi depending on what fps i need. This LP tanks works fine on my ion. Even if you have a stock ion, you can run this LP tank on it. I have absolutely no shoot-down at 17bps, even when i didn't have my qev and L7 bolt. This reg is made out of top quality stainless steel! One note is that if your reg is creeping (if you blow your 1800psi burst disk, this is a sign of reg creeping) or you have a reg problem (which i doubt you will, these regs rock!) you have to send it back to crossfire to be rebuilt or fixed. Crossfire regs aren't user serviceable.
Condition and Strength:
I have used this tank for 7 months now, and you wouldn't even know it! If you looked at this tank now, you would think it was close to brand new. The fibers are fine, with no chips, cuts, and unraveling. My regulator still looks brand new and the threads are fine. These tanks are really strong, but I highly highly highly recommended a tank cover. I mean you paid 220 for a tank, 25 dollars isn't that much. I recommend the dye rhino tank cover, it looks stylish, protects your tank, and provides a grip on your shoulder. A few of my friends have used their crossy tank without a cover and nothing went wrong, but i really don't recommend it. I also recommend a thread protector, so if you drop your tank the threads won't be ruined. With a tank cover and thread protector, and if you feel the need a fill nipple cover, your tank will be fine!
This is my favorite tank i have ever used! The company is a great company. They have the best customer service and everybody who works their is really nice! The crossy 70/45 is small, has a great reg, a huge shot capacity, its strong, and has a great gauge(most accurate on the market. It is expensive, but it is worth it. I would give this tank a 9.5 just because you can't rebuild the reg yourself! This tank is so durable, i haven't had any leaks, thread proplems,fiber problems, or reg problems. Buy it!

I put this tank on my imp last summer I screwd it onto the check it unimount and it brought me closer to the gun it can help you get tighter for better coverage while playing
small light and compact. and you kno its good cause its made by crossfire
This small tank will help you when you play front to keep you tighter
Evil Scion 68/5k - Enough capacity, but not tight enough making it uncomfortable
45/45 ( I think the brand is Charleton or something ) - Nice and tight, but not enough capacity.
Steel 47/3k - Why?
PMI 68/3k - Just the basic fiber wrap tank. Nothing special and not tight enough.

Well, I finally got my Crossy 70/45 a while back. It's great! I can play just as tight with this as a 45/45 but can get as many shots (actually more) than my 68/5k. The crossy is actually a little shorter than my 45/45. The pictures that I have seen of this tank don't do it justice. It is MUCH smaller in person than it looks in the pics. And the cool part is that it isn't as big around is I expected so no matter how you shoulder it you won't get a chicken wing. From a distance it would actually be hard to distinguish it from a 45/45.
It really isn't as hard to find a tank cover for it as some people say it is. Dye makes a cover for it because they also make 70/45 tanks. One of the best parts of this tank is the Crossy LP Reg. The recharge is very fast. I've heard that you can use LP Crossfires on Egos (which run at very high pressures). I haven't found a better tank. The size, capacity, weight, looks, and recharge rate are all great.
Plain and simple, if you like the size of 45/45s but not the capacity, buy a crossy 70/45.
You will like it. I'll give it a 9 since perfection isn't something you'll find in paintball.

Holds alot of air
Good for playin front
Mine was inconsistent
LP doesn't keep up on my timmy
A bit heavy
I picked this up from some ksid for $140. for the money i paid i was not impressed. i filled to about 3000psi put it on my timmy and started to rip on it.i noticed that it would start to loose psi and slow down and i was shooting. i put an hpa tank on and it was perfect. the stub was also inconsistent.i got +/-6 or 7 with the cp reg at the crono. not happy. the used my hpa tank and i got +/-2 or 3 with the cp reg. i dont know if mine was just bad but it was NOT worth $140. the compactness of it was nice though. on a full fill it was heavier than my pmi 68/45.
This is not worth it at all unless your gun will not work without. if u get a stub make sure it is hpa.

WOW!! I been using a 88ci 3000psi tank from pure energy for a long time. When I bought my ego, I knew I needed a smaller tank but not just any tank, a tank that can hold enough air like my 88ci. Well, lucky me, I receive my stubb tank on my B day and tested it out as soon as I could on the field. MY GOD!! This tank made my gun soooo compact. When on the field, I never got shot on my gun or hopper cause I was much more tighter on the bunkers. The air, I was amazed. I did not have to fill my tank frequently as my 88ci. Highly recommend this tank...besides, crossfire is known for their very good tanks and most pros use them FOR SOME REaon....cause they WORK.
If you take paintball serious as a sport, buy this tank. If you see paintball as just a pass time...dont get this tank because of the price.
just a wgp 3000psi tank and it doesnt even match up against the crossfire

Gauge could be a bit more accurate.. hard to find..
This tank is GREAT.. now I know that there are maybe a couple better tanks out there (empire fuel), but for the money, this is the best that money can buy. The tank is smaller than a 68/4500 and hold more air at the same time. the concistency is really good and I did not encounter any shoot down when the tank was low.. Now I suppose the pressure gauge could be a little more accurate because it seemed to me to be a little behind what was acutally in the tank, but other than that , this tank is a great choise and I would recommend this tank to anyone who is interested in buying one and can actually find it in stock somewhere... (good luck online..) Buy it.. Im giving it a 9 as the Empire tank is about a 9.5.
