70CI carbon fiber-wrapped tank with regulator, 5 year hydro. This tank is about 1/2in shorter than a 45/4500. Compact size for the front player and plenty of capacity to play mid. weight 3.05 diameter 4.25 length 10.5.
The Crossfire Stub Air System is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Ok, I got this tank for Christmas and I was very very excited. Out of its cardboard box with the cool logo on it it was wrapped neatly in bubble wrap. It looks very nice and is quite small so I can hold my gun very close.
The first time I got this thing filled It leaked it was leaking from the burst disk and by the next day it lost over 1500psi, despite my best efforts of lodging silly putty in the hole to preserve some of the air. I called crossfire and the were very nice and told me exactly what to do I packed it and shipped it, I received it in 4 days, quite fast turn around. After that they sent it back saying they rebuilt the reg and approximately 9 fills later it leaked from the fill nipple. This was annoying because I had to call myself out after 1 minute of play and not even an entire hopper used.
Over all this product has treated me fairly nicely the only reason I give it a 7 is because I missed a day of possible playing which come about monthly. This tank is above average though. I say get it if you dont mind some occasional problems, I probably got a bad one.

Ive heard weight? I dont notice though...
Good, solid tank, made by crossfire so you know its reliable, one of the fasted recharge rates as well. Its a good size, i like the feel, and i easily get 1500 shots a fill. I would recommend getting a tank cover to protect this.
Another strength is the 5 year hydro. Just means you dont need to go through the hassle of getting it hydro'd.
OVerall its a good tank, its n2, lots of shots, what else is there to say.
I have the 88ci 4500psi Stubby. This thing is a beast to carry around about mid day at the field. Yes it great that you dont have to go to the fill station maybe only once or twice durring the whole day of play. When I first got the tank I thought wow its the same length of a 68 just a bit thicker than a 68. It was light when it was empty. When they filled it. It was more along the lines of 3-4 pounds. If you like alot of air and less time at the fill station then a big tank is great. The consistancy of the reg is nice.
Its great if you dont mind the weight. I give it a 8 for the weight.
This tank is very very small. I dont think you can understand ohw much smaller these tanks are unless you see tehm in person. it seems like it is half the size of a regualr tank. my freinds is a 70 ci tank and it is really not even that much fatter. i would say like a inch fatter. i dont know how its possible for it to be bigger tank and smaller sized. but it must be. its light, and very very short. this could be a good or bad thing....depending on teh bottom line setup.
If you want a short tank, this is for you. its the same crossfire, its just rediculously short.
Macdev the best but i only got to test it :(

Not as light as i hoped..........
I own 2 of these tanks and I love them both. They have an amazing recharge rate (10ms i think) and can keep up with anything (Macdev is 8ms recharge). They are very small and wide which IMO is easier to hold under/prop up against my shoulder. They can be used by a front or mid player. The only thing I didnt like about this tank was that the first time i got one, it was for my A-5. When i picked it up, it felt nearly the same weight as my old 20oz, which was kinda a bummer because the reason i switched to nitro besides all of the other benefits was because the tank was supposed to be ligher.
This is a perfect tank for a mid or front player, it is small and keeps a tight profile for front players, and it is large enough to play mid. Id give it a 9.5 but i cant so it gets a 10.
If you have the money, Id reccomed a MacDev Legionair

black 05 Speed, Infinite barrel halo b with victory board, lp 70ci 4500psi crossfire stub tank, check-it unimount, (i am getting the new tadao board)
Get lots of shoots
no problems yet (knock on wood)
Ok i love my tank. I am small short arms so this tank is perfect or for those of you who like the gun closer to you this is it. It is a little heavyer then the other tanks but its a stubby. I love this tank i think crossfire is the best in the world but it was pretty spendy but totaly worth it!!
Get it if you have the money totaly worth every penny! I love mine
I switch from a Steel Pure energy to the crossfire stubby for a lighter tank and boy did I get one. The Crossfire stubby is very light and the best tank Ive ever played with. Although the gauge is a little big which might be a problem if you are using small drops but its very minor. I paid $249.99 for this tank Canadian which is fairly expensive but its definitely worth it. The tank is very consistent compared to some of the tanks Ive tried. This tank is definitely worth a look if you are in the market for a tank.
Great tank from a great company. Definitely worth every penny.
Black Proto Matrix
Check it unimount
crossfire 70/4500 stubby
Not alot really
Only hard to find
well i bought this after i bought my proto matrix. I got his tank becuase i just was not getting enough shots out off my other one since i had to refill it often. This tank is perfect for a front or mid player which i am. Its is small and compact so you can play tight but also allows you to get alot of shots off of one fill. I would say i got 7pods and a hopper off of 1 fill give or take alittle. The reg on this is very consistent and even more consisten with my proto reg.
Overall this is a great tank and i would deffiently recomend it to anyone wanting a nice size tank for a mid or front player.

Nice feel with uni drop
Best tank for the price
Heavy (kinda, only beacuse all nitrogen tanks are heavy)
I bought a low pressure crossfire stubby tank about 3 weeks ago and I bought my new smart parts ion just this past weekend, I had no problems with my new gun and tank whatsoever. It felt so good having something that didn't have any problems. I bought the stubby because I'm small and it fits nice and tight on my shoulder, and my ion makes it even better for snap shooting. I had one minor problem but it was fixed easily, make sure that you screw in the tank all the way (this applies to all tanks) or else your gun will drop off or shootdown or whatever you like to call it.
Great tank I recommend it to anybody who doesnt want to spend $300-$400 on any max flo or legion air or whatever those are called. GREAT TANK!
Price (compared to A.I.R.)
Just all around good
This air system is one of the best i have ever used. Even in all temp. it still gave me very constant air. Also it has a very light weight. This must be a good tank because lots of pro paintballers use it, so it must be good. You know? I would recommend this to most rookie paintballers and higher. If this is you first purchase of air/co2 i would not recommend it. First begin with co2. Then maybe go to crossfire. Or Pure Energy.
Highly recomended for most players. Just make sure you do your research on what PSI, and size you need.
