Shots per fill question

Helping a friend select an air system and a gun. They are looking at buying a new stock TM-7. That part is pretty much set in stone. However there is some wiggle room with the air system. They would really like to go with a 13CI/3000 tank, but would like to know how many shots they can get out of it. From an initial search of MCB, I see that the mini-inverts get around 100 shots per fill on a 13CI tank, is that about right for the TM-7 as well? I run an ATS, so I know next to nothing about the TM-7, except that it is a mini invert in a milsim shell and that inverts run spool valves. The friend is a smaller frame person and usually plays recball and milsim with a basic spyder on CO2 so a move to a TM-7 would be a nice transition.

So what should be a nice optimal air system for them?

Thanks in Advance.

A 45/45 is always a good choice for a smaller person, and gives you lots of shots per fill. But if you're/they're ok with only getting 100 shots per fill, then a 13ci would be a blast to use, and nice and light. though a high quality CF 45/45 is light aswell.

Here's a nice little calculator : Paintball Shots

In the winter months I throw a 13ci on my Ghost and go back to 12 grams in the summer... With my CCM T2 I run a light weight 45/45 from Ninja...

I hope the calculator helps

I want to say a mini can get at least 150(sportshot hopper) on a 13/30. My fiance opted for the 45/45 to reduce trips to the air station though.
