Tanks for Pump Gun?

I need some help guys. I’m trying to find a light weight, long compressed air tank for my pump gun. I’m 6’2, so I have long arms and usually shoot a 68/4500 long bottle. I tried a 13 cubic inch tank, and although the weight is nice, I just can’t use a tank that short. It seems like the 22 cubic inch bottles are impossible to find. With that in mind:
1) Does anyone make a 45/4500 that would be the length of a 68/4500?
2) How long is a 22 cubic inch bottle?
3) Does anyone have any tank recommendations? I’m open to anything.

Is that bottle only or bottle and reg? Any idea where I could find one?

I have the rap4 17ci tank. It comes in at 11inches with the reg. I like it because it is longer than the 13ci tanks (which in my opinion are too short) but not as long as a 22 (which I think are too long).

I'm almost certain Paintball Gateway has the 22's, and they are cheaper than the 17's on ebay. I'll check here shortly; I know it's the site with the tan colored background.

I had a 22 for a really short time, that thing is long. I find a 45/45 with a CP reg extender to be perfect for me (6'3" long gorilla arms). With the reg extender it makes the 45 as long as a 68.

Yeah I have the same problem, 6'3" with long reach. I run the 13 on a reg extender and its still too short for my liking. The 13 on an extender is roughly the same as the 17 and since you have similiar stats I think the 22 will be perfect.
