What tank reg to get?

I am in need of a new 4500psi tank regulator as my Pure Energy is leaking from the vent hole on the bonnet and I cannot remove said bonnet.

I am leaning towards the newest Crossfire one.

Does anyone have experience with this unit?
Appears to be the one Valken uses on its tanks.

I have the Stealth, it is pretty awesome, fast recharge. Only problem I hadvwas they did not install thread tape on the gauge threads so it would leak there. I might grab another to put on my GA tank or just getting a Ninja reg.

Ninja Pro Series Adjustable Tank Regulator - 4500 PSI

rotatable collar
and adjustable for LP and HP markers

As an informational blurb -2 new Valken tanks no issues with the performance of the Crossfire reg just the inability to shift the location of the fill nipple/gauge - purchased 1 of the above to solve the "issue" - should be here sometime next week

$33 for the Crossfire and $60 for the Ninja.

Is it worth the extra money?

Ninja's standard reg is $38.

Honestly I haven't been able to see a difference between my friends ninja and my crossfire as far as the reg doing what it is supposed to do.

Like I said for me I was willing to pay more to be able to move the position for one of them And I am considering also buying an electronic LP marker in the future so it was worth the $ for the adjustable output.

Otherwise I have found no fault with the Crossfire regs so far in approx. 6 and 4 months of use

I don't think you can go wrong with either regulator.

I have a LP Crossfire and have not had any issues using it. I also have Ninja regulators and again, have no issues with them.

My vote is for a standard Ninja reg.

If you have crappy *** luck like I do and the Fill nipple Always finds itself into your wrist, I would say get the ninja Pro.

I have had Ninja regs in the past and never had any issues with them, but ANSGear had the Crossfire Stealth on sale for 25.00 so I picked one up. After installing it, it leaked from the valve pin sticking but once I pushed it in manually it has stayed sealed and worked ever since with no issues. Shorter then a standard reg but longer then a GA Myth, it's a happy medium and my Axe now feels more balanced then before. I opted for the LP spring which drops the output to 450-500 psi and it shoots as good as any other tank I have ever owned.
