Which HPA reg is best for me?

Right now I'm running a dual reg'd Blazer with CO2 but I'd like to move on to compressed air. I also plan on purchasing an x-valved mag. With that in mind, I know I want something that offers 850+psi output.

-Most of the high pressure regs that I have seen have been adjustable, which for the most part means big and bulky. I'd like to keep the size and weight down.
-I'd like to be able to easily switch it between at least 2 markers.
-Guerrilla Air just came out with a new tank and reg. The tank interests me because of its size and weight, which are just about the smallest of any tank out there. Products The only problem is the reg is mid-pressure.
-I'll buy new or used, but I'd like to keep the cost under $150.

Thanks for the help.

Edit:
I guess I should have made it clear, but I'm not concerned with size or hydro date, I know all that. I'm asking more about which would be the best reg with a output of over 850psi.

The reason I want compressed air is so I can just drop the female stab as well as use it on a mag.

Here is a quick break down for you , first there is no reason to ever consider a LP tank reg they are not flexible enough to be used on a verity of guns owned. Again 3 k tanks may be cheap but offer the same inflexibly as a LP tank reg. ( 3k tanks are 3 years most 4.5k tanks are 5 hydros)

68/4500 for non supported fields
45/4500 for fields with fills

The new Myths are $150, and I heard they where gonna come out with a spring kit.

B-3K tanks(aluminum and most steel) tanks are 5 year hydro as well
HPA/CO2 Guide lines
Quote:
There are blanket rules, and exceptions for the the blanket rules. First, the blanket rules.
1 - All fiber-wrapped tanks are to be hydrotested every 3 years, unless the manufacturer specifically indicates ON THE BOTTLE that hydrotesting is due at 5 years. All fiber-wrapped tanks have a maximum lifespan of 15 years, no exceptions.
2 - All steel and aluminum HPA tanks are to be tested every 5 years, with an unlimited lifespan. The only exception to this rule is for steel tanks stamped 3HT, which must be tested every 3 years and have a 24 year lifespan.
Just clearing that up...

I prefer a 68/45. Others may prefer a 45/45. It's all personal preference... Go down to your store and try it to see what you like.

Notro duck I-regs can be adjusted with factory piton pack and are popular with mag owners right now.

Depends on your field and playing style. I use an 88/4500 on my Blazer, but I play mainly scenario games and tinker in the garage. I'm also a big guy so the size doesn't really bother me.

Don't forget that you'll need to drop one of the dual regs on teh Blazer, otherwise you'll be triple-regged using HPA.
