I'm under the impression there are spring kits available for the GA regs to shoot 800 = psi.

The Mag may have better suited tanks for it. Say, an adjustable Flatline.

several actually. some good data too.

the 1st myth we tested - YouTube - Myth Output

the output pressure was literally swinging +/- 150 psi randomly while shooting. this reg did not "ping"

and the video with the data sheet about the test - YouTube - Tank Reg Test final

dan sent us a second myth after our video surfaced on PBN. the second one as you can see did only slightly better. the BNIB myth showed over a 300 psi swing in output pressure over the course of the tank.

GA tanks are joking all the way to first place. Russian Legion uses them, won world cup. Vicious used then in 09, won world cup. Dynasty uses them...well, better luck next year.

Those teams have CHOICES of tank sponsors, they chose GA, and for good reason.

Haven't used anything except GA for the last 2-3 seasons. No issues.

It's still all personal preference.

Well that changes everything! Do they do exchanges for worn bonnets or is it an extra cost on top?

I dont get it, why the hate on PE tanks?

I have four of the suckers in varrying sizes and ages and they all work fine, always have, and have never needed anything more than one fill nipple replaced.

The thing is I just bought a mag to use as my main. Not very useful without a nice tank though.

Anyways, the tank the has the crack is an AVI 68/4500 with hydro of 10/08. It looks like the reg is similar to a PE reg. There are some bubbles in the resin and some seem to be starting to erode a little. I'm beginning to think that the tank was never meant to last.

I mostly play pump, so a HPA is basically a HPA tank to me.

But for pure styling and audacity of appearance, this has to be it:

Anything with aluminum threading is a joke for long term durability,
Is that as true now that most on-gun setups include an on/off ASA adapter? Surely this aleviates a lot of the stress that is put on the threads of an airtank being removed from the ASA when it has downstream pressure behind it.

Also, I haven't bought a new air tank in 5 years when I bought a Crossfire 4500psi 72ci system. A friend of mine recently bought a DYE throttle bottle with a no-name eBay reg, and the system feels as if it weighs half of what mine does.

Are the weight savings from the newer bottles, or just the newer aluminum regulators?
