Pump Gun tank question

I need an HPA tank for my VSC phantom. Is there a carbon fiber option? Is my best bet the 13/3000 hpa? It doesn't seem like the 13/3000 gets many shots. I like to shoot allot, and I can't refill my 4 oz CO2 where I play.

I like to shoot alot with my VSC Phantom and go a long time with my 13/3000.
I am a little over the top in terms of preparedness and keep 12 grams with me to be safe. The other option is 2 tanks if you are playing somewhere you can not get fills.

a 13/3K is a great choice. another option if you have it might be to run a bottomline on your phantom and run a larger air tank like a 50/45.

Thanks. I was just checking if there was a really small carbon fiber HPA before buying the 13/3000. I heard the 13/3000 is good for 125-150 shots. I have also heard that phantoms are very gas efficient. How many shots should it get? Does brand matter when buying a 13/3000? Any brand preferences?

The actual tank doesn't matter,they are all made to meet the same standards.But in terms of regulators,I always use ninja.They are very lightweight,and can be dis-assembled for maintnence by the user(you)in case you ever blow a burst disk or have issues with it.

And you should expect about 150 shots off of your phantom.But I suggest you do as Falcon said,and bottomline your phantom,the use a larger tank.but,if you don't have the money for a carbon fibre tank,then use the 13/3000.
