And here I was hoping the first thing we'd see from them was a new unireg style inline regulator, oh well I guess at least these look nice

This ad. doesn't seem to make a lot of sense to me. Maybe it's my liberal arts education creeping up on me...

Shouldn't it read "68ci/4500psi" not "68/4500ci" since the first number is the volume and the second number is the pressure value?

Also, shouldn't it read "payload 68-4.5k compressed" not "payload 68-45k compressed?"

Afterall, it's 4,500psi, not 45,000psi.

Is there anything different between the two tanks aside from color?

Glad I am not the only one who thinks proof reading advertising is an exceptional idea

I thought the same thing...either that is some bad typos, or those are some HUGE tanks for paintball.

Damn, 4500ci, i'd hate to carry that around.

Mabey if everyone yells "25/4500psi tank for pumps" loud enough someone will hear lol

Yep.

The only differences I see are the color schemes. One seems to be designed for the woods while the other is designed to look like a NOS bottle. Ironically, NOS and turbo aren't the same thing either.

Ad mistakes aside, I'll look at picking one up later in the year when I need a new tank.

As bad a the marketing and labeling are the art for the tanks are pretty smart in respect to capturing the agg and woodsball crowds..

When I used to get PBX magazines, I noticed typos in the ads all of the time. Drove me nuts.
