    I no longer own air tanks. Just gonna be running 12 grams from now on. Maybe a 3.5 oz brass eagle co2 tank but that's it. I would love to donate to your wife in the future.

      Could be used as a dump pouch

    i switched to an SL2 68 tank and lost the ability to use my existing tank cover. so i started using a rubber exalt sleeve in size small (thats what fits the 68's BTW if anyone is taking notes..)
    my other tank is a 17.5 alu 3k.. and i run that with nothing on it actually, no grip tape or anything..
    my other other tank is an SL2 45/45 which is known for not being compatible with much of anything

      85% because tanks got pretty, and this sport is mostly a big peacock show
      10% because practical utility reasons that vary per player
      5% because it's not as effective as it used to be, to hide that you're using a tank last hydrotested in the Clinton era

      Non-reasons include
      - having a padded cover over the giant pressurized bomb we're carrying around for fun
      - finding a cover that fits weird sizes (neoprene covers stretch a lot.... this one is akin to "condom won't fit" )
      - eliminating possible bounces because we're so damn good

          check them tail feathers.

          I don't like tank covers, I use rubber butts or cling wrap. They sit and stick to my shoulder better. I find covers get in the way or the occasional snag on branches. And you do not need to do the dumb dance in the air fill line when they check hydro, "hold on I almost got it out." Plus tanks are like cats, they always land on the reg when you drop them.

            So true about the landing.

          Since 1994, DYE continues to innovate within the sport of paintball; constantly raising the bar and releasing revolutionary products.


          Dye still make covers, just not the rhinos any more.

            One of my biggest disappointments when I came back out of hiatus a year and a half ago was the tank cover situation. I'll be rocking my DYE Rhino covers until they fall apart. I don't care how pretty the tanks have gotten... I like the grip of tank with a well fitting cover.

              dang, i guess i was way off. lol

              i THOUGHT it started back in the Co2 days to keep some warmth in the tank. and then it kind of morphed to the HPA tanks for other reasons. when N2 was common, markers were still big and bulky. a rubber pad would help keep the marker up against your shoulder.
              now tanks are tiny, markers are light and extremely efficient and can run smaller tanks. and of course, aesthetics. tanks look nice now unlike the days of old.

                There were players who thought a neoprene cover would hold in the heat on CO2 bottles but the real purposes originally were to protect the bottle from damage (scratches) and the aesthetics. HPA bottles started using covers to protect the bottle surface/fibers. Originally bottles did not have thick epoxy coatings or the fibers and it was relatively easy to damage a fiber on the surface. Any damage fibers is an immediate failure during an inspection prior to filling. This is still the case but the more recent bottles have much thicker epoxy coatings to protect the fibers and used as a medium to add decoration to the bottle making a cover less important.

              I still use the old dye tank cover I bought back when I bought my first HPA tank. Its old, iits ripped, ts ratty, the zipper is missing several teeth. But It works. I would rather have it then damage the tank from something as stupid as dropping it on the ground.

                I've found that I like athletic tape better than my tank covers.

                  Yeah, peacock show. I have a beautiful IA pearl tank that I think looks great. I don't cover it up. I also have a school bus yellow Ninja tank I got for cheap. I have a cover for that.

                    I have one of the exalt end cap guys on my sl77 but mostly cause it was on there when i bought it and I really am that lazy. I’m not such a big fan of the amount of grip you get on them. I don’t need that much grab. I also barely play with a big tank anymore so I don’t bother with it.

                    i use self adhesive first aid wrap for my little tanks. Not much protecting but just the right amount of grip for me.

                    i think i may try some baseball bat grips next

                      I use them. Need the shoulder to grip not slip.

                        I do, unless the tank is my marker’s accoutrement.

                          I haven't found one worth putting on my 15/45, and that's pretty much the only tank I use lately. Just some tape on the end to keep it from slipping

                            You see the one Chuck Love got for his? He’s got a nice one similar to the exalt for bigger tanks but for the 2” round tanks. I think they order them from McMaster Carr… if I didn’t use a buttstock on mine I would use one of those it’s super comfortable.

                            If you're not using a beer coozie cover for your 15/4500 tank, you are doing it wrong.
