Good small HPA tank?

I dont care about the brand or anything, just something that is small and lightweight and not a total piece of junk. I prefer the rounded ones over the flat backs. Thanks!

Any 13 is great. I suggest slapping a myth reg on, really cuts down on the length.

Unless you live in Europe or China where they have 4500psi 15ci carbon tanks, you won't find anything with a round bottom. All the small tanks (9, 10, 13, 17, etc) in North America are 3000psi and flat bottomed.

I picked up a Ninja 45/45 Lite tank. Slightly shorter, lighter and much narrower than a 68. It suits most of my needs. My old 68/4500 is 2.1lbs, the 45/45 Lite is 1.38lbs. The 45/45 SL2 is 1.2lbs, but I couldn't justify the extra cost for the scant weight difference.

13 is too short but nice. 17 is perfect. 45/45 sl2 holds way more air and isnt so bad. There is a big jump in bulk from the 17 to the 45 45

Here's a good review

Here's the latest available small tank

Here's an example of a "heavy" and light setup. 13 ci and 12g's.

I love my ninja 45/45 peanut, but if you're going for super lightweight the 13ci are the way to go. Do we have a good source for the 17ci tanks?

I ordered from here. They're good. https://mcsus.com/products/hpa-17ci-...air-tank-empty. 17cis are still hard to come by.

Id trade mine towarda a 45 45 sl2 though. I think I need a bigger tank
