Every tank cover Iíve ever used slips around and has sucked major dong.

I like my tank to sit snug in my shoulder, so I use on of the rubber caps.

I also donít bang my tanks around like a firefighter carrying 2 kids out of a burning building, so I feel more than safe using just the rubber thing.

The cheap covers slide around, but good ones like the old Dye Rhino Covers with the silicone grip material inside don’t move.

Got an old Proto cover on my 68/4500. Rock solid.

I pre-ordered one. It should be nice on the back of my phantom.

So close to pulling the trigger on a pre-order. Not only more shots but around 6 ounces lighter than my ninja 13/3000 (w/ reg). When the tank is that light it starts to get hard to justify 12grams from a purely weight driven standpoint.

I was already leaning towards running an modified-stock class config this season due to the fact that 12grams is sometimes pretty rough on my OCD tendencies lol.

It is a bit pricey though. I would love to see ninja come out with a competing product.

200 dollars is 400 12 grams is 12,000 shots

Price wise it can pay for itself.

For me its the 15/4500 vs 17/3000

I think most of the time I'm going to be better off with the 17ci shots wise since I don't get 4500 fills much.

To be honest, the shot count of even my 13/3000 is acceptable to me. It's the reduced weight that really gets my attention. It provides the benefits of HPA in a package that might still handle somewhat like a 12gram setup.
