Sounds amazing until you see the price - $200
Can we talk about the certification on these, and their usage in the USA? Another gentlemen mentioned to me that the ISO cert is becoming standard on bottles.
ISO certified bottles can be legally refilled in the US given it complies with 49 CFR 178.71. It has been adopted each bottle will be labled for use USA. Composite bottles have a re-certification every 5 years. I happen to researching this because I have 2 17 cuin bottles one marked DOT and one ISO but otherwise identical.
15 year fixed lifespan or every 5 until it fails?
Here come the doubting Thomases.
Not falling under 3AL kills it for me.
Hydro every 5
ISO bottles have been okay for use (transport and refilling) in the US for 15 years now [as I've found out in my research]. The problem now is helping educate the paintball populace to that fact. In fact a comparable bottle under ISO standards are tested to a higher standard when compared to the comparable bottle under the DOT standard. It actually looks like the DOT is actively working toward aligning with ISO standard so they can drop maintaining US specific standards. Embrace the change
The fact they are aligning of standards between DOT and ISO is really good for us. There are a lot of different bottle sizes out there that were never certified under DOT that have have not been available to us before.
