    Question Looking for a New Air System

    So I got to go out and play Paintball for the first time in 5 years last weekend!
    Yes, legs are still sore, 3 days later...

    Anyhow, I was told that despite passing hydro, my '99 HPA I have with my Flatline valve has past it's "shelf life" or something.


    So I'm looking for a replacement. I run an Emag on an Xvalve with a custom drop.
    Whats the recommended tank and regulator these days? I don't even know whats out there anymore...

    Bonus photo of my setup from the weekend. Alas due to my emag battery being toast, had to remove the warp feed for now. (It wasn't working in vibrate mode)

    I bet sandman can hook you up with a new tank, reg, and asa.

    Looking around at stores, I'm presuming the only options these days are ASA style tanks and regs right?

    Problem is it's a 3k tank isn't it ?

    If you are going to spend money get a 4.5k tank and reg.

    That means quite a few more shots per tank full.

    If you want to keep that regulator, I would recommend a First Strike tank. They sell a budget model with a *ahem* basic regulator that's meant to be swapped out. And it's only $100 new. It is a 4500 psi tank, but you can always fill it lower.

    No! No! No!!! Do not use a 3000psi regulator on a 4500 psi tank. Nothing good can come out of it. You should know better.

    To be clear, I'm replacing both the regulator and tank - just looking to see what my options are these days.
