Compressed Air Tanks are the most used and least understood piece of equipment in your gear bag so today I'm going to have a little chat about the tanks that all most all of the Paintballgear.ca staff use, the Ninja brand of tanks.
My personal favorite tank in the last 5+ years has been a Ninja tank. Why you ask?
We have always been able to get rebuild kits for them. They also include the tools to take the reg apart and instructions on how to do it! Just remember when you put the bonnet back on to loctite the set screws with some medium strength loctite to keep your bonnet from unscrewing itself when removing the tank from your marker.
The output pressure on Ninja tanks can easily be adjusted by removing the bonnet and removing a couple shims and the output pressure is very consistent. The V2 Pro Reg can be adjusted via a rotational collar so you don\\\'t have a fill nipple digging in to your wrist when you\\\'re sliding into a bunker (or crashing as in my case), and they are light weight.
I would love to hear about what tools you use and share your experiences with other players. If you have any questions, please ask and I will do my best to answer them.
