Things I liked:

So light, appears very well made, and except for that fact that the price dropped $50 just a couple days after I bought one (smh...) it's the best value out there for the money.

Things I would have changed:

Nothing, I don't know why peeps are buying the Benji one and bitching about it, when this one is (now) $100 less.

What others should know:

If you fill this with you're Benjamin Hand pump, it will take more than 1500 pumps...ask me how I know.

Things I liked:

Haven't used it yet.

Things I would have changed:

I realized after it arrived I can't fill the tank myself using my compressor. I have to take it to a dive shop to have it filled. Probably will not do that and it will end up collecting dust on a shelf. A refillable option should be offered or at least a valve with a refill port

What others should know:

Hope you have a dive shop near your house.

    Things I liked:

    Size and weight make it very convenient to take along. Also, keeping it charged is a back up in case of emergency like power loss for days resulting from a hurricane.

    What others should know:

    Just took it into Hiller Systems Chesapeake for hydrostatic testing. I’ve owned it for 5 years and was told by the testers that it only has 2 more years of useful life.

    Things I liked:

    Small enough to throw in day pack

    Things I would have changed:

    PSI gauge instead of BAR, Needs to come with adapter to allow SCUBA shops to fill. None of them can fill because they don't have the right adapter. Needs gauge to show how much is in tank! Does no good just to mirror the gun gauge, There is some other package that can get you a hydro and such before shipping, I saw it once on website but never could find it again.

    Things I liked:

    Light and handy. Easier to use than my compressor, and virtually maintenance free till you have to get it tested again. The specs say that this fills an air venturi avenger once. From my experience that must be from dead empty because when I get close to the yellow line I always refill to keep my velocity consistent. Using it in this manner I get at least 3 top offs which is around 150 shots so I am really pleased. What I am saying is don't let the 1 refill statement for the avenger deter you unless you are an avid shooter putting lots of pellets down range. For a guy like me who needs to control squirrels and just get things sighted in once a week this is a great option.

    Things I would have changed:

    See below.

    What others should know:

    When I got this I called all 5 of the local dive shops in my area that fill tanks. None of them would fill it because the fittings do not match up. They wouldn't do it even if I bought the necessary adaptors. The good news is that the paintball place will fill it but I needed to buy a double male attachment to make that work and then still had to lightly sand down the adaptor to get everything to fit. The paintball place closes after Thanksgiving so that leaves a lot of time for me not being able to refill the tank. The good news is that since I don't shoot all that much in the winter except for squirrels and re-sighting this still served me through the winter. Additionally, you really can't fill this tank with the air venturi compressor from my experience. Filling a 4500 lb tank from a 3000 lb. compressor isn't going to work. Just something buyers should be aware of.

    Things I liked:

    This tank is perfect for backpacking. I originally bought the large size but it just is too heavy to drag around and leaving it in my car does no good - but this small size is perfect for carrying around for a quick refill.

    This is a small lightweight tank that will fit in any average size backpack like the ones that kids used to bring the books to school with

    Things I would have changed:

    Pressure Guage rattles when filling and appears to be pretty. I also have the 75L Air Venturi that came with a great pressure guage! The fill hose is adequate but would be nicer if longer.

    What others should know:

    If you venture into the country with a PCP this is a great backpack option... Quality and lightweight.

    Things I would have changed:

    Would love to see a safety release clamp on the foster fitting. "Can't remove the hose from the gun till the air pressure is released from the hose"

    What others should know:

    I've had several hernia surgeries on my stomach. Having an air tank vs a pump, was the only way I was going to be able to enjoy shooting my pcp.

    I really wish there is a QD at the valve so the air line would not have risk of damage whilst being carried.

    Great product, nice to have goo amount of air when out hunting. Using the Dragon Claw and it goes through air.

    Things I would have changed:

    Would like a permanent "whats left in tank" gauge.

    What others should know:

    I bought a golfing beer cooler to put it in to protect it and to have strap to put over my shoulder. Works great and keeps it accessible.

    This does NOT fill your air rifle past 2500psi. I tried filling my Armada and my Gauntlet and both stopped filling between 2500 and 2700psi. What a rip off! I purchase a hand prior to purchasing this and now think that I should have just stayed with the pump. At least I would have gotten good tri workouts!

    Things I liked:

    Size and weight is good for portability. Is it carbon fiber? It just looks like fiberglass but it looks really nice.

    Things I would have changed:

    It should come with a tank protector and a tank boot for this price. I wish the gauge used the full 360 degrees of the surface, it makes it hard to read. Given that a lot of people will probably use this as a tether for their air gun I think more accuracy on the gauge would be a very nice touch. As it is, the gauge doesn't help much. Loud squeak during pumping (see next paragraph).

    What others should know:

    Quality Control. Mine arrived empty. That's already not good... I tried pumping it up and found it would only hold about 10 bar before leaking. With my fingers I could feel the air leaking from the valve stem. I really didn't want to mess with it since these things are ticking time bombs, but with only 10 bar and having some experience with scuba tanks (for scuba diving, not air guns) I decided to give it a go and try my luck at tightening the stem, I found it was not very tight. This was a yellow flag, so before proceeding I looked closer and could see some of the o-ring already massively mangled. I bled out the air and unscrewed the stem, replaced the o-ring + some o-ring-safe-lube and screwed it back together. It's now holding air like a champ. But there is this really unnerving LOUD squeak as each pump of air enters the cylinder. I'm used to a little air woosh but this is very loud and squeaky and honestly a little scary. Remember, ticking time bomb.

    Things I liked:

    Worth every penny (lots of them) IMHO. I got 5 full charges from 150 bar to 230 bar on my FX Compact Warcat. It's light and easy to handle.

    Things I would have changed:

    Can't think of any thing.

    What others should know:

    First fill, with Air Venturi Nomad took well over an hour. The fittings never got warm, and the Nomad ran smooth. Refills with same compressor from 220 bar to 300 bar take about 20 minutes.

    Things I liked:

    Small holds a lot of air for the size

    Things I would have changed:

    A guage that shows how much air is in the tank would be nice. How hard would it be to add that.

    What others should know:

    There is no guage that tells you how much air is left in the tank. The only way to know is. It has a teat plug that I thought came with the tank but mine did not come with one. So I assume you have to purchase that separately.

    The air release valve needed some tweeking, and as usual the staff in the tech department scores 5 stars. They called back and left detailed message on a easy fix.
