    i'm sure this topic has been covered before , but i had not seen much on it for couple years. ExpertHPA seems to bring a higher quality product to market. i have an air venturi and an omega tank and they seem ok,  however i am looking for more definitive experience on the matter. anyone with the expertHPA tanks? why did you go with them , and have they convinced you to stay with them? thanks

    I have 2 of their hose assemblies they are top of the line, bleed off valves are smooth as butter.

    I believe there are only two tank manufacturers which these companies get their tanks from.  The major differences in the end product are the valves.  Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Forgive me here, a tank holds air, I hook the tank to the gun fill the gun, turn the valve off and bleed the fill line. no leaks. What more can you ask for? Good picture of a girl or guy or goat on it OK. If it's DOT certified and in Hydro, is there more??

    excellent question! that's why i posted in the first place. rumor is EX-HPA uses stronger tolerances with their gauges and hoses which is the key failure areas. pretty sure all tanks require hydro testing every 5 years and have 15 year max life. but i can't swear to this , that's why i'm asking.

    I have only owned expert HPA air tanks, so that’s all I can speak about.  I bought my Tiger Shark tank with all options a little over 5 years ago.  I bought a Guppy tank with all options today.  I wanted a smaller tank to keep on different floors of my my house so I don’t have to lug one up and down stairs.  When I go to my local indoor range, I only want to shoot 5-10 mags anyway, and the Guppy will be easier.  I can even fill the little tank from the bigger one, and I do have a Bauer Jr II compressor.

    Anyone who wants to mess with 4,500 psi using a dinged up outdated tank with foreign hoses and fittings of questionable quality, be my guest.- I’ll stick with Joe B, my eyes, limbs and life aren’t worth trying to save a few bucks.

    Save a few bucks, it's all good.  Until it ain't.  I'll buy less expensive guns to tinker with but the air tanks/fittings will only be the highest quality I can find going forward.

    Yep.  There are a lot of places in life to save a buck.  4,500 psi is not one of them.

    not looking to cheap out. i was looking to compare new grade tanks. now air venturi and omega are priced equally. now with a "air hog" strap and bracket assembly brings the cost to about $100 less than joe B's tank. this is the 100 cu ft tank size. joe b's tank would come with an extra gauge that moniters existing tank pressure which i like a lot. so , in the end , i most likely go with expert HPA for all my future tank purchases.

    When I was looking for a tank, Joe B's seemed to have the most compact valve system.  To me that seemed safer since gauges can be broken off and the results would be devastating.   So I have a Tiger Shark and a Guppy.
