Greetings all.
Awesome review. I always wanted to know if the ninja SL tank was slimer and shorter then the gray ghost tank. And now I know. Also, loving the live Saturday videos.

kidlat1968 says:

SnuggeSnugge says:

Love this video! I was wondering though (since I don’t find a lot of information about this) how you fill your HPA tanks. And how can you be self-sufficient in filling your HPA tanks? The only thing i’ve found was that you need a 4500 psi compressor, fill a scuba tank and then fill your paintball HPA tank with the scuba tank. Is that correct? What compressor would you recommend? Thank you in advance for the feedback!!

Ilir Kumi says:

Just bought a re hydro’d 68ci Ninja for $100 bucks.


Is there any way to adjust the nipple and gauge placement on the ninja ultralite regulator so the nipple is pointed down and gauge pointed up? Somehow that’s how my shop set mine up when I get my carbon tank back then.
Is the nipple longer on UL than prov2 any help is great appreciate. Thx

Brian Acost says:

i have a tippmann tmc i just bought a couple days ago..i plan on carrying the tank around my waist , .which would be the best tank for my tippmann tmc? also what does the 3000 and the 4500 stand for??

Richard H says:

I use a Ninja 68 SL V2, Tippmann Cronus, DeadlyWind Null barrel, Halo 2 loader – and I am able to play with guys with electronic guns. Many times eliminating many more of opposing players than guys with electronic guns. I think it is the best basic setup. That being said, I will probably buy an Etha 2 for times when it is “electronic only” games but outside of that it is a good setup for beginners who want to play with most other players. It just works. No maintenance, no problems. Keep up the good videos, I appreciate the unbiased reviews and insights. Very helpful…

Drew says:

I want a supreme hat collection video

Team Toxic says:

Dan says:

Any tips on how to take off your tank, when taking it off it shoots air like mad.

Gash N 420 says:

are you playing any events this season? what division are you?

kidlat1968 says:

the Sl68 can consistently shoot up to 10 pods air capacity

Trevor Brown says:

Don’t know if anyone has mentioned it, but there are also thread extenders for those guys that want a longer feel for a HPA tank but don’t necessarily want a larger tank! I’m 6′ 2″ (approx), personally I do not use one of these but I also use a 77CI Ninja SL tank, which offers a little more length than a 68CI, for an example.
