You can use HPA as long as you buy a High output tank. THe output has to be 800+.

HPA

 

You can switch Between HPA and C02. Names for HPA include Nitrogen, N2, and Air. Nitrogen and air are different, but for paintball purposes they do the same job.  You donít need any modifications to the marker to accept a HPA tank, as long as it is a high output (around 800psi) screw-in tank. Expansion Chambers do not help HPA at all, but donít harm it either, you can leave you Exp. Chamber on your marker with no difference in performance. Regulators help keep the input pressure of your marker consistent, therefore preventing pressure inconsistency. Regs are not necessary for HPA, but can help out and make your marker more consistent.  HPA works better year round than C02 does because it does not have to change from a liquid to a gas.  You canít put HPA in C02 cylinders because the cylinders for C02 are not made to withstand that kind of pressure. You canít put C02 in HPA bottles either because an HPA bottle isnít made to withstand the cold liquid.  There are about 3 different pressure tanks you can get for HPA use.  3000 psi, these are normally made out of aluminum, but also come in carbon fiber, you will normally get about 700 shots out of a 68/30 tank (68 being cubic inches, and 30 being 3000 psi).  4500 psi, these are normally made out of carbon fiber, and you will get about 1100 shots out of a 68/45 tank.  5000psi these are somewhat less popular than the others, and are made out of carbon fiber, you will normally get about 1400 shots out of a 68/50 tank.  Before you switch to nitrogen you need to factor in these conditions, how often do you play, what kind of marker do you have, do you play indoor or outdoor, do you play in the winter, do you shoot your marker at high rates of fire.  For example, if you donít play in winter, and you have a stock tippy, its probley not worth the switch to nitrogen.  But if you have an Ion and you play speedball year round Nitrogen is a must.  Most high-end guns use nitrogen, and say never to use C02 because of problems with the seals and electronics.  You may decide that Nitrogen is the answer, or you might decide to run C02 anti-siphoned and a palmer stabilizer is they way to go.

98% of ion owners think ions are better than any high end gun. If you would like to bonus ball these idiots put this in your sig.

HPA/Nitro will be fine with a high output tank. I did not find a major improvment in consistancy when I used my nitrogen tank on my 98 Custom, but it did help a little bit.
CCI Phantom... yes it's pump
3.5oz co2

Eggy II
45 4500 fiber

98 Custom
