Reviewer: Kenny Ivey on 6/18/2014

best tank made - not all tanks are made the same. the hot dipped galvanized tanks by worthington are by far the best tanks for the money. unlike other steel tanks that when the protective coating chips off the tank starts to rust and pit these tanks do not. steel tanks keep their negative buoyancy unlike aluminum tanks that float after you burn thru your gas. this lets you dive with less weight. i have me own air compressor so i like the low pressure tanksit is easier on the compressor unit unlike high pressure tanks that beat up a compressor pretty bad. the xs valve is very tough and when the tank is open it shows a green ring around the valve handlered when the air is shut off- my wife likes the...View Full Review

Reviewer: Bruce N. on 7/13/2009

Faber 149: one great cylinder. - this is the cylinder to beat all cylinders. i have two of them (not twined) and i couldn’t be more pleased. perceived negatives: weight. not really an issue – they are only about 5 lbs heavier than a steel 120 or 130 length: not an issue either. i’m about 5’8” and have no problem at all with their size. for recreational divers that are not doing deco dives the size of these takes the “running low on air” worry out of standard dives (100+ min at 40 feet is easy). even if you are an air hog you will always finish a no-deco with air to spare. if you are a deco diver no problem (pony up to be on the safe side) but i can do 30+ min 130 fsw dive on air and still pop up on the boat with 1500 psi....View Full Review

Ahhhh - This is a perfect little tank. I just bought one of these High Pressure 80s and love it. Its shorter by a few inches but has the same capacity as its larger cousins. The height of the tank is about the same as that of my BC so instead of having to lift my BC up (weight and all) to cinch the strap around the valve, I let my BC rest on whatever surface Im using when coupling my tank to the BC. This makes it easier for me cinch and tighten the straps. Im spoiled and will be buying another one for myself next year and, if hes good, one for my diving buddy for Christmas.

Reviewer: Roderick S. on 3/17/2013

This is a very nice tank! - i use this tank for filling a pcp air rifle. almost seems a shame, as it would be a very good diving tank. i really like the white finish. it looks nice and seems very durable with reasonable care. the boot that came on the tank is decent, and it came with a very nice valve, that works well for my purpose. if the tank was to be used for diving, or handled and stored loose, i might get a different boot for it that had better built-in roll resistance, and a slightly larger base for better stability when standing upright. the tank is heavy, but that is to be expected for this type of product. it is not so heavy that it is difficult to handle and move around. overall, im...View Full Review

Reviewer: Shaun B. on 9/24/2007

Because one sive ALM 80 does not fit all - Love this tank, for the following reasons: 1. It’s the same size as an ALM 80 tank but provides a much great safety factor. 2 It proves me with less buoyancy IE less weight to use approx 5 pounds saved. 3 it’s great for DIN and Non DIN regulators.

Reviewer: Scott Michael on 2/17/2009

Great tank - I stepped up from an 80 cf aluminum tank. Not only do I have a lot more air, but I find that Im not having the excess buoyancy problems at the end of the dive. You will have to reposition where the tank hangs on your BCD and shed a considerable amount of lead.

133 Faber - Have been diving ranges from 90-120ft. Very much like the lighter weight versus standard steel tanks. Will purchase a few more in the future.
