Reviewer: Kenny Ivey on 6/18/2014best 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: Christopher H. on 1/13/2015Lots of Air and Great Buy - My first tank, was really debating between 119 and 133, and I eventually decided on this 133. It took a little bit of getting use too and I thought it was too heavy at first but now I love it and am glad I decided on this. This tank is same height of my aluminum 80 and the girth is considerably wider at 12" around. This fits on my eagle tech 10 perfect but recommend a two strap system on BC to carry this tank. Provides me over 1 hr of air and no need for double tanks. Faber is always quality and shipping was super fast.
Reviewer: Bruce N. on 7/13/2009Faber 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
Reviewer: Roderick S. on 3/17/2013This 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: Joseph Shields on 1/10/2015Faber 100 Cubic Foot FX Series High Pressure Steel Tank - The tank is a excellent piece of workmanship for Steel tanks. Spun steel from Italy is one of the best. And what makes it even better is Scuba.coms awesome price and free shipping . Shopped around and Scuba. com cant be beat.
Reviewer: Carol C. on 1/10/2015Rayban - The tanks work great.
Reviewer: Scott Michael on 2/17/2009Great 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.
Reviewer: Allen Greathouse on 3/31/2012LP steel tank x2 - Purchased 2 LP 85 steel tanks. Great price which also included shipping! Shipment was via ground with tracking. I got a txt MSG when these were delivered to my home....how cool it that! CA to FL was less than a week ! Happy customer on all counts!! Thanks...tanks are awesome as well! Allen Greathouse
Reviewer: Arthur Woolard on 7/30/2012Great tank - Get a hard fill and you will have 130 cf of air. Great for spear fishing were you need lots of air.
Reviewer: Dennis L. on 7/9/2011Perfect - this is my first steel tank, its awesome, was able to a few pounds in lead. the tank itself arrived from scuba.com very fast without a scratch on it and a vis sticker that my dive shop honored and didnt try to rope me into other fees to get the first fill. i think im going to love this tank!
Reviewer: Max Witzler on 10/13/2007Big Tank! - Its big and heavy but it lasts forever. You can easily get two dives out of one tank. I chose the low pressure tank so that I would always get good fills wheras High pressure tanks are more likely to get short fills. I dont recomend it but I also recieved a 3200 fill. Thats way over the max but you really get alot of air when that happens.
Reviewer: Clifford Kraft on 5/26/2009Faber 85 Cu Ft steel tank - Excellent tank - everything perfect and professional. I like the nice external white paint job. Physical size is good as is weight. 2500 lbs is much easier on your gear and still gets you 85 cu ft of air. Price was good.
Reviewer: Larry Mccutcheon on 12/3/2007faber cylinder - The cylinder is as represented, very happy.
