Wonder if the club has any sponsors you should buy from?

It's too bad UA is not around anymore. Powertank has the most product and selection. I'm sure google will turn up some smaller resellers.

Biggest thing you want is a high flow regulator. you could use a beer one but it's be slower. lower flow ones will freeze up too.

You could always build your own. Any alum C02 tank you can return will work. Liquor barn on broadway has returnable c02 filled. a fixed regulator or even one from powertank and a hose.

I got mine in a group buy through the Land Cruiser Mailing List about 10 years ago, but I think you can still get them through Cramer Decker in CA. It was way less $$ than a Powertank and works great. I think the tank was like $30 and the regulator was about $35. The regulator pressure is set by a spring inside, they threw in an 80 pound spring in case I wanted to drop from the 150# it came with.

Powertank regulators are not just rebadged units. They are designed for the application. That, coupled with a lifetime warranty is a pretty good deal.
