When you purchase an ultimate air tank, your not really paying for the tank, tanks are cheap.

Looks like your missing about $120.00 worth of accesories in order to use it.

I was able to use a $60 regulator with a bottle I had laying arouns, but I'm not very happy withit for use out on the trail. Actually It's not the use, it's the storage, and worrying about the reg getting damaged, the ones that are sold from ULtimate Air are much nicer for carrying in a vehicle.

Also I thought the Ultimate Air tanks are aluminum which would be nicer too.

I guess it was the fact that your title is misleading in that one would assume you BOUGHT an ultimate air tank and had it customized, this does not appear to be the case? Did you buy the accessories from ultimate air?

A little clarification can go a long way.

So basically you have no involvement with UA, but because you can get stuff for super cheap from your dad's employer, this somehow entitles you to imply that UA is ripping people off for the products and incredible customer service they provide? 'Splain please.

I would agree that you should take "Ulitmate Air" out of your title.

I never once stated his air systerm was garbage so before you all of you start knocking me or THAT they were ripping people off. I clearly stated that I made my own kit. I don't justify the price of the UA kit. I can make the same kit for alot less. and have better componets. So take a deep breath people and calm down.
