Did I get a good deal?

I just picked up a few markers yesterday as I'm hoping to actually get out and play this year. The first was an Angel Speed with a fly board, tank and hopper. The other is a Spyder esprit with an e-marker frame and expansion chamber. Do you think they're worth the $200 I paid? they both turn on but I need to get the tank filled and get some paint so I can try them out. Also, how do I check the hydro date on the tank? It's a Nitro Duck but none of the numbers look like a date.

I'd say you got a pretty good deal assuming both work corrrectly.

Can you post pics of the the numbers that ARE on the tank?

What are they 10 years? And will it need to be tested before being filled?

yes it's going to need tested before it's filled.
If i remember right, they have 15 year life spans. this means you'll only be able to use it for another hydrotest and that's about it.

Still, assuming it's in good physical condition worth paying the $30 or so to have it hydro'd, they were nice tanks. At the time they came out, they were one of the nicest tanks available.
