DM tank requirements

I've got an IM9 with a rotor and ninja 68/45 tank but I'm wondering if I need a ninja pro regulator for the marker or any other upgrades?

the pro reg just has a swivel so you can spin the nipples out of your wrists. if your picky like me, its a godsend, if not, then save the money. but you don't need to use a ninja reg, most of us just like them better than the others

i agree, i just picked up a ninja adjustable and run it on a DM6 at mid pressure (5-600 psi output) along with a WGP fixed HP output (750-850 psi output) no difference between the tanks as far as the marker is concerned

All my tanks are low pressure (~450 psi) and neither my PM8 or DM9 have any issues with that.

So how would you adjust a tank to be either low or high pressure and which one Is better?

If it's a Pure Energy regulator or Guerilla Air regulator, you replace the spring pack in the regulator to lower the output.
If it's a Ninja regulator you remove all the...I think it's red shims but leave the silver shims.
If it's Dye, you SOL since Dye does't offer a low pressure option.
If it's anyone else, haven't a clue.

Some markers (Bob Long) will void the warranty and leak if you use anything other than low pressure input. Other markers (Mini) simply work better with low pressure inputs (in this case, it's easier to remove the tank with a low pressure input). Others (Angel) were designed with low pressure tanks in mind and so will not chrono to a legal velocity with high pressure input.

However, some markers (many blowbacks) will NOT work well (if at all) with a low pressure output tank.

Neither is inherently better. I use low pressure tanks because I have a Marq and an Angel, so I just converted all my tanks over to low pressure.

Unless you have a marker that requires it, no reason to do so.

other way around, there is 1 red one and typically 3 or so silver ones (some takes come with more or less since they tune each tank from the factory)

So I have a 68/45 Ninja tank and a Dye IM9 what pressure should it be (high/low)? And if I have to change it how would I in detail? I don't really understand what the red and silver shims are.

the answer is that it doesn't matter, the marker will operate either way

I see DM's can work on any pressure so I won't need to adjust my tank, right?
