haha you might want a remote, but take it out and shoot it for a day and see how you like it, and if its too long for you, get a remote or a drop forward

Yeah, with the tippy foregrip as far forward as it is, your going to have your arms stretched out like your shooting a freakin longbow. I'm assuming since it's a 3000 its probably not a wrapped tank either. Heavy. It'll be a good workout for you.

You'll want to get a remote for sure. It's huge and gets heavy if playing all day.
A drop forward would help but I prefer to carry it in a 4+1.. :smokin

I've seen 3000's that are wrapped.

Same here, two hawks, 4+1 and a remote! :D

alloy tank, estimated to weight about 4lbs = workout for sure :D
It's not so much the weight factor that's going to kill you, it's the distance you have to stretch your arms around the tank. One hand is going to be about two feet from your shoulder, and your other hand is going to be another 10 inches or so in front of the first hand.

Like the pizza man said find a good drop forward to shorten and help balance out your marker.

Played over the weekend with and without a remote...don't have a clear preference yet.
Having the weight off your marker is kinda nice :D

Manny,
does the 72/3000 fit in your 4+1 and how is it with the remote?
I just ordered the tank, I have a remote but I am wondering what I should carry it in?
What 4+1 do you have?
Thanks!
