Default pressurized co2 setup

would something like this work well or is it better to get a top notch regulator?

With the money you're spending on something that's going to go up at the end from its current price, you might as well get something better and newer.

Get a tank from Beveragyfactory. Then use some money and buy a good regulator, it'll last you in the long run and not give you as many headaches.

If you could get the second one for $100 (plus about $25 shipping) I think you would have a good deal. The risk is that something is wrong with one of the components. I doubt it selling that cheaply though.
