Default CO2 in Metro Detroit

Any good places to deal with in Metro Detroit?
I'm trying to decide if I should buy a cylinder (probably aluminum) or go the lease route. Does anyone have any experiences they can share? Good or bad, don't be shy, name names.... inquiring minds want to know... Who is home user friendly??

You might get better information if you defined Metro Detroit better. My LHBS fills and sells the tanks. It's in Milford. Where are you?

I called around to welding supply shops and $80 seems to be the going price for a 5 pounder. I want an extra for the lager chest so I can carb beers before they are on tap.

I'm in central Macomb County. From what I can see, most of the welding shops around here (within 5 miles or so) don't actually fill tanks, they swap as the filling is done somewhere else.

$80 isn't bad I guess, as to buy a new off the net is like $60 and then there is shipping. So a $10 premium to get a full tank is OK I guess. I'm kind of leaning that route as then it's walk in swap it out and back to pouring beers...

Wanted to see what other in the area were doing...

I paid 65.00 for mine (filled) from Hopman's in Waterford.

He was easily the best price in town, and he's a pretty cool guy, so it's easy to give him my money and not regret it

Also, don't forget that Bass Pro fills CO2 tanks as well.
