Review: The Sterling STP (mine is nicknamed the Green Hazard) is a very accurate pump marker with a smooth stroke. Mine is very old and is still very accurate when shooting across an outdoor speedball field.
A barrel upgrade isn't that important, as it will shoot just about any paintball straight, as long as it has the correct diameter for the barrel. If not, it will be terribly inaccurate.

The stock trigger is very comfortable, but the stock grip can be a bit uncomfortable after an extended period of use, so a better grip is a good upgrade.
I've slamfired a few times (holding the trigger down and pump like mad) and it does perform rather well.

The thumb screws tend to unscrew themselves so be sure to check them before playing.

When comparing it to the Phantom it has the disadvantage of not having an abundance of upgrades etc. but the trigger on the Phantom can't be compared to the Sterling. The Phantom is also much cheaper than a new Sterling.

Conclusion: It is the Rolls-Royce of pump markers for a reason. A new Sterling STP will cost you 300 € so a Phantom is a better choice if you don't want to spend alot of money on a pump. The Sterling however is the best pump around.
