Review: I'm a huge fan of the Phenom. Last year I literally considered selling all of my gear and giving up PB because of the last three markers I have owned, all three have been a maintenance nightmare which ultimately led to inconsistent shots, misfires, breaks, and a rotten day at the fields. I picked up a Phenom dreading the same eventual consistency to fail, but the marker has been by far the most reliable woodsball style marker I've ever owned or played with.

I can't tell you how long it has been since I've went a full day without a break. I'm on my fifth outing this year with no breaks what-so-ever. And considering some of the junk paint I've been forced to use, that is saying something. No need to get into all the details that everyone else has already went into, but in short at the end of the day my fps is steady, my groupings are 6" @ ~ 50', no breaks, and I've been rained on twice with no issues.
Conclusion: In a nutshell its your expected Tippmann bulletproofness in an electro-mechanical. You will not be unhappy if you pick one up.
