Strengths: Smaller gun, high performance, great overall gun.

Review: I got the X7 Phenom for my 30th bday. My wife, best friend, and mom all chip-in to get it for me. How awesome was that.

The first use of the gun, it is just a quantum leap compared to my US Army Alpha Black. The AB is reliable, accurate, and runs better with a cyclone feeder upgrade, but the X7 smoked this gun. The X7's smaller and compact profile, it's easier to use in CQB. The fast fire rate is always good to keep the other team down while your team can move. The switch from pneumatic to electric mode is a great feature because if the battery dies in the middle of a game, you can switch from electric to regular mode and still play unlike other electric triggered guns. Lastly, the mods for the X7 are nice, but not necessary cause the gun looks like a real gun already; except for the Flatline barrel. That is a must!

Things i don't like about the X7 Phenom... well, the battery cover is a bad design. Yes, it makes it easier to change the battery, but that locking latch bothers me especially when I don't have gloves on. It is picky with paint, so try to find a compromise with cheaper and high quality paint. I just say, try different paints. The port holes on the top of the gun (below the rail) just makes the gun look ugly. Other than that, the gun is great.

**************Update**************
My X7 is still great. It is very easy to clean and maintain. I bought a Flatline barrel and I am very disappointed with it. The Flatline is very picky with paint and really hard to set to fly straight. Only used it once cause I was so mad. I used my friends Apex2 barrel and that made my life easier. Now, I can reach out like a sniper and still be a machine gunner. The only thing I need to upgrade is my vest into a Broadsword Tactical.
Conclusion: This is a great woodsball and scenario gun. The gun can go from sniper to machine gun mode with a flick of a switch. You have try it for yourself, it is a great gun and just fun to have.
