Experience:

Products Used:
CCI Phantom - The Sterling is slightly better mostly because the phantom is (or was) less trustworthy in keeping the velocity. As a referee I've taken 2 or 3 phantoms out of play that chronoed ok in the begining of the game but in the middle chronoed in at 350 +/-5 fps. I have never seen a Sterling do that and usually it is the velocity adjustor that scews things up for the phantom.
PMI Trracer - No Match even my modified trracer (light pump, armson, valve tricked) cant come close in any aspect.
Marker Setup: I use my sterling STP. Armson internaly rifled barrel (the original one of the first batches). Some springkits and an 9V hopper (U need it with the Sterling ;-)and Tricked Valves, Lightened Hammer, Siphon (UK-style) 12oz CO2.
Recommended
Upgrades:
Siphon CO2 is a must for velocity consictency..
Springkits as well for a light pump action.
Strengths: When people write that their markers are accurate I usually just shake my head. I quote "I got 5 guys and 2 of them with headshots from 20 yrds". Well If I cant hit a lightbulb 9 out of 10 from 20m (50 yrds?) and 5 out of 10 from 30m (75 yrds?) I start cursing and stalk off to clean my marker. With the Autotrigger you can hold people down even if they do have semis, 3 accurate bps usually does that but 6 bps is my limit sustained allthough busts is faster then that.
Its a Pump so you will have to play "Pump-Style"
Weaknesses: Its a Pump so you will have to play "Pump-Style"
Its a Pump so you can´t shoot it one-handed.
The price.
Conclusion: You want the best you pay for the best, I can recomend this perfectly machineed state of the art Pump marker to any serious player our there. And as a tactical advise I would recomend this marker to any "Semi-only"-player out there as it will probably improve your game ;-)

10 out of 10

Yer math is a little off, 20 meters is equal to roughly 21.8 yards.

Make sure the nylon locking screw is in correctly on the phantoms. That screw holds the TPC in place.

I've never had a problem with it in all my years owning a phantom. Then again, I don't mess with it much either.
