Products Used:
SL-68II - That was my previous gun. It was great, reliable, durable - but nowhere near the quality of my Phantom.
Marker Setup: VSC Phantom, 45 Grips, T-Stock, Red Dot Sight.
45 grips if you want.
I very rarely use the Red Dot Sight, but its nice sometimes.
Strengths: Very Accurate (I can't begin to explain it.)
Varied colors.
Improves skill.
Weaknesses: Some people have problems with the hardline leaking. It is easily fixed.
Review: I have never owned a semi auto, or auto for that matter, and I've never regretted starting out with pumps. I purchased this gun after a year long ride with my old Tippmann SL-68II, and I was more than pleased with the quality I received in my Phantom.

I can't fully explain how accurate this thing is - the first day I got it I took it out to the woods and let my friend with an (extremely) upgraded autococker try it out (over $1500). He came back to me with a blank expression on his face, and he later told me something like "I never believed there were snipers in paintball - but with a gun like that, I'm not going to piss you off." Thats where the appeal of this gun lies for many - its a bad ass. Every time I see mine I think of that scene in Pulp Fiction, where Samuel L. Jackson asks for his wallet and specifies that "its the one that says 'bad ass mother f**ker' on it."

With this gun you WILL learn how to take out high end semis and autos, who's price tag is 10x the Phantoms. Its great to take out someone with an LCD Angel and laugh menacingly as you flaunt your superior pump marker at them, while you used under 10 shots and they used approx. 1000980879845965. Thus, when (or if) you switch back to a semi, you're skills will have improved immensely.

As it has been said, CCI has the best customer service I've ever encountered.

Playing with this thing is hard to describe... Imagine having a gun as heavy as a hopper, but also having the capacity to get head shots on the first shot and the other playing having no idea where the hell it came from. 'Nuff said.
Conclusion: This is the only gun I know that made a hardcore speed ball player become suddenly paranoid of playing in the woods. I'm picky about the paintball products I use, and this is the only one that I would give a perfect 10 to.
Great job, CCI.
10 out of 10
