Marker Setup: Phantom SC 11" with ADCO Hotshot Reflex red dot sight; VForce Shield; Ronin Gear Stock Harness.
A red dot sight.
Strengths: Accuracy, durability, reliability, lightweight, compact, looks great, earns you respect just for using it.
Weaknesses: None. But it will expose the weaknesses in your game like an x-ray.
Review: I played a full day with my new Phantom SC and had more fun than I've ever had playing paintball. Just walking into the staging area you get a grip load of looks, whispers, questions and a lot of respect. I was target shooting at the range and there were autocokers and angels all around me. They were taking like 3 or 4 shots to hit these targets while I was nailing everything I aimed at on the first shot. I heard a guy with a cocker say to his buddy, "that gun is pretty accurate".

In one game I moved up front and on of the opposing players ran into our territory about 75 ft across from me. He didn't see me so I lined him up in my sights and fired once. It was the sweetest feeling to see my paint break all over his lenses. He kept talking about that shot all day.

Another guy tried to run around my bunker firing at me at the same time. He was about 20 ft. away. I just reaction shot him and nailed him in the chest while he was running.

Basically, if you aim this gun, it will hit where you aim like 90% of the time. The trick is to stay calm and aim in the heat of battle.

It was light so I could full on sprint with it. It got hit with paint several times and I didn't even have to clean it. It kept shooting just as good even though it was a bit more colorful.

At the chrono it varied by like 3 fps until the 12gram started running out.

On speedball fields I was getting pounded by cockers, angels and tippman A-5s, but this is because I kept running too fast and far off the break and outstripping my cover guys. I still am learning to adjust my game. At this stage I can't trade paint with high end semis because I'm not too good at snapshooting yet, but this gun is so accurate that if I keep practicing, I will be snapshooting semi's out.

Just remember to start each game with a full feed tube and a relatively new 12 gram. Learn your best range and only shoot at what you can hit or to provide some cover. This gun has taught me more in one day than I've learned in all these months of playing with my semi about playing tactically, smart, and knowing your limitations and working around them.
Conclusion: This gun is great for beginners because it will force them to learn the game rather than rely on a technology race where they think that ROF spells victory. It is more fun than semis because it is more challenging. It is as accurate as any paintball marker can be. If you get good with this then you will be better than any semi player. It is just fun fun fun.
