I just installed the ghost ring on my phantom, and aside from my stock, I'd say it's the most usefull upgrade I've ever gotten for it.
It's not designed to make your gun super accurate, but rather to make general aiming easier by lining up your target with the gold pin, and keeping it within the vertical confines of the sights themselves. It'll tighten your grouping by a few inches, which is key when snapshooting. I always used to miss by a few inches because I didn't have the firepower to spray and pray, or the ability to aim down the side of my barrel and snap off a perfect shot time after time. These sights shave those few inches off, and you'll hit home alot more often.
It's probobly the best sight system for paintball, with the exception of reflex scopes. But considering they are 50+, run on batteries, and can shatter when hit by a paintball, I believe that these sights are your best bet.
My only problem is installing the gold pin. It requires a super small allen wrench (which I didn't have,) so I had to fight with plyers to get it on, which took over half a hour, and marred up the pin with scratches.
A cheap and easy solutions to greatly improve accuracy, which is what the pump game is all about. One shot, one elimination.

Fast target aquisition, cheap, durable, easy to use
Not incredibly accurate, no adjustments
The new CCI Ghost Ring is a great addition to your phantom. As a ghost ring, it's not super accurate, but this one does have a gold pin that hangs from the center, helping your aim quite a bit. It's less accurate than a red dot, and not adjustable, but works well for simple aiming. Because it's a ghost ring, the simple design makes it super durable, super easy to use, lightweight, and it doesn't need batteries. These make it great for your average paintballer.
The gold pin is what really tops it off, it makes it much more accurate than your standard ghost ring.
I would recommend this for anyone who doesn't want, have, or use a normal sight, but needs some guiding on the mildly tricky shots.
