I've opted for this when I bought my Phantom, and it was a good choice. It makes the trigger much more comfortable, I don't know why anyone would like the stock trigger without it, but some do. It's easy enough to install, although mine came pre-installed from Wevo.
Tired of the crappy feel of the Phantom's trigger? Get this.
I got this for free from MC, and tried to put it on, when i realized i didnt have the right sized allen wrench to do it. This is a negative, as i had to go out and buy a hex key (same thing) just to install this, even though i had several hex keys in my garage. FYI, it is sized 0.050, which is very small. when you tighten the screws, the shoe has a tendency to slide up a little bit due to the nature of how it stays in position, by tightening the small screws onto the trigger (imagine, the screws are being tightened while being in contact with the trigger, and as the screw rolls in a circle it slowly pushes the trigger shoe up). Honestly, i loved the stock trigger, albeit the pictures make the stock trigger seem like it will cut your finger, but since i got this for free i use it. Honestly i dont really care on if i have one or not, but i keep it on since like i said, i got it for free. Also, in terms of appearance, i feel that it looks much better with a shoe, as it can match your color scheme. Another positive is that it allows you to grab the trigger easier, since the shoe makes the trigger wider. However, this being said, it does make less room for your fingers, so if you use gloves or have fat fingers, it might be a problem. it isnt for me though
This wasnt something i was overly impressed with. People say that this is just incredible and completely necessary, and for alot of people it probably does feel great, but for me i honestly dont care either way. If you have one great, if not, dont panic and rush to order one online. Honestly I like the stock trigger as it is but use this since i got it for free (incredible customer service by Mike Casady, thank you) with all of these reasons, i give it a....

Makes the trigger a lot more comfortable.
Improves the look of the trigger.
Its a really nice upgrade. Its really cheap, i got it for $5 and makes the trigger a lot more comfortable. Its really easy to put on, and it makes the look of the trigger alot better. Its a nice, cheap, and good looking upgrade and you should buy it.
Make sure you tighten the screws every now and then.
More cushion for pulling the trigger. Makes the pull seem smoother since it distributes the pull throughout the pad in your finger as oppose to pulling the trigger without it. I had it for a while without the trigger shoe (which was fine) but with the shoe, it feels much better. It's like two chairs, one's leather and the other is wood. You can sit on both, it's just the leather is probably just a bit more comfortable.
It doesnt come with the gun, you have to buy it separate
The trigger shoe is the only upgrade you need for the phantom, and you really dont need it. All it does is make the triiger more comfortable- witch it does. You may also want the ball detents if you are using small paint. the trigger shoe does it job well and it is cheap.
This is one of the few upgrades you will ever need for The Phantom. I only paid 4.50 for mine. What else can i say. Im trying to make 50 words so it lets me post this, so bear with me. The only other upgrade you would need would be a set of detent rings.
Buy it if you own a Phantom

Reduces area for your fingers if your hands are large.
Picked this up because I found that the stock trigger for my beautiful phantom was a tad slim. It was more than useable, of course, but I like a nice fat, meaty trigger to play with, just in case my fingers slip or something crazy like that. I'm quite happy with my purchase too. Installation is dead simple, simply fit the shoe over your existing trigger and tighten the small screw with the key provided. Doesn't move around at all and fits the trigger area perfectly. It also looks very good.
It is also made from high quality stainless steel, so don't worry about putting a low quality product on your gun.
That's about it, there's not much to hate or love about this, but if you want a trigger shoe, it's perfect.
