Don't buy a new phantom body!

Ok, buy one if you want, but I was screwing around and I just figured out that a spyder feedneck fits on a stock class phantom body perfectly. Pop it on and tighten the screw, viola. Pretty sweet if you want to switch back and forth between sc, and a pocket hopper. I don't know if people have done this before or not, but it sure is IMO a better option than shelling out $40 for a new breech.

What??? All I did is take a regular stock spyder feedneck, the style with holes, not tabs and screwed it on (only one screw obviously, because there is only one hole). I used an older feedneck, made for a radiused top tube. Some of the newer spyders have flat top tubes, but I think all of those have tab style feednecks. Heres some pics, fits like a glove.

Well one thing is you could just go to wal-mart and buy a ghost talon. I know here you get the pocket hopper 50 paintballs and 10 12 grams plus the talong for $25. I got mine at the local field for $6.

As far as online this is the cheapest

Here are more

http://www.*************.ca/product_...roducts_id/590

http://www.dropzonepaintball.com/dro...0&dept_id=9370

See they are easy to find I will get a picture and show you the ones that are hard to find.

X-paintball.com doesnt carry this product, thus rendering the misley attempt to say competition unacceptable. Competition is defined as two competitors having the same product, competing against each other to sale it. If one of those "competitors" doesn't carry that product, then they aren't really competing.

Besides, my brother bought somehting off that site and he had nothing but problems, and their prices are too high. If they want to actually compete there customer service needs to seriously improve and their prices need to drop. If not they are just digging themselves their own grave. And I say this because the local field didn't carry much because they couldn't push a product because they were too busy trying to make money. And people where looking elsewhere. I always buy online due to it being cheaper. But I can get that same stuff they are selling for much cheaper at the field near here and not have to pay for shipping.

So seriously dude, drop it. When they start carrying this product I will take it off.

yeah, its fine as long as xpaintball doesn't carry it. I've had nothing but good expereinces with xpaintball though. Sorry to hear about your problems. I hadn't been able to find pocket hoppers by themselves anywhere, but I really wasn't looking that hard.
