What should I get?

I'm starting to get into stock class play, and I play mostly woods. I've been looking at phantoms but I don't really know which one to get.

I've been looking at this for $160.

Also, what are some upgrades for the phantom? I've heard of the frantom barrel that is a freak insert in the phantom, but I don't really want to do that. Any help would be appreciated.

edit: I also found this for 180. What all do i need to buy to convert these to be able to use a 3.5 oz?

So the stock barrel on the phantom is good enough?

And what exactly is the trigger shoe? On wevo it says it gives you a better feel on the trigger, but how?

Yes, the stock barrel is very good.

A trigger shoe is something you attach to the trigger that is wider than the stock trigger. There is a thread about it somewhere, I'll look for it.

They generally do not come stock on the phantom, but you can get a shoe for less then $5 usually from any number of vendors.


Here is the shoe itself...



Here is how a trigger shoe fits on a trigger (this one is not on a phantom though)



Here is one installed on a phantom trigger...



Get the picture? It took me a while to understand as well, but it made perfect sense once I actually picked up my phantom and saw it there.
Props to Medic.
