Hey guys, now in a dilemma between a semi or a pump. Been thinking about a phantom. Was thinking of an SP-1 before but now looking at a pump haha
Have a few questions:
1) what gun to buy?? CCI Phantom Markers | Paintball Gear Canada
They all look like the same gun, but I have no friggen clue what w/ 45 Bottomline #-1011-45-50 w/ 45 #2011-45 and all that crap means.
2) I think I saw a vid of a guy not using a hopper with one of these. What gun/upgrades does this? I think the balls were inside the gun or something. All I know is that I want a Phantom with a vertical air.
I've seen pics of guys with larger tanks in the vertical thing, are they just buying a normal 9oz CO2 or something? or a phantom specific tank?
I'd like to use air if possible
Is this the gun that carries the balls inside it? Phantom Stock Class Vertical Air w/ 45 #2011-V-45 | Paintball Gear Canada
3) Should I upgrade the Phantom barrel, do other companies even do phantom threads?
4) Besides being a pump, what makes people love phantom over other pumps? I hear about them being accurate etc., but aren't all markers pretty close in terms of performance (besides bps)
EDIT: and how many balls would you get out of the air before needing to refill. Obviously looking at a pump I'm not the kind of guy that uses lots of balls, but it'd be nice to not have to refill after every game (especially if they charge you standard rate or something since it's an unusual size, don't even know if some people would know how to fill it correctly)
I've seen pics of guys with larger tanks? Are these phantom specific? Or did they go out and buy a 9oz CO2?
I'd like to use air if possible, just not sure if it's a phantom air tank or if CO2 is the norm for pump (I thought CO2 had velocity spikes)
Also, what length barrel, I'm tempted to just go the 14", but I'd like to hear what other Phantom users say
