Cheapest place to buy Phantoms....

Where is it? Is it directly from them or from a place like bunkerboyz.com or something?

Thanks.

probably cheapest is used..

and there really is no worries buying a phantom used.. for a couple reasons

1. they are tanks, they can take a beating and work, its an old perfected pump, what do ya expect lol.

2. most people that own phantoms are real paintballers, no newbs is gonna wanna play pump or stock class.. this means they probably were experienced and knew to take care of their equipment

How strong is that? Looks like it could be dangerous.

Sweet, I posted there to see what he'll quote me. I also sent an email to WWA.

We'll see who can get my gun cheaper.


ALSO - should I get a stock class feed tube AND a gravity fed feed tube? Do you guys switch off?

It is very strong for what it is, the only way it will break is if you grab it and pull really hard on it.

I dont really like phantoms for direct feed, they feel off balanced and dont feed that well with a hopper. But if you want to play stockclass IMO the phantom with a VSC phantom with 45 grip is the best thing you will play stock with.

So does everyone agree that 30.00 extra bucks for a center - vertical feed is a waste of money? Should i just get the stock horizontal feed?

I had a terrible experience with White Wolf. It took him 57 days to deliver a plain silver phantom. To make it worse, he ignored e-mails and was extremely rude. He said the delay occured because he shipped the gun to the wrong person. No apology, though.

Here is his unsatisfactory Better Business Bureau rating:

Better Business Bureau of Northeast California

The information in this report has either been provided by the company, or has been compiled by the Bureau from other sources.

The Bureau's file includes one complaint that was sent to the company but not answered. Therefore, under national Better Business Bureau reporting policy, this company has an unsatisfactory record.
