Here is a look at my phantom which I finally got the way I want.
Specs:
Completely black body (White writing has been removed)
Spring Kit
Clear Grips
Clear Plastic feed tube parts
Wevo undercocking kit
J&J barrel or stock barrel (which usually shoots better)
3.5 oz CO2 tank

im not a huge fan of the black on clear, it just makes it look, naked i suppose like its not all put together or something

that aside 5/10
Purpose of the clear feedneck is so I can see how much paint I have left. When I can only hold 12 paintball's. Knowing if I have 3 or 8 paintballs makes a huge difference. The Clear grips and end cap are simply for looks, but it looks silly when only one part is clear.

5/10.. ouch I feel some pump hate... haha thumup:

naw i still like it, i just dont give points for owning a specific marker, i go by what you have done to it that was not on it from the factory (what makes it YOUR marker)

haha o me and trbo go way back.. haha

I don't plan on putting more money into it, but you really can't do all that much to a phantom. What do u think it needs trbo?

Their are no upgrades really to buy.. and if I want to keep it stock class the only thing I can think of would be a pressure gauge (pretty much pointless) and a shut off valve for changing CO2...mmmm now that I think about it.. I might do that.. haha

well im always a fan of anything custom (not like, "i bought this and put it on!" but CUSTOM), i dont remember who it was but there was another pump on here a while back that had an old CF barrel chopped down to make the feed tube, i thought that was pretty slick, any custom annos, beyond that i like to see elbow grease, you can do a lot for the look of a marker with some simple polishing or surface finishing, there has to be ways of polishing down the black ceramic on the barrel to get it to more closely match the black gloss on the marker, or the other way around for instance

mmm I typically use the stock barrel but I'll think about it. Thanks for the idea

Really just wanted an all black gun. The only "custom" thing I did was remove the writing on the side of the phantom so its all black, but that wasn't that hard. Just paint thinner and rubbed it.

Stripe it in a silver or a muted grey. It'll give it personality without too much contrast.

I like. Lean and elegant, not too much flash. points given for the clear feed tube/clear grips. If I saw it for sale, I'd definitely drool a bit.

8.5/10

Kind of a lack of color, not a big fan of dull colors like black. Grips are.... Eh. If I could recommend something though, if you get a 15 round feed tube u can reload without having too be completely out of paint, I.E. having two balls left and then reloading. If you don't like the length you can always trim it down to 11 12 or 13 ball capacity., I would shave it down to 12, max.

Anyways, 6/10

No pump hate btw ;)
