Default Re: Phantom vs. Pump Cocker

I would get a phantom. Lighter, more reliable, doesnt need upgrades, more efficient, uuhh, what else. Smaller profile. Easy transition from stock class feed to hopper feed. Did i mention uber sexy? Yeah, phantom all the way in my book. I have owned 3, and loved them all.

They play at cannons paintball outside of columbus I believe. There's three main guy's rolling some sick pump's and then some other local's that pick them up occasionally. Let's get this crappy winter over with and I'll see if I can get them and you guy's to all meet up somewhere.

Dragon - I don't know my preference, as I've never used a Phantom. I have used a pump cocker which I liked, besides the efficiency. When you are shooting this little paint, bad efficiency doesn't really bother me much though.

Moe - They are very sexy.

Otter - Thanks for the link.

QAZ - Sounds good!

I haven't seen any recently, but I'd check PBnation for the best prices. But you will need to do a little surfing (or searching if you're on late enough). Trust me, it takes a while.

Anyways, I personally think a Phantom would be the better choice for a stock-class only/pump only player, as its purpose is only as a pump. They're much lighter, smaller, and much better out-of-the-box than an Autococker is.

But, here is where I might stray from that. If you're a 50/50 between Pump/Stock and Semi/Whatever-else, I'd go with the Autococker, unless, of course, if you currently have another semi you usually play with. But if not, the Autococker would be the way to go, as it is A. Cheaper, as you said, B. Much more upgrade-able, which is so fun!, C. It can easily be switched from Mechanical/Electronic to Pump just by swapping the front block out, D. If you decide to go stock class, you can easily make your own feed, as many have done.

Just my $0.02.

EDIT: Wow, I just realized how old this thread is, LOL.
Good times, good times.
