This gun shoots better then my axe I got this gun as a back up and now it's my primary gun on the field. Sometimes I even use it in speedball :D Very pleased with the gun.
Ok, so I've had the Phenom for little over a year now. I used it right out of the box with no problems what so ever. I noticed it shot way more consistently than any of my other guns, but that was to be expected with all the internals of the Phenom. So, I was very happy with my purchase. After a bit of using it as stock, I noticed little things here and there, read up on how I could further improve this stock beast. Added accessories: Tech T Bad Karma Bolt w/ Phaze 5 fitting, Tech T SS Vortex mod with Lightning rod, Tech T squishy paddles, JJ 8pc barrel kit.I also have other accessories, but those were the ones that helped me sculpt my BEASTY LOVE IT
This is hands down the best gun Tippmann is currently making. Much more accurate out of the box than a 98 or A-5 and also much, much, more efficient with air. The stock barrel does quite well also, although an upgrade to the Tippmann 14 inch at some point is worth the investment. I have personally shot well over 10,000 balls through my Phenom and have had less than 5 breaks (I am using the higher end paint). Like all Tippmann products, this gun is built like a tank and has some heft, but is not at all too heavy or cumbersome. I have not had any issue with air leaks or really anything for that matter, the gun has been flawless and I am very happy with the purchase. If you can afford it, this is the gun to get. Do the regular maintenance as outlined in the manual and you'll be able to enjoy it for years.
