Well it depends on what kind of setup you want. The Phantom Bottom line uses a hopper and a co2 tank, it would be good if you want a setup close to a semi or don't want to worry about having to reload every 10-20 shots. The Phantom VSC is pretty much the ultimate challenge. It is powered by small 12g co2 cartridges that get around 30-50 shots each (can also be powered by a co2/hpa tank, just take off the 12g quick changer), and uses a feed tube that holds 10-20 shots instead of a hopper. Also with the VSC, you have to do what is called "rock and cock". This means after every shot you have to point the gun downward to get the ball to feed into the gun. Overall I would say get the bottomline if you want a setup close to a semi, and get the VSC if you want a big challenge and like the idea of not having a hopper/co2 tank.
