Open class Phantom. Lapco sells stock class adapters that turn it into VF open class.

Yeah since that phantom offer fell through, I am begining to lean toward The Trracer. Seems like its a good starting pump-marker. However to my understanding CCi is a relatively small company(much like my beloved Tiberius) and I will keep my eye on them. for small business in a HUGE market!

When it's between the phantom and the trracer, I'd pick the phantom every time. It is just better in every way in my opinion (minus barrel options). But for the price the trracer is a DAMN good buy. You're great with either option, it's just that the phantom has more options and has much more of a quality feel. Plus I ****ing hate plastic triggers and trigger frames (trracer).

There are more bolt-on options for the Phantom (Probably), but the Trracer I've kept, while I've passed on every Phantom ever.

Well, because it has to roll over the surface, no? Like if you roll something across the smooth garage floor vs the rough driveway, it definitely rolls easier and further with less force on the smooth floor.

Well Castro, isn't your trracer like 80% phantom parts?

No, but I've seen one that is. Mine is actually stripped down a bit, used just for First Strikes.

Oh right! It was the infected (i think...) on MCB who swapped out all the trracer parts minus the body and pump handle for phantom parts. He did it with only minor mods too.

Other than the valve body and fitting placement, I don't see much advantage in swapping the parts.

Worst decision of my paintball life was getting rid of my phantom. They are built very well and their customer service is awesome. Only "upgrades" you really need is a freaked barrel.

I have learned that with my phantom if something is not performing right It can usually be fixed with a basic cleaning and oiling. My phantom has seen 3 owners and its shooting flawlessly and its original internals are in pristine shape. Its more expensive but you can configure them in almost any way you please. I have shot both and prefer my VSC phantom. Im not telling you what to do but this is what i prefer.

CCI is a one man show....I'd say that's a small company.
