Best upgardes for a Phantom?

I am pretty new to Phantoms and I just picked one up off of here and it has the VSC and open class options on it. I was wondering what would be some good upgrades for around $200? Thanks in advanced for any help!

The only thing Phantoms need is a barrel that is suited to the paint. Sadly, Mike still sells a rather over-bored barrel for most paint. Other than that, it's all personal preference and aesthetics.

Freak bore the original barrel is the First thing I would do.

ASP Detent if you really feel like it but with a freak bored barrel it is less necessary...

Other things that are nice to have but totally not needed might be
-RTR boomerang,
-T or L stock if needed,


You are probably better off spending the money on a 10rnd tube harness really

I really do not like the stocks on it for me. Makes me feel awkward. Yeah I am getting it freak bored as soon as it gets here. I also do need to get a 10rnd harness.

It is basically the best regulator you can get for a phantom. Not the most necessary item of all time, but it regulates very precisely.
