My phantom shoots 280 with a 14in barrel and if i remeber correctly it drops all the way down to 220FPS when i swap on the 6in.
Yeah, if you shoot rapidly with it, it'll drain that powerlet quick. Tom Kaye says: "The Sydarm is spring fed like the Eagle and gets about 15-18 shots from a 12 gram if you shoot slow, about 8 rapid fire. ( its mostly used for police training they don't shoot much).

For what it is, that is acceptable since, again, it is not intended to simulate reloading.
