I've got a bunch of Phantom parts laying around from when I closed my store up, I'm going to have to compleatly rebuild mine and see if maybe there is just something wrong somewhere. Even how mine sits now its still better then my P68SC though.

Please don't take my words as bashing Carters, I may come off that way. I love the work he does, and I have enjoyed every Carter I have owned (even the annoying banana trigger one), but it is hard to beat Phantoms (they are the most refined a Nelson can be, in my opinion).

That is not to say that Carters don't have amazing fit/finish and build quality, they really do, but you pay a premium for that. Try to get your Phantom working, but look into a Mini-Comp anyways, because Carters are awesome. Just don't buy it thinking it will shoot circles around your Phantom.

You're gonna need to chrono that way up, it was shooting 220 +/- 3 or so since I have been playing indoor with it all winter, you may even want to go with a harder main spring.

edit, At like 270 fps I was getting an average of 45-50 shots during game play, one very hot and humid day during a big game I got 110 shots of two twelve grams during a fierce fire fight, then I ran out of paint, but there was maybe one or two good shots left.

I change after 4 tubes (40 shots) on my Mini-comp, I could shoot more, but the couple times I've tried I've never mad it very far past 40. Chrono'd with first shot around the 285 mark.

Edit: I know what idkfa is talking about. Phantoms are pure performance, completely modular and well priced. A Carter is generally a single setup (VSC or BBA), and doesn't have the versatility that way. What it does have over the Phantom (in my eyes) is that feeling of luxury

Hope I dont need to go buy a new main spring, that would be very irritating.
