is my hero
The Legend of Mike Casady
So i picked up a Phantom off a guy that won it in a tournament in brand new condition. He said it was gold, but when I got it, it looked a lot more yellow to me. I played with it shortly thereafter and was hooked and wanted to add a stock to it. I checked out phantomonline.com and wevo and the only ano color listed there is gold, which did look a little darker than mine but I didn't see yellow as a choice so I ordered a gold stock from wevo.
When it arrived, the stock was definitely gold and my gun was definitely yellow. Curious about this, I emailed Mike to see if he produced the phantom in yellow. Turns out he does make yellow phantoms but not very often (which makes me like it even more if its a little rare). He provided me with a picture of a yellow stock he had on hand next to a gold one and a brass ano'd one for comparison.
I took a chance and asked him if I could possibly exchange my gold stock for the yellow one he had on hand fully expecting him to decline. Now I had heard that he was awesome and provided outstanding customer service but didn't expect him to ask for my address to ship the yellow stock to me. I thanked him and offered to at least pay the shipping or something but he just said we'd call it even.
Wow. It was my error after all and I should have done a better job identifying what I had. Plus, I bought it from Wevo and not Mike so he had no responsibility at all in this. I'm still blown away.
Thought I'd add my testimony to the pile in case anyone had a doubt about purchasing a Phantom.
Long Live Mike Casady!

I got a phantom yesterday and called him with some questions about any parts I might need or might be missing (got it used) and now I have a rear thumb screw, velocity adjuster, detent ring set, and new feed tube in the mail. FOR FREE! Such a nice guy and very patient. Handled all my questions perfectly!
