Vertical Air vs. Bottom Line ASA
Just a quick question. I know that back bottle co2 is not great as sometimes the liquid co2 can get into the marker. I know that vertical air is good for this since the bottle is in the vertical position only gas escapes. With a bottom line asa, would this work just as good as the vertical asa for consistency as the bottle is mounted on a slight angle? And if I'm completely wrong with all of this then please just let me know.

the bottom lines on phantoms are at an angle but if you have to shoot down hill then the liquid can get in the system and cause spikes. i just anti siphoned all my tanks and added an expansion chamber on my vertical asa. now it is really consistant. was trying to use a reg and bottom line tank but kept getting varying feet per sec. gave up on the reg and just used an expansion chamber. i like having a stock to shoot with so the bottom line works great.

I haven't seen much difference between the two. Both *can* give you spikes if you're really running & rolling around. Both methods seem to behave a little better when the tanks aren't full. The mounting method I use depends on which tank size I feel like using.
The most consistent I've had a Phatom is when I had a 9 oz on a bottomline running through a cheap reg on the vertical ASA. But it looked too clunky, so I went back to 12ies most of the time.

My personal preference on Phantoms is SC feed, back bottle. The reason?
Fully convertible with no major component changes. Swap to a true stock class (with AT ) or a true open class, by screwing on a centerfeed adapter and using your tank as a stock. Maximum flexibility. Vertical air would be my choice for a "hybrid" gun (either open class 12 gram, or stock class 3.5 oz tank).
