As far as keeping the phantom lines looking clean, I'd bet a stock class feed block with a 10 round tube crammed would be best. But, there's a gap between the feed block and breech opening. That leads me the think about an open class feed neck adapter with a solid walled, 90* stick feed or maybe a cram and jam setup.

I don't plan to play in a monsoon, but damp balls are hard to handle. You can quote me on that.

Just get some clear shrink tube. We use it in electrical all the time to go over crimp lugs. Just remember it ahrinks down to about 60% of its original diameter. I can get some out of my shop van tis weekend and do a sample on my feed tube if you all would like to see. Just takes heat from a hair dryer to shrink it down easily without causing discoloration or burn marks that a flame would cause.

I was talking about making an actual clear feed tube, not just a cover

Oh I see. Well, let's see what you come up with. I'd guess that a 10 tube with some sort of feed gate could be a start, but it doesn't have much length left after cutting the closed end off. :/

You could always make a feedtube out of PVC. Pretty easy to do:

I think that's the direction I'm probably headed. The hurdles I want to conquer include water resistance, easy of use, and *ahem* visibility of balls.

I'm thinking 3/4 schedule 40 pipe with a 90* elbow and a straight fitting on the end. It'll be just long enough to hold a 10 round tube for the cram and jam effect. I'm considering craft foam inside the straight fitting to ensure a snug fit and water resistant seal.

Look around hard enough you may be able to find some clear or see through pipe. That would be neat.

If someone has a clear acrylic feed block for a phantom, I'd be interested. I know they aren't as robust as the delrin, but it'd be something to try.

Thanks
