Yeah, until get more into stock class, can't really beat a Phantom. Not that I'm the first person to say this, but yeah, and a basic setup can be had for $150-$200 no problem.

I have a VSC phantom and an OC cocker with CCM pump kit, AT, and 86 frame. Both have unique fun things about them. It would be hard to pick my favorite. I usually start my day with the cocker and switch to the phantom as I get tired of carrying around the weight.
I like the pump feel of the cocker, the weight of the phantom. I personally find the cocker to be more accurate, but it could also be that I have a freak kit on it and the stock barrel on the phantom. That will all change when I get my ASP round head body.
So what's my point? Buy both!

take the time to check into the details behind your options
stare at them - if there is a local shop - handle them
make your choice based on the things you learn and what you experience
oh and rule #1
when you play do not be discouraged if things dont go your way right away - treat each time you are shot out as an opportunity to learn - why did you get hit - how did you get hit
take the time to learn your marker - how to care for it - how to fix it - what parts do you need for it - what tools - etc
take the time to prepare yourself - excercise some, stretch, have proper supplies (food/drink/painkillers)
oh yea - HAVE FUN
get friends together and see what folks like to do
you get the picture =)

If your still having trouble finding phantoms (like that's hard)
browsing TechPB's Pump section is a good search too. there wont be as many members on the forums with pumps. However, Anyone with a "Players Club" blue name, is a known good guy.
in order to get into PC you give name, address, phone number, ect ect so they are proved to be upstanding members who wont try anything funny.
Likewise a MCB membership has similar benefits. Low chance that a MCB member would try to pull a fast one.

Yield and Overcome...
Here's an idea:
Try out stock class play with your existing marker setup first. Walz makes excellent "Cram n' Jam" Stick feeds...you just put that in your feedneck instead of a hopper.
No need to buy a new marker to play with 10 round tubes. Try that a while and see if you like it!

A big decision to make is whether or not you want a removable barrel. Paint size varies so a barrel with insert options is a nice to have feature.
If that isn't a factor for you, a PGP or P68SC are gun options.
Nelspots can actually be bored for inserts but it's an added expense.
I strongly recommend markers with interchangeable barrels. Poor bore to paint match can cause inaccuracy and inefficiency.
I'm fond of offset stock-class Phantoms; you can get Phantom barrels bored out for inserts, or just buy the barrel pre-bored from Super Stanchy here on the forum.
On a budget, the old Trracer is good but alternative barrels may be difficult to find and you'd have some work to do to convert to stock class.
The new Empire Trracer is EXCELLENT and can be bought with a spring feed that's convertible to stock class. The barrel uses common Autococker threading. The new Empire Trracer is probably your best option if you're on a budget but want a high performance marker.

I have a maverick for sale, bucket changer included. I'd go with a nelson valve of some kind.
