Can we take a moment and appreciate that we're talking about one product made by one guy and yet everyone's setup/preferences run the gamut?
Nice, Glaman! Buying new is a good choice. You seemed to figure out what you liked pretty quick. And now you have a marker that can grow with you.
I personally sucked my first couple times out, but it made me realize that there is a whole world of progression in front of me. Same game, new challenge!
Last time out, I gogged this guy who was playing really good pump all day (field veteran). I earned that kill. He'd been firing heat seeking paintballs all day. He was shocked; we had a chuckle after. I'm still proud of that kill.
Welcome to the club!

I've owned a handful of Phantoms, as well as a Sterling, Sniper, SS-25, and probably a few less notables that I'm forgetting. (I think I had a lone PGP once, my only foray into brass)
I always come back to the Phantom because it is about as simple as it can get, with a near infinite amount of ways to make it your own. Its also very simple to tune, consistent and reliable.
I prefer a stock class feed with CA. I'll carry 20-40 10 round tubes depending on the game type.
The Sterling and Sniper are much better Auto-trigger platforms due to their weight (My opinion, your mileage may vary), and I enjoy using both of those... but they lack the elegance of a nelson.
The Phantom in my hands just feels right, a natural extension and once I get one dialed in, a scalpel on the field.
