The Phantom and Phantom Online Sold.

Copied this from Facebook. We all wish you the best Mike.

Sale of Phantom Announcement
Mike Casady, president of Component Concepts, Inc.
530 S. Springbrook Rd.
Newberg, OR 97132

I am pleased to announce the transfer of the Phantom product line of Component Concepts, Inc., to Extreme Velocity, Inc., DBA The value of our customers is of utmost importance and to ensure the on-going business success I am working with a new owner that appreciates the value of customer service and maintaining the quality of the Phantom line of paintball products.

Extreme Velocity the new owner of “Phantom Online” understands the product line and has been involved with pump action play for several years and is keen and capable of continuing the great customer support that CCI / Phantom is known for and promoting the potential of pump paintball play.

Phantom online will be working with the same vendors that I have for these past 30 plus years which will keep the high manufacturing standards that have sustained the Phantom brand.

As with many baby boomers reaching retirement, handing the rains over to someone else was a decision made easier knowing that Extreme Velocity also appreciates the value of supplying a quality product with outstanding customer support.

I wish to thank all the customers for your support over these last three decades and who knows you might even see the old man of pump action play at a field near you.

Warmest regards,

Mike Casady

Yup, just read that. Mike is well deserving a great retirement! New owner has tough shoes to fill. I am glad he found someone to carry on his legacy.

What would I give to see Mike play

Good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgement.

I'm happy to see that Mike found someone he believes can fill his shoes. The fact that the production process and suppliers will remain unchanged is also very encouraging. We all owe Mike a debt of gratitude for what he's done for paintball. I'd say his retirement is well deserved. Congrats, Mike and Extreme Velocity.

Wishing extreme velocity the very best in their endeavors to maintain and build the phantom brand. Keep it tight! The phantom has been the absolute cornerstone of nelson parts availability for years and I hope the new guys can keep this going with minimum nonsense.
