i guess you've had a lot of bad experiences, but they are not typical.

Don't know about the Phenom, but the X7 has too many damn parts that are totally unecessary and only there for cosmetics and aesthetics.

When I mentioned they changed the valve, it might not be something most people would notice. Essentially what they did is changed out the valve oring that seats against the tombstone to a perprietory seal. I don't think they really told anyone about it. Regardless, the new seal has been causing a lot of leaking problems out of the box. And because the new valves are milled for the new seal, you need to completely replace the valve to remedy the leak... That is until Tippmann decides to send out the new seal in parts kits, but I don't see that happening anytime soon.
So no. It's not that I have had bad experiences with being an end user, that part has been good. I've had bad experiences trying to get guns working for other people. And it's because I take notice to changes like I've stated that I can make suggestions to my customers on reliable gear, which sad to say hasn't included a Tippmann product for a little while...

All Hail Harb!
I got an A5 when they first came out and I hated it. I sold it and continued to use my 98.
