Ok here's the deal. I'm selling my ion stuff for $250 (outragiously low price).
anyway, i have a friend here in town who is basically a smart parts/ALL paintball gun technition. He has a used Shocker that he has cleaned up, tuned up and tested and it works perfect, plus it comes with dye stickies, freak kit, ect. All of that for $250!

but on the other hand, i'd LOVE/ secretly kill...to have a new Phantom ( a little more expensive, but well worth it).

but here's the delema, i'm on a speedball team (yeah, kill me for it) and that's all i played this summer. We don't have ANY good places to play good woodsball (that's where the phantom would come in).

I'd love to have the phantom, but there really isn't much of a use, and that's a killer deal on a shocker.

so what do you guys think?

Now, if I was a captious, boasting freak, I'd say "this belongs in such and such forum, and not in lounge, blah blah, I'm a mod wanna-be", and not give any advice in my post. but no. I say Shocker.

1), you're on speedball team
2), you'll be happy you did so. A pump is nice and classy, but in the end, what are you going to destroy with, more?...
3), the deal on the shocker is to die for, as long as it's legit.

Get what you'd get more use out of, which seems like the Shocker.

Get the shocker and then if you don't want it sell it for way more than you bought, and then buy the phantom.

Depends, have you played pump before? I play airball with my phantom, and it's not much harder than with the timmy. If you've never played pump though, get the shocker.


Try both guns if possible. Never buy a gun without trying it.

I'd say go with the shocker for now, you can turn around and sell it for more later if you choose to.

I'd say the Phantom IF you have good aim and are extremly quick when it comes to popping your head in and out and such. I don't care what any one here says. Pumps DO have a place on the speedball field.

First off, phantoms are very at home on a speedball court. Secondly, this is you Enders War, Phantoms can "destroy" just as much as a Shocker, in capable hands.

Go phantom if you don't want to be on a team for awhile, just playing for fun (unless you get 2 markers), and want to improve your skills.

Get a Shocker if you want to play the same way you were with your Ion, except a little blingier.



If you like showing off, you will get a lot more on the field comments on a nice phantom than a nice shocker.

See if it were me, I would pick the phantom :ghillie: Though I already own a phantom so yeah........Shockers aren't appealing to me at all so I have a pretty biased opinion on this.

But who says pumps are only for woodsball? I bet you'll have more fun with the phantom, but I'm sure you'll get more eliminations with the shocker.

And with practice you can get just as many eliminations with a phantom :D But heck, try and get both.

This seems like solid reasoning to me.

I wouldn't be able to buy a good deal off my friend then turn around and make a profit off of it, I would feel like a total jerk
