I've been taking a gander at getting a brass barrel for my phantom, but I've heard back and forth that either stock phantom barrels are the best, or brass barrels are the best. I'll be getting an 11-12 inch barrel double vented if I decide on getting brass, but I'm still not sure if there would be enough of an increase in performance to make the $133 worth it. Help me decide?
Yeah I use an M-16 grip, wanna fight about it?

Best webcomic ever.

They both shoot extremely well. In my opinion it isn't really worth it. The efficiency is close to the same. Unported Palmer's is a bit more efficient, but they are both very efficient. Like most barrels they are pretty similar in terms of accuracy. The biggest difference is that a double ported brass barrel will be more quiet.

One thing people also tend to overlook is the weight. A lot of people say they don't care about the weight, but on a marker the weight of a Phantom having a really heavy barrel like Palmer's does change the feel of the marker.

I would skip out, the stock barrel for the phantom is about as good as it gets. I feel like it would be a waste of $130.
