You could order from Horizon Paintball Link.. Thery're based out of British Columbia. Alot less than Florida.

Cheers,

Ahh! How could I forget?

I've heard nothing bad from these guys and would strongly recommend ordering from them because you will also be dodging duty fee's when it comes across the U.S. border.

Tallying up what I need from horizon I arrive at:
$308.95CAD + Shipping + 10rnds + caps

My guess is it'll be ~$330

Calculations from Wevo
$323.65 CAD

Basically they're pretty equal. I know people who've ordered from Wevo so I'll probably stick with them.

50 tubes is good. You probably won't carry them all on you anyway. But... it is REALLY nice to have... 200ish extra!



Personally, I would say "No, don't get a Phantom, get a new Sterling!" But.... there is way too many Phantom lovers to argue this point. You nelsoners sicken me! :D

Go with Horizon. There's absolutely no point in ordering something from Florida when you have a cheaper, quicker alternative inside your own country. I have been ordering from Horizon since he started his store, and I've met him (Reiner) in person a couple times at his TNT Pump days. He's also a main sponsor of the Phantom Owner's Group. He has single handedly supplied Vancouver Island with most of its Phantoms - I suggest you give him a chance.

When ordering from the states, you also have to consider the fact that it is very likely you will be charged heavy duties when your items cross the border. I've noticed that customs has been cracking down, and I'm looking at a ~$200 fee for bringing my Nasty across.

Wow I've never seen a duty fee that steep. My C3 just crossed with $0 on it not too long ago.

Obviously, the customs official was going to buy it but you beat him to it. Thats why he has you pay all that.

I did some math work and horizon is ~10-15$ cheaper before shipping. I'm awaiting a reply for their shipping charge.
