I played a scenario here in Hawaii in February with a guy with a Blazer. It was incredibly quiet. I think his Ricchocet hopper was noisier. Unfortunately, that day I was running my Mini so I can't directly compare the Blazer and the Phantom but I was amazed how quiet the Blazer was. If I sold my Mini and my A5 (and just about everything else I own ), I'd get that Blazer. (Except I'd change the nickel accents to black. Personnal choice.)

If you want the finest mech marker money can buy, get the blazer. They are super quiet, the pneumatics are usually louder than the firing. Dead on Accurate. Easy to clean. Heaven in a marker. My teammate said it best about his Blazer, "I honestly don't feel worthy to be using such a fine piece of craftsmanship." I feel the same way most of the time.
If you want the challenge and fun of pump, then get the phantom. It is also 1/3 the cost of the Blazer. So you could just keep saving up and get the blazer in a few months.
Personally, though i love PPS with all my heart and soul, think you can learn more about the game and have more fun with the pump.

Unless you want to play pump (and it isn't for everyone) I'd get the Blazer I'm wishing I had bought one earlier they are autocockers for people that don't want to deal with autocockers.

You have my exact problem... except I don't have an etek. I'll tell you what, you get a blazer I'll get a phantom and we can switch every now and then.
