I'm having some trouble deciding which spring kit/package to get.
On wevo they list 3 types.
1. CCI Phantom Spring Kit $4.99
2. Maddman AC Spring kit $8.99
3. Phantom spring & seal parts kit $12.99

I wouldn't mind getting extra additional parts, but I'm not entirely sure which one to get...

go with the spring and seal kit. the maddman kit works with phantoms but is really for autocockers. and you get some replacement parts with the kit. You won't use them often but it's nice to have them around for when you eventually need to replace an oring or something

I suppose to some degree that it depends on exactly which marker you're using the kit(s) for.

I use one of the Maddman springs on an A5 for the sole purpose of increasing velocity whilst decreasing pressure via a stab...& it works like a charm.

I intend to use the springs on my phantom, and was considering which one to buy, if that helps

the spring and seals kit is a life saver! Worth every dime when you need to do a field repair in staging.

That's what I was thinking :) I think I will just pick up one of those since it seems it comes with some valuable additional parts.

Thanks for all your help!

You can also flip the feedgate around to get some more use out of them.
