I just bought a phantom

I just bought a phantom. It isnt supposed to be here for a while, but I was wondering how much of a change is it from going from a decked out a-5 to a pump. Like in play style and so on.

Now you pop out, shoot one ball, and get the heck behind your bunker.
At least, thats how it is for me.

I was looking, and I really like the pbmafia leg harness so I might order one of those.

But anyhow. From first-hand experience, I wouldn't go with the leg harness. I'd either get a belt, a pack, or a wrist setup like I have. Whatever you do, I'd go capless. It just makes things easier when you just have to grab a tube, shove it in the phantom, and slide it back into the harness. I keep 5 12ies on my wrist and 5 tubes on my other wrist normally. For big scenario games, I keep an extra 15 tubes and 10 12ies in a belt. I've got my wrist rig capless and my belt normal, so that if I make any hard moves and lose tubes, I can just go back and pick them up. With a capless setup: if it falls out, it's gone. The only reason I suggest you stay away from leg rigs is thus: Crawling, you can lose / break tubes. When you slide, it's all too easy to drop some tubes or shatter them against your leg. Neither of these is very fun. I've broken and lost tubes with other setups, but not nearly as often.
Best of luck! If you've got any questions feel free to PM me.
^I think I'll just leave it that way. It suits me.

For 10 round tubes, I usually just cram them in my pocket. Since I just play in jeans, there is no limit to the number of those.
I don't know if it's just me, but my phantom is loud, so I figure a new barrel will help it. Since I just run a remote and stick it on a fatty pack with my crossfire tank, I dont know about 12-grams affecting it and whatnot.
Anyway, congratz on getting a phantom!
