I will use it again this weekend and will report back with more info.

There's more similarity between an Ion and DM than between the Phenom and an Automag. The Phenom is only like an Automag in that they are blow forward, spring return. The actual pneumatics inside are very different. The Phenom is a Sheridan Equalizer. But with a better reg.

The real tale of the how well the marker performs will be told when I get a chance to use it at a scenario under all those conditions.
Take care and so far, I plan to keep this marker...it is well made, with all of Tippmann's reliability and a nice warranty, too.

It has been 290 at the field I have been playing at for over 10 years. Nearly all of the 30 scenarios I have been to have had the FPS limited to 290 as well.
Would it make you feel better to know that it shoots really, really well at 325FPS? We tested the Phenom with FPS ranging from about 220 up to 330. It shot most consistently (using DXS Bronze) at 285-300, with 290 being about optimum, for accuracy, distance and no chamber/barrel ball breakage.

I am amazed your flatline worked at such high speeds. Usually they prefer the 260 FPS range to shoot in. Sure you can crank up your speed higher to get longer distance, but you get a crap ton more wingers and off shoots. Granted i am going on three years now without a flatline, so maybe they somehow changed that...don't see how they could

I would love to play anywhere that the FPS is TRULY limited to 290. Many, many times (just stand near the Chrono, watch and listen) the markers being chrono'd are way above 300fps. The field may have a limit of 280 or 290, but...it is up to the player to have honor and follow the rules, whatever those rules are.
I wish everyone was as Chrono conscious on the field as they are on here!
Whether the field you play at has a limit of 280 or 290, follow the rules, it will be a funner day.
The X7 w/flatline shoots quite well at velocities well above 260 (the ol A5 flatline loved that FPS).
