Ive been running a CP gas-thru and an asa on my open class phantom with a 50 rd and 50/4500. I dont want to run back bottle anymore and was thinking of either running a 12 gram changer or a 13/3000 in the chamber(?) threads (where the reg/gas-thru goes). I know some of you guys will say that it's all personal opinion, but I want to know what your opinions are. How long is a 13/3000? How heavy is it? Is it really uncomfortable to use compared to a 12 gram changer? Thanks for any replies! I also only use 50 rounds in a game, I dont take any extra paint.

Edit: this probably should have gone in the vs forum... Sorry

Well I managed to squeeze out 100+ ball out of my phantom and personally I would keep it the way it is and swap tanks, more comfortable imo.

12g wise I've been able to get 20-30 usable shots per 12g so if you like to be light and plan on only 50 balls a game this is the way to go and get like a wristband to hold 1-2 extra 12g

For me 13cui bottomlined as in your pic, pocket hopper, 50rd pod and i'd ready to mow people in the face

I had a 13/3k once and hated it. It was too short and too skinny for me when on a bottom-line setup on my phantom, but too long and awkward to use in a vertical setup. I instead opted for a 45/45 on a bottom-line and never looked back.
However, on my micro-phantom that I run pistolero-style, a 12-gram dropout changer is perfect.

for me the convenience of constant air is just too much compared to 12'ies and it's much more expensive for me to use 12 grams. so i roll with a 68/45 or 13/3k

No worries I try. What would be pretty bad ass is rocking a phantom with an AGD 6 pak

Was almost able to do that before a guy sniped my bid at the last second on ebay. I was pissed.
