So I just have to ask, my friend is buying a phenom when he already has a G5. He is telling me that the phenom destroys the SP1 because of the fact that it can still shoot without a battery and will be smoother shooting and more efficient than my SP1. What does the TechPB community think of this?

The SP1 will be smoother, but the Phenom should be a bit more efficient. I like what Tippmann has with the mech/electro capability on the fly, but it is not important, nor have I ever been in a situation where I've needed it in my 15 years of paintball.

 

Plus, I always prefer to use an actual loader of my own choosing, than be forced to use a Cyclone. Not that there's anything wrong with a Cyclone per se, as I have one on my A5, but overall a loader of your own choosing is better in the long run.

We only get fills to 3k so I don't know how many shots he'll get off of that. I usually get my hopper and 2 pods

The SP-1 might be slightly less efficient, but I can guarantee it will be much smoother, and allows you to use your own loader. 

In my mind?

SP-1 blows the Phenom out of the water.

I'd go SP1, especially with the Phenom being pricier. Smoother, centre feed, silent (unlike the Phenom which is cannon loud), impossible to break paint. Weight on the Phenom is good for its size though, especially considering its metal, unlike the SP1.

He's determined on the phenom, the guy is selling it for $350. It's the UMP version

He will either love it or realize he over paid for it the minute he uses it.

That's both good and bad in my opinion. I keep a tippmann as a loaner because you can't break one (for the most part)

I'd go with the Phenom, SP1 is awesome but the Phenom is an excellent gun in it's own right.

Thing is he uses an aluminum tank and wants to use the stock on the phenom and has no way to run a remote
