I believe the cyclone upgrades will work. The cyclone appears to be the same size and design.

No, they redesigned the cyclone. They reworked the materials as well as the design too.

Yeah, but I bet the paddles still fit, I bet the cyclone ratchet will fit and possibly the lightning rods. NO? I guess I'll have to take it apart.

There shouldn't be a need to mod the cyclone. They have a newer design and they tested the squshies also. If you want to, go ahead, but you shouldn't need to for the Phenom. I talked to the engineer at length about that yesterday.

I was planning on just doing some testing to see. But I wouldn't put it past TechT to come out with new Phenom parts.

Man I cant wait to see the Phenom fire!  I like what I heard about two new markers on the market right now:  The TM15 and the Phenom.  Both sound like super bad a$$ milsim markers.  It just shows you how much the industry has changed in the last 3 years. 

hey how do you change the battery in the Phenom, is it hard to get to?

The Phenom shoots very nicely.  Smoother and much quieter than the X7 pureblood.
 
I'm not a HUGE fan of how small it is, however as Conley has already demonstrated you can adjust size to taste with stocks, shrouds and the like.  It's a very nice marker, IMO.

In anticipation of the upcoming game at Tactical I took the plunge today and placed my order for the new Phenom. I should be receiving it on Friday, along with my new German fleck. Given my last experience with chopping balls at Tactical I am tempted to try and test fire the same brand of balls before the next game just to make sure I'm not going to have any problems with those thin skinned balls. Chances are it was the weather, but I want to eliminate as many variables as i can before the next game.

The air through adapters should be shipping soon. The designer sent me what he had. That means they are in production now.

Hey Phenom users..
Did you ever have a chance to really look at the cyclone feed?  Is the rachet, squishes, and etc the same as the X7 cyclone?  I know they modified the X7 alittle from the A5.
Just curious, is all.

it looks different...the paddles are green and softer.  The ratchet looks the same.  I'm thinking of ordering the spares kit just to see what's in it.  The marker only comes with one extra o-ring, the correct allen wrenches, a barrel sock, instruction, manual, and some lube (barrel grease/ratchet grease).

Hey sound like you guys have alot of experience with the Phenom.  I'm planning to upgrade my x7 but if this is working out of the box with out any internal upgrade needed then I rather sell my x7 and go with this one.  Let me know if this is a good idea.

Dude, I don't have one personally but I've seen all the guys using them, and let me tell you the second I get the chance to own one I'm making it happen. This g*n is amazing! I could go on and on talking about all the advancements they've made with this g*n, but I believe everybody else has already done so. Yes it is still and X7, butt the differences are almost night and day. Plus, I need a new project marker since I've modded out my X7.Unhappy Just another GREAT Tippmann product.

I like the trigger pull on my X7 e-grip better than my X7 Phenom.  I'm keeping both, they both have their place in my stable.

Heck yeah.! I should have updated this after I saw them in action at D-Day. I saw a lot of straight shootin and not one problem with anybodys g*n all day long. They're definetly worth upgrading and starting a new project.
