Flex Valve Technology

The X7 Phenom is designed with Flex Valve Technology. Since this is an air efficient marker, the innovative Flex Valve technology it was constructed with will keep it operating at less than 300 fps. By lowering the air pressure this much, they created a marker that was very air efficient and had minimal recoil. As a result, you can fire a lot more high caliber paintballs with the same air amount.

Design

The X7 Phenom only weighs 4 lbs and the barrel has a length of 9.5 inches. This brings the total length of the marker to 19.75 inches. This lightweight design is only made possible because of its aluminum body. Field stripping is fast and easy as a result of this design, thanks to the PushPin feature. The best part is that the magazine can be removed quickly and there is an extra storage area inside of the magazine.

While many other markers may claim to have a military-like design, this Tippmann paintball gun  to actually have a professional military design. In other words, it has a low-profile design and a hopper that is located in a convenient area so that you will always see what you’re shooting at with no impairments. The internal regulator of the marker allows you to adjust the air pressure so that the velocity can be balanced. There is a diagram built into the marker which lets you quickly raise or lower the speed. This means that no memorization is needed. The ease of using the regulator will make it convenient when you’re in a desperate gaming situation and need to adjust your shots’ velocity.  

Upgrades

There are lots of ways to upgrade your top rated marker. The most popular upgrade is using the Flat-line barrel. There is no limit to the number of updates available, especially when it comes to the variety of aesthetic upgrades. The X7 Phenom has a Picatinny rail and a second rail for adding new scopes, handles, and sights. You will be able to remove the front sight and rear sight at any time. And for those who feel the it is too heavy, then you can add a remote line upgrade to the marker that balances out the weight.

A lot of users of the phenom paintball gun like the convenience of how you can upgrade it to an electronic version from its mechanical version. All you need to do is replace the standard grip with an E-grip. There are just endless amounts of upgrades available.
