X7 Phenom

What are the performace differences between the x7 phenom paintball guns?

I Going to be getting one but don't want to over pay for something i don't need:

So what are the major differences in the electronic and mechanical X7 phenoms

The X7 Phenom is Tippmann's first attempt to step out of the 1990's and move on from the simplistic blowback design. Both mechanical and electronic X7 phenom's use an electro-pneumatic design which has been used on mid-range markers for...close to a decade. There's nothing really super new or innovative about what they've done. All the advantages they brag about is simply the core advantages of any elecro-pneumatic marker over a blowback. It's the marketing department trying to spin everyone up into thinking it's new and cool. The mechanical version simply uses mechanical means to trigger the solenoid to fire. It doesn't use a sear directly on the bolt, per se, but one could argue it's still a sear design. The electronic version is more like all the other electro-pneumatic markers. It's just a microswitch behind the trigger to tell a circuit board to send a signal the solenoid to fire. This allows you to make adjustments via the circuit board (firing modes, etc). Obviously the electronic version would be more desirable.

And they both still use that damned tippmann cyclone feeding system. That thing is so stupid. While I'll admit it's nice to not need batteries, it's still powered by air. So it's eating up air from your tank you could be using to fire more paint (a large chunk at that). So Tippmann's claim to 1400 balls per 68/4500 is complete BS. Plus I've seen it blend paint more times than I can count. And just look at it! You KNOW that's a royal PITA to clean once paint is broken in there. Thanks but no thanks. I'll just use a 9V battery. lol

But all in all, the X7's are all over priced. You can get an electronically controlled electro-pneumatic marker for 200 bucks all day long. The GOG eENy. Heck, it's only $250 with the Blackheart board installed. It's a lighter more refined system that could stand up to the X7 any day of the week. The eENy is, essentially, the reincarnation of the Smart Parts ION. Which was the go-to bang for the buck mid-range marker for years until Smart Parts went under.

if you like making your paintball marker look like a real gun, then sure. I guess the Tippmann does that better. But that's not going to make you shoot better, hide better, play better or intimidate anyone. I'll take the GOG eNVy over the X7 any day of the week.
