I'm on Animals. Phantoms will undoubtedly give you more support. They also purportedly raise the heel more, which can take some getting used to. I mulled getting some, but ultimately decided to stick with Animals. Just depends what you're looking for. If you've considered going hard shell, they might be worth checking out.

I think Doug is right, again.. Probably a little less wiggle room in the phantoms..

I got my first up close look at the Phantoms last week. Everything that Doug said sounds right on. Look like they have great support but from what I have read if you have them tightened up releasing in a hard crash might not happen. From what I saw I would have to agree. If you are considering the Phantoms I would give hardshells a serious look as I think the hardshells would be safer.
