Review: I got my Timmy used, but it still rips like no other. Even with the older SOB board, mine still can hit 15-16 with no trouble. Let's go to the strengths...

-Efficient as crap- a case off a 68/45

-Quiet- with a nicely ported barrel, can be whisper quiet. Puff Puff...

-Lighter than most guns in its class, especially the new models (geez, sounds like a car commercial...)

-Has excellent eyes; don't worry about using a Revvy. The first day I played with it, a case of $30 seconds through it, NO chops or barrel breaks.

-FAST! Has 3-way adjustable trigger, and I have mine set up just right...so smooth and buttery...it rips.

Upgrades- a Classic can take the upgrades that a 2k2 can take (clamshell, WAS/Frenzy, all that good stuff)

Consistent- with a high-flowing tank and the right sequence for setting up the regs...279, 280, 280, 280. Sick.

Simple- just needs lube in a few places, and you're good. It's basically a Spyder with a ram instead of a hammer...but don't take that as a bash, it just means that there's less to worry about.

Now, (sigh), to the weaknesses.

Expensive- Alias, ND, Dark, Atomix, RL (rare, though) will all cost you dearly (1300+). It's not that it isn't worth it, just that it's a bit much. Luckily, Classics and 2k2s can be had for anywhere from 500-600, and they're only a tad bit slower, due to a longer bolt design.
Conclusion: All in all, I am very happy with my Timmy. It can throw ropes with the best of them, despite its relative age. Try a Classic at your local field and you'll love it!
