Paintball
Experience:
3 years
Similar
Products Used:
Smart Parts Shocker 2003, DM4, DM5, Toxic Performance Matrix, and E - Bladed Auto Cockers.
Marker Setup: 2005 Bob Long Intimidator, Halo B w Rip Drive, Freak Kit, Hybrid Ratio Volumizer, Mac Dev Gladiator Regulator, Dragon Claw Trigger, System X On/Off Drop Forward, and a 98/4500 Cross Fire nitro tank.
Recommended
Upgrades:
None, I only have changed the things on my gun for person preference. The gun is perfect out of the box.
Strengths: Accuracy, Speed, Light Weight, Easy to adjust settings, and Excellent Milling.
Weaknesses: Price, and the manual is a peice of crap.
Review: - Accuracy
- Speed
- Light Weight

I used the following settings to test this marker. Dwell 8.0, Eye Mode Delay, Bip 0.5ms, Bolt 0.8ms, Deb 02.0, and Mbounce 00. I used Xbal gold paint and fired 2000 rounds no breaks hiting 18 Bps with out much effort. The gun lives up to its name in a good way it rips paint, not in the gun but at the target. I was using a freak system and my shots looked more like darts then paintballs.
Conclusion: If you have the cash flow get it, If not get an alias after shooting this gun I will never use my other markers again. Intimidators are insane markers I just regret wasting money on my other markers. I would have known how intimidators shot I would have never purchased anything else.

Well you were once a noob too and im sure you had some retarded questions at one point or another and you probably wouldnt have made it to the point were youre out without a little help. So stop being so harsh and help the curious little bugger out.

Yes this is more accurate than an 03 shocker. Im speaking from experience and traditionaly ive found that with a good paint to barrel match timmys are typically slightly more accurate although not by much and youd be better off to get the 700$ shocker or w/e rather than this 1400 dollar machine gun. The extra price tag isnt worth it if your looking for differences in accuracy, however if your big into cosmetics you will fin that this is one of the BEST looking guns out there with absolute SUPERB milling and anodizng. If you have any more questions just keep on leaving comments and ill answer them the best i can.

Please no one listen to this guy about anythign related to accuracy. Every gun is just as accurate as anyother if there is teh ssame consistant air pressure same paint and barrel match, same conditions, and no kick. Sure a timmy might be more accurate then a 30 dollar spyder but only because a spyder has alot more kick, and is nothing as near as consistant, which help with accuracy. And whether its open or closed bolt doesnt affect accuracy either. Dont call other people noobs if you have no idea what your talking about. If you dont believe me check out warpig.com , they wrought a whole huge article on the whole accuracy issue, and no marker is more accurate then another if all the conditions are the same. No way can you say a timmy is more accurate then a shocker or anyother marker for thst instance. Please dont fill all these people with abstract information. If you don tbelieve me yet go right to pbnation, and ask about accuracy. Learn your facts first big shooter.

Listen i work as a partime autococker tech localy and i know for a fact that not every gun is as accurate as another even with the same input pressure. Are you seriously telling me that an open bolt BLOWBACK marker such as a spyder will have the same inherent accuracy as an open bolt angel with the same paint and input pressure ? Now given that the angel is in fact a lower pressure gun than the spyder but you only specified "constant air pressure" wich could mean a varity of variables leaving your statement rather full of holes. Bottom line an blowbck marker will NEVER have the same accuracy as an electrpnuematic paintball gun. This is simply because all the timing peramiters are handled by a selenoid rather than just mechanical timing. You also failed to sight examples wich i did cite in my comment you criticized. If your going to criticize somone atleast back it up. I see no reason why people shouldnt listen to what i have to FACTUALY say.

Also i know there is really no discernable difference between open bolt and closed bolt (and i use cockers) other than gas efficency, Closed bolt uns are usually a bit more efficent bu thats the only real difference. Also i didnt call him a noob i stated that he was once one like me and you were once noobies. And i know all about warpig. BOTTOMLINE THOUGH a gun does not have the same accuracy as any other because THE CONDITIONS ARE NOT THE SAME IN THE REAL WORLD, they are only like that in a controlled enviroment so applying this to real life use is irellivant.

no gun is more accurate than another...so stop with the questions.


so wat ure saying is that the bolt, barrel, and etc have NOTHING to do with the accuracy of a gun because i think a barrel bent at a 175 degree angle would not be that accurate

COuld someone point me in th right directoin to learn all those terms like ASA, STO-ram, stuff like that? yes I am a noob, you can bash me if you want but it'll do no good over the net

Go up to the forums tab at the top of the page and click it, scroll down and theyre should be a new players forum were you can post any questions you have, also there is a newbi players forum on www.pbnation.com towards the top of the main page.

that cost waaaaaayyyyy too much.looks cool though
   

shot-on-sight Sunday, May 21st, 2006 | 4:28 pm PST
That suggested retail price is no longer accurate, not even ripper 2.5's are that expensive brand new. 05 rippers cost just over 1,000 brand new. Once you get into the highend market yes these guns are expensive but they do offer certain advantages and jaw dropping body design. To put it simply, if you like it and can afford it then you wont be dissapointed, i have a job making 12$ an hour and i buy some pretty high end stuff, but atleast i earn what i spend unlike many other people (ahem rich parents)
   

hedshot101 Monday, July 17th, 2006 | 9:01 pm PST
my buddy works at candian apintball and he says that the ripper is one of the best mark ersout there and its worth every penny but if u dont have the money u can just go with the alais just as good
   

paintbala5 Thursday, August 24th, 2006 | 10:07 am PST
crossfire makes a 98/45 tank? i thought it only went up to 91
   

ohno Thursday, August 24th, 2006 | 10:19 am PST

are you saying different markers are used in different weather?? that makes sence.. cant use a cocker in the fall.. its a spring only gun, and dont even think about using a timmy in the spring... just wont work.... :P

okay, i can get this or the 2k5 intimidator. Since the price of this ( from where I'm getting it) is only 100$ more, I can't realy decide. I don't care about looks to much but this has a higher average so more people were happy with it I guess. Is there any difference in performance? because I heard that they were all pretty much the same other than there looks.
