Review: Strengths:
-
-Out of the box, with no trigger job, it shot great. I got up to 13 bps.
-Obviously if you are spending $1,200 + and you buying a timmy, thats unacceptable.
-Dont bother fiddling with the stock trigger, (will explain why in Weaknesses) and just buy a bearing trigger for a smoother pull. I bought a CP and it gave me an extra 4 bps just in simulate mode.
-The gun looks awesome. I think it's one of the sweetest timmy's Ive seen.
-The lcd menu is easy to use and if you go on PBNation you can find some suggestions for different settings for the dwell, bip, debounce, etc.
-Features also a Competion mode that you need to disassemble the trigger frame for to activate. Basically dont worry about this if you are a kid with rich parents and you buy (i.e. have your parents buy for you) high-end guns and only play rec-ball, no offense.
-Having eyes is great. Almost impossible to chop. You can set a delay for the eyes to.

Weaknesses:
-No manual with the gun. Oh wait except the manual for a 2002 timmy. No help there though. Go to PBNation to get tips on anything you need. Its there just search for it.
-First weakness, price obviously, but who cares about money ;).
-The reg set up is funky for me. The guage is on the left side of the gun rather than the right. Im planning on swapping the huge ashcroft guage with a smaller one for comfort.
-The regulator that comes with the gun as the gas input on the side of the reg. Personally I like mine on the bottom cause the side of the reg is where my left hand goes. Again CP comes to the rescue in this case with a reg that has the input on the bottom. A lot more comfy in my opinion.
-On my Matrix I used my E Reloader B on full speed and the ball detents were like Gandolf on that stone bridge in the Fellowship of the Ring, "Ball you shall not PASS!" However, the ball detents on this timmy are like "Umm ball please dont go by, please?" Ya the E Reloader B on full speed will make the gun double feed a lot. Turn down the setting to the lowest speed, which still is pretty fast and you should be set. If that works try setting it to the next speed (second fastest). Perhaps consider a Halo B if you are still in the market for a loader.
-The stock trigger had a lot of side to side play on my timmy. However get a bearing trigger for it and it will shoot like a dream. I just walk the side of my trigger and its sweet. The CP bearing stick triggers are nice and cheap. From their website, I think like $35.
-The barrel isnt a weakness its just basic. It comes with a one piece barrel. Although if you got one you like and its cocker threaded, swap it on to this gun and give it a go.

Updated Reviews:
Go to pbkingdom.com to get stronger ball detents or criticalpaintball.com to get theres which consist of 3 different hardnesses. Also, with this upgrade, definitely look into a slotted bolt. Combined with the ball detents i just mentioned, you will not double feed, and you can put your loader at full speed. The empire reloader at speed 2 lets my gun shoot at 17 bps with the eyes on. So upgrading your ball detents and bolt are a must!

After putting a CP reg and barrel on, the gun is flawless. Upgrading the board to 127 for less than $50 is worth it if you are playing PSP rule tournaments. Just send your board to blast and they do the rest. When they got my board that i sent them, they were able to upgrade the software and ship it out the same day! Very much worth it. Upgrading the board gave me another bps in semi. Upgrading the board will give you full auto, ramping, 3 round burst, and obviously true semi. Also you have the PSP feature for capping the marker at 15bps.
This is a great timmy to start with if your new to them. It is a great buy and
Conclusion: All in all, this gun is a great buy. Some of the stuff needs to upgraded and such. Mine came with a Frenzy 116 board. If you call up BLAST, and send them your board and $40 dollars, they will upgrade it to 127 which includes stuff like ramping (which i believe is after 10bps, it increases the rof by like 60%), full auto i think, 3 round burst i think, and you have the capping feature, PSP for one requires guns to be capped at 15 bps, but allows some of the above feature.
I would give this gun something between a 9 and a 9.5 just because of some of the hassel stuff I went through (ball detents, manual, trigger)
