CCI VSC Phantom - well....it's a pump...so I don't know how to compare the two...
Model 98 - this was my first gun, always worked no matter what, good beginner gun but loud, heavy, and slow.
2005 Bob Long Intimidator (Black)
Frenzy LCD Board
Hybrid "B*tch" Grips (Red)
Check-It On/Off Unimount (Black)
Empire ReLoader B w/ Rip Drive (Red)
68ci 4500psi PMI Nitrogen Tank
Dye '05 Rhino Cover (Red)
-Halo B or Empire ReLoader - you'll need the speed
-Run Nitrogen only CO2 equals BAD!
-Obviously you'll need an ASA, go for the Check-It Unimount, works flawlessly
-Harder detents (To solve double feeding issues as a result of loader). I recommend Paintball Kingdom's hard blue detents
-New trigger, tho I use stock and works perfectly, but some may want easier walkability
-Possibly new board...Tadao...but the Frenzy works excellent
-Maybe a new barrel, Stock barrel is a Bob Long Assassin 12" and works great for a stock barrel, but I'm currently saving for a Stiffi Switch Kit (quite it down, lighten it, and maybe tighten my spread a little)
-Bolt w/ slots for detents (don't want to tear up those hard detents) currently saving for either an Orange or VP bolt
-Mayber new feedneck, many have claimed the stock sucks, but I haven't seemed to have trouble fitting and holding my ReLoader unsanded, so I don't know.
I bought this marker after many months of research. I wanted a fast reliable marker that would compete with the current guns out there. Also, it had to look sexy : )
So, my result: 2k5 Timmy
The gun is amazing, and so dang good looking. First thing I did when I received my gun was completely dissassemble it and lube the thing up. So many people complain about their guns not working and they cry bad quality and bash the marker in reviews (*cough*like some who've reviewed this gun as crap *cough*). Why don't they stop complaining and take care of their marker. Probably 90 percent of problems with this gun and all others is poor decisions or mistakes on the operater. conclusion: lube your friggin gun...haha.....and replace worn parts.
This marker works flawlessly when I play, as long as I mantain it at home, it WILL NOT breakdown....that's all there is to it...it just works. Bob has truly constructed a wonderful and also affordable gun that competes with any.
I thought about getting one of the upper tier timmies, like an alias, or the ripper 2...but after researching and finding that the differences are miniscule or merely cosmetic, I chose the 2k5, and I am happy with my decision. Only a few ounces heavier than the hundreds of dollars more expensive upper model timmies, but barely noticeable. It's still soooo light. And it performs dang near the exact same as all those other timmy models, so for $700 it's a steal!
This gun works. PERIOD. It's light, fast, and so sexy. Plus its a Bob Long Timmy, so you're in good company...
I love it!
Buy this gun. It performs the same as all the upper priced timmies and is so sexy and fast. It's reliable (when correctly mantained and not operated by an idiot 10 year old) and competes with any marker on the current market.
10 out of 10

I'm trying to decide between this, a used shocker, possibly an angel, or a proto. I've heard that timmys are either unreliable or are hard to take care of or something. What do you think about that?
Matt, I suggest you try shooting the other markers, they all rock but theyre all fairly different in various ways. I like Timmys cause I find them alot more versatile for any position. All you suggested are great markers but theyre all differant beasts on the field. Its all preference on the player and your style and feel. Timmys are reliable with regular maintances (lube) and not alot of tinkering involved. I used a 2k2 and it still shoots like a champ! Only thing that broke through the years is the Ram bumper which is a 2 dollar rubber peice.
the difference I think is the milling o the body. I've heard all the internals on timmys are basically the same and that you are paying for the milling on the more expensive ones.
And the Alias comes stock with a Frenzy LCD board in it.
