Recommended
Upgrades:
A VERY fast hopper, Reloader BII!
Strengths: Smaller & lighter than any Timmy I have touched.
Weaknesses: The body where the bolt sticks out is very sharp.
Review: Tested it at the Bob Long test area with Lazer Balls (obviously, no one chopped). Lots of modes on the stock board. Most were trying it with some kind of ramping. I had the guy running the tent put it on straight semi-auto. Well, I have never EVER, picked up a marker and shot a straight rope of paint that fast. No acclimation necessary, and I am not a kid. Feel is excellent, the stock trigger has a reverse wave where the bottom sticks out further than the top. Some might not like it, however, I am now looking for a trigger like it for my Proto. Most of the rope I laid out was ball-on-ball. My kid has fast fingers and his mouth dropped open. He still thinks that it is my perfect marker. Oh, well, $1300 can't be dropped at the drop of a hat, you know.

My only real complaint is the razor sharp milling at the back of the body that houses the bolt. I actually punctured my thumb by tapping the marker on the back of my hand, trying to remove the hammer. However, compared to the 2k5 timmy, it is much smaller/lighter. Less moving mass means less kick!
Conclusion: Once I have a spare $1300 saved, I will be buying a gloss black w/ blue highlights, 06 Infamous Intmidator.

which do you like better your proto or the Infamous?

I, truly, only tested the Timmy, but have played a few games with the PM6. I have NEVER felt so natural shooting a fast string as I have with the new Timmy.
The Proto is quieter and has less kick than the Timmy. The last time I played, I traded my gun for the Proto during a game. I though I was shooting way below chrono (285 fps) because of the sound and lack of kick. I was wrong, went to chrono right after game and was at 275, +/- 4 fps. The sound of a PM6 shooting doesn't even make a 'POP!', more like 'fsup' like a tuned DM5.

I would LOVE to get one, but i just blew my Timmy savings on an 05 Ego (really cheap)! So I will wait until the 06 Timmies are old news, then I will get one.
