Products Used:
DM5 - Shot just fine I just like the feel of my timmy better. Not as efficient as my
DMC - I absolutely loved this marker. Id like to pick up another one someday. When I
had the lucky top hat mod orings in it, I saw a rise in efficiency but nothing like
what I had with the timmy when I received it.
PM5 - I love these markers almost as much as my timmy. They are almost as easy to
maintain as well. Not as efficient as the Intimidator
PM6 - Another Quality Marker I just like the milling on the PM5 more than the 6. Again
easy to maintain like the timmy. Not as Efficient as the intimidator
Shocker - They all have too little trigger guard space. Never was really impressed with
there performance either. I've heard good things about the new ones though
Impulse - Shoe Box but I still love the Imps.

System X NME - Very nice all around marker. Its a timmy clone but its MUCH heavier than the my 2k5 intimidator

Electronic Spyder - Not much to say but lack of vision system of some sort hinders performance greatly.
Marker Setup: 2k5 Blue Intimidator
- Fire Ball Mountain Scythe Trigger. Absolutely amazing trigger. The best without bearings
Diamond Clear Empire Reloader B
68 4500 Nitrogen/Compressed air.
LPR at ~75psi, HPR at whatever I need to achieve a steady ~290fps
Dip Settings - Down, Up, Down, Down, Down, Up.
I never chop.
The Number 1 upgrade for any intimidator.... Paintballs. Shoot someone.

For the nit-picky -
Lucky barrel kit absolutely amazing( shoots ball on ball with ANY paint)
Adjustable Ram Cap - CP adjustable ram cap is suggested.
Trigger - recommend either the CP Sling or the Fireball mountain for those on a budget.
Flash to latest Frenzy if you want the new modes (PSP, NXL Capped and Uncapped)
Rubber Band ( will explain later)
Strengths: 1. Efficient
2. Simple to maintain.
3. It never chops.
4. Quick.
Weaknesses: 1. Rubber Band (explained later)
2. LCD would have been appreciated. oh well.
Review: First off, I would like to state that I do play every weekend or someone plays with this every weekend if Im reffing, it has never let me down even with a leaking cupseal. While annoying, it didn't let me down. I shoot a case a day at least when I play open play, three during practices. 4 or more per tournament day. It gets a good cleaning after every day of play, including regs and inspection of Poppit orings and cup seal.

The intimidator has only one shortcoming. The Ram Cap. Get an Adjustable ram cap and you'll be set for a marker that will never let you down. Take care of it and it will take care of you. Its a fantastic marker that I look forward to shooting this weekend if im not reffing.
Conclusion: Adjustable ram cap isn't really a must at first but eventually it will be required or just replace the bumpers every 10-15 cases. I give it a 9 because of the non LCD board, and the need of the adjustable ram cap. Other than that it performs flawlessly.
9 out of 10
