Products Used:
Air America Vigilante - not even close
Bob Long Torpedo - great reg, but I don't like having the input anyplace but the bottom of the reg.
Marker Setup: Classic Intimidator w/clamshell, WAS Equalizer, Sidewinder Reg, Delrin bolt, barrels, hoppers, yada yada yada
Strengths: This reg has fantastic consistency!
Weaknesses: Looks...but who cares!
Review: Most Timmy owners love the Torpedo, but the Sidewinder is my favorite. I believe the Sidewinder is the best reg I've used. It's extremely consistent and lets me mount the input hose in a way that keeps it from interfering with my grip. The input is at the bottom, and it swivels to put your hose exactly where you want it. I don't need a gauge port because my Timmy has two right above where this reg mounts.

I wasn't sure about the plain-Jane looks, but it seems to match my LPR and Volumizer pretty well, and makes a good grip.

It has no problem keeping up at high ROF, and there's no shootdown. For $83, it's not a bad deal, and has a real no-nonsense look. You can buy them in 3 different lengths to match your marker or to compensate for different size hands.
Conclusion: Get one! I'm sure you'll like it. Even though I haven't had any problems with it, there's a large amount of information at the AKALMP website.
