More than 5 years
Products Used:
Typhoon: similar action, but blazer is lighter & faster.
Various Cockers including an E Blade: Blazer is lighter & much more compact, cycles faster than cockers except for my custom E Blade.
Marker Setup: Blazer with vertical feed, 45 grip w/double trigger, palmer stabilizer, fluted 12" nickel plated brass palmer barrel, drop frwd w/on-off, VL Revolution.
Typhoon: Double trigger & pro job, Palmer stabilizer, muzzle break, VL Revolution.
Custom E Blade w/Palmer pneumatics (micro rock & stabilizer), X-10 Drop frwd w/on-off, , VL Evo II.
Go with the 45 grip, double trigger, a Palmer stabilizer, and the 12"or 14" fluted barrel. A motorized loader is a must to keep up with the ROF.
Strengths: Consistent. Compact. Not prone to short stroke. Accurate. Low maintenance.
Weaknesses: No ball detection system (but rarely would need it).
Review: I've been using Palmer products for quite awhile and own one of the first 100 typhoons made ( the marker , originally a sheridan single feed paintball rifle, has been through every modification available from PPS). I was very pleased with the performance and low maintenance requirements of the marker for many years. For a time, I stepped away from the game and only recently came back to it a couple of years ago. When I returned, I was blown away by the electro markers. Having been seduced by the speed and light weight of the new electro's, I ran the table from spyders to bushmasters & timmys, to an ultra trick custom E Blade. It was nice to shoot fast, but I was'nt thrilled about the high maintenance and often found myself relying on my back up marker, that wonderful old typhoon. I live about an hour away from PPS so I decided to go in and see if there were any updates available for it. I had the pro trigger job done and the double trigger added which made a significant difference in the feel and speed of the marker - but while there, they had me shoot a Blazer. No sales pitch needed---SOLD! I've had the marker out every weekend since and this thing is AWESOME! I've chopped a couple of balls thru about 7cases of paint, but it took less than 10 seconds to clean due to the design of the bolt, pin, and ram - snap out, pull a swab thru, snap in - that's it, there is no block to line up or pin to misplace. Accuracy is unmatched and enhanced by the nearly nonexistent motion during cycling, I've been able to shoot through very small gaps ( if you can shoot out from it, a Blazer can shoot back into it). The Blazer is also quite compact and, unlike other mechanical pneumatics, all lines are internal - built into the body, no need for LP hose. Maintenance has consisted of cleaning with warm water and a mild soap, a few drops of oil in the ASA & bolt o-rings, and minor adjustments to the primary & low pressure regs. The regs have now taken seat and no longer need adjustment, it's so consistent I don't even have to adjust the velocity anymore. The marker has never gone down, is unbelievably accurate & consistent, very compact, and has a decent ROF. I'm so pleased that I've begun to sell off my other markers on eBay.
Conclusion: If you are a cocker fanatic and don't care for the current trend toward electric controlled mechanical operation, you need to check out this marker. It is lighter, more compact and attractive, shoots more consistent , smoother, faster, and is less prone to short stroking than even the most modified cocker (E blade conversion excluded). And all that for less than $600.00 An electro option with some kind of breach sensor would make this unarguably the best marker money could buy.
10 out of 10
