Period of
Product Use:
3 months22 of 27 people found this review helpful.

1 year
Products Used:
Other Bob Long Intimidators, Angels, Matrices, Vikings, Shockers, and more. Out of every high end gun I've had the chance to play with, and I've played with a lot, I prefer this gun by far.
Marker Setup: Bob Long Alias Intimidator
Cross fire, Inc. 68ci/4500psi LP tank
Empire 7 piece barrel kit
Odyssey Paintball HALO B
ECX Slasher Techna Trigger
CP Rail
Barrel kit. I went with the Empire 7 piece.
Fast hopper, such as the HALO B. It's extremely easy to shoot this gun fast. Trust me, you'll need one.
Paint. You're going to need a lot of it.. ;)
Strengths: *NO* on-gun upgrades needed, including adjustable ram caps. Read main Review Body for more.
Weaknesses: A lot of idiots own the Alias, and hurt its rep.
Review: Assuming you readers have had the chance to shoot Intimidators, and you already know their strenths, wait until you shoot this.

The new electronics (more efficient solenoid and new Frenzy LCD board (faster than WAS) with a built-in LCD, similar to Angels) will simply amaze you. The operation of the board is 10x simpler than the popular WAS boards of older Intimidators, and many Alias owners have found it to be much faster while still being field legal. The eye programming and logic is far more advanced than any other board out there.

The grip frame has been moved forward, and the feedneck has been moved backward. This makes the gun incredibly comfortable and balanced.

The body has been heavily milled, and not only looks nice (huge understatement), but also weighs under 2 pounds!

The LPR housing has been redesigned for maximum airflow, eliminating the problem older Intimidators had with the need for a volumizer.

The need to replace ram bumpers and buy adjustable ram caps have also been eliminated with the new ram and ram cap design.

The bolt has detent slots to lengthen the lives of your detents, and there are several o-rings to prevent blow back.

With a 68ci/4500psi LP Crossfire tank, I get +/- 1 over the chrono, and over 1900 usable shots!

*** NOTE *** This is not the 2k4 Intimidator. The 2k4 Intimidator is a 2k2 Intimidator that comes stock with a clamping feedneck, Species trigger, and the Frenzy board, similar to the board Alias.
Conclusion: You simply must try this gun to understand why I love it so much.

good review - I believe if anyone has ever used this gun they would not give it below a 10 becasue it is that good.

No. ASAs are a personal preference thing. Some like Uni-mounts, some like drop forwards, etc.

hello I just got an alias and whenever there is a ball in the chamber the little * shows up which means malfunction. how do I fix this???

That means your eyes are bypassing due to blockage or something else. Contact BLAST and they should help you.

Hey locostah if you scroll down the reviews and look at peoples marker set ups you can see that people are using HP tanks.

Why isn't anyone complaining about the reg? The stock regs on Timmy's are horrible and mine collapsed within the first month that I got my Alias; but now I got a 2 Liter reg on mine and it works great.

you play for 1 year and you get this gun... man... my life must suck

Peeps always buy a hp tank unless its adjustable.
LP tanks will work fine with this marker, however if you ever need to use your LP tank on another marker you might run into not enough PSI problems( even if the marker it "low pressure".

BTW alias timmys need to be broken it, and the reg should be disassembled and re lubed.

with a name like 1 sexy sir that sounds more like your hitting on me than insulting me

the Alias Intimidator is recommended to be ran at 500psi, which is closest to 450psi (a low pressure tank output) 800psi (high pressure tanks) but both will work. But if you go LP then definatley get a crossifre to prevent shootdown ; )
