Products Used:
I've shot Lasoya's, 2k2's, Z's, Empire's, Shockers (04), B2K's and an IR4. Obviously all the timmy's were very similar (with the exception of the Empire - much lighter!) with only minor differences, the Shocker was nice but the owner of it has had too many problems with it, the B2K is a SWEET gun for the price tag, and the IR4 I wasn't very impressed with besides the really fancy manual it comes with.

Upgrades:
Usual pre-Alias/Empire parts are required. Adjustable ram cap is pretty much all you need to start, everything else is just icing on the cake. A new barrel would be advised, as well as a technatrigger (because they're the best, of course). The volumizer & KAPP ram helped out with recoil.
Strengths: Ease of use, consistency, accuracy, SPEED!, looks, and SPEED.
Weaknesses: No weaknesses that can't be resolved. More about this in the full review.
Review: Once you get this gun dialed in - like any Timmy - it will rip like no other. I got mine after playing with several friends who also owned timmy's - so I knew if I ever needed a spare part of help fixing it I would have plenty of support. After I shot a few of their Lasoya's and Z's, I was hooked. With the right upgrades, you can drop the kick down to almost nil and outshoot your halo.

My Storm originally came with a SOB board (I think I got ripped on that), but I soon replaced it with a WAS board. While I had the SOB board I experienced many chops at higher rates of fire, but after I switched to WAS the chops mostly went away. The only other chops came when the halo double fed, which was solved with extra hard ball detents from paintball kingdom. After the WAS board and detents, I have not chopped one single ball. I don't even carry a squeegee with me on the field anymore, because I never need one.

All in all, this gun hasn't let me down and performs just like any other timmy would - flawless. Maintenence is a breeze once you understand the internals, and if you're the type that likes to "tinker" there are a ton of upgrades that this gun will take. You don't need them, mind you, but that didn't stop me. And not very many of the upgrades - and the initial purchase of the gun - are very cheap... but you get what you pay for!
Conclusion: If you've got the budget and want a gun that will stay with you for a long time, this (or any other timmy) is the one. It's fast, it's sexy, it doesn't chop and it will cost you an arm and a leg in paint.
