TX Storm intimidator w/ ups
Trigger, On/off, feedneck, board (Unless yours comes with Frenzy)
Speed, consistency, reliability
I'd like to start out by saying how fantastically impressed I was at the simplicity of the intimidator. I know that they are basically an offshoot of a spyder, but didn't realize that they were basically just as simple. The simplicity of the intimidator is really one of it's great features. It only has two moving parts, the ram and the bolt. These are the only things you really need to maintain on a regular basis and it takes about 5 minutes to take them out, lube them and put them back together. Probably the next best thing is the fact that this gun needs ZERO upgrades. Not just to shoot well, but in general. I do like the CP trigger that I have more than the stock, but the stock trigger works well too. A feedneck is also nice, but the stock twist lock is fairly adequate. The stock SOB board is kind of lack luster, but since then BL has come out with the Frenzy board, which came stock on the late models of 2k2 Timmies, and there are many choices for aftermarket boards.
The intimidator really performs on the field. There is a little bit of kick, but nothing compared to something like an impulse. As with most high end electros, it'll lay down streams of paint just as fast as you can pull the trigger, and the anti-chop eyes work fantastic in eliminating choppage. The only thing I didn't particularly like about the 2k2 Timmies is the distance between the frame and reg. It's a bit long for my taste, but all in all feels very nice in your hands.
Great gun, can be had very cheap used these days. All in all I give it an 8/10
I have played with many guns and so far this is the best. the speed is uncomparable. the accuracy is key. All around Great Gun!!!! A+++++++++ Like i said i have played with many many guns and this is the best yet as far as veritility gose. i dont like the contract killers tho

Halo B Victory
Sorta bulky and a tad heavy
I bought this used with a few upgrades. I was amazed how fast it was, so much faster than my ion. I had to get used to aiming with it though becasue it is so much taller. The gun is big but feels very balanced with a macdev, halo, and a stiffi. I like this gun it is much more originaly than an ion becasue everyone has an ion. This gun performes great compared to an ion and most high ends that i have tried. The only bad thing about it is the size but besides that I love this gun zero problems in 6 months and very easy maintainence. I am very happy with this but if i were to get another gun it would be a gun with a smaller profile like an alias or eteck ego
Red tx storm timmy

Evolution 2 hopper
ST feed neck
Really freakin fast
Easy to use
Screws to the grip are to close to the board
When i was putting in a new barb for the gun i was putting it back together and when i was screwing in the screws it is so close to the board i messed this one little part and it is not working so well but it will.
But after i got it fixed it worked so good and i was shooting so many people and this gun will go through a lot for you and you will be pleased with the results.
This gun is awesome becasue if your looking for a timmy and you cant afford those real exspensive guns get this its fast.

Its a timmy
Its has a little kick
its kinda loud
I just got this gun in a trade and as soon as i aired it up and put paint through it i was amazed, it was ramping at 22 bpswith the frenzy 127.4 board with no chops at all and with no shootdown, you can get nice timmys for real cheap now because of the ions and other cheap guns and they rip, if you get this gun the first thing you should get is a fast hopper and a case of paint, you will see why they call them intimidators they intimidate people they are very fast and kinda loud which adds to the intimidation effect, a nice board is must if you want to max out your gun and it will be worth it, i have had no major problems with this gun, the only thing i have had to do is to lube it, replace bumper and detents, and the only reason i had to replace the detents and the bumper is because i was shooting so much paint through it because it is an awsome gun
Get this gun it is very very fast and very reliable and can be bought for real cheap , i chose 9/10, if there was a perfect gun it would get a 10/10 but since there is no perfect gun my ranking starts at 9/10 and since it is kinda loud and has some kick but it is hella fast and very reliable it gets a 9/10

Not too loud
Bad internal design (see review)
Hard to set if you are a noob
I picked up my storm 2 weeks ago for 400. The first thing i noticed was that for an older timmy it wasnt that heavy. After shooting it and absolutely loving it, i decided to play. The gun worked great when i was playing, but after i went off the field, it had an insane leak. with the help of my local tech, we were able to fix it and put it back together. in the process, we managed to shear the eye wire in half because of the frame pinching it too hard. After close examination, we realized that the eye wire has to follow a trench that is set in the gun. To me it seems like a bad design, but after you get the hang of it its easy to takes eyes off and put them back in. this gun is crazy fast w/ my was board and is very accurate (stock barrel). Annother thing that this gun has to offer is great efficiency. i was dry firing in simulate mode forever and the air gauge hardly moved.
Buy this gun you wont be disappointed. Its not as light or fast as the new timmys, but it will keep up with most high ends as it is. no gun is perfect so it gets a 9
W.A.S. board-so fast
Milling design-looks cool
A bit heavy
This was my first timmy. I have shot other timmies before, and it made me want to get one. Oh man, the deisgn and operation of a timmy is so simple. Taking it part and cleaning it down is a bit time consuming, but you have to take care of your stuff.
The speed and finesse of this gun is high. The was board lets you unleash streams of paint. Shoots like there is no tommorow. This timmy is a bit heavier compared to ther timmies, but thats ok. Consistency is great thatnks to the stock HPR Torpedo regulator.

very good accuracy, very good air efficiency SPEED!!! no kick, fairly lightweight, very comfortable ergonomics
None in my opinion, just that the gun is longer than most
When i first got this gun, i was awed by the milling. the gun is beautiful. When I first aired it up, it took a little tweaking of the hpr/lpr to get it shooting right (Input pressure needs to be between 50 and 100 or you'll blow out your solenoid). Once I got it set up (dwell at 7.5, eyes on force) and reduced the trigger pull, i was ripping 17bps no problem on an otherwise stock gun. I was noticing that there was a bit of kick, however, but that was completely dissolved when I got the shocktech bolt. It increased the already great air efficiency and took away the last of the kick, It just required me to turn up the hpr a little. I have put lot of paint through my TS and the only reason it has chopped paint was that the paint was bad anyway. When using GAP or XBall Bronze and up, it shoots flawlessly, i havent found other paint that it really likes, but I havent tried it all either. The gun is a bit longer than most high end guns but it makes for better ergonomics and it has improved my snap shooting 100%. Plus, you can find these guns for $800 at some stores, possibly less if used.
This gun is incredible, pick one up for $800, and it shoots as good as if not better than guns like dm4's/dm5's and the high end timmies that all cost over 1.2k GET THIS GUN ONLY IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING THAT WILL DECIMATE THE COMPETITION!

Fast, light weight, accurate, no chopped paint, air efficient , consistent air pressure, looks, quality
To change the battery you must strip the gun, out of date manual
The Electra was a good beginners gun and the Cocker an increase in speed and accuracy. The Angel 4 was even more impressive than the Cocker but in my opinion the Storm is easily the best. Fast (25bps), light, accurate, and reliable the Timmy is low maintenance and easy to understand and operate. Add air, size the paint to bore and go play. Over the chrono I get +/- 2 fps variance and that definitely helps with the accuracy. Consistent air supply along with consistent paint to bore fit is the key to accuracy. The Angel4 is a very good gun as well but I personally prefer the trigger pull and the 45 grip frame over the trigger and space frame of the Angel. For me the 45 frame allows me to get on target faster and more naturally. The Timmy appears to be much longer and taller than the Angel but if you lay them on top of each other the Angel is less than an inch shorter. Height is equal. Chopping paint hasn't been an issue.
The biggest drawback is to change the battery you must remove the grips, grip panel, and eye cover. I did see where a company called Blitz Aphix has released a version that has battery changing from the back of the grip. That would be much better. Still the battery issue isn't enough to downgrade the gun since the battery life is around 15-20,000 shots. The manual has not ben updated since the GZ Intimadator. I would expect better from Bob Long. I would have expected a manual similar to the Angel manual for a gun of this class.
Even with the 2 downsides listed above the gun performance is still a 10. Using this gun will take equipment performance out of the equation. Your results on the field will be limited only by your skill, not the gun. What more can you ask for out of a paintball gun?
10 out of 10

This gun is amazingly fast, especially with the new Frenzy Board in it, on the 2004s the milling is a little different and the weight is almost as good as the Alias. You are definitely gonna need a really fast hopper, like the reloader b or a halo. an egg with a Z-BOARD might keep up but you will have to run the eyes on delay mode and increase the time. I almost got an Angel 4 but i was talked out of them because of some of the problems they have. I was told that they hardly ever chop a paintball and the people that told me that were right, I have not chopped on ball in almost 6 cases of apint through it.
I think this or any timmy are by far the best markers on the market today. If you have the budget I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
