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!

DM4's and older Trixes(hate them all besides the DM4)

A new barrel if you are an accuracy obsessed guy but, otherwise nothing.
Pretty dang accurate w/ paint barrel match
Ok on accuracy
I like LCD screens in the grips
When I shot a texas storm intimidator is was only my second time to ever shoot a timmy. I had shot a Dragon before and i liked it alot, anyway. A couple of Saturdays ago i shot my friend Jaque's TS Intimidator. It was set on debounce two and he was standing there ripping it already. I asked to shoot it and he agreed. I took the gun and sorda looked it over and then began to shoot it....only two words: FA and ST. I had to of hit 17 bps and it was ripping like crazy! While holding it i noticed it was a bit heavier than an Alias but not to much. It is hardly noticeable but if you whine about it you are just a whimp. I notice the air effiency was rather nice, right up there with Angels and cockers. On DB(debounce) 2 i could hear the spaces between shots and then i would hit a spot and it would sound like a gun running out of CO2. It was awesome!
This is a very nice intimidator and i suggest it if you are not up to spending over a grand on a gun but you want good quality. If you have about a grand i would go for the Alias, but if not go for either the storm or a lasoya(basically the same gun). All in all this is a very nice marker. If you have the money, buy it know!!! I give an 8 because of the barrel and the LCD. ;)
You name it and I've shot it. Cockers, mags, Trix, Angel. Old school Vm-68, Ranger pump, NelSpot 007, RPGIII, blah, blah, blah
Currently shooting a Texas Storm Timmy upgraded ram and a reverse polarity TECHNA TRIGGER (the best trigger on the planet!) Egg with zboard, 68/4500 crossfire, Evil pipe.
You can get an adjustabler ram cap if you're using a Halo. New ram with the deepset bumper is nice. It shoots sweet out of the box.
Fast, accurate and reliable. What more do you need.
A touch heavy compared to the new Timmys, Shocker, Nerve, Freestyle. Trigger is just garbage.
Well let me just say that I couldn't be any happier with this marker. I have had NO problems with it in the 6 months that I have had it. None. It shoots straight and is mad fast. It's pretty air efficient, the eyes work great, the anno job is sweet, nice milling. Comes with a clamping feedneck and a nice LPR. This thing was shooting +/- 3 over the chrono out of the box. In the 16 years I've been playing I have never seen that out of the box. NEVER. NEVER. I am talking no break in. Just keep the bolt lubed and follow the manual reagrding maintenance and yours should work as great as mine. I wish the hoses were a little longer because they can be a little frustrating to put back together but that's just a minor thing. If I have something bad to say about the marker is that the trigger is garbage. That thing had to come out of there. It wasn't smooth and was tough to shoot. Get it out of there and put in a CP ballbearing trigger or go the whole way and get the TECHNA CARBON FIBER TRIGGER. That's the finest trigger I have ever used.
My final recommendation is that I love this marker. Beside the trigger I don't really have anything bad to say about it. Listen, no marker is perfect so all of my reviews start out with a 9 and go down from there. This marker is a solid 8 which is awesome.

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?

A good Barrel kit might make it a little more accurate than it is now. I also recommend a better regulator for it.
Accuracy and shiz hot fast!!
The regulator blew on mine.
only works on select times
right when i got this gun out of the box, it rocked. We used it the following day, and the bottom reg blew and i had it sent to nebraska to get it fixed. We then used and the gun has always had minor problems until the reg blew again and we got it fixed again.
This gun has been nothing but a royal pain in the butt to fix and maintain. When the gun wanted to be good, it was. But when i wanted it to, it sucked.

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.

The upgrades that I have on mine make this gun one of the best I've shot. Out of the box this gun performes well, but does need a few thigs to work perfectly.
#1 barrel kit
#2 ram cap adjuster
#3 fast loader
#4 good air
This gun is milled beautifully. It is very light and consistent. great colors
Needs barrel kit, could have a probles with different size paints
I would have to say that I am very pleased and impresed with this gun. When I first purchased it from Predator Paintball I was supposed to receive a red to black fade. Well that never showed up, but in place of it they offered me a grey to black storm. What luck, I ended up with a gun that I think is much better lookig than most
Now to Performance: the first time I put paint thru this gun I was amazed at the bps. this frickin' thing laid ropes and ropes and, you know what I mean. The problem I found with the frenzy board that came in it was that no matter how I tried to change the setting it would "OVER" debounce. I tried trigger adjustment, dwell settings, new loaders, new barrels, expansion chambers and awhole lot of little stuff. I foud that my problem was with the ram cap. This gun definately need an adjustable ram cap. Other wise the ball rests out of sight of the vision eye and make the gun freeze up. You could always change the eye mode to bypass but that defeats the whole purpose of having the eye..
Once this $35 problem was solved I must admit, this frickin gun kick$$ big A$$
Great Gun - Could use a barrel kit - Very fast and accurate - Durable - Light - Gorgeous

Black TX Storm Timmy, Halo B, 88/5000 PMI Pure Energy Tank, CP Barrel Kit
Adj. Ram Cap, Drop or rail, Upgraded Barrel
Fast, light, well designed.
A top of the line, fully upgradeable markers, the Storm Kicks butt. It's the best 2nd Gen. intimidator for the price as it comes with the WAS board and only needs minimal upgrades. It's a paint throwing machine and out of the 3 Timmy's I've owned, it's by and far the best.
You've got to get one. It's the best milled, best looking marker, a lightning fast machine!
I have used almost every type of marker on the market.
Texas Storm with hammerhead fin and barrel kit
an adjustable ram block
possibly a barrel sysytem
comfortable to hold
accurate right out of the box
Almost forget 'walk-on' play
Finding a fast enough hopper
Buying enough paint
I like the marker it is blazing fast and unbelievable accurate even with stock barrel. Is easy to care for. Feels like it was made for my hands. I would recommend it to anyone, it has not let me down yet. As my setup is I have to keep an eye on my speed it is very easy to out shoot my revy but I have tested egg's and halos and I have still had the marker hesitate because of the eyes when I shoot fast bursts.
