Recommended
Upgrades:
barrel kit, halo b,, adjustable ram cap, you dont really need the was board other than to up the resale value.
Strengths: light, god looking, comfortable, lighting fast
Weaknesses: still expensive in the grand scheme of things but more than worth the money.
Review: i love this gun. it is the perfect combo on speed and price in a top of the line tourny gun. it has everything set up right out of the box all you need to do is add air and paint and your set. it come with the anit chop eyes stock and they are much better than the ones on the angels. to be very honest i cant see that much difference in firing between the storm with the WAS board and the Z with the SOB. they shoot just about as fast when in my hands. it is a great gun for advancing tourny player but i would not recommend this to someone that is just a rec player because it does require vigilant maintence to keep running. quit reading and go buy one.
Conclusion: just buy one already, you cant beat it for the price.

Weaknesses: SOB board
Review: This thing just plain works. As far as high end markers, timmies do not break down, which is key in a tournament as being on the field without a working gun is about as frustrating as not being on the field. The accuracy of this marker is great, especially if coupled with a barrel system which allows proper ball to barrel matching. The trajectory of the paint is second only to trixies and cockers. The marker is quite fast out of the box, but a was equalizer helps to speed it up. I highly recommend the equalizer, as it has a firing mode called forced, which completely eliminates ball chopping. With the sob, I still broke paint on occasion because the eye mode on the sob board only waits a quarter second after not seeing paint before it fires. If it happens to take more than a quarter second for the paint to load, you will chop. With the forced mode on the equalizer, the marker simply does not fire until a ball is loaded in the breach. The eye in a timmy is the best in my opinion because it relies on beam braking, rather than reflection to detect the ball, allowing all colors of paint shell to be used effectively. I would suggest getting a was eye for the timmy though, as it really does have the ability to see through a small amount of paint, meaning it will still work even if not cleaned thouroghly.
The clamshell frame is quite comfortable, as is the stock trigger. The timmy is very energy efficient in terms of battery drainage, I have found that on a typical battery I can shoot at least 20 cases of paint. I have a volumizer on my z, and as such I average 8+ tubes plus a hopper off my 68/45 tank. trigger adjustment is easy to do relying on three external set-screws. I reccomend using a little BLUE loctite on these set-screws so they do not shift position over time (note do NOT use RED locktite, as you will not be able to adjust the trigger after). I chose to install a shocktech ram kit in my Z, although next level also makes a nice ram and adjustable cleat. The importance of the adjustable cleat is debateable, but it does allow you to reduce the travel of the bolt and ram to increase ROF. I chose the shocktech ram because it uses a different ram bumper from the origional ram. The stock ram bumper will wear out after a good number of shots, and if this happens you might end up with a gun which isn't working, and requires supergluing a bumper onto the ram. The shocktech ram bumper doesn't wear out, period. It does however increase the kick on the marker a slight bit, but not too much. I chose to install the chekit bolt mostly because it has grooves on either side which reduce wear on the timmy ball detents, which tend to wear out quickly. No matter what bolt you use, I highly recommend always keeping extra detents.
Conclusion: Z timmys rock! with a few minor uprades this gun performs flawlessly every time you step onto the field. Couple that with accuracy, speed, and efficiency and what have you got? A super killer! I would rate the Z-timmy a ten with all the upgrades mentioned, but since it comes standard with the SOB it only gets a 9. Kudos to those of you who actually took the time to read this massive review.

umm i guess a 02 cocker but that really doesnt compare to this!!!
Marker Setup: a blue to black fade timmy with a 12 volt rev a cp barrel and a sweet drop.
Recommended
Upgrades:
an evolution loader and if you get the was board upgrade, definately an evolution. maybe a new barrel but i guess u dont really need one.
Strengths: fast
accurate
light
and way cool
Weaknesses: umm nothing really
Review: this gun is really cool.its just as accurate as my cocker but a whole lot faster. i need to get an evo just to keep up. and once i get the was board its gonna be insane.i took it to my field and everyone liked it and thought it was really cool.the trigger pull on it is so light, u can barely tap it and it will go thats how light it is.its a great gun all around and i havent had a problem with yet.the owner of the store near me plays for bob long anyway so if its something really bad with i can get it fixed anyway.but anyway this gun is so reliable i think i might not need to.but anyway... this gun is way cool so for all you looking to buy a really good gun get this. exspecially if your stuck between an angel or a timmy. go with a timmy i had the same problem but now iam glad i got the timmy.later
Conclusion: get this gun it is really great. super fast and accurate.

E-blade cockers, angels, matrixs, bushys and timmys
Marker Setup: Dye autococker with eblade and a Texas Strom Timmy
Recommended
Upgrades:
Barrel and WAS board to make it the machine it is
Strengths: Accuracy also very light for a timmy, and speed once you get WAS
Weaknesses: SOB board and I don't like the normal timmy frames like the GZ more
Review: This Gun is an excelent deal for the money because you don't have to put that much in to it to make it a accurate paint throwwing machine. I personally think it as accurate as any cocker, and think it to be much better deal because though cockers cost less than most timmy's to make them fast you need to throw on an eblade and thats another 400 bucks plus barrels drops whatever else you want to put on and by the time you get it up to the timmy standard you've spent a good 2,000 dollars or more and with one of these you get it for 900 the WAS board is like another 100 plus the barrel and boom you are done.
Conclusion: This is an excelent deal and I would've bought it except I liked the WAS board coming with the strom and the stroms milling looks a bit better to. So I am giving this a 9 because its a killer deal but you still have to put some things on it so its not perfect.

Upgrades:
A new barrel definately, Boomy, or a Freak Kit.
Thor Pure Energy Reg
at least a 68 or 88 4500 tank
Strengths: Very fast ROF, Vision Eye = no chopping, comfortable trigger frame
Weaknesses: Not everyone likes the color scheme or finish
Review: The Z Timmy is an incredible gun! If you have ever shotten the GZ Intimidator, this gun is VERY similar. Delrin bolt is great, and the stock reg works fine. very fast, up to 25 bps
(although I can't get that many shots). Feed port works well with any hopper, 12vt, egg, Halo, etc.... The vision eye works great although I prefer the fiber optic one in the new Matrix. the dust finish looks great on the body. Although this is no Chris Lesoya Timmy, it compares fairly well, and is a great gun for newbies looking into tourney play or pros looking for a high end electro. I especially like the trigger frame. Practical and comfortable. The Z Intimidator is just as good if not better than the Bob Long 02 Timmy, and It is a little cheaper. Great at only 8 to 9 hundred bucks.
Conclusion: I would deffinately get a new barrel for the gun. Maby a 2 piece Boomy or a freak kit. Other than that, the gun shoots great stock. No worrys about the internals unless you feel the need to get a new valve or if you want to color customize. If you can find this gun for a good price, BUY IT! I have seen some good deals on these off of Ebay despite the fact that they are fairly new.

Review: I think this is the same gun as the GZ TImmy just with new colors and a new name. I think GZ dropped intimidators. But should be just as good as GZ so buy one if is shoots great insane ROF without breaking balls light easy to play with I need more words so da da da da buy it its good I like cockers though because Im not the biggest fan of electro guns
Conclusion: good gun buy one if you can looks cool works good insane ROF
