personal preference

shocker are not as efficient, but single tube gives you a smaller profile.

timmy are much more efficient, but is taller compare to the shocker

both are quality markers, but my preference is for the timmy. go shoot both on the field and see which you prefer.

Just another quick note. Since you are playing the XPSL. Blast (Bob Long's company) has been out at the last couple events providing tech assistant along with some people for Angel. As for Smart Parts they just do PSP events. Just some extra advise when making that purchase.

Ya the tech support is always nice. it is either tech support or being able to tech your own gun (and having the spare parts to fix almost anything).

Smart parts guns arent hard at all to maintain.
If you maintain it regularly The chances of it breaking/A serious flaw coming out of nowhere is very slim.

id get a timmy but only if you are willing to take really good care of it and clean and do maintinence, intimidators are a lot of work

Efficiency doesn't mean the gun is more efficient maintanence wise, they're talking about air efficiency, or more shots per tank.
