I believe an air assist uses a microline to channel spent gas for use in 'pushing' balls down into the feed... This would help in feeding balls faster...

To tell you the truth, I have a friend who has an Adrenaline Angel that use the air assist... he's a veteran of the sport (10+ years) and has used many markers - his opinion of it is that the benefits are pretty much minimal but subject to individual opinion...

But would you need an air assist on a Timmy if you already have the ACE? I figure the air assist to be a way of minimizing chopping balls....

I don't think air assist is only for minimizing chops but also increasing rate of fire as it would do in a timmy(maybe(sp) too little to notice or maybe(sp) a great deal). I think intellifeed is an option with the board coming out from defiance.

I think you both might be a bit off target.In fact, air assist is used to allow you to get that extra 1 or 2 shots in when shooting sideways, or horizontal.The use seems minimal until you get to where you have to shoot sideways, and youve got a fresh ball feeding, as opposed to an emtpy feed neck.Its not completely necessary, but it doesnt suck to have once its there.IMHO of course for that last part.
