Typhoon Vs. Blazer

How do these two markers differ in performance? Which is more efficient? Which is quieter? Does the Typhoon need to be timed? Does it have a ball detent?

BLazers are lighter, Typhoons are much more refined, in my opinion. Neither need to be timed. I've only shot them, so I can only say this from my experience.

Refined how? Looking at the two, I don't see the advantage of the Blazer.

The Blazer is smaller, and has all internal airways so no hoses to worry about. Overall, I'd say it's a better gun but the typhoons still have that certain something that makes them special. They just don't look like many other guns.

The Blazer and Typhoon are pretty much equals in terms of firing performance.
I consider the Blazer as the results of refining a Typhoon into an aluminum body. Smaller, lighter and just a tad faster but the shooting performance is about the same for both guns.

ok sorry, maybe refined wasn't the right word, and remember I said in my opnion, so sorry if I ruffled any feathers. maybe unique would be the right one.

And their efficiency on HPA? Are they loud? If I run a backbottle setup, do I need to run an external hose to the ASA from the Stab, or can it all be done internally? Thanks!

Efficiency is quite good. I expect 800+ shots from a 68/3000 tank.

On a back-bottle setup with a vertical Stabilizer, it is generally done with a hard-line from the ASA to the Stabilizer, external, along the right side of the gun. The same way my own Blazer (BZ001) is set up.

Glen, I've a question for you.
It may have been asked already many times over, so it's redundancy might be annoying to you considering it is rather personal, so if you decline to answer it, I'll understand.

All of us PPS loyalist are aware of the connection you share with the BZ001. It is a legend.
There is no paint gun, other than Camille the 1st (death to its beholder should prevail, j/k) that has created such a stir of publicity through out the paintball community to date. Such a relic (you mind the pun?) I feel would be the ultimate prize for any PPS enthusiasts, and would consider themselves inclined enough to invest their very last dime in order to obtain such a highly prized and notable piece of paintball history. So I expect many have come forward and made such gestures, and so I wondered what, if any have offered to buy it from you.
Considering the resale value for your product's, let alone your personal BZ, it should probably set the highest price ever paid(I'd expect) marking the BZ001 as the most cherished paint guns of all time. As it should, and always be.
So?

Actually, most folks have not even seen BZ001 and there hasn't been any offers for it worth mentioning. It isn't for sale anyway.

What most have seen, and the one that I named Paladins Pride, is BZ013.

Odly enough, I don't even have a pic of 001, will have to work on it.
However, it is a standard Blazer with a back-bottle ASA and a Male Stab in the vertical ASA.
Nothing fancy. Off-the-rack gear.

I kept 001, 013 and 069 for myself. 069 still hasn't been built up.

Hey Glenn,
It would have been funny to number this one "0".

That one is Z-1. The first of 4 pieces of aluminum that made it to working status. I played it in tournament at the '94 Masters in Nashville.
Sure is fugly (looking like I carved it with a hand axe) but it functioned and shot quite well.

Z-0 didn't make it to a working model. (used as a wheel chock in my garage for many years now Neither did Z-2. (where-abouts unknown)
I still have the chassis for Z-3 and it actually worked too, at one time.
