Its actually 1/2 inch shorter than an angel, and thinner top to bottom. Ive shot angels and timmys, I see zero difference in performance. You can shoot as fast as the balls can feed with both, the big bonus for the timmy is the anti-chop eye. Angels can outshoot the rev and make soup, the timmy will hang the bolt and let the ball drop and then shoot. I dont even carry a squeegy anymore, one less thing to worry about. If you can, shoot both and get a feel, it doesnt matter what we say if youre not comfortable shooting it.
