dissappointed?

was anyone else dissapointed about the way the gun worked? I checked it out at SD, but it didnt really live up to the hype. the gun is more of an in-line timmy, sort of a re-organization of the same internals. Also the fact that Bob is continuing the production of the intimidator shows that this "new technology" isnt really as revolutionary as he was telling everyone.
just a thought, wanted to know if anyone else shared my feelings.

Id rather have a timmy in one tube than two, and its like like it's simple to come up with a design it takes a lot of work.

I posted after the LA event that that's all the gun was, an inline timmy. what did you expect. it was said not to be a spool valve.

Yeah, I think SP should've stopped with the Shocker production when they released the ION.......

Well, not to be too much of a smartass, but just because a company releases something new, doesn't mean they should discontinue everything else they're doing. Timmy's will always be a great seller and I think some people will just keep buying them.

I'm fairly happy with my Onyx (although I haven't shot paint through it yet) so far and if they came out with some new milling for a Timmy, I might get one as well.

im not disappointed at all, the gun looks amazing, like a mix of a shocker and a DM and the inline timmy design is probably the best idea bob has come up with yet

lodi, california. 45 min from BLAST. I spoke to Zach Long at Delta Paintball and he told me he plays out there. I think the site is enemypaintball.com

Jack Bauer once went into a bar, and asked for a 'Jack Bauer'. He received three shots of Jack Daniel's, a shot of kerosene and four shots of tequila mixed. When seeing this, another man approached the bar and asked for a Jack Bauer. He got a 9mm round to the face.

sometimes you pbnation people really piss me off. im not talking about poeple who disagree with me, i wouldnt have posted if i didnt want to hear your opinion. it gets ugly as soon as you start bashing me for my opinion. Sinister-scrub, be ashamed for representing the sport and its players in such a poor way. And I DO own one, so dont assume my opinions are based on nothing.

anyway, im glad to hear that you guys are pleased with bob and your purchases. I always like to see smaller companies succeed by coming up with something clever and progressive. I do think this is a forward step for the timmy, since there have been so few changes since the classic besides milling.

I just wanted to see something a little more for how bob and zach talked about it in their interviews. they should be proud, but it is kinda funny that this gun was supposed to change the way we look at markers.

Just a note, the continued production of the timmy has absolutely nothing to do with the onyx. I believe the Timmy is wrapped up in NPS production still. HOPEFULLY the onyx is free and clear of NPS which from the looks of things I believe it is.

NPS has NOTHING to do with the production of the intimidator. It's always been Bob that produced (manufactured) the timmy. Heck he assembles them in a facility on his own property about 200 yards from his house. Now that's a great commute!

That is interesting. If NPS now has nothing to do with the intimidator, why would bob long start www.boblongdirect.com? He had www.boblong.com before the NPS hook up? I know bob is a very smart man but Gino had to sink his teeth into him somehow on the timmy....

I said NPS nothing to do with the production of the intimidator. (except occassionally help with designs and part sourcing).

The websites, name, licensing, packaging, marketing, sponsorship, advertising etc... are a different issue in which NPS played a big part.

It was a synergy. Once Bob split off, he's had to take on all of that other stuff by himself and with his team.
