Post Another pro team using timmies next season.

I'm not sure if it has already been brought up, but if it has, then just ignore this post...

I thought the timmy owners might find this interesting. Starting next year, Ground Zero (Black and Gold) will be dropping their Adrenalin sponsorship and instead will be shooting special edition GZ Intimidators.

Just a news tidbit i picked up from a friend. Might be old to some, but it was new to me.

Yes and i believe some if not all of Aftershock will be shooting intimidators next season. They borrowed the BL Ironmen team's guns. They played awsome with them, won Atlantic City, and didnt want to give them back. I think they all want them.

Aftershock is a PMI sponsored team. I'm sure there would be problems with them shooting a gun marketed by NPS

Well they used them in Atlantic City in the finals. I was there and i was watching them chronoing on field. I think one or two of them already had timmys. Anyway, they shot them and liked them A LOT. They may shoot them, they may not.

Part of the reason why GZ is switching over is that Jerry braun and WDp had a bit of a falling out. So Bob Long was kind enough to work something out with them...

Should be sweet though. I'd like to see how the milling is going to be as well as the added stuff.

As for Shock using timmies, maybe, maybe not.

I also heard about GZ shooting Bob's guns next year, should be cool to see how they turn out. I know a lot of players on Aftershock were using Intimidators at the cup. I know all their back guys were using them.

Mostly all of us on Kapp Factory Team (OC) are using them. They are by far the best shooting gun out right now, and by far the most consistent.

So look for more and more teams to shoot these awesome guns.

Late!

You know, all these pro and am teams using timmy's is gonna go a long way towards changing "Yeah the timmy is great for the price" into "The timmy is great regardless of price".

Yea I know alittle bit about the gun. I just had the ripper board put in and now my trigger goes crazy. I still have to flip over the microswitch and cut it alittle. But I kind like it when it goes reactive.

My new Intimidator is one of the best guns I have ever shot, and I will always shoot them. Can't wait for some of the new goodies coming from Bob Long, should be off the hook!

Someone could ask Jim Murray of PBC for sure, but he would probably charge us to answer.

Me and pineapple used to get in arguments all the time over the timmy versus angel crap. He used to swear by his angel less than 2 months ago. Funny, I told him my timmy was better. Now I'm just gonna have to rub it in a while. lol

what neildepainter wrote is kind of ironic.

i remember when neil would swear by his timmy and say that his timmy was better. pineapple in return would swear by his angel and say that he would never shoot anything but his angel (basically he would never buy a timmy)

the funny thing is, pineapple now shoots a timmy...at least the past few times i played with him at fairgrounds. and neil now shoots angel. (neil, you may still own the timmy, but i haven't seen you shoot it since you picked up the angel.)

how funny is that.

Well neil is probably just trying to fix what happened when he got his angel. This is a direct quote from what he said on the Angel vs Timmy thread at MTN's boards.
"angel + me = blender. I think this equation about sums up my angel.

I definately need to work on that equation to get angel + me = painter "
He's is most likely trying to fix that.
