Yes you will be fine. I used to wrap the grip with from tape and then put on the panel grips.

I just have what's in my pic. No other grips. Just tape up the grips, like with electrical tape? And the hopper? I'm a old newbie so bear with me...

I can't see the gun very well in the picture but you would be ok without doing anything. But I put the extra tape around the frame just in case. Then installed the panel grips.

You should not use a speedfeed on the hopper. Rain will affect your balls with a speedfeed.

Is there supposed to be a pic in this thread?


As a general rule, your timmy should be good in the rain just how it is. Just clamp the screws down so everything is snug and no water should be able to make its way into the electronics.

I used mine in the rain quite a bit back when I had an Alias and it worked fine. Many of the boards have water resistant coating on them (not sure if the stock does or not). You still want to try and prevent moisture from getting in to the board area as much as possible and of course dry everything out ASAP after playing. We used to use some electrical tape below the grip, around the panel to help protect it (not sure if this does much or not). Another good idea is to put tape over the porting of your barrel to try and salvage as much accuracy as possible (it is still going to suffer). Lastly due to the exposed bolt, an intimidator is going to simply get more water into the breach area of the gun. This will make it a little less accurate when it is raining than some other designs that have the bolt completely sealed off (in my experience), so keep that in mind.

Just be careful. I killed a board last year during a rain session. Tape it up.
