Sorry, it's just a prototype, there are still a few tweaks and no looky until the final product is ready!
Note the postal scale reading.
A vid will be available later this week too!
First, this the Protege prototype, only 1 of 2 in existence and not the final product, the reason why you don't get to see the entire body.
Second, this is the next generation Intimidator and not be mistaken for with any other series of markers from Bob.
Third, while the introductory price is lower than any Intimidator before at $550, know that it handles, shoots quicker, achieves a higher rof and is more consistant than any Intimidator before it.
Fourth, an improved "Alias generation" valving has been incorporated for extreme reliability.
Fifth, no complicated balance valve to service.
Sixth, recoil is on par with the 4th generation models with a slightly less sound signature.
Seventh, the frame incorporates a patent pending unique feature of a volumizer, for lower pressure operation.
Eighth, efficiency will be around 2000 shoots with a 68/4500.
Ninth, capable of 30+ cycles per second, tested and verified through Ohler chrono at a rof of 28+bps. (using 4 eye capability)
Tenth, in hand and shooting, the die hard Intimidator fan will realize it's the pinnacle of all the Intimidators, at least until the Vice is released.
While I can see where some may make the comparisons wth the Defiant2, it would be juvenile to even compare the two.
The only features they share are stacked tube body with cocker barrel and feed port threads.
Eleventh, he Protege is 2D milled, while the Vice will be 3D milled, one of many reasons the Protege will be $200 less than the Vice.
While production has not started, BLAST plans to have 500+ of Proteges' available to the public and vendors at PSP World Cup.
Twelfth, the Protege and Vice will be 4 eye capable, the Protege will come with a single pair and Vice will be upgraded and come with 4.
While completely re-engineered, this marker is 100% Intimidator, just the fastest, most consistant, accurate and reliable version to date.
Like a well tuned autococker, this marker literally sucks balls down it's feed port.
Thirteenth, pressures for the LPR is 70psi, for the HPR is 210psi for approxiamately 300fps.
Fourteenth, operating DWELL IS AT 5 Milliseconds.
Fifthteenth, manifold mounted noid, a la Marq, fewer hoses for improved consistancy.
Oh crap! Sorry!
I'm 2 1/2 hours late for work, surely I will have more for you guys later.
