If you plan on getting a Timmy, I hope you read up on your Babysitter books cause these things need constant care and in-depth know how. I suppose if you spent the money, you are already prepared for those things. I bought a classic timmy back in '01 and it performed fantastically every time I used it. After a year of basic maintenance, the hoses were shot and then it was a domino effect. I must've taken the gun apart several hundred times trying to figure out what was wrong. Even my local pro shop, the edge in WI, couldnt even figure it out (hence why most of them are worthless). Sending it back to the factory was the only option, but for all those who own a timmmy, you know thats kissing a whole paintball season goodbye. Last year I shattered my ankle so I wasnt able to use it then. Finally, I eagerly gassed it up a month ago only to hear a pop and fizzle as air leaked out. I wasnt too surprised, though disappointed. Obviously enough it was the solenoid. Being at the end of my rope, I'm paying someone else to fix it. The second gun I gassed up this season was my prolite which hadnt been used over 2 years and as usual, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it which lead me to recently buying an A-5. OVERALL: I plan on buying another Timmy as soon as I can. They look FEMALE DOGin with the performance to back it up.
