I am new to the forum as of today and need some advice. I have a old used Bob long Texas intimidator that constantly fails but seems to be working fine fingers crossed for sat. I have a steely tank, used velocity, cheap junky nxe podpack and jt proflex. I am looking to upgrade but Don't have much money at all. I am looking at a Gog Extcy, Pinokio, ans gear carbon fiber tank, and some good pants. I any advice would be greatly appreciated and I am never buying used to again.
Sorry for the long read but thanks for the help, gnarlee

that sucks that you cant even trust your own gun, unless you know what your doing then the timmy most likely wont be very friendly for you.

First of all make sure you got a great an comfortable mask. No out of the box JT raptor mask will do. I bought a pair of events for $100 while I had a tippmann gryphon! Mask always comes first the n after mask is upgraded go for other things. And if you already have a nice mask the extcy is a pretty good gun for the price range and I suggest a ninja tank (size varies with your size) then some pants you like (any major brand makes decent pants) also there is some pants and other things on sale right now at ANSGear.com.

Hope I have helped in some way!

If your vlocity is working just fine I would recommend getting the Extcy then Pinokio. If you can't trust your intimidator to work then that's like going out without a gun. You don't know if it will work or not. The extcy is a great gun! By the way, Welcome to TechPB :)

Check out intimidatorowners.com for help with the Timmy. They're extremely helpful an can probably help you out a ton. Or post it on the BST, on either there or here. Heck, I'd want to buy the thing myself probably Posted Image

i'll get it first

but if you price it right you may get most of your setup from the money that you got the timmy for.

Set up sounds great hopefully it won't give out on you, but you could see it or trade in on the BST and get a way better gun than the EXTCY.Many guys know how to fix em and the timmys are a very sought after marker. Also if you have a proshop near by they could fix it and the timmy would be way better than some EXTCY.....

Welcome to the forums!(hurry,leave while you can ) :P

And as for the soon to be setup,I would suggest getting a ninja 68/4500 because ninja regulators are the best in the buisness.You can service them yourself(fix a burst disc,clean you shims,etc.)and you can change the output pressure to whatever you want.Other than that,it seems good!

He has a JT Proflex, buying a JT Raptor would be a downgrade.


I'm going to suggest sticking with your VLocity for a while to save on money, as long as the VLocity is working. It's a great hopper.

What exactly is wrong with your Intimidator? It may be an easy fix for somebody who knows what they are doing, and there are plenty of people here who are knowledgeable and willing to help.

I would honestly give your local pro shop a few bucks and have them fix it.

The Intimidator will be better than anything in the sub $200 range in my honest opinion.

What general area is it leaking out of? I may be able to help.

Might be a poppet oring. Does the solenoid cycle air?

If you're confident, I would just rebuild the whole gun. That would give you some extra cash to spend on whatever else you need.

If the leak is from the frame it's most likely a barb/washer or hose issue, hopefully not the solienoid. If you take off the side plate of the frame, you can probably hear/feel where exactly the leak is coming from.

True. I say extcy because it's cheaper (although with the free invert too with the mini it's about tied for price with the mini) has an on off asa and is a lot simpler to maintain. That's just off the top of my head, the biggest thing about the mini is that it's small, if it fit's your hands then I would say Mini over Extcy but if it doesn't well the Extcy has more comparable ergonomics to other guns out there.

Mini with too, vmax is a bit spotty sometimes they feed 12.5 no problem other times they are struggling to keep 11 bps.

Extcy. Gog is the new smart Parts but they have a way better product line and customer service. But Kee (aka Empire) has a pretty amazing customer service as well and a great product line. Overall it's what suits your preference. Oh and you may want to look into an old supergun like a dm6. I would still say fix the Timmy over all of what I mentioned though :P

Well then, I would suggest having your proshop take a look at it and get a quote on how much it would cost to get it fixed or even somebody on here help you out. Remember though old supergun>new mid/low end.

I had an older style intimidator, and the thing was a bitch to do maintenance on. It wasn't neccessarily difficult, it was just a lot more complicated than newer guns and a lot of stuff could go wrong if you didn't know exactly what you were doing. Plus I absolutally hate the membrane pad that controls the board, and the stock frenzy board is impossible to set up for 12.5 psp. Not too mention, the intimidator is much bulkier and heavier than newer guns.


I don't think that the extcy would be a bad choice at all. They use proven technology, and with an aftermarket bolt such as the L7, it can have awesome efficiency and shoot just as good as the intimidator.

Not to hate on the Timmy, but I had a headache with mine and I can say that it wasn't worth it for me, so I can definitely see why gnarlee is hesitant to bother with older guns.
Don't hesitate, just sell the thing and move on to something simpler. There are a hundred things that can go wrong during a paintball game, so anything that you can do to take your equipment out of that equation the better.
