Difference... Blazer vs. Typhoon
Hello, I am a total newb and I did not use the search tool. Would someone please tell me the difference between a typhoon and a blazer? Is one better than the other? That might be a dumb question, but like I said " newbness".

Here is the best explanation I can give you having owned both...
A Typhoon is a Lamborghini, and a Blazer is a Corvette Z1. They are both fine guns, and they both shoot fast, but one is hand built.
At the field I often hear "What is that?" when people see the Blazer.
When they see the Typhoon they say "Oh my God! What is that???"

Roberts - good description.
I dont like PPS soldering, or PPS anodizing..so its kind of a toss up as far as finish work on either gun.
Im more bent towards hard coat anno than nickel plating though.

If were using cars, I think a Typhoon should be something a LOT heavier, like a DeLorean or one of those all-steel 70's muscle cars. The Blazer is more like a Lamborghini than a Typhoon would be, if you ask me. Fast and light and slick compared with fast and heavy and shiny and perhaps a little archaic.

Passing through rider
Biggest difference in the Stroker VS Typhoon is the valve train.
The Typhoon's valve and hammer are based of the Sheridan KP's, which Glenn P has said was a more efficeint system because the hammer had longer throw.
I assume this caused less hammer bounce and required a lighter springing in a semi.
The idea is nullified if you got a KP stroked, wood stock or not.
