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".
Thanks

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.

If the Typhoon is a Ferrari, then a Stroker is a Fiero.

Strokers are semis build from Sheridan pump guns, Typhoons are scratch build semis.

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.
