Do a search on "Bob Long". That is where you will find the Timmy stuff (Intimidator, is actually the correct name. Timmy is just the nick name).

I got mine off of ebay for a couple dollar. I used the hard black ones with my Halo B hopper.

I called Bob Long to buy some, and they sent me a handfull for free of the black ones. I must have caught them on a good day or something.

BTW, Kingman pretty much offers the same detents since they realized the whole Dbl feed issue (stronger/stiffer). Im guessing that if you call them, they would send you a few as warranty replacements. They did for me.

ok thank you all, yes i do remember seeing those on ebay, however the ones i saw were not listed as timmy or intimidator. it just simply said spyder ball detent. so now thats out of the way, i wish we could use those fancy ball detents for the new spyder designs. oh well, thanks again!
