View Full Version : Shocker LPR

Allright, so I'm looking in to buying a LPR kit, and was wondering if the price is worth it.
Apparently with those who use the LPR kits, the solenoid has less wear on it and will last longer, and I sure don't want to spend the money for a solenoid...
BTW I can buy a Freeflow LPR kit like new, only aired up for $50.
Go for it? Yay or Nay?
Thanks for Your opinions!

Nay, you don't need it. There's no proof (or very little) that it does more than just lower the operating pressure a little. As far as the solenoid goes, I've shot my Shocker constantly almost every weekend of the past year plus a couple of months and the solenoid is still as good as it ever was. I don't know why these guys solenoids are wearing out, but I don't think the LPR is saving them!
In my opinion, they look sort of gay on a shocker....just my opinion though!

hmm..yeah the Evil LPR is the only one that looks sort of good on the shocker.
Now that I visualize this LPR on my shocker...I want to puke...hehe
But aren't LPR's supposed to provide a more consistent pressure as well as lower it?

Yeah, on a gun like a T1, Timmy or similar design, but the design of an 03 (and up) shocker is such that an LPR is totally unnecessary. That's why you never see anyone with one. Look at all the pictures on BSNation, and then look at all the pro pics you see - not a single LPR on any of them.
Now, one would think that if they had any possible NECESSARY benefit, wouldn't at least a few of those guns have them?

But they do have a benefit, Vike....To make you look like a rich-ass idiot. :)
