Default Re: 07 NXT Octane Shocker

Ahhhh! I am so sick of people saying the 07 Shockers look like IONs just because they have a SIMILAR reg..

Those people just don't realize the simplicity of an ION Reg compared to the Vertical Max-Flows (mostly because they are complete noobs and have never seen the internals of either Reg) on the 04 and 05 Shockers.

They have also made the internals on the new Shocker Regs a lot more high flow and efficient.

So people, It may resemble an ION Reg by the littlest bit, but show me a Max-Flow that out performs it..

On a different, happier note.. I really like the New Shockers. SP put the essential upgrades on them like the Break-Beam eyes and the HE bolt kits..

Um. I am saying the ENTIRE GUN looks like an ION. The reg is basicly an ION reg, but if I was talking about the reg, I would have said, "Omg look, another ION reg'd Shocker"

'Tis NOT an Ion reg. It was reworked, and made better. If it was the same, then I'd be completely disappointed in SP for yet ANOTHER ****ty production.

More high flow? My shocker already is a gas hog.

Higher flow means less gas hog I think? You can lower the dwell with higher flow, less air used to get the ball going the same speed if its high flow. Think back to your Pilot.

Yessir. These Shockers are straight killers. I'd buy one if they weren't backordered LIKE CRAZY right now. I was in the shop Saturday with cash in hand, but couldn't get one for another month maybe.

I wasnt to fond of 07 shockers but a teammate got his 07 Evil in and WOW is all i can say. It shoot so smooth and fast. The bolt almost looks the same they did change a little and they come stock with HE now.
