This is the best marker that I have ever owned with a few ups and downs. When I first bought it (used) the first thing I did was change the feedneck and the ASA. Smart Parts really screwed us by putting on a horrible feedneck that doesn't fit anything and by placing a horrible ASA that strips tank threads.
-I recommend getting the Q-Lock feedneck and the CP on/off

When I purchased my NXT, it came with the Predator 10.0 board and I cannot complain about that board. It really opens up a lot of options for programming your marker.

Now to actually shooting the NXT. When I first shot this thing I was amazed. I've never really shot a faster marker with such low recoil. I have mine running at 200psi which is a bit high for an LP marker but it shoots great! It isn't very consistent with the stock bolt but I may be getting the Eigen bolt if I feel like blowing money. A lot of people complain about first shot drop off with the shockers. I never really get FSDO. I do occasionally but if you take care of the marker it will take care of you. The regulator performs pretty well. It sometimes gives me spikes of +/-10 but one it is re-lubed and broken in it shoots ropes. That can easily be fixed by getting a AKA Sidewinder or a 2-Liter reg (best on the market).

Overall, this is a great marker for the price. I highly recommend it to people that will take great care of it!

i have owned several shockers to include sft and nxt version and i have never had a good experiance with them at all. dont get me wrong it is a decent gun . really fast, and has a lot of cheap upgrades but the bottom line is it takes a lot of up keeping to keep a shocker running smooth way more than any other spoolie i have ever owned i have even sent my guns in to be teched and still when they return i get horrible efficiency and terrible shot drop off and consistency after all 6 of my shockers we completely rebuilt and fine tuned they still were not reliable at all but if you know what youre doing and you dont mind the constant up keep of a shocker its not a bad gun i would give it a 3.5 out of 5

Smart Parts Shocker NXT Love the feel and shot of a Shocker still smoother than alot of the newer spools that have come out and no kick at all with a sprung bolt. Milling is nice also and shockers just look sick in person...

Smart Parts Shocker NXT I had 4x4 SF, and so I treated myself to another shocker. Love it, fast and accurate with good looks.

Smart Parts Shocker NXT Gun is too heavy and trying to change the velocity on it is hard to do.

I have been shooting the NXT for about a season, and I love it. 3 piece bolt system makes for easy maintenance.

Stock board blows....I upgraded to the hater board and couldn't be happier.

Stock feed neck is terrible....I just picked up a random warrior clamping feed neck. Not happy with the quality of the aftermarket part...but my empire actually fit in it lol.

Overall great gun if you can find it for the right price.
