just my 2 cents
its just about supply and demand. shockers have terrible resale value, despite the pro teams that shoot them. moreover, the pro teams winning events are probably shooting the same guns as those losing events, since dye and PE sponsor far and away the most teams. the price of the gun doesn't have anything to do with who wins or loses, it has everything to do with new model availability and their direct competition prices.
