I believe shockers are a great way to get back into the game man. They can be wicked fast guns, and amazingly dependable with after game maintenance and cleanings. You take care of a shocker and you'll never regret owning one. Once you spend some more time with it, you can start adding different things onto it. Bolts, regs, boards, barrels, feednecks and whatever else you can imagine.

Like most people in this thread have already said, it comes down to appearances and social hype on specific guns. Most basic SFT/NXT shockers are cheaper to begin with, once you get into the Dynasty's, Nasty's, Dark's and so forth the prices rise. Shop around and make an effort to get what you want. Because it's always nice to have what you like.

The NXT Shockers have the most comfortable trigger frames. Also the selection of aftermarket triggers is better for the NXT's.

how is a sft better then a nxt when you have nothing but better features on a nxt.
1. better trigger frames by far screw in screws for board trigger is so much better then pins.
2. break beam eyes
3. better trigger options
4. this one is a option but better PL looking models.

Better stock reg and denent system is the big one for me. Could care less about the board and trigger pins as that is just a one time deal usually.

I would definitely not go as far to say that the nxt has better looking PL's either compared to the ones that have sft counterparts.

IMO
Strange sft > strange nxt
Ton ton sft > ton ton nxt
octane sft < octane nxt
06 dynasty = dynatsy nxt
05 dynasty < dynasty nxt
Waffle dynasty > dynasty nxt
hybrid sft > hybrid nxt
shocktech sft > shocktech nxt
Nasty sft > nasty nxt

And like inmylife said sft's had far better detents. I actually prefer the feel of the sft frame over the nxt particularly the trigger.break beam eyes and reflective eyes work all the same IMO never had a real issue with either but the sft reflective eyes are damn sure easier to install without breaking. Nxt had better feedneck threads. Simple thing is, its all a matter of opinion and we all have different opinions.
