Need Shocker Advice

Here's my situation. I'm sick of my primary gun breaking down on me and giving me nothing but problems, so I've decided to sell it once I get a new solenoid and get a shocker, because I've heard that they are reliable, and having recently shot one, I'm in love. I want this shocker to be the most tricked out shocker wise of upgrades and things. Money is no limitation. Here's where I need shocker family help. What are some essential upgrades for someone who has money to blow? I've heard there's a new lurker bolt that gets like 2300 shots on a tank, need that haha!
What I want:
Efficiency
Smoothness
Soft on Paint
Quietness
BEST BOARD FOR THE SHOCKER

Thanks Also, should I get an NXT or SFT? What's the difference between the two? Thanks

Please browse the sticky. Lots of this is answered.

Pretty much any board is going to be a good one. I am personally a huge fan of virtue. But Tadao makes an awesome board. Lots of options here.

The Lurker bolt will give you most of what you're asking for already. Use that bolt and a well-ported barrel and it'll be barely audible to the people you're shooting at.
I love the Tadao M7 board. It can be had fairly cheap if you scout around.

NXT vs/ SFT is more or less personal preference.
The NXT is newer, has break-beam eyes, an Ion-thread barrel, different feedneck threads, and a different reg.
The SFT is slightly older, has a reflective eye (mine have never been a problem,) a proprietary barrel, Ion-thread feedneck, and a (IMO) more serviceable reg.
All bolt kits and internals (except some electronics) are interchangeable between the two.

Lurker bolt and the lurker barrel are legit. They really the only ups you need. You can fine tune it with a couple mods to make it what you want.

most programable board would be the APE rampage if you can find one. Tadao and Hater are my second and third favorite; very user friendly and Tadoa can serviced under a lifetime warranty like virtue but are better quality IMO.

My 2 cents

To add to nighthunter... The SFT uses Shocker threaded barrels. This is the SFT & older "shoebox" style Shockers. These barrels can be found for great deals as not a lot of people are still looking for them. Also if you look into some of the private label Shockers SFT or NXT, some use cocker threaded barrels.

I've been looking on B/S/T for barrels, and while they might be low priced, there are not a lot of people selling them from what I've found

Ya I'm eventually either getting a Lurker Eigenbarrel (.684?) or another back for my CP (.682?).

Didn't think to check ebay..
