Ugh...they don't bring back discontinued markers yet the shocker you know today just happened to share the name of another marker by the same name and company? !!!!

Also, I read something once from a good source (memory is vague now), saying that the nerve isn't meant to be an improved impulse and that's just a misconception people have. It had very good justification behind it too

There is no official word about a new impulse, but it is a possibility...a profitable one at that.

the shoebox shocker was still being made in 2k2, it wasnt discontinued and then re-engineered, impulses are officially discontinued, and no new model has come out

and i never said the nerve was an improved impulse, the nerve shares most of the components of the pulse, bounce vision, a ram, poppet valve and bolt, but it takes shocker frames, has no external moving parts and comes completely up'd

It wasn't discontinued (I assume) because it was still competitive at the time of release. An impulse is almost obsolete now for the cost and markets' demand. I think it's a possibility, just cause of the reputation it has developed.

Oh, and although this isn't very relevant...nerves have some after-market parts now to improve efficiency

Man, it would be sweet if they cut a deal with ndz or so and started manufacturing a fully upped imp with all new light milling, similar to pythons.

here is what I posted;
guys,
I just got back from castle conquest where SP had a tent, and an Excellent Tech who did a **** load of FREE work and parts on my sons shocker ,
but the real news is, while visiting the tent later in the day, I met a regional sales rep, who happens to be a Philly American, and is in the "know"
got talking to him about the imp, he has led me to believe that the imp is soon to be ressurrected : , in a very trimmed down look, very much an imp,but lighter tighter and shorter,
all of our prayers may be answered soon,
though the one thing that he made clear was that I didn't get my information from him.

BTW, for the old schoolers, he was the first pro player to use an imp in a tourney, it was a prototype model an he was great to talk too, got his business card for a direct line to find out more poop on our beloved gun


if you would like to know who I spoke to. send me a PM and I'll share his name with you

Well, If he really has information...I'll go with what he said...although I don't really understand why. The ION is a very competitive gun and is dominating the market right now so why would SP focus on a gun that has somewhat died out and as some have said "been replaced". It may be true...and from what White Trash says helps to prove it, but still, I don't understand why.
