Smart Parts is simply trying to over-hype this marker that is still in RnD like they do with everything else.

oh yeah, the impulse is a low end electro.

oh yeah, low end gun $1150 i think the strange imp is on sale look how cheap these guns are

Accuracy is ALL in paint/barrel match? so there is no way any gun can shoot different than another if they have the same paint and barrel? i dont even think thats true even if they have the same reg. Thats about as funny as people saying one gun cant shoot farther than another.

The new design '04 Shocker is out.
I've held it in in my hand at my local shop just last Monday.

Its very small (abouth the same form factor as a Colt 45 minus the hopper elbow) and its lighter than a GZ (!).

The model my shop has is sky blue (nice) and it runs for $1049 including a AA and new MaxFlo 68/4500! A good deal I'd say.

Trust me, they arent being paid as well as Bad Company is to shoot the spyders. I moved from angels (just cuz they have a low resale right now does not mean they are not at the top of the heap) to impulses because the impulse fits my style of shooting more comfortably than does the angel. With the right internals it is an INCREDIBLE gun. I love mine, they are both great.
Just a public service announcement *steps off the soapbox*
dude you have NO point...any company sponsoring an Xball team isn't going to give the members the choice to shoot them, THEY MUST. And i'm sure bad company doesnt get paid any more/less to shoot a lesser gun, they tear it up regardless.

weston-a pro team is a pro team is a pro team. If you give them a fast gun with an eye, they will shoot up everbody. Perfect example-tippmann effect, most of these guys are still using regular tippmanns with revvys.

paint/barrel/consistency, there arent any more factors, and if there are some magic factors we dont know about, how bout you name them?

and one gun can shoot further than another at the same FPS unless there is backspin on the ball (flatline)
its simple physics, if they are going the same speed when they come out, does gravity or air resistance really care which gun they came out of?

ugh.. you somehow know how accurate a nerve is, yet it is still in rnd...

oh yea.. thats exactly smart parts logic behind making great guns... who let you in on that secret?
step 1: little target logo
step 2: box
step 3: good gun!!



the one thing you said that may be true.. the mag is smaller.. but you forget about that big... soda can size front grip, and.. how gay mags are..

Some where I read that the new technology in the nerve would really be quite interesting, but don't quote me on it because I might have been reading about another gun.

Supposedly, the computer chip inside the gun will be able to measure how fast the ball is being shot out the barrel, and can also compensate for any differnece in weather, etc., to keep it at the same fps, and to bring one of the most consistent shots available in paintball, brought to you once again by technology.

That is one of the very big reasons the price tag is a little higher then the shocker.

yeah, it works just like the Impulse, what else is new? So do the bob Long guns and the Bushmaster...all stacked open bolt blow backs. The difference si the Imp comes with junk internals, the Nerve dosen't. if you want to buy a private labe Impulse then you mind as well get the Nerve. Does that make it bad? no.

well all I know is I can walk it at 18 bps, when Vision comes out we'll see what happens. Of course I realize you can do that with other trigs too, not the point.

thank you all for making me dumber by reading that... heres the deal, the nerve shoots the ball like an impulse, but with totaly different electronics, thats all, but the fancy electronics will make it more consistent, thus more accurate beacause you can get more shots going the same speed, therefore the same distance, and as with all of the newer electros it will of course have more bps under its belt cause shooting fast is what makes players good now adays, not to mention it looks pretty sexy from the pics in the smart parts catalog i got today
