I've answered this many times... Marketing.. plus first batch was up to par... and the SFT shocker came out about the same time... then took off as the SP flagship.. Price of nerve didn't help bring back the players since the SFT shocker was killing for SP. There is more to it than that.. the poor nerve never really had a chance.
The first batch of SFT shocker didn't have the nerve board. So the nerve had the leg up with that, but later 04ish time, the SFT came out with the nerve board stock.
Some nerve history:
I thought this was an EOS thread....
I might have mine here in a couple weeks or so. I'll post pics, and vid once I get it going.
