Probably. If they just made an updated Impulse, people might actually say "Whoa they're making a quality gun again? Wow!" and buy tons of them.

Lol. Ask Ydna. I've heard from my sources that he has a nice design he made. *wink*

But really, all they need to do is take away the tray, change the size of the lower tube and internals, and mill it down a bit.

Not really creative at all. They just made a flashy looking one.

It looks nothing like the nerve and they should remake the nerve over the imp. No offense to imp owners.

^My feelings are hurted. The Nerve flailed. Good job on SPs part letting the SFT and the nerve use the same board. They really should just remake the Impulse and see how that goes, I think people would be a little confused why SP would bring back the Nerve seeing how the sales went.

Smart Parts killed the nerve with their marketing the fact that in uses the same board as the shocker is IMO a very good idea. Marketing killed the nerve

qft.

and because of that, if you have a nerve, you can't sell it for crap (not that I would want to sell mine), and people drag it through the mud "shocker's are way the pwnz0rz of nerves. thats why dynasty shoots them."

On the bright side however, when you take people out with your nerve/imp/promaster/spyder/rubber band/sling shot, they regret ever saying anything.

Marketing? I doubt that. It's a possibility, but I think that the fact the Nerve had the same board as the SFT was a bad idea. People just wanted the ramping board, so they just got that and the cheaper SFT. I'm not sure how marketing really did anything to it. Maybe price?

I don't know about that. You hardly see anyone keep their stock boards in.
I figure, they have an already well known platform, and they had the #1 team in the world backing it up. But it's all speculation, so you could be right.

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:

ANYWAYS.....
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.

Thanks sean....

Just got one in the mail yesterday. After setting it up and adjusting things a bit more to my liking (Everything is still 100% stock though), I shot a few rounds through it. Only had about 1 hour to work with it though before my classes started.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS:

PROS:
-- Trigger is very smooth and adjustable. Definitely the best feature.
-- Eye hasn't failed yet and never slows me up.
-- Extremely easy to clean w/ BOB. 2 minutes max to clean and be ready to play again.

CONS:
-- I expected it to be a bit lighter but I suppose it makes sense that it's heavier since the body is an all-metal design.
-- the design of the Reg. is bit too similar to the ion's in the sense that the metal casing around it swivels a ton when holding it. Kinda makes for a really sloppy shooting experience on the break. Getting used to it a bit though as time goes on.

POSSIBLE UPGRADES LATER:
-- Stiffi tip for Freak
-- QEV
-- possibly new reg if it keeps bothering me(should be ok'though)
-- eventually new board. probably a virtue if they're compatible.

Again this is just a quick 1-hr. first impressions but if I find anything else of interest after I play this weekend I'll be sure to post on it. If I can find a camera I'll post pics and maybe some video as well.
