Need you opinion

Hey guys,

It's been a while since I've been active here thanks to the added course load of university and work. Anyways I've been looking at either upgrading my Vibe or just buying a new marker (new shocker perhaps).

So here it is, should I just buy the new BH / Virtue board, new ASA, trigger and possibly a Q-lock feed neck which would come to about 275$ or should I just save my money and upgrade to the new shocker?

Fiscally it makes sense to just upgrade, but what do you suggest?

the new shocker is weel worth the $499, comes with a STOCK board that has Debounce, ABS and PSP and millenium, also comes with a Q-lock. It is the shocker we shuld have had 2 years ago for the same price, SP is finally gettign the hang of it.

I say go with the shocker. The reason being is it is a higher quality marker and will feel better in the hands. Also, even though you might not be thinking of it right now, the resale on a that vibe would make you loose alot more money than if you bought a shocker and sold it. But if you like customizing your marker that much, then it's your money.

Yeah I have about 8 markers (low end mind you) but I think a higher end is in need for my collection. I really don't sell my markers I like to keep them.

selling guns only benefits if resale is high, i take that cash and buy a new gun good man, good man now fi u do keep the vibe anyways, getting the shocker or not. Trinity T-lock (feedneck), either a direct mount asa like the trinity one or get a rail like the one from SP and an asa like Sp's 1/4 on off or CP or boblong. up to u. Cp barrel but it's personal pref.....get a freak kit.....it will work on both shocker and vibe liek mine trinity trigger if u so wish

I already have an All-American and Freak Jr. so I'd just have to buy a new back if worse came to worse.
