Hello Shocker people! I know you guys love my updates so some of you will be very happy with this one!!
New frames on the horizon.
These frames are a major departure from the frames made by Smart Parts. The design is drastically altered, but the frames still use all stock/OEM Shocker parts like triggers, grips, and lower boards. The frames are based on the Nummech VL design but with some special enhancements specifically for Shocker/Nerve parts.
There are some compatibility issues with older Shocker SFT parts. I'm working on a list to show all the items that can be used. Hold tight!
In terms of the overall shape, Dark Shocker SFT frames are probably the closest OEM frame to these new ones. They have an ergonomic shape on the rear spine, but not as pronounced as a Tonton SFT frame. However, my Pie frames have a MUCH thinner distance around the thumb-webbing area. This is where the design changes really come into play.
I realize it's a little "late in the game" for releasing a new aftermarket upgrade, but I've wanted to see this project finished ever since I first created it. These frames were one of the first products I designed during the formation of the company which would become Nummech Products in 2009. But the frames never went into production because the original design was too costly to fabricate.
Skipping ahead to present day, I've been steadily working on adjusting the design to the point where the frames are now a viable item and everyone can enjoy them!!
So the bottomline is these frames will make a nice addition to any project marker, or be useful if you're looking for an upgrade to revitalize a Shocker/Nerve you already have. The frame has some future-proofing aspects that make life easy.
They're not quite done yet, I'm still working on the final details. But they will be available in a few weeks!
