Is shocker bringing sexy back?

Since all this hype of the new SP Shocker RSX y'all think people will start buying the sft or nxt? Cause I just purchased an sft and is now saving for an rsx. I am a huge shocker fan!

I for one do not like the look or design of the rsx at all, but i will say that the older models i am fond of have always seemed to have been in high demand.

Thats the thing about shockers is great value for the money. The RSX is an ion engine (which is a proven design) in a new shell. I wonder what patents SP still owns.

I don't love the look of the gun, but I'm sure it will perform great.

I've been wondering the same for a while... I haven't kept up with the org charts as they've changed. I contacted KEE a while ago to do some digging, and at that time they stated that they didn't own any of the SP patents (at least related to the shocker)... So if you find anything out about this, please share.

As I understand it, none.

Ya. I guess we got caught up in this new company being Smart Parts at first rather than "Shocker Paintball".

I don't think the RSX is going to cause a resurgence in the old models, honestly they're only really popular among players who were around in the 1998-2009 era (which seem to be getting back into paintball lately).

The newer players don't have any nostalgia for them.

The old shockers popularity will run down as spare parts run out. The RSX is creating a new generation of shocker owners while tapping into the old generation's memories.

So is there any affiliation between this "shocker RSX " and the Gardner brothers? Before it gettaken out of contex, not knocking either. It just seems a little ironic that a new shocker is released as well as the resurgence of the NXL within a months or 2 of one another.. looking forward to both either way.

In the news thread, it was stated that Smart Parts Europe has said that Shocker Paintball is a company of theirs.
