Tracking down an 09 Impulse

Hey Guys,

I've been playing since like 04, and my first real cool gun was a Strange impulse. I got out of the sport in 07, and how now found my way back in, I know after reading the last impulse's produced were in 2009. However for the life of me I can't track one down that's for sale, I know SP went out of business, but there has to be one out there for sale.

Any tips on where I could track one down? I've been searching PBN,Ebay, even Craigslist.

Thanks

Don't know if your interested but empire (kee) bought smart parts intellectual property and remade the impulse in the JT flag. It's not a gas through like the 09 was and they got rid of the oled board. But mechanically the same gun

Yeah I've looked at those, and I may, but I'm looking for an 09 for that nostalgia feeling. But thanks for the info.

To my knowledge, the only parts on the entire gun that interchange are the ram and ram cap. Other than that, nothing interchanges and the guns are built and function very differently. The only real things that they have in common is their names, balanced valve design (which is still dissimilar between the two guns), and the fact that they both shoot paintballs. I have not had the chance to get my hands on the JT Impulse, but from what I have heard the shot feel is similar, with the 09 feeling smoother due to the added weight.

I'd like to say good luck to anyone looking to purchase an 09 Impulse as there are very few still in the wild. If you find one up for sale don't hesitate to pick it up, as chances are that it will be the only one you see for awhile.

Also the JT Impulse, which I haven't gotten hands on yet, shares design concepts and a name with the 09, however its setup is far more similar to an ego (pre-LV1) with a balanced valve. From what I've heard the JT shoots nice but no one that I've talked to about it has shot an 09 to compare it to.

All in all if you can get an 09 Impulse, buy it. I love my 09 and I'll never sell it. If I ever stop playing paintball, it will become a piece of art on my wall.

I have been searching for the last 3 months to find an 09 impy in decent condition. Finally found one. Pretty expensive but worth it. It probably wont see many more games in its life.

I don't see any point in that. I use the pair that I have all the time, and they haven't failed me yet after almost 2 years of use since I got the first one. The best collectibles are the ones that are out on the fields for people to see.

The JT impulse introduced an OLED screen while the 09 was an LED.

The 09 is "balanced" by minimalizing the amount of pressure the valve holds itself shut with and replaces that pressure with nothing by exposing it to the atmosphere. The valve seals using a very light amount of the pressure on the poppet and a light spring.

The JT uses LPR pressure instead of exposing the poppet to the atmosphere.

I was quite surprised to walk into a Paintball shop a few weeks ago and asked the owner if he had an 09 impulse. His response was a nonchalant "yes". To which I asked if he was serious, If I could see it and if it was for sale. All of which were answered with a nonchalant "yes". Well needless to say, Its now at my house, With an extra luxe battery & 2 luxe chargers. It was blind and missing both detents but I was able to get both of those issues sorted quickly and relatively cheaply. The only disappointment (aside from paying up for a blind gun) was that it did not have the impulse barrel, instead had only a "stock" black freak barrel back. It was my understanding that the 09 impulse had a different milled freak back similar to the luxe back and AA tips. I recently used a lucky barrel and was so impressed that it now has a lucky barrel on it instead. But I am still looking for another 09 Impulse, or 2, or 3. I grew up on smart parts guns and they are by far my absolute favorite.

I am on the market for an 09 also. At one point, I had two of the five original purple anno ones, but like an idiot, I sold them both. I regret it every day. =(

I just jumped on pbn after years of being out of the sport to see what happened to these markers. Seems like they are hard to come by now. I had a low serial number gold/black that I purchased from compulsive paintball the first week they received them. I ended up selling it to some young kid for dirt cheap. Hopefully it is still alive haha

I too am getting back into paintball. As the owner of one proud break-beam nasty impulse I love the thought of a new impy.
