Shocker owners are nice peeps...

Yesterday I was at our outlaw field and we were talking about (guess what paintballers talk a lot about???) Markers. The crew is mostly obsessed with Egos and Geo's these days, me being the old man, is running the only Shocker (there was one Luxe in the crowd). A new guy I'm cultivating as a team mate just scored a good deal on an Ego 08 kit. Seemed the marker wasn't shooting as fast as it should. I couldn't help, because I know squat about Egos. I told him, hey jump on to PBNations Ego boards for some help, and he declared he was afraid to get flamed.

Funny, I thought. The Shocker guys are very patient and dont behave that way when someone asks. and then it dawned on me, Shocker Players are nicer.

So there. No please dont flame me Shocker Brothers.

I like to listen to ego owners talk ****, then watch their precious little waste of $1000 get mowed by my shocker because its the player that makes the game, not the gun

The other thing I like about my Shocker, I'v had it since 2007, and havn't felt the need to upgrade to anything elese (besides the eigenbolt:-). Ask an Ego guy how long he has had his ego, and they seem to be switching markers frequently. Players tend to keep their shockers for longer periods of time. I guess its a because they really them and they work.. so damn well. To bad about SP really.

Well the reason people that own egos switch is because P.E comes out with an ego and SL every year and players always want the newest and latest....now being that SP isn't around there is no need to buy the new shockers cause there isn't any...but if SP was up and running and had a new shocker i think all of us would have had it

Then again they hadn't released a new shocker in YEARS....

To be fair, we're probably nicer on average because we've probably been around longer. Not so long that we're cranky and cynical, but long enough to realize that shaving 6 oz. off a gun doesn't make it worth buying, and that 99% of used tournament markers that you can get for less than $400 will keep up with anything coming out today. So we're nicer than the new guys because we've got a lot more cash to go out for drinks with the ladies.

Yeah, true. Ask me again in 4 years when I'm into my 5th year of grad school and I'll probably be able to show you a whole new order of magnitude of cranky and cynical though.

Shocker owners should be so happy. So many companies these days, Lurker27, CS900, M98, Gis, Me and others are making the Shockers high-end.

I will never shoot anything other than a shocker, why? Because even though the main company has passed FOR NOW, we are lucky to have these smaller companies bust out new kick *** products for the SFT AND NXT.

I think that part of this is that those of us here are older and have been around and know better. Most of the Dye/PE owners are still teenagers that have their parents buy their gear for them every year. They are more into looking good than have'n equipment that is working and what they are use to. For them, if it's said that it must be one thing, then that's all it can be. We've been using our markers for years and know the quirks of them so we have no major problems with them. I know I'm interested in seeing what my project Shocker will be like when it's done. CS will be getting parts soon to start work on some custom milling of the SFT body from me.
