Question regarding psp ramp?

Hey I've always seen videos where people would be able to ramp shockers and just hold down the trigger, just wondering is this a feature on just shocker boards?

No. It is not unique to Shocker boards. Until somewhat recently Smart Parts didn't even have PSP modes on their boards. If they are pulling three times & holding on the fourth & it goes full auto than it is actually NXL mode.

The difference between PSP burst/ramp & NXL is mostly having to continue to pull with PSP to maintain the ramping. While with NXL you can just hold trigger down on the fourth shot at a certain rate of fire (four shots at a rate of either 5 or 6 bps if I remember correctly) & it will go full auto.

Yep - as stated, if people are holding the trigger and the marker is firing, then that isn't PSP ramping, and isn't PSP legal. It's NXL mode, which is an entirely different thing all together.

Newer Shockers with the '09 tournament board would have both PSP ramping and NXL mode, as well as semi auto, Millennium mode and ramping.

Prior to that, Shockers had the Nerve board, which had semi or ramping, with four ramp activation rates. The ramp mode was not specifically PSP ramping, but was PSP legal.

The earliest Shocker boards were semi auto only.

Some Shockers would have come with "Team" boards. These gave semi, ramping or auto, with a wider range of ramp activation rates than the Nerve board. The full auto mode could be set up to provide NXL Auto mode.
