Best Shocker to own?

As in, which years & models were the most reliable, accurate, rangy, etc? I am interested in possibly picking one up so I am just trying to learn because I have been out of the game for years.

Internaly theyre all the same. So all that matters is which body you like best and what mods you want to do to it.

Things vary, it depends what you like.

Weight, barrel thread, break beam, closed body, pl milling, reg spacing/angle.
You can really set a shocker up any way you'd like.

Well, I am in Georgia so I'm not sure how that would affect my barrel choices. As for the mods and reg angle and such I really wouldn't know because I haven't played in so long. Maybe I should hit my local field and see what they have to say.

If you have other cocker threaded markers you might want to look into at least a PL shocker that uses cocker threads so you dont have to go out and buy new barrels.

Well how big are your hands? How important are eyes/looks/weight/rarity/performance to you? And how much are you looking to spend?

When I was in Augusta, I was shooting a Dark Shocker and also Hybrid Traitor SFT that both worked well for me. But that was also the two shockers that I used then, I've had nothing but great things from shockers.

It is all about preference and what you feel is best as they are essentially all the same inside. I would get my hands on some at your local field and see what styles/designs you like if there are ppl shooting them there. I have 3, 2 Private Label, and 1 NXT 09. They are all upped and all shoot great. I just have a fondness for my Dynasty, while my teammate has a love for the Octane. The octane is Cocker thread so there are more barrel choices out there for it, but you can find any barrel for ION/NXT thread markers too.

I've bought and sold a ton of guns. But my Dynasty SFT is my favorite all time marker.
