The point was for those who aren't massively anti-SP biased to respond, not you.

Ydna he just told you the answer.

Thats the truth. Putting aside my SP hate for a moment, a friend of mine purchased a Nerve sometime in late summer, when it was first released. The first time he went to chrono it with paint, he said he couldn't get the velocity over 240. So he opened it up probably attempting to relube it or clean it, and he found metal shavings inside. He also had a problem with his ram assembly (I think, not familiar with how the Nerve works) and so he sent his gun away to Badlands Canada, to get teched. It was at Badlands for like 1 and a half months where they kept trying to fix it. Eventually they got frustrated and sent it to the Smart Parts factory where they couldn't fix it eithor, so they replaced the gun for free, which I thought was pretty cool.

So now its December, 2004. He gets his new, replacement Nerve in and goes to play a tryout with it. I wasn't at that tryout, but apparently his new replacement nerve broke again, and after trying to fix it for about a week he sent it back to Badlands Canada. Right after that team tryout, which was for Canadian Nationals 2005, he bought a DM4 and played all the practices leading up to Nats and Nationals (in January 2k5) with his DM4. To be honest I don't think his replacement (or maybe its replacement?) Nerve has come back to him yet.

I felt bad for my friend when he's owned the gun since sometime in early September but hasn't once been able to play with it without it breaking down. Thats 6 months, pretty crappy experience for a $1600 gun (Canadian) in my opinion.

You can take your horror stories and get in line. I don't know if you think like some of the others before you but let me say it again: one persons experience with the guns is not token of the entire world.
It's this simple. You have a nerve with problems, but not everybody does. I have played with dozens of nerves and shockers right out of the box with no problems whatsoever. In fact I have yet to find one that required any attention at all besides for cleaning the regulator.
I would gladly pay another $1000 for a Nerve given the experience I have had with them. If yours is bad then that is a shame, but it doesn't mean didley****.

Yes, becuase all we have to do is make the little disclaimer at the beginning and it will completely change what we mean to say? I'll have to remember to do that next time I feel the need to sound as if my experience is worth something when it most obviously isn't.

...or perhaps I don't feel the need to shove around my opinion where it doesn't belong? Is that what you meant to say?

I heard all the hype about the ion, and it is so stupid i just laughed, it looks stupid, probally doesnt have a good reg, imp barrels, who has imp barrels besde imp and pimp owners, they should have made it cocker threads thaat way trix and dm4 and cocker owners,.. a much larger group could take intererst. also the break beams are probally really crapy, and i bet this thing wont perform any better than an average spyder

."We're proud to have produced a paintball marker like no other. The Ion was built to be the marker for anyone who loves the game: "

in my opinion if they loved the game they would sell such a poorly designed pos!!

Wait till you shoot it, then you can talk.
Every company talks alot about how good their markers are...thats how they sell them isn't it?
Alot of stupid kids in here that like to throw cash around because someone on a forum said its good.
