Differences are: Adrenaline Milling, Feedneck, Trigger & Frame (Both XLS & CVO), Luxe ASA and the top tier models have custom anodizing and grips. (I could be forgetting a couple things)
The bolt has the Luxe ICE coating as well a different release mechanism.

I'll let you know after this weekend. Ive owned a stock shocker so im eager to see what differences in the shot there are. I can say firsthand the anodizing is top notch and zero milling marks that I can see.

I’d order one if the combo I wanted wasn’t a insane amount of money.

Just want a gloss black cvo with the game timer in the frame. But to get the game timer I have to get one of the top tier ones.

Just get a talking kitchen timer and clip it to the strap on your mask like we did when men were men and the sheep ran scared.

Review of the Adrenaline Shocker (so far)

I received my Adrenaline Shocker Epic Class last week. Below are some different categories and I will go over each one.

Delivery/Packaging/Presentation

I was told ahead of time that the cases weren’t ready to be shipped yet so I was completely OK with them shipping the gun out ahead of time so I could use it. It arrived in a good size box with plenty of packaging materials. The gun was in a neoprene laptop sleeve and the spare parts were wrapped in foam packing sheets and tapped. Everything arrived pristine and it came with a CVO quick start guide, lube, spare parts kit, but no barrel sock or allen keys. Shipping was very fast and they required a signature which I greatly appreciate. They also set it up with the XLS frame as I had requested so I didn’t need to do anything to the marker for me to use it at practice yesterday. Ultimately this section of the review will change when the real case comes in, but for now, it was just fine.

Anodizing/Milling

The milling on this gun is absolutely beautiful. No milling marks that I can find anywhere on this gun. It is slightly annoying that the ripples in the milling on the frame of the gun don’t match up with the body of the gun. The ripples/ridges on the frame are very small, so its something that is hard to notice and it took me about an hour to notice this myself. If you go on Adrenaline’s FB page, my gun had the lifesaver fade (green/yellow/orange/red/purple) and it is more gorgeous in the sunlight than in the pictures. The difference in price between the Rare and Epic level classes is justified by the quality of the anodizing. Disclaimer, this anodizing was done by Blizzard and not done by their “normal” anodizer who I believe is caustic.

Adrenaline Upgrades/Mods

I have to say this first, the new back cap is ****ing awesome! Not only does it look cool, but being able to degas an XLS with a simple quarter turn of the back cap instead of dry firing is so ****ing sweet. Might seem like a small thing to me, but guns that hold a shot after disengaging the ASA are a pet peeve of mine. The luxe ASA is a massive upgrade over the XLS ASA, my old XLS ASA would sometimes unscrew itself over the course of a match/point. The ICE coating makes a noticeable difference on the feel of the engine. Not a massive difference, but it certainly is there. The main benefit is obviously going to be the number of cycles between maintenance. I haven’t used the CVO frame yet, so I can’t speak to that. Last thing I want to mention is the blade trigger on the XLS frame is sweet.

Performance

Playing in Boston in October can be challenging. Its cold in the mornings (45ish) and then can get pretty warm (65-70ish) by noon. That being said, we were playing with a mix of 3 star/4 star and leftover ultra evil from a tournament 2 weeks ago. Every gun was blending the ultra evil so that was to be expected, but the 3 and 4 star was handled easily. Air efficiency was what I expected out of the XLS platform and it cycled well the entire day, no shoot down or FSDO.

Conclusion

The adrenaline shocker is an awesome piece of kit that will remain in my collection. It takes what was a proven design and improves on it significantly. The only gripes I had with it was the slight milling mismatch and the missing allen keys and barrel sock. Other than that, I am extremely happy with my purchase and I hope this review can convince others to pick one up as well.

That one looks sooo good in person. Great choice. You can see the blank for the tool set in the case cut. They will ship with case (would have shipped them ahead of time but we dont have them yet from Shocker).

Is that the one anodized the same color as the old Ironmen LCD angels?

There were a few of these in the wild at the last mechanical tournament I played in (three on one team in fact). Can confirm that they absolutely haul ***. Was definitely annoying to be on the receiving end as that teams strategy was to pretty much spray the field continuously (which worked pretty well for them to some extent), however I was definitely impressed by the speed that these guns could produce and they seemed quite a bit faster than the closest competition (plenty of M-170Rs, Gmeks with upgraded triggers, CVOs, etc.).

Eh. I shoot no faster or slower regardless on these new guns. All such limited trigger distances.

I can rip my Adrenaline CONSIDERABLY faster than I can my stock CVO.

Edited to add: I’m talking in game streams and not sitting in the backyard fanning the trigger. While the distance that the valve opens for both markers is almost identical, the Adrenaline offers a smoother, more customizable trigger than the stock CVO. The stock trigger is gritty, while the Adrenaline has been polished and is butter.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
