Meh. Were there any not made from garbage-grade aluminum and with abysmal trigger geometry?

The naughty dog was a simple but one of my favorite nxt shocker bodies
I always wanted a shocktech or a hybrid nxt shocker or a dark sft shocker

The biggest seller for me of the Naughty Dogs was the fact that it had real barrel threading. That said im quite happy with it, never had issues with it that weren't caused by me (usually accidentally grabbing an 8.4v battery instead of 9.6v).

For me it just comes down to ive been waiting 2 years for him to release it, so at this point i could care less anymore. That said, depending on what my bonus looks like in a couple months, i may pick one up.

Yea the threads were a big thing for me with my octane sft and i really like the round type body
The octane with the pooty bolt is extremely smooth i would trade it for the demon i had if it was more effiecient, had a oled and the parts were newer and still being made

oh lets look into that shall we

granted a lot of this is personal opinion but it is also a personal opinion of a lot of people out there

1) it was made by the gardner brothers, and in fact the name "shocker" did not even come from SP, they ripped it off from pnuadventures when they stabbed them in the back

2) trigger geometry is crap due to the rotation point being in front of the trigger face

3) in the never ending pursuit of "low pressure = greater accuracy" which, btw is complete crap, they designed a balanced spool without an LPR which results in extremely crappy efficiency and had the marker been lighter more kick than other comparable spools while also allowing less tuning options to the user
