looks cheap, the body and forgrip are all one piece of aluminum

I agree with martix, it sounds like its just draining that tank

why does this have the SP name on it? I thought SP as a company was no more, Im assuming the G brothers are behind this but why not put it under the Gog name?

GOG = Low End.
DLX = High End
Shocker Paintball (neee Smart Parts) = mid-range.

so this is supposed to be a mid range? is it still a balanced lpr-less spool?

If so they are also trying to sell it at $800ish as well

Why cant the gardner brothers just die and leave paintball alone already?

bolt pics make it look Ion-based. Unbalanced blowforward spool.

and they don't get my dollars.

Many drivetrains are similar to the Ion. Demon, Geo, Drone all have a drivetrain that's very similar to the Ion. It wasn't a bad concept, just a bad implementation. Very few markers shoot overall better than the Demon IMO.

It's getting hype only because it's called a shocker. I imagien if this was put out under any other name, people would be picking it apart.

I will say that the ION system was pretty dang reliable. for $800, i'd prefer not to see a fancy ION, though.

O for sure, if say azodin rolled this out it would be laughed at to no end, I was going to say PE but then I remembered they have enough fan boys that they might actually be able to turn a profit on it

See and this is the thing that blows my mind, the G brothers have not produced anything new for what? like a decade now and yet they continue to stay relevant even though the educated paintballer is still pissed at them for what they did to the sport. Its all the people who one day are like "Dont buy smart parts!" and then the next the G brothers go, "hey, we made this "new" marker its shinny" and the players change their minds, as if making another marker somehow erases the past and giving the G brothers another chance is now somehow an acceptable risk simply because they made something "new"

O, if anyone was wondering, I dug around a little, this is not under the smart parts name but rather "SP paintball" they lost smart parts but kept the initials it seems

That's why the title of this thread is "Shocker Sports" Because that's the name of the company that this gun is from. Smart-parts still exists, but they are the organization who owns GOG, DLX, and Shocker Sports.

but they lost the smart parts name when the company went bankrupt so how does that work?

I understand that the website address is still "smart parts" but this is also a non-us company, did they only loose the smart parts name of the US based portion of the company?

Sounds weird.

Wouldn't buy one even if I had the money.

Poll: what would you rather have, The SP Shocker or The DP Fusion Elite?

i'm unclear on the legal particulars regarding the ownership of the 'smart parts' name post bankruptcy, but it would appear that they do not possess the rights to it, thus "SP" as "shocker paintball."

don't know why $800 would be a startling price tag for an unbalanced spool. Bob's, PE's and a handful of others are quite popular.

Shocker no doubt. At least G brothers markers have a tendency to function, so therefore better than DP.

are you talking like the NXT shocker which can no longer be purchased new and therefore no money would be going to the G brothers or this shocker which the money would be?

really neither but the fusion and just turn around and sell it

martix-this is going to take some getting used to, now every time i want to quote someone I end up pushing the edit button, hence why instagraham now has an "edited by trbo" thing at the bottom

Im talking about the new one.
Good plan though. You'd make like 50 bucks max though even if you resold it.
