(I have the magnet pulled out about six rotations and the t.a.p. in further, I also had the micro switch soldered the other way, making the trigger bouncy, light making the gun easy to rip on)

A-NEW-REG, the new mini maxxys just don't do well on the new shockers (regular or toxic or whatever). They aren't able to keep up and often the o-rings blow. This happened 2 me twice till I finally got sick of replacing O-rings and I bought a hybrid regulator which is working perfectly. Also, a teammate just bought a 03 shocker sft and his mini maxxy just blew its rings. He also has switched to a hybrid r drive and it is shooting like it should now. If you look @ most of the new shockers, people will either have hybrid, cp, torpedo or check it regs. HOWEVER, in two cases (one being a teammate and one being a shop worker, the mini maxxy worked great with the impulse)

All in all, the ToXic Shocker proved to be an excellent gat. I have shot many markers and the shocker remains my favorite. I'm a front player and the lightness of this marker REALLY makes a difference. I think less about pulling the gat around and 100% on my game. The tightness allows you to snap shoot and squeeze into those bunkers when needed. The speed is excellent. It is incredibly fast (especiall w/ mods). Like I said, the dm4, tadao'd dm3's and newer timmies easily beat it in speed, but the shocker EASILY makes up for it with its portability and it's not like it shoots slow. It shoots very fast still. Also, it is accurate within I'd say a 5 inch radius and that's something a timmi cannot do. The milling on the ToXic is exceptional! This is why I fell in love with it and paid an extra $100. That's how addicting the fade and milling were. Like I said, the pic above gives no credit at all. Try to find a home made pic if you really want to see it's glory. The shocker's price was a little bit much and now after thinking about it, I sorta wish I would have just bought a regular shocker (the only diff is an AA barrel instead of a freak and diff milling). I like the Toxic's features better but I dunno if it was worth the extra $100. Also, the ToXic's (and all new shockers) regulator, the new mini max flo was pure crap and couldnt keep up with the marker without blowing up so I'd recommend switching it ASAP. Despite many rumors, the stock bolt is fine. I'm sure the evolve or ND bolts would be more air efficient but I'm not sure. So far, I've stuck w/ the stock al bolt. I would also keep the stock trigger as it may not look that great but is one of my personal favorite triggers out of all. I would choose it over an ND wave trigger as I've used one before. All in all, the ToXic Shocker was worth it. If your a person who wants 75% performance and 25% looks then I'd go with a regular Shocker.
*Light, Light, Light!!!!-(1.14 ounces stock w/o tank and hopper)
*Tight, Tight, Tight!!! -by this i mean u can REALLY tuck in with this marker, u can get right up to the bolt guard easily and it feels naturally, it is also easy to slide with, and easy to maneauver because of it's small size.
*Fast!- My shocker has had the micro switch flipped, the magnet pulled out and the t.a.p. in (read above for details) so its incredibly fast. But, I shot it for a few weeks just stock and it was still VERY fast. Not as fast as a dm4 or alias but right under them. It's def up there. Now that I worked on the trigger, I can barely keep up with the marker. (Be careful. If you solder the trigger, youll void the warranty, so if you screw sumthin up youll have to buy it yourself.)
*Sexy Milling-This is where the ToXic Shocker specifically stands out. Toxic performance did a GREAT job with the milling. The picture above does not give enough credit @ all. You have to see this thing from all angles in real life and you will fall in love. It's easily the best shocker milling I've seen besides maybe the Nasty Shocker. Like all Shockers, it is also easy to look down the marker, helping your aim.
*Price-The ToXic cost me $1150. I think Toxic Peformance added a little too much $ just for the custom milling and a freak set instead of an AA.
*The stock reg (mini max flo) sux.
*The Shocker is a gas hog (not too bad, but more so then other markers in it's class)
I'd recommend this gun to you if you play front for sure. It is also great for back. Whoever's hands it is in, it will DEFINETLY speed you up. I pride myself on being un biased. Having used many markers before, I would definetly say the Shocker is one of the best if not the best of them all. It just really has an all around package that most other guns lack.
Gat? You have got to be joking me right? Ya and you bought the toxic shocker because it sounds so agg and the extra $$$ spent was for the pure bling factor right? Gat? OMFG!!!
OK aside from that it sounds like a solid review... but gat!?!?!?!!!?!???!?!??!
Dude, it doesn't matter. You just ruined the credibility of this entire review over something so marginal. You're giving PbReview a bad name. Everyone should report this as an innapropriate dispute, this is horrendous. Yes, it was a mistake on his part. So PM him or comment, tell him to edit it, and get on with life. Don't ruin a long review because he made a mistake.
