Products Used:
Vengence Cocker, Orracle, Bonebrake Bushmaster, Strange Impulse,
Marker Setup: Red 2004 Strange Shocker, 68/4500, red Halo B w/rip drive, Checkit on/off, Smartparts mini drop, CCM clamping feed neck, shocker bolt kit, CP vertical reg. with gauge port, stainless Freak inserts, stainless steel Freak back.
stainless Freak inserts, CCM neck, efficency bolt kit, CP vertical reg.
Strengths: Very Very fast, very accurate, very light, small, sweet milling, did I say FAST?
Weaknesses: Stock vertical reg., I recomend a CP with gauge port, kind of air hoggish.
Review: I finally am sitting down to write a quick note about my new toy. I wrote a review on my Strange Impy and now am writting one on my new Strange Shocker. First off, junk the vertical reg that comes stock with the gun. The stock reg works ok for slow shooting but once the pace really picks up, the reg cuts out.. I don't think that Smart Parts has got all of the bugs worked out of their new Max-Flo yet.. As I said above, get a CP reg. with a gauge port. The gauge obviously makes dialing the imput pressure a breeze while the reg lets the gun breathe much easier with NO shoot down. Next get the bolt kit to boost air efficeincy. The body on the Strange is soooooooooooooooo sexy with all of the Strange swirls cut out. The red is too sweet for words and the double finger trigger lets you rip paint out like a bad mofo. This gun will control lanes no sweat and you will be mowing down the field from one side to the other. I have a couple of friends with Vikings and DM4's and they can't believe how fast I can rip this gun. Seriously I can hit around 18-20 bps no problem and can maintain it until my Halo is empty. It all is in the trigger. Take magnet out and tweak the trigger to your liking and once you get it right you will be rewarded with a mad fast gun!
Conclusion: I highly recommend the "Signature" series shockers since they stand out form the stock ones. Sure you pay a little more, but iff you buying a high end marker you might as well go for the best. You pay about $1050.00 for the gun but when you put on a decent reg. and the bolt kit you are still under the asking price of a DM4 or Timmy. If you have the money and can afford the upgrades, BUY THIS GUN! The only reason I didn't give it a 10 was because of the crappy stock Max-Flo and it's hungry appetite for air. All in all, my Strange Shocker & Strange Impulse are the best purchases that I have made in paintball and I have made alot of them. Peace out.
9 out of 10

20 bps isn't that awesome, my a-5 can make 15, easy, and my dark angel g7 fly can shoot ropes at 30+, so you should reconsider if that is the main reason you gave the gun such a high rating.
