Review: Being a store owner I have many guns available to me. The fact that I have chosen the 2006 Dynasty Shocker as my personal marker for tournament use must mean something.

When the gun arrived in the mail, I must say I was excited. I opened the box and naturally aired it up. I took it to the chronograph and started to unload. I soon realized that it came set on some sort of crazy ramp mode on the nerve board. This allowed me to see its true speed. I was very impressed with the consistency and accuracy out of the box as well. Unfortunately the efficiency was not so great, as I had to refill my tank after shooting only two bags of paint through the marker.

When I first picked it up I was a little dissapointed with the weight of the marker, after shooting Egos for the past 3 months or so. When I eventually aired it up to shoot it though I realized that it was extremely comfortable and with a full setup was extremely manueverable.

The milling on the gun is beautiful, however I am not a fan of the Dynasty Emblems. They seem to peel of quite easily, but other than that they are not a problem. The sleeve on top of the gun caught my eye and I thought it was a unique and attractive. The annodizing is very good looking as well, however I have had problems in the past with fading annoes, yet hopefully that won't hold true to this beautiful marker.

When I went to throw on some upgrades, the first thing I did was throw on a new on/off. My least favorite feature of any shocker is the stock on/off. It literally grinds the tank threads and is difficult to use. I put on a CP, one of my personal favorites. I also found the stock grips to be a little large so I threw on some hybrids, and I liked the look of the Hybrid Bolt Guide on it as well so I put one of those as well.

After having used this marker a few times in games, it has left me with absolutely no problems. It has performed wonderfully at my past 2 X-Ball practices where I have put a lot of paint through it.

Maintenance of this marker has not been difficult for me at all as I have owned shockers in the past, however I must say that it can be difficult for first-timers. It is easy to get used to but the bolt system is a little tricky. Definitely not a problem.
Conclusion: In my mind this marker is one of the best overall. I wouldn't even say that it is the best in any given category as far as speed, weight, and accuracy, HOWEVER, I think that its strength throughout various categories makes it one of the best markers on the market to this day. I would most definitely reccomend this marker to any tournament player today. Because of its overall strength compared to other markers available today, I give it a rating of a perfect 10. There is no marker that I would personally rather be shooting than this one.
Rating:
10 out of 10
