got it tuned at wapred sportz
well i had every upgrade and it still shot like crap
Strengths: Fast(but half the time you chop)
light(there are lighter guns now)
Weaknesses: Choped about every 50th ball at least
just read the review

Review: OK where do I start
I have about every upgrade that you can buy for the shocker.
These are the problems i had

1. Choped alot. i had it tuned. didnt help. i put new dedents in it. didnt help(YES i had new eyes) Also i was using a HALO B with rip at the time

2. unaccurate. balls swerve and a rope isnt that effective

3. Trigger frame. I dont have huge hands or fingers but the trigger frame on shockers are just way to small.

4. Reg. The stock maxflow is ok but im not talking about that. The reg is so close to the trigger frame that you have to hold the reg at the bottom-middish part if the reg or grab the barrel.

I was looking forward to having a really nice shocker. I wanted it to be my gun for a long time but i hated it. I used it for about a month until i had it with the gun. sold it for 525 to get it away from me.

I just got back from the field today. My Angel ONE is on its way but i wanted to play. So i grabed my bros ion. I was suprised. 2 chops all day.
Conclusion: i would not recommend a SHOCKER AT ALL. I wanted to love my shocker but it just sucked. A PM6 or 05 ego is now the same price as uped shockers. Get one of those or if ya have the money get the Angel one.
3 out of 10

Did it chop with the stock freak barrell? I bought a stiffi barrell for my freeflow too, and was dissapointed. I found that with any paint i put through it (I used diablo rainbow, midnight, xball bronze and xball silver) whenever the seem of the ball was allighned with the sides of the barrell, it need to be pushed a LOT harder to get through the first 1/8 inch of the barrell, so every 50 or so it would chop, and was never very accurate. I used a .689 boresize, but when i used my freak .689, it worked absolutely perfect (with the same kinds of paint above) so i dont think it was the bore size. Also, the ball only stuck for like 1/8 inch, so i dont think it was the bore size.

a person on my team used this gun and it was amazing. even when it chopped it did not affect the accuracy.

when yur complaining about it, it sounds like yur dissing shockers in general, not just the free flow. I have a 06 shocker SFT and granted the efficiency is horrible when its stock, but i now have a new designs stinger bolt, and my efficiency is through the roof. Thats all a shocker needs my opinion. So i would re-word parts of yur review, since it sounds like yur dissing shockers in general.
