Review: I got my sft shocker from my coach and first used it at NPPL. I then realized (while getting ready for a game) that the stock feed neck would not fit my Empire hopper... so i quickly grabbed a smart parts q-lock out of my bag and put it on. To my surprise, it shot amazing right out of the box in a national event. The only thing i noticed was the consistency was really bad like +/- 15. Also, the air is used up really fast, its a real gas hog. I highly recommend an EVOLVE or HE bolt which i will be getting soon. Its not that big of a deal because i can get 4 pods and a hopper off a 68/45 fill stock, but you cant carry any more than that. So after a couple of weeks i got a cp reg which worked PERFECTLY (waaaaayyy better than vert. max-flo). At about the same time i got a cp roller trigger, and man, this thing RIPPED. I also put on a sys-x unimount because i HATE that stock drop foward... i really dont know what smart parts was thinking with that thing. After a couple months i upgraded. I got a freak 06 back. It then shot straight ropes combined with the ramping on the stock board (nerve board). Within this time, the only pain was the ball detents. I experienced the balls popping out in mid-game (i figured this out when i took my gun apart). GET BETTER BALL DETENTS. The smart parts detents will make your life and wallet miserable. I chose the hybrid detents. After this, it shot PERFECTLY. I couldnt ask for a better gun. It never fails me, and always shoots straight.
Conclusion: This is one awesome gun. I will never use anything else until maybe sometime FAR in the future. My shocker has never failed me once i put in the necessary upgrades. I see people having gun problems all the time and i see them complain. But with my shocker, i never have any problems, and it always pwns faces. GET A SHOCKER... it will change your paintball life. I gave this product a 9/10 because of all the upgrading you have to do to it to make it shoot like a dream.
