Review: Well before I had my shocker I used my ion that was maxed out with a virtue board, cp reg, and everything and let me tell you there is no comparison. My shocker is so far the best gun I've shot other than a DM8.

ACCURACY- This gun is by far the most accurate gun I have ever shot before. I have shot an ego 07 before for a couple games and it was a very close call but even the owner said he would straight up trade gun for gun. When i was out on the field messing around shooting the polls that held the netting up, it was literally shooting ball on top of ball from a good 15 or so yards away. I called my friend to watch and when he saw it he couldnt tell what i was shooting because it was just one yellow dot on the pole. Also very consistent accuracy too, never an odd ball shot.

WEIGHT- Very light weight gun, I would say a little lighter an ion. I have no problem walking the trigger with one hand holding the gun.

SPEED- The speed on this gun is fanominal, I do have the virtue board and a new regulator on it and havent shot it without it, but in my experience this gun RIPS. I mean this thing is meant for laning, it shoots ropes.

RELIABILITY- So far for the past 5 months I have had this gun it has never screwed up or broken down on me, with the proper lube of course. Plain and simple as that.

BALL CHOPPING- This gun has almost never broken a ball on me, every practice I shoot about a case a day on normal days. With that 2000 balls I would have to say I only break one or two balls, and that is even when I lane straight ropes with it. This time I decided to test out the gun on ball chopping and I put it on psp uncapped and it didnt chop a ball once. The only time this gun would chop is if your hopper feeds it slow or in a strange way.

Now for the bad part.

AIR EFFICIENCY- No matter how much I love this gun, I cannot stand the air usage of this shocker. When I go out to practice, i get about a hopper and 3 pods maybe a little more or less but that is the average, and I have a 45/45 tank and fill it full. Even though it is very consistent with air it runs out way to fast. Maybe I need to tweek it a little to help that out, and I would be very open to some options or help that I dont know about.

Conclusion: Very good gun, very reliable, and very accurate. If it held air better I couldnt consider any better gun for the money they are, which you can find for about $650.
