Question Shocker VS Impulse

I am looking to buy a new marker and I would like to get either a Smart Parts Shocker or Impulse. I play midman for my team and i cannot decide to get. What should i get? (and also what upgrades would be the most helpful for the marker your choose) Thanks in advance.

the shocker is better than most of the impulses, unless u buy the new ShockTech imp, tha thing is way better well not way bette than the shocker but if u got $1250 then buy that.

The new Shockers have a much different feel from Imps. It's shooter's preference, try shooting both and decide.

Unhappy

i have around 400$ to spend (i usually buy these in packages off eBay cuz im cheap- last gun was a Shocker Sport Turbo w/ maxflo n new, better, hose for 350) and as far as being able to test guns goes- i live in a very antipaintball area and my nearest paintball retail store is 40 mins away and they only have begginers spyders n tippmans- i have nowhere to test the shocker or impy unless i happen to find someone at the field closest to me who has one (very unlikely)

If you mean the old shockers, get the impy. If you mean the new shockers, choose. I usually play mid, and I use an impy, but some people prefer the shocker. Give us a budget-range, and we can help you decide (ex, a mid-to-high end impy costs about the same as a mid-to-low end shocker) and such. If you get an imp, blade it but don't WAS it. Sounds like you couldn't get the eye-hole drilled where you live, and the cost of WAS ontop of vision is quite a lot.
