Nerve vs. Shocker

this is a hard question. I currently have an ION and i am wondering if I would be better off getting the Nerve or Shocker. More people have Shockers over the Nerves but in some ways the Nerve would seem to be better. and Im talking about the ones with vision. so if anyone can please help me with these questions that would be nice! thank you.

Personally I think the nerve is better than the shocker. The Nerve doesn't have as many upgrades. although it requires less maintence, is mostly already upgraded, and comes stock with ramping capabilities. Then the bps is higher stock. so put a virtue in either of them and the Nerve would most likly come out with a higher bps. Then there is the fact that nerve's are now running for $475. That just tips the tide even more in favor of the Nerve. Although preference should have a huge part in your final decision too. Do you like small and light with a big price tag ,or average size high rate of fire, and average weight, for low price tag.

The only matience difference in a shocekr and a nerve is th enerve bolt is easier to take out
you still have th esame solniod/stock reg to clean

hands down nerve is better for the money

But in the long run a shocker is going to be better than a nerve
Nerve efficany is 1200
HE bolt shocker is at least 1400

Btw nerve bps is teh same as a shocker bps stock
both of them come with teh 20 bps capped nerve board

I can get my shocker to cycle 35 cps that is plenty fast for anyone
Even if the nerve is faster, When are you going to use that?

Ur obviously very stupid. The stock nerve is capped at +25bps. The shocker is +20bps. As for efficiency the nerve is way more efficient than a shocker and if you wanna argue about that come to Cross fire Creek and we will prove it 2 u. As for firepower the shocker can cycle that fast, but the nerve can actually shoot that fast after a few ungrades like a board for uncapped fire, the same thing u would need for a shocker.

Shockers can shoot 33bps. The Shockers and Nerves have the same stock board, at least I'm pretty sure on that. Plus the shocker is smaller.

Thats only recently then, that the shockers come with nerve boards, but while im at it, can u get your shocker 2 go any faster? My nerve goes over 33bps with the virtue on it. Fast enough 2 force me to continue looking for a faster hopper. Expecially since it burns the motor up in my halo. How is it possible to have a shocker with nerve board at 33bps when the nerve board is capped at about 25....

No hoppers as of yet can fire that fast and really, anyhting over 15bps is just bragging rights. I'm pretty sure the 2k5 shockers came with the nerve boards, I would think the 2k6 ones would too. But seriously a shocker + HE bolt is better.

Thats nice try a halo with neophean batteries, and a victory board. It should get you in the area of 35bps. But you are right anything over 15bps is bragging rights. Not really a need unless you just sux, and can't hit people. Although comparing nerve 2 shocker the shocker is more expensive than the nerve, and it may be able to shoot faster stock, although the nerve board is capped at 25bps so i don't c how. The shocker is smaller and lighter although as i said b4 it requires more maintenence.

I'm not sure where 2 get them online but they are rechargable batteries that cost around $100 that are supposed 2 boost the power into the motor, and they are supposed 2 last through 100 cases, with a lifetime warranty. I got 2 use one during the testing of my nerve when i first got it at the field i ref at. I want 2 get one but they are really expensive.

As for Greg113 the nerve is very different from an impulse and you shouldn't even compare them. The nerve is only similiar in that of they are near the same size and same technology. the nerve has a better board, different internals, stock vision, the same price, better looking, stock freak, etc... Basicly it can only be compared to an impulse by saying the nerve is better than one.

What i meant was the opperation and the internals are the same. Everything else you said was the spiffy part.

Lol
nerve board is capped at 24 bps semi fyi( doubt you can pull that )
i just say 20 becasue that is what it is capped at with ramping
http://www.zdspb.com/tech/skr03/upgrades/boards.html

It doesnt matter what batteries you put in a halo
a halo will never be very consisant over 25-30 bps

IF you want a fast loader

get a qloader adn some reballs,
will feed consisnatnly and you can wind it even tighter to feed faster tahn 30 bps since the reballs can't burst


also fyi
Q: What kind of efficiency can I expect from the Nerve?
A: The Nerve gets average efficiency rates of around 1100-1200 or more shots from a 68/4500 HPA tank. Efficiency can be increased with soem of the NDZ upgrades but not by too much. (http://www.zdspb.com/tech/nrv/faq.html)

Shocker efficany 1400+
(http://www.zdspb.com/tech/skr03/upgrades/boltkits.html)

I can see if i can upload a video of my shocker cycling 35 cps... tommorrow

"The board is electronically capped at 24-bps with Vision enabled, and also includes a ramping mode which will accellerate your fire rate as high as you have it set if desired." main point ramping as high as it is set. As for efficiency, the nerve is supposed to get 1100-1200 shots while a shocker is supposed 2 get 700-800 shots from the same size tank as 68/45. As is said at multiple paintball websites and its not said under bolts and upgrades as where equipementcounts found his information, which was stating some bolt kits claim that efficiency.
