This ASA LPR mount allows u to use an LPR on your 03 Shoker. Which means that your marker will be running off of less pressure, saving you alot of air. This LPR mount comes in many colors to match your gun. If you dont want your Shocker to keep sucking all the air out of your tank then i recommend the LPR mount.
The Evolve Paintball 03 Shocker ASA LPR mount is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
It allows you to use an LPR...if it would only work, i'll explain
It doesn't work...it continues to leak thus bypassing the LPR all together
At first I thought,'wow a way to install an LPR on my shocker to help prevent solenoid damage from those nasty spikes the new vert max flo's are notorious for.' After all evolve made some bad a$$ products for my matrix, i.e. the bolt kit.
So i purchased the adapter, a Mini MaxFlo LPR and proceeded with the installation. At first it aired up just fine, 15 seconds later the LPR gauge started creeping up to the same input as the HPR gauge, every time...what gives. I find out that I am not the only one having this problem, and there apparently is no fix to this.
Although some markers are not experiencing this problem, no one can determine the reason for this. Evolve is 'looking into this' and even 'testing a gasket' that could fix this problem. Yet we wait for its release. and wait, and wait...
Good idea, poor design! And no help yet. Save your money and wait for the problem to solved, or try the New Desingz lpr adapter.
I have not used any similar shocker products. The only other that I'm aware of is the PMI Evil version.

Shocker only capable of cycling slightly below its needed input pressure
I've used a shocker for some time without an LPR, but have owned plenty of guns that incorporate LPRs as part of their design.
I found one for cheap so I gave it a shot. Installed easily with no leaks and no problems.
Now the idea of an LPR really isn't to improve efficiency, thats hogwash. The idea is to reduce the pressure used to cycle the bolt back and forth. Less bolt pressure can reduce gun kick and increase accuracy slightly because of that. It also reduce slightly the chance of paint chopping. Noticed I used the word slightly to describe both of those hoped for improvements.
The problem with the Evolve ASA isn't the Evolve LPR ASA, its that the shocker needs almost all the input pressure to cycle the bolt. A lot of other guns like the DM4/5/6 , Timmy, cocker, angel, etc can cycle at significantly lower bolt pressure (50-100psi) than the psi they use to shoot the ball, not the shocker. Below about 150psi the shocker bolt won't even cycle.
Not enough of a difference in pressure to really justify this thing. The pressure needed to cycle a shocker will differ from bolt kit to bolt kit. The Hi-Efficiency bolt from Smart Parts is above average for smooth cycling so it should have been pretty easy to use lower cycle psi. The stock kit and certainly the Freeflow might be even more pointless because they are stiffer to move back and forth.
Its a serviceable ASA that would also give you guage ports, buts its main job is negated by the pressure needed by the shocker to cycle.
Nice idea, proven in other guns. Just doesn't work in this one.
I hate to give it a low product rating because it isn't flawed in its production, its just that the concept fails on this gun and thats not entirely Evolve Paintball's fault.
03 shocker, satin red with flames! evolve LPR and an HE bolt kit that doesnt work.
doesnt help at all.
It looks nice on the gun, but as for performance, I recommend people not to get it. It doesnt help with efficiency, and its just one more thing to adjust and one more thing to break. But the Adaptor works with the LPR, its just the fact that 03 shockers dont need the LPR. I havent found anything positive about the adapter and LPR other than it looks nicer.
The product works, but just isnt necessary for the gun.
