When it comes to performance everyone knows that at NDZ we don't mess around. These plates offer the highest flow over any other plate on the market, and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the difference. Not only that, you can say good-bye to stripping your stock aluminum plate.
Large exhaust ports to help reduce first shot drop
Ball radiused and angled air passages for the highest possible flow with minimal restriction
Permanently engraved for positive identification, as we all aren't extreme paintball techies
We can only describe these plates as "sweet".
The New Designz Nerve SST Ported Manifold Plate is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Hybrid Lady Grips
Ton Ton Grip Frame
NDZ Equalizer Bolt
NDZ Roller Blade Trigger
SST Ported Manifold
Eliminates FSDO (First Shot Drop Off).
Doesn't include new o-rings.
Won't kiss you goodnight.
I usually make my reviews long, but in this case there is no reason. If you've ever experienced first shot drop off with your Nerve (I only experienced a tiny amount), then getting this manifold will eliminate it completely. I had done a huge upgrade on my gun, so it's hard for me to point out specifics. My air efficiency increased, but I don't really know if this caused it because I replaced a lot of parts.
One problem I had was really my fault (because I was excited to get this in). My previous manifold had o-rings in all the appropriate place, but I just took it out and threw it aside and threw this one in. Since this one comes with no o-rings (personally I think NDZs could have included some just in case a previous one had broken), I aired the gun up and it was leaking right above the trigger. But I easily guessed the problem, took my gun back apart and put all the o-rings into the appropriate places. Works like a charm now.
This manifold does it's job. There really isn't much more to say. If you've ever had a disadvantage because you and some other guy see each other at the same time, and he gets the higher ground because his first shot zooms by your head (causing you to duck) and yours plops down 2 feet in front of him (causing him to laugh), then get this manifold and shoot that laugh into eternal hellfire.
Make sure you take the manifold o-rings out of your previous manifold and place them into this one. Also, the manifold goes on with the Nerve logo facing down (I think it would have been cooler to have it facing up), so make sure you don't screw that up. Happy shooting.

Easy to install, eliminates FSDO, very strong
Okay, when I opened up the manifold in the mail, I could not believe how small it was. It looks a lot bigger in the pictures, but to be honest, it's quite small. I opened it up, cracked open the nerve and installed it.
when you install this manifold, do NOT forget to take out the orings in the stock manifold, otherwise it will leak.
Just comparing the two manifolds, it is easy to see that the aftermarket one is more durable. Not only does it eliminate FSDO, but it won't strip like the stock manifold will.
If you are a tournament player then buy this, but if you are just gonna play woodsball or play around in your backyard, then its not really worth it to you.
Screws were hard to screw, I thought the threads were mest up
I bought this for my nerve and I installed it very easy the only thing was that the scews that go into it were very hard to tighten and I had them loose and shot with it and it leaked b/c it wasnt tight enough but that was only my fault
Not a huge difference but somewhat, and Its just nice to know that you have it to help with air, and it is NDZ which is a good company.
