Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
Hybrid detents are hands down the best detents on the market for your Shocker, Impulse, or Nerve. Rather than a rolling ball design, they use a piston that is adjustable for tension so you can set your detents for the paint you shoot.
Product Availability 
The Hybrid Technologies Shocker Detents are older, so while they may be available used and in a few cases new, they are not commonly available anymore.

Products Used:
New Designz detents
Marker Setup: Shocker SFT / Turbocharger HE kit, Q-lock neck, Sidewinder regulator, CCM Carbon barrel Kit, Evil LPR, and of course Hybrid Detents
Strengths: Nicely machined and anodized. Stainless, Delrin and aluminum - Nice!
Weaknesses: Grub screws expand delrin detent causing it to stick.
Review: I bought these the other day at the local paintball shop, and was anxious to get them home and onto one of my Shockers. Gassed up the gun a couple days later to prep for a weekend of play, and it wouldn't shoot... Hmmm... The bolt wasn't coming fully forward, and I'd get that standard pffff...pffff....pffff shocker / solenoid noise. When this has happened in the past, it meant that the internals needed cleaning. So that's what I did. No go... to make a long story short, the bolt was stopping on the new Hybrid detents. They were adjusted properly, however, the stainless steel grub screw that sets the depth of the detent, when screwed in, causes the delrin detent to expand into the aluminum body. I figured that they may be a little oversized, and when I purchased new screws - same deal...

In the end, I took a Dremel, and knocked off a little of the threading on the grub screw - et voila! worked perfectly. Gun began shooting again ...

Once the set screw thing was sorted out (after much head scratching), the installation was nice and smooth. The hybrid detents thread into the body well, and lock in place with an o'ring. They look great on the marker, and when you fire, you can, if your not looking at your target, watch them piston in and out...

They appear to be very easy to clean, as I conducted a full disassembly to sort out the sticking issue. If I can suggest a more elaborate set of instructions (more than the 4 lines on the back of the packaging) it'd be easier to set up.
Conclusion: After the issues were resolved, the product worked exactly as described. I'd buy another set - perhaps for my Nerve or Ton Ton... Time will tell, and budget will decide. In terms of a rating, I'll give em an 8 for now, due to the fact that I had to diagnose the issue in order to make them function, and allow the marker to fire again.
