The Shocker SFT is the sport of paintball's first marriage of technologies. The Shocker SFT provides the high rate of fire and simplicity of design found in most open bolt markers yet has the incredible accuracy and razor flat trajectory heralded in closed bolt markers. With rates of fire far capable of surpassing 20 balls per second, the SFT is more than able to excel in any environment without ever letting its user feel outgunned. Its weight and size make it the smallest and lightest tournament dominance package made. Already a proven winner by the Philadelphia Americans, this marker is appearing in the hands of more and more top level teams every day.
The Smart Parts Shocker SFT is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
very little kick
ramping is fun
stock trigger is not the greatest
This gun is fantastic. Very light, accurate, and fast. The nerve board allows me to shoot even faster with the built in ramping modes which are tourny illegal but fun to play with anyways. Some people say the effeciency is horrible and you only get 2 pods and a hopper out of it and they are retarded. The effeciency is worse than normal, but it's not as horrible as everyone makes it out ot be. I get about 950 shots off my 68/4500 tank on stock settings. That's nto good, but it's really not that bad either. The trigger is a little thin for my taste but it's not a huge deal. Overall it's a great gun.
For $800 this is the best gun out there. I wanted a high end gun without spending too much and I got exectly what I was looking for. I would take this any day over a proto matrix and I just don't like the feel of the 05 speeds. Personally I just think this gun feels perfect in my hands and that's what really matters in the end.
Didnt like the barrel
Vision is ok..
This is great for both front or back players. Its very small so you can maneuver pretty much any way you think of. Its very light as well, of course the halos still give it weight but its much lighter than anything out there. Very fast as well although i noticed with my vision on sometimes it would fire without a ball in the breach. This marker is a major gas hog though. I would get a new bolt, and since there's many out there that doesn't really matter. They should just sell it with their HE bolt. The only other thing i didn't like was the barrel. Just doesn't work out for me, and it was most likely the fields stupid paint. Also sometimes it takes getting used to not having a safety :p.
I would recommend this to anyone with the money. Might not be worth it though unless you play tourneys. If you do buy it get a new bolt and barrel, and dont forget a fast hopper :).

PRED 2 DROP IN BOARD!
HE bolt, get 100% more shots
Vision is awesome
Very very quiet
with the upgrades i have? NONE AT ALL
This gun is the greatest marker i have bought to date, ive had angel after angel, timmies. Nothing compares to the balance in weight that you get with this gun. I got a red one and the ano couldn't have been more perfect. The maxflo works great at keeping it at 190psi input. I have made this gun very very quiet and with a low dwell of only 15 chirps, i still can shoot 285 fps. As long as you get the HE bolt, or any other upgrade bolt, you will get about 1500 shots froma 68/4500. Geez I love this gun so much, might buy another private label one, gotta love the TonTon shocker
I would recommend this shocker is you tried of chopping balls and lugging around the weight of other guns, such a good gun for its price. i bought mine for only 600 bucks with the He bolt.
03 SFT shocker
vert reg adapter W/ gauge
CP clamping feed neck
stainless freak back AA front
dye sticky 3 grips
halo B W/ rip drive
clamping feed neck
maybe a freak back
stock feed neck won't fit halo B
no input gauge
well, first off let me say that I've owned or shot just about every high end marker on the market and I was tired of dumping hundreds of dollars on ups for them. So I decided to get one last gun and I wanted it to get ready to rip right out of the box. The new SFT shockers even look fast so I knew this thing was gonna be just what I wanted. The pics you see online aren't even close to the effect it has when you actully hold one. The design in my opinion is flawless with its much smaller size and weight. exactly 1.4 LBS.
Like I said earlier I didn't want to buy many ups and thats exaclty what I got everything I needed was already stock. the only thing that is a must is a clamping feed neck. also, the air efficency isn't as bad a most people say they just haven't read there manual or don't know how to adjust their dwell and recharge rates yet. I can get about 1200 shots out of a 68/3000 and thats pretty good I think. the only things that could be improved is the anno job with is very easily scratched and it could come with a input pressure gauge so you can know what ur running at so you don't blow ur noid.
Overall, its the best bang for ur buck, there isn't anything that needs to uped but the feed neck. if you want a dependable marker out of the box and want it ready to rip this is the only way to go.
Accurate (awww you know it)
Fast (in a tournament perspective)
Bit of a gas hog without new bolt
I was choosing between an Angel Ir3 Fly, an LCD Matrix, an E-bladed Autocoker, or an 03 Shocker, and mark my words I did not regret my decision. As far as accuracy, it can keep up with the matrix (which is basically a double stacked shocker) and the E-cocker and as far as speed, in a one pull one shot setup (which is all they allow in tournaments) it could still keep up with the angel and matrix. If you're thinking of getting an ICD freestyle I have to admit they both offer the same performance but at the cost of even less air efficiency.
Ideal for all tournament players (Front Mid and Back) who want speed and accuracy in a light compact setup. Not too bad for the rec ball players out there either.
03 Vison Shocker w/ Maxflow(dont have it any more)
Blue 04 Angel Speed
2 Piece CP Barrel
CCM clamping Feedneck
Dirty Works Volumnizer
New Bolt Kit, Dynasty Board
Not that accurate
TONS OF First Shot Drop Off
I bought a 03 vision shocker from a friend. I got the gun and was impressed by its speed. And even though i had vision i still had chop. The accuracy wasnt good either. I also had a few problems and only had the gun a few months. I then traded the shocker for an 04 angel speed. I feel that the speed is alot better than the shocker.
Overall, the marker was OK. A Angel speed would be a better choice to go with.

I would get an eye if one is not owned already. Clamp feed neck. Dynasty board. New barrel. HE kit.
Fast, light, small
Air hog, not very accurate, no imput pressure guage, one ball drop off.
My friend has a sft shocker. He let me use it once and this is what I have to say. It is a VERY light and small gun. Even lighter than my Freestyle. Size is very similer though (mine is smaller.)This gun is an air hog just like mine so I would recamend a HE kit. This gun sucks without an eye so buy one. The accuracy is okay but I would purchase a freak kit or a dye ultralite barrel system. The one ball drop off sucks. Really sucks that it doesn't have an imput pressure guage.
Overall this is a very good gun. A lot of upgrades are needed to reach its full potential. But this rating is on a STOCK shocker w/ no eye. If you want to skip a few of those upgrades I would get a Freestyle. It has clamp feed, and an eye. But if you just want a shocker It is a very good gun to get.

I shot a lot of guns, but I haven't shot anything like a Shocker. Well, I kind of did. The Shocker is a lot different than its heavier and crazy bulkier older sister. It fires fast and straight right out of the box. I like the weight. It makes a big difference when you are playing as a back player like myself hauling about 10 pods or more per game. I fired a Matrix and as the game went on, the Matrix got pretty heavy. The Shocker I got already had a upgraded FREAK barrel system and a MACDEV reg. I don't care what other people say about MACDEV regs, the thing kept me within -4/+4 at the CHRONO station.
Becareful with the internals. Always keep them lubed and clean. Also, keep the eye clean. I had some crazy hesitation from the gun because I broke a ball in the barrel or chamber and some of it latched onto the eye causing major problems.
Get a fash hopper. A Reloader B or Halo would be fine. I ended up upgrading the stock board and got myself a Dynasty B board. Now, the thing has some crazy rates of fire cutting down any brave front player trying for a mid field bunker.
As for the gun being a gas hog....I got the gun loaded with an HE bolt, but I still have problems getting this gun to sip the gas and not guzzle it. But, I will be working on that some more.
Crisp shooting, great accuracy and nice weight. Get this!

i tested a shocker vision stock
freak back and inserts, evolve bolt
Fast, small, light, vision
Still abit of an air hog, vision has problem detecting, dark paint
When i went to the local field, my friend was using a shocker. After we played a couple of games we decided to switch guns, man tis thing is awesome. its so fast.we did like a 2 on eight and this gun totally dominated the field. the stock trigger pull is very little and light and there is still room for adjustment. its just awesome how a gun so small can work so good. it is a bit of an air hog, a whole lot less than the old shocker but still a bit of an air hog but that doesn't really matter cuz by the time u run out of air, you would have shot every body already. Besides, thats whay there is all day air. The shocker has revolutionized paintball. For the price it is, it can compete against timmys and stuff for a lot less money.
Buy the shocker if you want a high end gun for a great price
Impulse, 91 shocker (that thing was major anal), the 03 shocker is lighter faster and more accurate
Vision shocker, ccm no rise, rip trigger HE bolt, halo b with rip drive and victory board
Rip trigger until the techna trigger comes out, Freak back and inserts or a stiffi, HE bolt or evolve
Fast, crazy fast, great gun for speed ball because of size, accuracy and quiet
every1 wants to shoot it or hold it
The shocker is a great gun for a good price and is easy to upgrade. It is also easy to fieldstrip. You should have at least one year of experience to buy this gun cause there is no reason to buy it if you cant play. Well this is my review.
It is cheap, accurate, fast, small and quiet
