Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
Precision C.N.C milled with the flowing, somewhat understated lines Shocktech is famous for. Not gaudy and busy, overdone like so many others, yet rest assured you'll get the looks and soak in some compliments as you blow you competitors heads into the dirt.
Shoot ropes of precisely guided balls so fast and so accurately they'll need a ref (or a seeing eye dog) to walk 'em off the field.

The Shocktech NXT Shocker features:

+ All 6061 Aluminum CNC Construction. Far more durable, much cleaner anodizing.
+ Shocktech Double Roller Bearing Trigger
+ Break Beam Eyes
+ Freak Barrel System Standard or Your Choice of adding a Dye UL Barrel for a
$30.00 Upcharge
+ High Efficiency Bolt w/ Shocktech Trademark Bolt Face for Flow Control
+ Shocktech Design A.S.A
+ Shocktech On / Off Bottomline
+ Shocktech Drop #1
+ Shocktech In-Line Regulator
+ Shocktech Clamping Feed Neck
+ Shocktech Custom Feather Weight Milling
+ Shocktech Easy Off, Easy On Bolt Guide
+ Shocktech F.F.F Trigger Frame (Fat Fingers Friendly) It rocks if your normal or if you need to wear those "Oh Dear God I hope it Bounces Gloves" you keep in your bag.

MSRP: $1199.99 - Black, Silver, Red, Blue, Green
MSRP: $1299.99 - Camo

Upgrades:
Dynasty or Virtue Board, NOX Kilo or Stopping Power Bolt
Strengths: Shocktech upgrades right outta the box
Weaknesses: Bolt Guide for quick access
Review: This is by far the best looking private lable NXT made. Everything has a flow to this marker and each piece blends with the others. It has a great ballance and when set up right, has great accuracy. You need to take the time to dial in the settings of the board but once you have that you are good to go. I am shooting 270 +/-3 @ 165psi and getting right at 1300 shots from a full fill.

This is the only NXT that I've shot and felt comfortable right out of the box with no upgrades. The NOX bolt reduces the kick a little and uses a little less air than the stock HE bolt and the bolt guide lets me get at the bolt without the need for an allen wrench. I put the Dynasty board in because I had it laying around and know the settings on it better than the stock board.

The problem that Uglyduckee had with the regulator comes from the "new" regulator that Shocktech went to. If you get the "classic" shocktech regulator, it's basically a re-milled CP regulator. (This is the one I have)
Conclusion: A solid performer right from the box. There are not many markers out there that I like right out of the box, but this is one that I do. My upgrades are mainly things I've used in the past and instead of selling them with other shockers, I keeped them and put them in my Shocktech. There really is no "must needed" upgrades with this marker as Shocktech already addressed them with this line, unless you have one with the "new" regulator. Though UglyDuckee's is the worst on consistancy that I've heard of, the original style shocktech regulator is a better performer. You can get them again on the Shocktech website, or just get the CP.

Products Used:
Shot everything from A to Z, Currently owna a PMR, Impulse, couple 'cockers, timmy
Marker Setup: 07 Shocktech Shocker NXtT, Crossfire 68/45, Empire B, Dye Ultralite, CP Reg
Recommended
Upgrades:
Get rid of the freak kit, All american tip its upwareds of .702 bore, so even sticking a smaller bore sizer youre still not getting the accuracy you could be. I personally recommend the Dye Ultralite. Also Recommend changing the regulator *Read Weaknesses)
Strengths: Great Gun, Fast, Accurate, a typical shocker, feedneck, drop, freak, blackheart board
Weaknesses: Barrel, reg, can be a little rough on paint at times.
Review: Regulator - right out of the box and even after 4000+ shots with paint and 2000+ dry fire to break in the reg its still +/- 7-8 over the chrono with good paint. I stuck a CP reg on the gun with less than 4000 shots through it and was +/- 2 over the chrono with the same paint/barrel combo.

Barrel - Ive never been a fan of the freak from the start, the tip is way too large of a bore (at a whopping .704, we're shooting paintballs not beachballs right?) I bought the boremaster kit at the same time as the gun and wound up putting my ultralite on the gun, Immediately improving accuracy and despite a few random shots almost got rid of barrel breaks.

autococker threads widened barrel options for me because i own several autococker threaded barrels
the blackheart board inside was a little bit of a suprise for me, i figured this gun would come with a standard NXT board, but the upgrade was a plus in that its very adjustable and very fast.
Conclusion: Its definately a good buy, although i upgraded a couple parts on it, honestly its a great gun right out of the box. Make sure as with any shocker to keep it clean, and lubed, and it wont let you down. I gave it a 9 only because shocktech could have put a little more thought into the reglator, before replacing the MaxFlo with a reg thats not as consistent as the maxflo

Products Used:
DM7(still have)
Ego7(sold)
Dynasty NXT(sold)
Marker Setup: main:shocktech nxt
backup: DM7
Recommended
Upgrades:
virtue/tadao board
hybrid bolt guide
freak insert kit
Strengths: Incredibly balanced
small tight profile
very consistant
fast as hell
more quiet than my DM7
Weaknesses: I have yet to find any.
Review: I purchased a shocktech nxt for an incredible price while I still owned a perfect DM7 and 07 ego. The shocktech is now my main marker and I sold the ego. I am in love with this marker. The first thing I did was to buy a virtue board and throw that in it. After some meddling with the regs and dwell and such, I had the thing singing.

Accuracy: depends on consistancy and marker balance, this thing is ball on ball w/ the freak

Speed: only limited to your fingers/hopper. But really what marker isn't nowadays.

consistancy: Out of the box it was +/- 3 fps fluctuations, correct me if I am wrong but the st has a different reg than the rest of the nxts, I hated the ion reg on my dynasty nxt.

reliability: like many shockers, as long as the orings are lubed and on good condition, it is beast.

looks: I got the urban camo so its 10/10 in my opinion.


Conclusion: I love it but opinions are unique so try it out yourself. I got rid of my 07 ego and the DM7 is on the backburner because of this marker if that means anything.
