Shocker Rsx: The King of the Competition
The original Shocker was built by PneuVentures and distributed by Smart Parts in the United States in 1995. At the time, it was the very first electro-pneumatic paintball rifle available on the market. Since then, several revisions of the marker have emerged, including the new Shocker RSX, which is reborn from its ashes in 2016, in order to regain its place among the main lines of speedball marker in the industry.

Instead of the original Shockers’ double solenoid design, the SFT Shockers used only one. In addition, it was one of the smallest and lightest fully electropneumatic markers available on the market.
Shocker NXT (2006-2009)
Towards the end of 2006, Smart Parts launched the Shocker NXT. It was actually an improved version of the Shocker SFT. In fact, the shape, basic operation, internal, solenoid and electronics were similar.

Low air consumption
In order to make the Shocker RSX more efficient than its counterparts, its breech system uses only 170 PSI. This saves your air and makes this one of the most accurate marker available on the market. The ability to use less air also means that the cylinder head system and internal will last much longer.
The sound makes a huge difference on the playing field. Smart Part is built the Shocker RSX by wanting to make it as quiet as possible. They succeeded in their goal because they use low pressure for the marker to work. At only 170 PSI, the breech is ultra silent and will allow you to keep your hidden position from other players.
