I agree on the durability but they don't look any different, a 2 piece looks like a 2 piece.

If you change guns a lot inserts are the way to go though.

Yea, just spend the extra $30 or more for the Boomstick!

And I like the freak... I bought just the barrel at first, and I buy inserts as I need them. Seems like a good idea to me.

Are you kidding, if Smart Parts eliminated all other business... they could freely jack up the prices. It would be the only choice out there.

I have come to the conclusion that apart from a select few individuals, this forum is full of ignorant 12 year olds who have no idea what the hell they are talking about. In the words of Enos, from chat:

<Enos_Shenk>     nick: in a way it IS good business sense
<Enos_Shenk>     they know theyre target market is dumb 12 year olds
<Enos_Shenk>     they can get away with murder because the customer base is too stupid to notice


IMO, looks like this point was proved...

Somebody needs to go back and learn the history of Smart Parts.

Shocker- PVI

Shocker- Initially everyone yelled AKA, but it's more Matrix

Impulse- Bushmaster

Freak- Lapco

All American- DYE

Sticky Grips- DYE

They have not invented anything, thye just rip it off.

Edit- Their barrels are...okay. Nothing special, Custom Products, DYE, and J&J all make excellet two-piece barrels that run as good as or better than the All American. The Freak is torn up by the Scepter, Pipe, Kaner, and even the ACI Kit. Low end barrels...DYE, Custom Products, Lapco, J&J. So really SP barrels don't have a definitive advantage over any other.

This thread is full of retarded statements.

For those of you who think SP is a great company and just wants to defend their "patents", look at this:

THEY SHUT DOWN THREE VERY VERY GOOD ELECTRO GUNS. THAT IS NOT SMART BUSINESS. THAT IS AN ATTEMPT AT MONOPOLY. THIS BEHAVIOR CAN AND WILL RUIN THE SPORT IF ALLOWED TO CONTINUE.

Personally, as someone else said, I don't want to someday be in the market for an electro and all there is is a shocker or impulse. I don't like either, and after this lawsuit stuff I decided that I would never buy a Smart Parts product. They are trying to become the Wal-Mart of paintball. This can't be allowed to happen.




Or read Enos's posts. That works too.
Is God real? You'll find out when you die.

Okay, I don't have a clever signature zinger. So sue me.

They're products are good but they made it impossible for some better guns to come out. I'm sure AGD but lots of resesarch and money into making the X-Mag and now that money is wasted because of some greedy bastard.

I'm glad I'm sticking to mech guns.

You realize that they were issued a new patent in June with 4 claims that basically patents every single electropneumatic gun in existance right?

Thats not smart business, thats exploiting the patent system. They flat out know that small businesses dont have the money to fight off a lawsuit by nazi parts no matter how in the right they are.



Actually I didn't know that. QED on behalf on Enos. GG.

they got a patent for something they didnt invent and over the years made it so broad that they can sue any other electros (at first they tried to get the parent as broad as it is now, but the court threw it out so they patented just the shocker and modified it over the years), their is a rumor going around they are going for another suit very soon. I beleive that is monopoly but im not sure.

I dont like them becuase.

#1 They are known for just blowing off customers.
#2 I dont like their products, and if they get it their way I wont have a choice but to buy them.
#3 Because of them I cant get the viking or xmag I always wanted, I can see people looking back at this time saying "remember when their used to be a bunch of choices for electros other than impulses and shockers?"
