Default Proline Ultra Reservoir Shocks

The search bar is currently not working for me (it gives me an error message when I try to use it), so I was wondering if there is a thread for these shocks:

These things look sick and I want them a lot!

They even have a collar to adjust how far the primary spring can move!

Kyb monomax shocks for my autocross truck were $180 shipped. I doubt either of our shocks make scale nerds moist in their panties like these new proline shocks do.

I can't speak for everyone, but I'm a scale nerd and I sure as hell ain't spending that much $$ for toy shocks for my toy Jerp.

I agree that the price is extremely high but other than that you have to admit that these things are sick.

Another thing is that I might be able to find them cheaper elsewhere. For instance Proline's pro-spec shocks are $70 on their website which is also a ridiculous price, but on Amazon for instance you can get them for $55

the gmades are the same design and a bit cheaper. they work very well as long as you built them right and dont cross a thread in the plastic caps.

I am also seriously considering buying those ones, and I probably will if I don't want the prolines, but they are partially made of plastic and I'm not sure how well it will hold in the long run.

Like I said, other places do have these shocks cheaper. RPP just stocked them and you can get them shipped for $160 using their coupon codes and their free shipping for orders over $150. IMO its still a lot of money so I think I might wait to see how amazon prices them before I make a decision.

I thought the reservoir was just for looks but it does provide a function. I'm not sure if these are worth $80 a pair, but the price makes more sense now.

I'd be interested to see some reviews.

Only $150? That's a bargain!

The Gmades are a functional resi as well. And I've bought entire rigs for than the cost of these shocks. But, it's your money, we all have things that others things are silly to spend that kind of cash on.

So has anyone used these types of reservoir shocks before? Do they actually work or is it more of a cool gimmick?
