Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month
More than 5 years
Products Used:
Vaporworks Chaos Max Chip
Marker Setup: B2k 6th Gen.Halo, Freak, Zenitram magnetic 45 frame, Macdev Red Valve, Gladiator and LPR. Vaporworks bolt, PDS, Check-it locking feedneck, Warped Sports Dropforward, Macdev Sonic ASA adapter, Dye Sticky Grips, few other goodies I cant think of at the moment.
Strengths: Cheap, Blazing Fast, Tournament Legal
Weaknesses: One mode only, Semi, but its max ROF what else do you need?
Review: Installation was very easy, plug and play. The board can also be cut down and placed in the battery try, and the battery swapped out to the grip frame.
Instructions were very well written and easy to follow. All programming was done via the trigger, very similar to using the Chaos Chip.

The board can be set to lower the BPS is no paint is detected or to scrub the shot of no paint is detected. I set mine to scrub the shot.

My major complaint about the Chaos Chip is that, it was possible to chop paint at very high rates of fire, even with a PDS equipped marker. This is a major issue with me, as I felt the chaos chip decreased the effectiveness of the PDS.

I switched out to the Techpro Blastermax board, and was amazed at how fast this thing can cycle paint. It is amazingly fast, and interfaces with the PDS system without chopping paint. This board can out shoot a Halo-B. At this point, I am going to have to upgrade my halo to the new Victory board.

Bottom line, is that if your looking for a very fast board, with good compatibility with the PDS system, the Techpro board is in my opinion the best board.

Donít get me wrong, I still keep my Chaos Chip plugged into the stock ICD board, and will switch that out for Scenario games, when I need additional modes of fire, and donít really care about chopping paint. However, for hard-core tournament play, the Techpro Blastermax board is the better choice.
Conclusion: Best buy for the money. Its high ROF and interface with the PDS system works better than the Chaos chip, make this a great buy. I would recomend this board for Tournament players, that are picky about chopping paint.
