WAS EQ Board
eye cover isnt perfect fit
filling nub is annoying
Use alot more paint
Initial impressions: When i first found out i got it i ripped it out of the box and stared at it. It was so beautiful. After waiting a year i thought it was just a dream so i stubbed my toe on purpose and it was real. I was happy as anyting.
It comes with a board (really it does? didnt know that captain obvious!) a bunch of shims (for long detents) an eye cover, 3 screws (1 to screw on the eye 2 for the dwell covers.) and the eye.
Installing: I started to file down the eye nub first. I put paper towls in the top tube to catch the shavings. Well It took a little bit to finally file it down but once i got it down all the way i filled it in with a black sharpie. It wasnt a perfect job but it works. It took a total of 15 mins to get it down perfectly. I used some keyboard dusters (can with air basiclly) to clean it up. I then started to get to work on the board
I took my frame off and took out the board and swapped it with the eq. It Fit perfectly. I routed the eye and tryed to attach the cover but found out it was pretty tight. It took atleast 10 mins before i finally got the eye in the cover. When i put it on i noticed that a little bit of the eye showed from the back of the gun but i dont think that will be a problem. Anyway i got it all hooked up fine and installed. I then grabbed some air and paint and went outside.
Shooting: When i got outside i started to set it up. I put the dwell at 8.4 and the debounce at 2. I put the eye mode on 4 (simulate) and started to rip. It shot so fast that my jaw dropped to the ground. I put the eye mode back to 2 (non reflective bolt) and turned my gun off and got all the air out. After about 15 mins i aired up my gun put in paint and turned it on. I fired and noticed that there was 0 fsdo even after i had my dwell lower then normal. I pulled the trigger again and it started to bounce alot. I pulled it and held it in the sweet spot and emptied a full hopper with just bounce.
I finally upped the debounce to 5 or 6 and put in some more paint. It wouldn't bounce at all so it was good. With my old non vision board i would still chop with my evo2. I fired a string of about 15-16 off and got no chopps at all. I finished off the hopper as fast as i could and no chops.
I put in another hopper full and started to try to make it chop. I turned the gun from 90 degrees left to 90 degrees right while ripping and didnt get any chops. It would be slow but it still wouldnt chop. I love it.
Comparison to other boards: Well the stock non vision board is crap so thats out. The ecs non vision wasn't as fast (without vision it was hard to tell if it was as fast or not) and the stock vision board is good but it has fsdo, no debounce, and still chops a few times. I have gotten the stock board to chop a few times with a revy but not nearly as many as without it. The was board doesnt chop from what ive seen and it is easier to rip with.
This board rocks and i recommend it for EVERYONE. If you have a non vision imp this should be your next upgrade. This board is also FAST! Ive shot so many guns out there and i would take this over almost all guns.
What could be better then?
an extremely fast board
did i mention no chopping?
10 out of 10

do you notice a big difference between the sp vision eye and the WAS board? How many balls per second did you shoot with sp vision? Is it worth buyiong the W.A.S board if you already have the sp vision??
I def did between the sp and was boards. With the sp board i couldnt really get my gun going too fast but with the EQ i could hit my peak rof without breaking. I also have noticed that with a revy on the sp board i would have a few chops but with the EQ i had none. If you are going from sp to was i wouldnt do it. I would just get ecs its almost as good and its a lot cheaper.
