Review: I will begin by thanking Wicked Air Sportz. This board is the savior of Impulses. Without this board, I would have sold mine and upgraded to a Timmy. This board can take the bare-bones non-vision Impulse, and convert it into a paint-slinging monster.

Some people may complain about the price, but then again, look at what you compare it to. The Vision sister board for the Cricket sells for $150. All you get there is a very finicky and limited eye. For the same cost, the WAS board gives you a FSDO solution, maximum ROF capabilities, as well as other settings for fine-tuning your marker.

The WAS board has settings for Dwell, Debounce (never before available to Impulse users), 4 different eye modes, Ball In Place Delay, ROF cap (for eye mode 1), and eye sensitivity levels.

Dwell: Nothing special, except that it is adjustable in 1ms as well as 1/4ms increments

Debounce: Helps keep your marker tournament legal, no matter the trigger setup

Eye Modes: Bypass- Eye off mode, yet capped at 13 bps so that if the eye malfunctions, you won't just chew up paint and spit out soup. Eye Mode 1- ACE is set up with a ROF cap (20-30 bps adjustable) for non-reflective bolts. Eye Mode 2- for reflective bolts, the bolt positioning is monitored to maximize cycle rate. Simulate- mode that allows maximum ROF while no paint is in the marker, allowing high-speed test/dry firing.

BIP Delay: adjustable delay time so the user can set it according to the speed of their hopper

ROF Cap: For eye mode 1, allows adjustable speed settings to maximize ROF for non-reflective bolts

Eye Sensitivity: Allows user to adjust sensitivity to motion, textures, and colors. Reduces eye confusion of light with paintballs, and vice versa.


**Newer players may find the installation a bit involved, and may want to have a local airsmith do the filing on the eye slot.
Conclusion: My marker is 100% better now that I have the WAS board. I am hitting higher speeds, with greater shot consistency than ever. That and the fact that I haven't chopped a ball in the 2 cases I've used so far, convince me that this board is as good as everyone is hyping it up to be.

Competition mode does NOT require the Equalink. You can change modes by jumpering two pins on the board and turning on the power.
