Products Used:
Stock Cricket board... no Vision

Weaknesses: Installation
Initial Use
Gotta Spend $50 for a $5 equalink Cable
Review: Well once you get past the installation which really sucks. (I didn't like the idea of jamming a file into the breach) The board is really a great board, the initial use of the board was a little confusing but you quickly get used to it. After you install and figure out how to use the board, it's absolutely amazing. I'm not really a quick shooter, but i could out shoot my 12v Revvy if i tried turning up the speed just a little bit, so i was really caught in a debate between a Halo B which is probably $30 - $50 less than a vision board depending on where you buy it, and the WAS board. I finally decided i was better off getting the Equalizer cause it would allow me to shoot as fast as i wanted no matter what hopper i would have to use. I must say i'm absolutely pleased with the equalizer, so far i've only gotten to run 500 shots through, but i was shooting as fast as i possibly could and it didn't chop once and i went through all 500 shots in just a couple minutes. With my non-vision board i would've chopped probably 20+ paintballs since usually if you keep ripping after the first break the paint just builds in the barrel and the breach and they break easier and easier.
Conclusion: So as you can see i'm very pleased with my move from the blind cricket board to the all seeing almighty Equalizer board, and if it wasn't for the installation i would rate this thing 10 out of 10, but because i had to stick a file in the breach, i'm not too happy even though i didn't scratch anything. So i've decided this thing deserves an 8 also because if you want to take advantage of the software updates, you need to buy a cable for $50 that probably doesn't cost more then 5 bucks to make.
8 out of 10
