Stock board... ick.
Marker Setup: If you REALLY wanna see my setups... which I doubt, go to:
Strengths: - Fast, upgradeable with new chips, very configurable
- Board installation
- From Damon!
Weaknesses: - Eye installation
- Technically NOT tourney legal!
Review: Since a couple other reviews have covered this board very nicely, I will make mine short and to the point.

I purchased this board some time ago, and have been very pleased with it since then. It is VERY fast, upgradeable, and the board itself is very easy to install. Plus, with a little work, you can change out the LED to one of a better color, not to mention enabling turbo. This board, combined with a T-switch, shimmed solenoid, and a Slasher or Thrasher trigger, will help to put your Spyder into the upper echelons of blow-backs, with only a few other upgrades needed. This product, for the price, ROCKS.

That all being said, I do have a few gripes. The eye installation prooved to be extremely hard (almost ruined my Spyder body!), but that isn't exactly Damon's fault. The same could be said for any aftermarket Spyder board with eyes. My only other complaint about this board is that it is technically NOT tourney legal, since EVERY mode and setting can be accessed without taking off the grips. Sure, the Local Pete's Hyperball series may not care, but if you (for some reason) decide to start doing NPPL/PSP stuff, or anything else that's major, you will not be allowed to use this board. Of course, you probably won't be using this product on that kind of a level, so it's a moot point either way. Just something I thought should be considered.

If you have any questions or comments concerning this product, feel free to post a comment.
Conclusion: Lovin' it!
This is one of the few Eff-approved upgrades out there for E-Spyders. Get one now.

Its tourney legal man its shoots only semi if you get a ramping chip to t-chip then it is illegal.

No, it is not.
If you can adjust the de-bounce in the middle of a game (which you can), then it is NOT considered legal.

If you can't figure out why adjusting the de-bounce in the middle of a game would be considered illegal, lemme help. Basically, turning it down will effectively make your marker bounce... or even go full-auto, in some cases. Both are very unfair and potentially harmfull things.

If you still don't understand, don't even bother replying.

Will the tourney lock on the new chip prevent you from changing these setting in game? (If so, is there a tourney lock on the stock chip?)

I have one of the first-gen boards, so I don't know. MY best guess would be that it prevents this. :)

There's a jumper on the board that tourney locks it. Just pull the jumper off, and blam-o, your last settings are locked in place and cannot be changed.

do you have to get the eyes if you get the chip?
or can you just use the chip to speed everything up?

You don't need the eyes, but if speed is what you are aiming for I would get it. You'll be very limited in your speed as chopping will be a major issue.
