Review: Compared to the stock vision board, this is night and day. The options and features that you have control over are everything you need. This board is not intended to go full auto or does it have any programmed burst settings. Most people don't play in those types of tournaments anyway. And if you do, all you have to do is lower the debounce setting, and you're practically bouncing your way to full auto. Installation was not very hard, involving some filing of the main body vision hole, and some tinkering with the detent spacer rings provided. The instructions online are very clear and concise, and any issues are answered there. The WAS online message board was also helpful for any other questions.

Dwell control on WAS board is excellent, instead of a pot switch as found on the smart parts board you can actually program the actual milleseconds. And the WAS board provides more voltage toward the solenoid, insuring better "firing". Debounce control is very very nice feature, to optimize how you are trying to play - and the sensitivity of said bounce. Eye control and Rate of Fire features are also excellent.

The board also has an eye bypass mode, which is handy to dry fire, and make sure that the marker is cycling correctly.

I took my marker out to chronograph it, and unloaded 100 balls in a few seconds...the WAS board detects the bolt and how that is firing, along with the balls in the breech. Definitely no chopping here...

Get a Halo, absolutely, to keep up!
Conclusion: I would recommend it hands down....$150...for all the stuff you'd ever need!
10 out of 10
