Review: I've had experience w/ both the ESP frame and this frame, and boy does this one blow Kingman's away. It's got a sweet, easy to use LCD screen, whereas not even kingman's rocking trigger offers an LCD. Perhaps the most overlooked yet best trait about the 32 degrees frame is the fact that it's easy to mod the trigger and install a different board/switch. With every other Spyder frame (or at least, all the frames I've seen), you have to pound out the small, metal rods that hold in the trigger switch when you want to remove it (and if you miss the tiny little rods w/ ur hammer, you will crush ur frame). With the 32 degrees frame, you can simply unscrew it w/ a small screw driver. Also, the 32 degrees trigger is plastic. Most ppl complain about this, but actually, a plastic trigger is better because you can easily mod it w/ a dremel tool, turing it into a blade trigger or some other cool trigger w/o having to spend $20 on a new one! This frame also take the offset spyder drops and the standard drops, giving u a better variety in drop forwards and cradles. The only problem I have with this frame is that my stock screws didn't work with it (You might not hav this prob if u dont have a TL-X i don't know). They'd stay in for a little but eventually they'd pop off and my body would fly off the frame. I tried 3 different lengths screws (causing me lots of trouble and failures during games cuz they'd eventually pop off) until I finally found the perfect screw. The Spyder Compact's trigger frame screws. These are PERECT for my TL-X, and now the frame is immaculate.
Conclusion: Buy it buy it buy it! I got mine for only $40 bucks!!!! $40 electro frame+$90 TL-X = Spyder that outprefroms the E-99 Avant and Imagine for less and with a cool LCD screen. Only give it a nine cuz of my screw problem
9 out of 10

Imagines are $100, so how is a $130 TLX with an electronic frame make it better? It's $30 more.
