Review: This is by FAR the best $55 i EVER spent on ANYTHING in my life. I went outside and dumped 100 balls in no time flat. This board came in 3 days, nice and fast shipping. Customer support is excellent. The board is programable to every aspect, and is, of course, eye compatable. It is the best upgrade ive ever bought. With the multi-mode chip, you can go rebound, burst, or full auto up to 54shots per second. Impossible ROF for a blow back (low 40's max), but its still a good statistic to know.

I did some extensive testing with a break beam eye setup. Using my old Reloader II, which feeds 14bps, i set my bounce and dwell to get as close to 14 as i could and put 50 balls thru, no chops. Then i moved on to the Halo B, tweaked the dwell and bounce as close to 22 as i could get, and put another 50 balls thru, MUCH FASTER LOL but still no chops =D

Final, probobly biggest test was the VL200 gravity loader test. I left the bounce and dwell where they were, so this test would be relying solely on the eyes, and the eyes alone. I was blown away. As fast as they came in, they were on thier way, NO CHOPS. I was stunned. Although it made perfect sense they would work, it was almost unbelievable. And for a mere 10 buck cost, and $5 in shipping, a no-chop garentee is well worth it.

The drilling for the eyes was not that hard at all with a drill press. I made a small set of holes thru the gun first, then widened the back 3/4 of the holes to seat the eyes so they wouldnt push thru. I also drilled a set of holes on the sides of the ESP to route the wires, as it should be. I drilled the holes for the eyes really low in the chamber, so it would be the bottom of the ball breaking the beam.
The result was two-fold. 1.) i could set the eye delay much lower, thus almost garenteeing a flawless operation but....2.) If a bad ball ever broke when it dropped into the chamber, like if it was already broke when it came in, then the goo would get in the way of the eyes. That was a problem. I had to take off my neck and flush it with water to clean it out. But once i started using good ol' scortch from wall mart again, that problem was done away with. Since i stopped using Archon revolt paint (possibly worse than Brass Eagle or Blue Streak) my goo problem has disapeared. The eyes are flawless. A very, very wise $15 investment.

*==-EDIT ==*
After extensive use with the tchip, the scenario dreams equipped spyder/clone becomes an unbelievable. The rate of fire of the chip is uncapped, so it's limited only by how much power it has feeding it. You adjust the ROF via settings numbering 1-20, one being the fastest, 20 the slowest. When the marker fires, all you hear is a blur. It's the most impressive thing i've ever heard.
Conclusion: Stock boards look like you-know-what compared to this 36bps beast. I would award this thing a 20/10. =D with eyes, its unreal. Just unreal.
