Review: This little upgrade is very very sweet, its just about all you'd ever need....but what can i say im picky....

it would have been perfect if i could have done 2 things...

1) be able to put the button by my thumb on the trigger for fast and easy fire mode changes (from semi to full auto)

2) fully customizable firing mode rotation. (in other words if lets say next weeks game i know ill only want semi auto,3 round burst, and full auto i can remove the other firing modes from my firing mode rotation) so when i push the button beside my thumb it switches and i don't have to look at the led, neither do i have to cycle through unneeded firing modes. and then i can go back into setup and re-enable the firing modes if i so wish it...

i haven't had a problem with mine at all...a little worried about it getting wet, but that can be fixed very easily....close to perfect upgrade.

also, its easy to skip the egrip and go straight to this if you know what parts you'll need- its what i did....
Conclusion: If you have the egrip, and want more ROF and more control, and ease of use....this is your upgrade.

Dispute:
There are no boards on the market that can change placement of the button of the a5 for two reasons:
1. The egrip has a hole under the trigger to be used already, there are none on the side
and
2. The ability to change modes during play would not be tournament legal.
You shouldn't dock a product just because it isn't your dream product.

My friend wanted to buy the rampage board but he doesn't want to have to pay for the e-grip. Were did you get the parts without purchasing the e-grip?

to pbking1000:
The parts are on tippmannparts.com, you can buy a bag o parts for $70, or an assembled for $80. I know this because I did it that way too.

all this is, is the electronics. it doesn't come with the grip. just go on tippmannparts.com and get the grip without the electronics. then get this and put it in the grip.
