Review: A few months into owning my Revvy, a buddy leant me one with this conversion on it and I knew I had to have it. The main reason I got it was because it doesn't spin when you don't want it to, its such a waste of battery life. But I've actually noticed a difference in speed between the two revvy's. On my Black Magic I can outshoot a regular Revvy, but the one with the sound board is fast enough to keep up.

This thing is sensitive to sound though, so closing the hopper door, or any loud noises can set it off. A while ago I was tucked into a bunker next to a kid with a VL Charger and everytime the kid shot my hopper was agitating. The good news is, that even with this in mind, the sound board has FAR less wasted agitation.

The one thing that does annoy me about this product is the on/off switch. Which you have to hold down for about 5 seconds to turn it on/off. Its probably just personal preference but I'd rather just have the traditional revvy with the switch.
Conclusion: There are plenty of hoppers out there with this standard now, but if you need to replace an X-board for any reason definately get this.
