Review: The 2012 Spec G6R is a great gun hobbled by a middling board.

The main issue that I take with this particular gun is that while, yes, the board is now an OLED; the features are cut about in half compared to the stock LED board in the 2010/2011 spec G6R's. There is no fine BPS adjustment. meaning that you can shoot only whole integers (12 BPS, 13 BPS) , but you cannot adjust it to 12.5 BPS.

I realize that the board is designed pretty much in house by BLAST, but it needs improving.

However, the Cam Drive ASA is a very nice touch. It is easy to turn on and off, and much easier to grip with greasy, sweaty, or painted fingers.

This review is not to take away from the fineness of this gun, it is still my preferred paint slinger. I just wish to state that they need to redo the boards.

Don't hold your breath for an after market board either; as both the major companies have pretty much stated that they either have no interest in or cannot produce a board for the gun.
Conclusion: As for my final recommendation: I would say that if you can stand the old ASA and are a "Set It And Forget It" player; then stick with the older spec guns. Final Review 8/10. Above average, but definitely in need of improvement.
