Vision - The Lowdown

Well, in addition to my guide on which impulse to choose, I wanted to give everyone the lowdown on Vision. I just saw about 3 threads asking about vision and its driven me over the edge. Ok, here goes.

Vision
Vision is a complete replacement for the standard cricket/green/amber boards found in impulses. It is a cricket board. It comes with the board, the eye, and a vision cover. It costs about $150 retail. The new vision from Smart Parts does not get confused by paint colors and is capable of 20 bps in both vision and non-vision modes. In non-vision mode, the blue light blinks twice every two seconds. In vision mode it blinks 5 times every two seconds.
Vision is reccomended if you have a low rise feedneck and a slow loader, or if you simply wish to eliminate ball chopping entirely. If you have the money it is a good idea to get vision.

On to part two.

The Wicked Air Sportz (WAS) board
Wicked Air Sportz (www.wickedairsportz.com) makes a board for the impulse called the Equalizer board. The board is a replacement board for the standard board in an impulse. They retail at about $130. The WAS board is different from regular vision in a few ways.
Its capable of 35+ bps
It has a trigger check frequency of 1 Million times per second, which means your trigger will be much more responsive.
It uses a stronger power supply, therefor it can help eliminate FSDO and shoot-down.
It has Programmable solenoid voltage
It has Hopper/Warpfeed trigger output (intellifeed)
It is Programmable via the trigger
It has a software upgrade port
The dwell is adjustable in smaller increments
and it sees all colors of paint and has a lifetime warranty.

At the time that I'm writing this (8-21-03) the WAS board has not been released yet, but will be soon.

All in all, both products are very good to have, and, if you have the money, buy it. Right now it seems the WAS board will be much better than the Vision. But, really, both are good to have.

-both boards do not get confused by different colors of paint, nor do they get confused by using a clear loader. (new versions pertain to this - the old version of Vision can get confused)

If anyone has any questions, ask.

Excelent work Assas!n,

I would like to add that...

- the stock Vision Eye cover and the after market NewDesignz covers for the Smart Parts vision board are NOT compatible with the WAS board. -edit- Some, not all, of the NewDesignz eye covers are compatible.-edit-

- the WAS board is smaller than the SP board and will fit in any grip frame on the market for the Impulse.

- the Cricket (blue light boards are only compatible with the version 1 Iframes from HSW if you desodder the speaker and take it off of the board.

- The currect V2 I-Frame from HSW is compatable with every aftermarket board.

- All WAS Equalizer boards come with vision.

- the older style "Amber" board vision from smart parts uses a pot adjustment for the eye sensitivity level because the eye is analog.

- the newer cricket board with vision doesn't have an eye sensitivity as the eye is digital and doesn't need one.

Hope this helps,
Jeremy "Dr. J" Boehmer

The body of the gun needs to be vision ready, meaning you need a newer model. If you have a 2k2 or 2k3 imp your fine.

vision ready means that you have a small slot and hole drilled just behind your right ball detent. If you baught you imp in that last couple years it will be vision ready most likely
