The Wicked Eye is a simple plug-in replacement for the stock infrared transmitter "eye" used in the Bob Long Intimidator. If you ever get paint into the breech of your Intimidator, the stock eyes will "go blind". This replacement eye will transmit through liquid paint and your anti-chop system will still function perfectly! Compatible with the Equalizer and stock electronics for the Intimidator.
The Wicked Air Sportz Wicked Eye is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

See's through paint that gets on the lense even tho that shouldn't happen.
Nothing that i noticed.
I think this Wicked Air Sports eye is awsome. I have not had any problems with it bogging down on me. I haven't shot any black paint but i filled up my evolution 2 with red paint and just emptyed it on a tree seeing its capabilities and it did awsome. The one thing they shoulda mentioned on there site is that only one is neccesary. Most people by 2 thinking thats what you need but you only replace one of the eyes but other then that i experience no problems.
In conclusion, i think this is a great, very cheap product to get. It increases the peformance and wide range of paint colors and its very easy to install.
All run on a 68/4500 no name tank
all shoot pmi premiums (all i can get at my field)
When functional they performed as advertised
broke down twice since i got my highlander
First off let me say that these eyes worked as advertised when they worked.
Ive been playing with my highlander for the last few month and only had 2 occasion where balls were broken in the gun, both times came when my eyes stoped working in the middle of a game. Once probly 2 weeks after i got my marker and the 2nd time last weekend.
The first was basicly unexplained and i chalked it up to just being a bad set, the 2nd time may have been my fault i left paint in the breech from a ball that poped in my halo the day before, i dont know if thats capable of damaging eyes but it is a possibility.
Now on to the better, i shot paint of just about every collor through my gun while the eyes were working and have had no problems. When teamed with the was board it alows for some pretty good fire rates and gives you the confidance that your guns not gonna turn in to a blender.
I dont know if i would purcase these eyes if i had a marker that came with eyes, and just do to the fact that i had 2 sets crap out i dont think im going to purchase another set for my viking. When functional though they do live up to the advertisments.
functionality gets a 10
price gets a 10
durability gets a 1
overal rating of 7
I have used other WAS products on my timmy, I also own a Impulse with a Vision eye

Value for your money, availability.
Unsubstantiated rumors (unsubstantiated by me at least) of problems with eye positioning
The main reason I ordered this product is that I broke the wires to the stock eye far too often (probably my own incompetence). When I realized that I could get these for $10 plus very inexpensive shipping, I decided to stock up on them.
Simple drop in installation, I didnt have to do any adjustment to get the eyes to line up, though I keep hearing that others have had to twiddle with the alignment. I have had the eye off several times for cleaning and never had to do any realignment so I don't know much about that rumor.
As far as being an upgrade, thats hard to judge. I used this Timmy with stock eyes for about 4 months previous and never encountered much paint breakage. With the WAS eyes I continue to break very little paint, so I have a hard time answering as to wether it can really see through broken paint. I could intentionally smash some paint and then see how it handles it, I do enough cleaning as it is though.
I will say that I can comfortably shoot a regular 12volt revvy with the WAS board cranking my rate of fire and the WAS Eyes and/or Software seem to prevent any breakage, so no problem there.
In summary. They work well, simple drop in installation, cheap to buy, cheap shipping. Buy a few, drop one in your gun, and keep one as a backup in case you're a doofus like me and keep breaking wires
I have a GZ now but use this paint in a Cole Cocker with a torpedo, cole bolt, shocktech ram sto three way, rock reg and revy 12 volt with 12" ultralite barrel.
does see through paint like they say
w/ sob board make the gun delay a second even when a ball is loaded
Okay when I got to my feild this weekend I had it in the back of my mind that this eye was gonna screw me and well it did. The jousting started with the crono I thought that somehting was wrong with my gun at first , I would pull the trigger and nothing for a second then it would shoot. This was quite disturbing I tryed at it all day with a force feed hopper, with a revy nothing helped. I was forced to play most of the day with my eyes tricked.
I am trying it out in a dragon with a updated was board this weekend to see how it works wo right now I would just say if you don't have an equalizer board don't even bother.

when i put it in my other eye stopped working and had to be replaced
yuck a worthless upgrade. It was a waste of my ten dollars. i would never have bought it had i known that it was going to be such a pain. Let's see i bought it for ten and both my eyes worked fine i put it in and my eye stopped working. I put the stock eye in and the other eye still wouldn't work. I ended up spending $15 to replace the stock eye. So basically i spent $25 and getting nothing for my money i'm still using the stock eye. Don't by this trash the stock eye is more than enough
Junk don't buy it. It never worked. Spend your ten dollars on the WAS switch or lunch instead.
