vaporworks feed neck

madman and 32* spring kits

Weaknesses: none
Review: This board is great. I got one for the first 5 released so I still have the 1.0 software. So the eyes are not adjustable until I get the 1.1 software. Being able to adjust the ROF is great. You can crank it up if you have eyes or a hopper that can take it or you can take it down if your hopper can't take the faster ROF. The dwell and debounce adjustments are nice too. One great feature of the board is the default reset. This allows you to adjust all you like and if you mess anything up you just select the default and you are back to normal and working again. The BRIGHT blue LED is neat. It makes going through the menus really easy. You never wonder if it blinked or not. Invest the few extra dollars and get one of their 50g switches also. Once you get the switch and a nice trigger the pull and feel can be described as a "mouse click". Once you get good at walking the trigger people will not believe that your gun is not full auto.
Conclusion: GET THIS BOARD! With the board and their switch you can rip like no other. If you add a good trigger it gets even better. I have to honestly say that my personal ROF doubled with the trigger, board and switch.

Products Used:
None. Only stock Kingman IPI Esp board.
Marker Setup: LP Spyder Esprit (280 FPS @ 315 PSI)
IS Board
IS 50g Switch
Check It Products Sweet Spot trigger
Palmer Stabilizer
Spudnuk'l Nylatron LP Bolt
Maddman Rocket Valve
Smart Parts Freak barrel system
Empire Reloader B / Viewloader eVLution II Yboard
Crossfire 47/3000 HPA w/WDP Lok SOks
Shocktech long Drop with Shocktech on/off
DYE Sticky 3 Grips
New Designz Impulse to Spyder feed neck adapter
Fireball Mountain Choke Chain clamping feed neck
Intimidator eye covers and detents

Strengths: Very adjustable and upgradeable. Direct drop in board. FAST! Anti-chop eyes.
Weaknesses: Annoying blue LED. IS team is swamped and hard to get a hold of.
Review: Pros:

Fully adjustable debounce, rate of fire, and sear dwell with tourney legal jumper to lock out the debounce settings. ROF adjustable from 1-99 BPS. Pretty simple interface using trigger pulls and the blinking LED. Uses idential connectors as Kingman boards so it is a direct drop in upgrade. No soldering or rewiring needed, just in case for any reason you need to swap back to the stock board. Comes with break-beam anti-chop eyes.

Cons:

Won't fit oldest Kingman e-frames like the FLASH cuz of different connectors, but that is more Kingman's fault. The LED is BRIGHT and flashes EVERYTIME you pull the trigger. This gets annoying especially playing indoors in darker areas. Everyone knows where you are because the area around you is flashing like strobe lights. You don't know when the frame is no cuz the LED doesn't light up by simply turning it on, so you have to be more careful to make sure you turn off the frame when not in use. The LED is very noticeable through stock clear Kingman grips, DYE Sticky 3 grips, and the LED is oriented with the hole in the back of the grip frame left vacant because the IPI push button is no longer there.
Currently no support for Eye menues though they should be out for version 1.1 chip revision. The eyes work. Just no adjustability parameters yet. The IS team is a very small team also and they seem swamped with all the work. They are hard to get a hold of for questions or help should a board fail.
No eye covers available. You have to make them yourself. Any marker looks somewhat ghetto with wires dangling around the body or when it has tape all over it cover the wires.
Conclusion: The board goes what it needs to do and does it well. Uncapped progreammeable ROF, break beam anti chop eyes, and not too expensive. The negative aspects are more little things. Some people like the blue LED and won't mind it. Kinda like ricey neons on the undercarriage of a car. FOr others that want to be a bit more discreet, they may have issues with it. And you can't just take it off, since its needed to program the board. For these minor annoyances, I give this board a 9. Its still an awesome awesome board.

Review: WOW WOW WOW once i installed the board I was like WOW look at my spyder go. you can set the BOUNCE, SEAR DWELL and the BPS this is the single best thing i have ever done to my marker. and once I installed the eyes I have never chopped a ball.

FEEL THE POWER OF MY SPYDERS BITE!!!!

Haven't used any similar ones, but there is the T-Board(almost the same as IS Board), Kinetic Board that will be coming out, and the XSF Advantage Kit.
Marker Setup: Spyder E-99
Check it Sure Feed Adapter
Evil Pipe Kit
47/3000 Crossfire Nitro tank
Shochtech SupaFly Bolt
Shochtech Spring set
Egg 2 with Z-Board
IS Board 1.0 with IS 50g Switch
DYE Sticky 3's
Strengths: FAST!
DEBOUNCE!!!!!!
EASY TO USE!!!!!
BRIGHT LED!!!
EYES!!!
Weaknesses: In version 1.0 eyes are harder to use.
Review: The IS Board is one of the best upgrades you can do to your spyder. It gets rid of that awful 13 or 14 bps cap. It shoots wicked fast. Definitely get an IS 50 gram swiitch to go with this for only $6 extra. When I shot this gun I was shocked to believe that it was a Spyder. I can outshoot my Egg 2 with Z Board Now. I am very happy. I can't wait to get version 1.1 of this board. I hear it will be better on power and easier to use eyes.
Conclusion: Get it now if you want to make a pimpin spyder! Never chop again! This is a great product.
