Developed in coordination with Violent, this signature Yakuza Series board is designed for the Ego 8 and Ego 7, and is the first aftermarket Ego board to feature OLED display technology. OLED (organic light emitting diode) displays have numerous advantages over traditional LCDs. They have lower power consumption, higher contrast, and, due to the manufacturing process, are sealed, making them highly resistant to vibration and moisture. Unlike LCDs, each pixel of an OLED screen is a light emitting diode and emits its own light. This makes power consumption directly proportional to how many pixels are lit, making it easy to view even in direct sunlight.
All the necessary information is shown on the OLED screen, including eye status, battery life, current fire mode and max rate of fire, and a game timer. The settings are also easily adjusted through the full text based menu system. The screen orientation is even adjustable, allowing the user to pick landscape left and right, or a vertical display similar to the stock Ego board's screen.
The Yakuza software takes a major step forward over the last iteration of Musashi. With all new hardware the asynchronous interrupt based trigger scan is monitored at 4 million times per second, with the microcontroller running at a full 16 Mhz. The fire modes have been consolidated, but include a few new adjustable parameters, giving even more flexbility than before. Notable settings include ramping percentage, screen text size, screen brightness, and settings profiles which can be used to save and load your settings for different formats and playing styles.
Included is the new Anti-Breech Bounce software, which helps to eliminate chops when a loader is running low on paint and isn't capable of providing a steady feed rate. RF support is also present with the inclusion of a dedicated transmitter socket and wiring harness.
The circuit board is the most important part of any electronic paintball marker, and upgrading it can enhance all the performance characteristics. Tadao's leading edge Yakuza Series provides the user with the ultimate in adjustability and speed.

Easy to read display
Poor tech support
Screen black out twice
Never worked right
Received the board. Used for about 2 practices when screen blacked out. Sent it out to get fixed under warranty which I still had to pay $7.00 to get the board sent back. (Some warranty) When I got the board back I put it in my gun and did not even get a full practice out of it when the screen blacked out again! Told them my issue and they said they just took the screen on and off to fix it instead of finding the actual issue and replacing it. I contacted them to have it fixed and now it looks like I will have to pay another $7.00 to get it fixed for the same exact problem!!!!!!
Poor quality and poor tech response. Weak warranty. I would not purchase!
Stick with the stock board. At least if something goes wrong, Eclipse will replace your entire board for free!!!!!!!!
If upgrading, use Virtue! Never had any problems and great tech support!!
