This board is solid! easy to install and program
No weaknesses just make sure you turn the 2 dip switches off to change modes
to sum up everything the install and programing it was easy, i do recommend that you invest in the dye membrane pad it saves you alot of time from having to take your grips off. Also just make sure you read the manual it does look complicating but you will get the hang of it just takes time and patience. So go buy this inexpensive board $79.99 you can beat the price, the cheapest price out there for a new board. And one more thing the customer service is awesome if you ever have a problem with your board Damon will help you out by any means possible!!
Easy install, fast as hell, and very inexpensive and great customer service!
Stock board.......Which is nothing compared to the T-board.
Ion Pro Freak barrel kit, T-board, ASA on/off rail combo, Empire reloader B, redz clamping feedneck and pure energy 68/4500,membrane pad.
FAST and cheap gives you full control of your Ion.
A membrane pad is a must....if you can call that a weakness
I got this board for my Ion after i broke the switch off the stock board ( im a retard ). Since it was SO much cheaper than the other boards i didnt expect anything special from it.When i got it i installed it easily and attached the membrane pad. Overall installation was easy! I went in my back yard dry fired a couple times then i started shooting for real it rips at least 22+ easy. In order to get it that high ROF adjust your Dwell to about 14 or 15 IF YOU HAVE A QEV. Anyways i was ripping in semi it shot ropes! Then I turned it on full auto and started shooting....I almost crapped myself it was so fast it RIPS!!! It's a great and reliable board for 55 without solenoid 70-75 with. I think it is and will be the GREATEST board for the Ion. GET THIS BOARD!
I think its the greatest board for the Ion. Its amazingly fast and reliable. BUY THIS BOARD!!
Remember to set your dwell to 14 or 15 IF YOU HAVE A QEV. You can find what to set it to if you DONT have a QEV. When you buy the board buy a membrane pad with it!! Overall GREAT board 10.

ND s wave trigger
Printing manuals off line if this is even a weakness
Recieved the board 5 days after placing the order. Easy install. Instant on is great. This board is easily laying down 20-24 bps. No chopped balls yet. Worst part was it didnt come with a manual had to print it offline but that was nothing. Damon the owner has been very helpful though email for all question prior to and after ordering.

Wonderful customer service

Im making this short, cuz us college students got work to do
This board is amazing bought it for 90 bucks with the Dye Membrane Pad. First, it is cheaper than any other board out, and better quality.
Amazingly fast, even on semi with no bounce. The new code on the board now has the ability to cycle at 50 cps and the ramping modes eat paint for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Modes are easy to change and the board has an instant on( no more waiting).
The guy at scenario dreams has amazing customer service, and the board comes with a lifetime warranty and free software upgrades.
Really what more can u ask for?
Wait, this is all for just 80 bucks, AMAZING
Wanna make people jealous of your ion without getting a second job? Buy this board, plain and simple.

First of all, I'd like to say that the price alone makes this board worth buying. For around $ 50, you can't go wrong.
The membrane pad is a must for this board, and it doesn't significantly add to the price. With the pad, setting the board up consists of the power button, the eye button, and the trigger. With the manual in hand, anyone can do it. But do keep in mind, without the manual, you will be completly lost, but thats no suprise.
You can change every setting on your gun with the T-Board. And this has so many fireing modes you will never use them all, but they are still awesome to have.
One of the most important things about any electronic is customer support. Scenario Dreams has AMAZING customer support. I broke my power switch (which was me being stupid and not paying attention to how i was trying to jam it into my gun), and emailed Damon and within 24 hours, he had contacted me back and had a replacement shipped overnight to me. Holy Jesus Christ does it get any better then that?
Overall, this chip is by my opinion the best on the market for the Ion for three main reasons:
-Long Battery Life
I originally bought 3 T-Borads as I was building custom Ions for a period of time and selling them. The T-Board was sporting the highest ratings of any board in ANY price range so I didn't even question the purchase.
First things first, of the 3 boards I bought, 2 had to be returned because they were falling apart right out of the box (trigger switch was broken right off in both cases). Despite that I wasn't to discouraged as they come with a lifetime warrenty to which Scenario Dreams was very helpful with.
Second, these boards were being installed into two stock trigger frames and one FBM frame... none fit even close to properly. I was forced to shave down all 3 bodies just to have them fit (I should mention that they look like they fit, until you go to put a battery in and then it becomes so tight that one of two things are a possiblity 1) The wires will cut or 2) The borad will break cause the battery and trigger frame WILL NOT bend).
Thirdly, the way the board is setup is EXTREMELY complicated in comparison to other boards and the manual does a terrible job in giving clear cut explanation for everything.
In the end, I got all three Ions working but it took much more effort and time than any part install should (about 2 months).
!!!!It is also important to point out that this board will not work with certain triggers as it uses an offset trigger pad so any trigger (such as New Designs) that use a pin style screw for switch function will actually completely miss the trigger pad, but Scenario Dreams does point this out on the package, so beware of your board/trigger combo!!!!
The Ions worked great when finally up and going with very fine tuned performance and as far as I know I have had no problems from any of the people I built the Ions for (other than confusion in board settings).
Bottom line though, no one should be expected to have to be an Ion specialist to install and program these boards and the time is not worth the little bit of money you save.
I would suggest either sticking with a stock board or if you really want to upgrade go Blackheart (for an easy to use board with great performance) or a Virtue (easy to install and works perfectly after tuned).
For the Tech Geeks out there like myself, go for it... but I warned you.

Smart Parts Ion
Scenario Dreams T-Board
CP Roller Trigger
Q Lock Neckfeed
Hammerhead Pro Series Rifled Barrel (.690, 12")
Got my gun reaching 24bps
My only weaknesses for it would be since this is a little smaller than the stock board, sometimes it will slide and the power button will be harder to push because it moves from behind the on button on the outside. I just sometimes have to tilt my gun and slide it a bit and its good, but if that doesnt work it will automatically shut off in 15 minutes if not used. Thats my only problem, other than that i LOVE THIS board.
Great buy, i think its the best board you can buy for the ion ever.
Just the stock board, so no comparison really.....
Smart parts Ion:
TechT L7 bolt
CP rail drop
Dye membrane pad
Dye throttle 70/4500
Tons of modes
You can completely adjust all the settings
Easy to program
Um, lets see....well, you have to print the manual from online so.....
Ok, so I wanted to get a new board for my ion, 'cause 17bps just isn't fast enough for me. No, alright that wasn't the reason, but it did have something to do with it....... I wanted something with plenty of modes, and a good reputation, so naturally I looked at Virtue. Lets be honest, most people who have ions don't have alot of money (thats me!!!!), and when you have to either buy all your stuff your self, or wait for birthdays and Christmas to come around, you put alot of thought into what your going to spend your money on. I did a little comparison, the Virtue board and the T-board are basically the same, only the T-board costs less. Seeing the great reviews the T-board got, I decided that it would make a excellent addition to just about any gun. So, I waited for Christmas to roll around, and the rest is history.
Naturally I put it in my gun right away. The first thing I noticed was that it didn't come with a manual. No prob, I went to the website and printed one out. It is COMPLETELY different from the stock board, so it takes some time to get the hang of it. (btw, get a membrane pad, you'll thank me later it you do. It makes it alot easier). It took maybe a few hours.... Once I had it down, I set it all set up, put it on ramping and...................I didn't have any air in my tank. Crap!!!!!!! Luckily, I was playing that saturday, so I waited....and waited....When saturday came, I went out to the field, and..........................realized that I could only go about 2bps faster, because way back then I had an Egg 2, like 19bps tops. So just to test speed I swiped my friends halo V35 (aka, he let me use it) and.................................WOW!!!!!!!! Let me tell you, ramping set at 22bps is a beautiful thing. It was amazing. I still haven't gotten over it. Sigh. The board itself can go much faster, I dry fired it at 31, so.....
Now, this board has about 8 different modes, obviously its completely tourny legal, and you can tweak every setting to make sure that you get the best performance possible. the LEDs are very bright, and it turns on as soon as you push the button. ( so,its like, BAM its on!!! don't sue me Virtue lol) Also, it has some of the best, if not the absolute best tech support. It comes with a lifetime warranty, and they mean lifetime. For instance, I was taking apart my ion and, unknow to me, the wires for my membrane pad adapter were caught in between the grips. I wasn't really paying any attention,and for some reason I thought the board was stuck, so I kinda yanked on it....Ok, I really yanked on it. The plug for the membrane pad adapter got ripped right off the board. So I sent Damon at scenario dreams an email, ( yeah the guy who designed the board answers all the emails himself, awesome) and he said to sent it on in with a note telling what was wrong. I did and less than a week later, I got a brand new board in the mail. I thought, wow these guy are awesome, and they really are. They made a great product, and they back it 100%.
Get it. It makes a huge difference. I can't recommend it over a Virtue board, because I haven't used one. But I can say that based on the descriptions they are almost the same. So, make the call your self. Personally I would get the t-board, get the same performance, and have money left over....Makes sense to me. I can give it a ten, because its the best I've used. I'm sure that there are better boards out there, but for the price its safe to say that this is the best.

Just the stock board but there really are no similarities
2006 Red Smart Parts Ion
Halo B w/ RIP drive, VICTORY35, Drive Cone
68/4500 HPA tank
T-Board set at 24bps
Dye Membrane Pad
CP Red Flame Drop
CP Red On/Off
Easy to use/adjust
You have to get a really fast hopper to keep up with this board.
I get this thing for $76 with the membrane pad included on eBay and it shows up in the mail a couple days later. I already have the gun apart just waiting for it so i swap the banjo fittings and battery, slap the Dye pad on the back grip and slid it into place. Before you start to mess with it, be sure to print the manual off the web site. So i get it all together and turn it on. Brights lights flash, big woop. Be sure to adjust the pre-pull almost all the way in or else the trigger won't push the little swich in there. So i get the trigger to work and then want to change modes. Its super easy to change modes, I only had it an hour and i already could go to all the modes just from memory. I like the 15bps but both me and my friend want it to go faster. So i read the manual a little more and deside to take it easy and put it on 20bps. HOLY cow!!! I played with it a little more and found that it'll go to 24bps with an otherwise stock gun. If i put it on 25, it goes down to like 7bps so it doesn't hurt the gun, but at 24 its fine. Adjusting the modes and ramping speed is sooooo easy i had it mostly memorized after just a day. I set it up with my friend cuz were *** like that and he made me order one for him on eBay the same day. Its also good cuz its got a tourney switch that limits it to 15bps :( but its the rules.
Totally worth $250 but only costs $81 w/ shipping. I like to show up the kids with angels on the field becuase my gun only costs 1/5 of what theirs did.
