Wicked Air Sportz introduces an upgraded circuit board for your Brass Eagle/Viewloader Revolution! This amazing board kicks your Revvy into high gear, offering up to four balls per second faster feeding than a stock 12-volt Revolution, and up to seven balls per second faster feeding than the stock 9-volt Revolution! There are two different TurboRev models being offered, the TurboRev9(sm) and TurboRev12(sm).
Product Availability 
The Wicked Air Sportz TurboRev Board is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Strengths: the turbo rev board is great. when I first installed it in my rev I had it turned on befor I had it pluged into the sensor eye. when it pluged in the eye the motor started spinning so fast it fliped out of the half shell it was in and took the board and batterys with it. this board works like an 18v wireless intela feed on crack. the motor spins for every ball fired and then spins at a slower speed for 2 secounds after you have stoped firing. another plus is when your hopper is empty it will spin for a short while (like 4 or 5 secounds) and the go on stand by mode till you put more paint in. this board upgrade is less than the price of a rico and a fourth the price of a halo (when ever they come out), plus it lets you us the hopper you already have.
Weaknesses: nothing so far.
Conclusion: I would reccommend the turbo rev board to any one running a rev and having feed problems. it is worth the money because you can now maintain a higher rate of fire and not worry about chopping or skipping shots. wicked air sports has great teck suport also I emailed the with a question right after I got the board and they had an email back to me in like 20 minutes. this board is a must have for any one shooting a high end semi or elctro.

Strengths: Simply stated, this product does what is says it does, and that alone is very impressive! That means MORE bps! It’s like putting a supercharger on your hopper. This upgrade makes the Revolution keep up with even the fasted trigger finger. On top of that is the fact that installation of the TurboRev took less than five minutes!

One of my favorite features is that with the new board installed, my hopper knows when I am out of paint. No more spinning forever! I know that if I’m in a firefight and I hear my opponents’ hopper start spinning like mad, he’s out of paint and about to get bunkered.

The TurboRev also has an LED status indicator that can be switched to a stealth mode for night games, sleep mode (see above) and an automatic shut down if you forget to turn the hopper off.

Detailed instructions are included in the manual for all the different programmable modes.

Did I mention MORE bps?
Weaknesses: I've found nothing bad about the TurboRev!
Conclusion: Let's face it, most of us have either a 9v or 12v Revolution and we all want it to feed faster. If you’re like me, you've thrown money at every hopper that's come out and none of them seem to do what they claim.

Well, welcome to the future! This product is going to make a huge splash in the industry. I would recommend this product to anyone who owns a Revolution. For less than $40.00 it's definitely worth the cost.

The upgrade is available for the 9v and 12v revys so here’s a little tip. If you are going to buy a new Revolution and a TurboRev board, buy a 9v Revolution. There’s usually about a $10.00 difference between a 9v and 12v Revolution and only a $3.00 difference between the upgrades. (The TurboRev is a 12v board, so the 9v upgrade includes upgrading your hopper to 12v and a new 4-blade prop.) Maybe if we bug Jim, we’ll be able buy a Revolution with the TurboRev board already installed direct from Wicked Air Sportz sometime in the future.

I am currently using one of the final prototype boards and have two more on order.

Products Used:
Stock Revvy Board
Marker Setup: B2K, 10" Dye Aluminum, Benchmark Cradle, Dye Stickies, Sonic Ball Detent, 12 Volt Revvy with Wicked Air Sports Turbo Rev Board and Vortex Impeller, Eclipse Low Pressure Reg Adjuster, Sonic LPR Gauge, PMI 68/3000 Carbon Fiber Tank
Strengths: Good instructions. Easy to install. Operates very easily. Great increase over stock Revvy. The LEDs offer more information than just On or Off. When the board senses there are no more paintballs for a couple of seconds it shuts off instead of continuing to move the paddles.
Weaknesses: The battery clips are the cheap snap on kind. The stock revvy had the kind where the batteries fit snugly up against them (kind of hard to get the lid closed though).
Conclusion: Its worth it. I was constantly outshooting my 12 volt revvy until I got this upgrade. I like the push button on/off switch better than the toggle switch and the fact that it stops revolving the paddles after a few seconds of being totally empty is a nice feature as well. The blinking LEDs also offer additional information over the stock revvy.

none
Marker Setup: meh, not now.....
Strengths: fast, reactive like any of the other chips, but with different varying speeds. also it stays on a sec or 2 longer then it detects a ball in the chamber (good for rapid firing) - not too expensive?
-not completely reactive, thus, considering the normal x board, it turns on when a ball is not in place, this just starts, and keeps going, even longer then after it detects a ball, thus there are no slipups in major strings of paint - still only feeds at the speeds of gravity (around 11-13 bps)
Weaknesses: - wastes batteries, supposedly the turbo rev 2 will fix that, its supposed to come out soon
- not good for ppl who dont shoot a lot, if your not a big shooter (erm, shoot in long strings), stay away from this item, its good for the paint slugger, not really effective for someone looking to stay still and just break up jams (its ment to keep going a few sec longer)
Conclusion: great product, if your a rec baller not looking for massive paint slugging stick to a x board, if your someone into long bursts, this will help, up to about 13 bps, the only problem i have with the item is the battery draining, i run though them so quickly........

Products Used:
nothing really compares to the turborev, the X-board is just hype really.
Marker Setup: Cobra Angel LCD
Angel Air
Rev w/ intelifeed
Turbo rev
ricochet
numerous barrels
Strengths: it feeds faster by controlling the motor via a microcomputer on the board. Not just by upping the voltage and spinning the paddle super fast, because for all you smart asses, that isn't always the answer. In fact, spinning the blades faster can even slow your bps down.
Weaknesses: I had one hell of a time putting this in, but that was mostly the revvy's fault, not the board. Plus i now know how to solder.

***you don't have to solder to get the board in, I just accidentally pulled the wire off the motor. If it works normally, not like mine, you just unplug the old and plug in the new, simple as that.***
Conclusion: same as the good.

probally wont help as much as the HALO, look for my review on that when I win one in my tournement in 1 week.

Paintball
Experience:
3 years
Marker Setup: Shocker
Strengths: The good it does seem to feed faster
Weaknesses: You can't tell when its on or off when playing in direct sunlight. I would have much rather had the same type of switch and not the push and hold for 3 seconds. Sometimes it seams like it just goes nutz and just keeps spinning even when I not firing. The light is what really annoys me the most
Conclusion: I think its worth20 bucks. but Im pretty sure I paid like 37
