    Break beam eyes. There was cops from angel that basically didn't work and smartparts had a go at reflective 'vision' but proper break beams work and still do

    The Nelspot 007 challenger (sold as Nelspot 008 pistol in UK) was my first paintball marker

    It was modded with a 12g quick changer and direct feed for a box hopper.... how times have changed

    Exciting in kinda the wrong way but the fuss that was caused by the AdvantagePB Speedy chip for the DM was crazy. Although cheat boards had been around for ages it was the first widely available product that gave the naughtiness to everyone.

    Is a cheat board a board that allows you to change the settings when you weren't meant to?

    These are the days when the majority of tournaments were semi auto. You'd tap a code into the gun via the power and eye buttons (like, eye, power, power, eye, power, power) which would activate uncapped ramping. If a ref or other player wanted to try you simply knocked any button and it went back to semi. Although there were board shenanigans for a while it's the product that ultimately helped kill semi automatic and led to ramping being normal

    The guys that made it were talented and knew their stuff. Later they went on to make more normal boards, they also rebranded their company to reflect their new non cheaty ways. The name of that new company? Virtue.
