I planning to try to get a Bob Long Vice this summer w/ the 4c eyes but which board is the better?
The Virtue OLED Board or the Yakuza OLED Board?

I've got the stock board in mine, it's perfectly fine.

All you're buying when you get a Yakuza board is the convenience of having a display screen, and thin grips. With Virtue, you get training modes (which many people never use).

Yakuza OLED, if you want training/drill modes get the virtue. I believe the Tadao software works better with the 4c eyes

I've always liked Tadao more than Virtue...

dont get a new board, dont even get the 4c eyes it s not necessary. once u get the gun play with it a few times and then decide if it actually needs upgrades, all u should ever get is a new bolt and barrel

Why would you EVER upgrade the pillow bolt!!?? :blink:

And meh the stock barrel works just fine for me.

It really depends on if you want all of the fancy training modes and stuff.

Why are there even upgrades available for the Vice? What can you justify spending money on?

If you really do want a new board, Tadao. It sounds way cooler and has more cred. Every nub with an ion has a virtue. It also has better software for 4c eyes and the USB functionality brings OLED boards up a new step. Tadao has always seemed to be ahead of Virtue.

As for the training modes, it's not worth it. Just do the drills without the timer. So what if you can't time yourself? You're building muscle memory so it really doesn't matter as long as you actually try to do it correctly.

Any upgrade for the Vice is personal preference and for people who have some extra cash in there pocket.

Do not replace the Pillow Bolt. Have you ever shot a Vice before? The bolt is amazing, very soft on paint. The stock .691 barrel is also good. The 4C eyes isn't all hype, it does give you better consistency and extra 1-4 bps.
