I have an azodin blitz and I hear people talk about boards and how the azodin board is just a basic board that has just very simple programs, but if i'm just playing for the fun of it, why would I need all these different programs for my azodin? I guess I just don't understand boards, could someone please explain? Thanks

In your case, you don't need a board with everything. Most of the settings on other boards are beneficial to electropneumatic guns that need more adjustments and fine tuning, but not your Blitz.


Expensive boards will have modes and settings for just about everything you could possibly need

  • Modes of fire (Semi; ramping profiles - PSP, Millennium, NXL, etc)
  • Rate of fire cap
  • Dwell adjustments
  • Eye modes/delays
  • Debounce settings (telling the trigger when to ignore or pay attention to signals from the microswitch to avoid trigger bounce)
  • Bolt delay

That is not a comprehensive list either, and just shows how much there is to tinker with. Though most stock boards on reasonably non-cheap guns will most likely already have the full programming meaning an aftermarket board isn't necessary.

Other than different modes I might buy a board for a softer spring.

For guns I just play recball with, I need few settings:



-eyes on/off


I only play semi when playing recball.  Bolt delay, anti-mechanical bounce, and eye/loader delay are nice, but not usually necessary.


Modes, ROF caps, etc. are only really necessary if you begin to play competitively.  Even if you go to a scenario, I'd stick to semi.  Your wallet will thank you.


Unless you notice a problem, save your money for paint.  Or a used setup if you feel that setup is holding you back.  I can assure you, though, it's likely not.  Just go play.
