For as long as E-Blade autocockers have been made, they have been either semi or limited to 15BPS in ramp. Now we have a board which promises to remove this speed limit. $179 is a lot to pay for an aftermarket marker board - so it better be worth it!

This board is a direct replacement for the E1 and E2 from Eclipse and will also fit in a WGP Worrblade.

International shipping took about two weeks and you get a neat little plastic case with an instruction manual, a few stickers and an RF link cable for those of you with a Pulse or Magna loader.

Installation was a breeze, just remove the connectors and three screws from the old Eclipse board and fit the new Yakuza in it's place. A small issue was the bottom of the board was slightly oversized and had to be teased into place - but that is probably more the fault of my Worrblade than the board.

Set up was easy (in fact my MQ2'ed Karnivor shot first time out with the stock settings) After a few minor tweaks to get rid of some shootdown my marker was happily firing in excess of 21BPS in full auto and custom ramp. Now I know this might not seem like a lot to you Ego owners - but for a 'cocker it's amazing!

Other owners have been managing +25BPS, but this is going to require a very high flow HPR (eg AKA 2 liter) and a very fast ram (like a Belsales Mag 44 or ANS with QEVs)

The board is feature packed and every setting is adjustable - sometimes by as little as 0.5ms.

The internal tournement lock makes it tourny legal and it has every conceivable firing mode.

Modes straight from the manual are:

Semi-automatic unlimited

Semi-automatic adjustable

PSP ramping

PSP burst

NXL full-automatic

Millennium
Custom ramping

Auto response

3-round burst

Full-automatic

The MAX ROF is completely adjustable from 5 to 30BPS or uncapped.

I've now fired about half a box through the gun (some more experimentation), but seem to have found the sweet spot for my gun at around 20BPS. In the course of that 1000 balls I have had no chops what so ever. The eye logic seems flawless.

Overall rating: 9.5/10 - Without a doubt, the best upgrade an e-cocker can get.

Is it worth $179? - damn straight it is!

So far pretty good - there are a lot of features built into the software that are specifically tailored to battery life improvement.

This is a bit of a guess, but I think you will get about 4 cases from one 9V - more if you play at lower ROFs and turn down some of the settings.

However, I've heard some reports that the board needs either a Duracell or an Energiser, anything less runs out pretty quick.

You can adjust it down - but that would be boring.

Wasn't the scenario dreams board unlimited ramping?? There was also the race frame that was uncapped and offered full auto.

I know that yakuza is by fare superior, but just wanted to point those out. Great post man!
