I have one of these OLED boards in my DM7 and so far it's been fantastic. Instant on feature is wonderful, for sure.

Is it worth the cost? Maybe. There's not a thing really wrong with the stock board in the DM series, this is just a "nice to have" accessory rather than an upgrade, per se.

On the other hand, if you can afford it, grab one! The ease of use compared to counting blinking lights is fantastic, plus the extra modes are a lot of fun as well.

Cons: grips are a big hard, but that's not a huge deal. Really, just the cost of the board.

I MIGHT recommend this board for a more experienced scenario/woodsball or speedball player.

Will has done it again. Just when you think a board can't get easier to use or make a gun shoot faster in legal semi, then he proves you wrong.

The USB is easy to use and self explanatory. The OLED is crisp and easy to read even during a game.

Needless to say, I added some PbNation love to mine right away with the USB connection.

I don't love the Stinger grips, but I do love that the board comes with grips. I prefer softer grips like the stock DM and Ego grips and the Stinger ones are not soft at all. I modified them with the skateboard grip tape and they now work fine.

Cons: grips.
This board is one of the very best boards I've ever owned, and that is saying a lot. Ill put it this way, if/when I get a DM10 or NT I'll get another one of these boards for it the same day I order the new gun.
The package is very complete. It comes with the grips, rf harness adapter(no rf transmitter), and the usb cable for computer interface. Have to download the software from thier website.
The USB is awesome, no more hunting through settings or counting flashes. Off of the USB it has a super clear/bright OLED screen so you can easily see what your doing and what the curret setting is.
The OLED display and window is clear.
Battery usage is good, very responsive.

The only down side is the grips, they are very good looking, but they are also very slippery. No wraparound. No holes for UL trigger adjustment. There are also retarded spacers/pads that have to be used to seal the grips to the gripframe. The grips are clear acrylic type plastic with silk screening designs underneath. I plan on geting an acrylic lense and modding my stock stickies with a window.
I dont want the board's rating to suffer, but I'd give these grips a 1/5 maybe a 0/5, they are total crap if you actually play with the gun you install them on.
