The Etek is always capped at 15 with the eyes off. Just turn your eyes on (for semi 1) and you have an uncapped rate of fire.

Just goldwave yourself shooting and you will know how fast you are shooting. Youare shooting "like" 12 bps doesn't mean much. That is if your field does not have a big red chrony that tells bps. When I started I was sure I had a 12 bps mech cocker. I goldwaved at 10. 'nuff said.

i recommend you to reset the board. Possibly the previous owner of the marker changed the ball detection time and the dwell settings. Adjust the trigger set up the way you like it , fresh battery and test the marker again. Test the marker with a different hopper too

open up ur grips, put the gun into program mode by holding the trigger and turning the gun on. inside the frame on the left of the board there will be a red button hold that down until all ur LED's flash blue. then turn off ur gun and u reset the board.

open up the right grip and press and hold on the red button(also known as the lock button) the "E"G"O" will repetedly flash blue witch means it has been restored to factory default settings.

also are you shooting it with just the battery in? (as in you pull the trigger and you just hear the clicking of the noid) or are you really shooting it with paint and air.



looks like NaStY3 got to it before me.. owell i'll leave it ne ways

well than like probert said than just restart the board to factory settings. if that doesnt work than..... my only other guess would be that ur fingers arnt shooting up to 15bps. (but i'm sure thats not the case)

wrong, its only capped in ramp modes, & with the eyes off(for obvious reasons)
Semi1 is uncapped, its as fast as you can load & pull the trigger.

Make sure the battery is good.
What kind of loader are you using?
Are the eyes installed properly or dirty?

I've seen some virtue boards eye logic get messed up & only shoot 12 with the eyes on. But it was specific to their software. It shouldn't really happen with the stock board.
