lol. the stock board has like 14 modes on it. and you can change the rof cap on every mode.
as for op...
09 impulses are probably the best gun ive ever shot. going by poppets it is the best poppet that you can buy atm. (besides an ego 10? depending on preferance i guess... id take the impulse though) but even then, my impulse can keep up with and is more accurate then most of the 10s at my field. If youre going to compare a 1000 high end amazingly designed piece of machinery to a low end POS that is probably the most hated gun in paintball... then you have some problems. as for these kids with the leaking problems? if you actually read your manual and learn about your gun then you would know how to fix and prevent it.
Now as for SP going out of business... (This is my personal opinion)
Smart Parts is one of the few companies that still manufacture most of their guns in the United States(high labor costs)... with a few exceptions (Dye IM9 is the only one i can think of right now) now... with that being said.
I believe that Smart Parts is either being sold, or is being moved to China or some other foreign country for cheaper labor.
And if for some reason Smart Parts does go out of business, the first 2 things that somebody would buy would be the DLX designs and the New Impulse Design.
Personally i believe that the 09 impulse is one of the most hidden treasures in paintball. more people know about the vanguard creed then know about the 09 impulse. Smart Parts has a terrible reputation for having low quality guns like ions and Eos and Epiphanys. their only high end before the impulse being a shocker. and most people either only shoot shockers and hate shockers. I say get it. youll never regret it. itll out perform any other gun on the field (except maybe a luxe? idk never shot one)
Just some stuff for you to think about.
