Early versions had only semi. Later board versions had 3 modes.
There's also a tourney lock on the 3-mode versions...
Formerly known here as druidsdecendant (can't post/lost password/mods don't answer PMs anymore...long story) but known elsewhere as "druid". ALL my old feedback found HERE, HERE and THIS is my new feedback for here.
If i remember correctly to turn tourney mode on and off you unhook the battery and hold the trigger in and hook battery back up. You might have gotten lucky and with them being rentals they might have been locked....good luck
