Best OLED for Reflex?

First off, are any of the OLED boards worth it for the Reflex? I've already ordered a TechT bolt and I figured why not go ahead and toss an OLED board in it if I plan on holding onto this gun for a while.

I've seen the APE Rampage..any others I should look at? And anyone have any positive/negative experience with them?

Not looking to break the bank.

Thanks,
VS

No, unless you change your board settings everyday.... so no.

You should just set your board and leave it so it's a waste of money. Not to mention, if you do need to change it, the stock board is plenty easy.

Play both PSP and NPPL...does that clarify the issue at all? Would be nice to see the settings instead of taking the grips off.

7th Element for DM ul frame if you need to get a new board. Works just like standard virtue board but cheaper. OLEDS are not worth the money.

if you have $35 > 7th Element

i have the APE rampage OLED in my 11 reflex. i was able to drop my dwell down to 11ms and my ABS to 1ms. most of my shots are within 2-3fps of each other.

Thinking I'm just going to splurge and buy a APE Rampage.

The Ape OLED is the best there is. I just bought one for my Reflex and it's super easy to use. I was messing with dwell and had it set to 10 in 60 degree weather and the gun shot fine, but the next day it was in the 40's and in the middle of the game the gun was having some serious FSDO problems once it cooled down to air temperature. I stopped mid game and in seconds had my dwell set to 16 and was back in the fray.

I have a virtue oled, it really isnt necessary, just stick with stock if it has the mode you need, and if it doesnt, I believe Tadao will flash your stock board.

I have the APE OlED and really like it. dont have anything to say bad about it except the grips are plastic. I have never had trouble with not being able to grip them though. and if it really bothered you, you can get grips made at stinger paintball if i remember correctly

Update...
I now have 3 APE boards and they all work identically and perfectly. They are by far the best after market OLED board there is. I just wish I could get them for my Macdev guns! Initially I didn't like the acrylic grips, but you get used to them and then they don't matter. I love turning on the gun and it beeps at you. I don't have to try shading an LED from bright sunlight so see if the gun turned on. That and the OLED is bright enough to read in sunlight.

Look up chuckasaurus on the nation. He can get you APE boards at cost. I bought mine from him. Stand up guy, very responsive. Everything arrived new and in perfect condition straight from the factory.

skip the 7E board! Apes are far better. PM chuckasaurus on here. He sells the APE boards at cost or $80. He is where I bought the 3 boards I have.

honestly unless u plan to play tourny games u really dont need an oled board! if u have to have an oled board, they all honestly work the same! i own an aoe board and yeah they give u the most options of any board on the market but u cant even use all the options in a game. as far as oled is conserned, they all work the same! the 7th element has bluetooth capability, ape has more personal and bps settings, and virtue has the same. its all just preference. i own ape boards on my mini, ion, and rail. i also own virtue boards on my etek and slg. i really dont see a difference other than easier settups on the screen verses the led lighting system.

i got an APE on my 13 reflex and it works great. if you don't like flipping switches to mess around with settings and taking off one side of your grip, then you should look into an APE board. it really makes it easier...although flipping the switches isn't very hard to do either...and like others said...you won't need to mess with setting that much. atleast i don't.
