btw, I tried searching and got 20 pages of people selling them, just no explanations and personal experience posts.
Funny that you ask because a few months ago I did this very search and asked the various manufacturers a lot of detailed questions about their products and so I have some insight into this very subject.
Virtue board for your rotor...waste of money! First off you need a virtue board in your gun and then you need RF modules in the gun and rotor and then the virtue rotor board. Then the dejam feature ONLY works if you are using the rotor on your gun that has the virtue board. On anything else it acts like a stock rotor. IMHO...massive waste of money IF you can even do it with your gun!
Virtue Soft Arm...too expensive for a piece of plastic, but they work! I have 2 rotors. One with and one without the virtue arm. I play rec PB on a budget and so I tend to buy cheap paint which means that my rotors tend to jam occasionally. I used to get periodic jams on which ever rotor I was using. After installing the virtue soft arm on the one rotor I NEVER get jams anymore. IMHO...worth it! This is by far the cheapest and best dejam choice there is for rotors.
SEED board...best board for the rotor there is right now except the stock board. They work independently of the gun, need no RF link and auto dejam. They have a sensor on the board that detects gun recoil, and another that detects ball stack tension. If the gun fires and the ball stack tension doesn't drop and then go back up the board auto dejams since the ball stack is jammed. It works, but I think they are like $65 so kind of expensive.
Seventh element board...It works like the virtue board, but the RF function is built into the rotor board. You have to buy a separate RF board for your 7E board if there is one for your gun. Again like the virtue system, you need a 7E board in your gun for the dejam feature to work in the rotor board. Otherwise it works just like a regular rotor. IMHO...A waste of money.
