does the star frame make it lighter like the ul frame does and if i have a virtue or any other board is it good to switch the boards in them?

thanx

it does make it lighter no doubt but the board in it is really good so there really isnt a need to change the board but personal preference

i had the same question and i actually saw the brown frame in person. on the website it looked on the gold side, but in person it was actaully a dark brown. i went with the black frame if that helps you at all.

Little update to the previous review I did earlier

The earlier review:

"Just got the star frame for my Etek 2.

- Better board than stock
- Better trigger than stock
- QEV
- Makes your gun higher (yes, stock Etek 2 frame sits lower)
- Didn't notice any difference in weight.
- Actually the frame isn't any skinnier than stock. Only the grips are. You can buy those separately from PE.

I really don't know, if I actually like my Etek 2 better with stock or star frame. The feel of the gun is better with stock (sits lower, more like extension to your arm). But star frame has really nice trigger and no need to upgrade board. I really don't know, if QEV makes a lot of difference. I'll see that, when I get the change to shoot the gun properly with QEV installed."

Updates and questions:

- Gun seems to shoot better with QEV, altough it sounds louder with QEV installed (machine gun ) or the sound signature is just different. But Etek sounds "softer" without QEV. Gun feels really great in your hands with star frame installed .

- Does dwell need adjusting after QEV installed?

you don't have to adjust the dwell. honestly, I've had mine for 3 weeks now and with stock internals I've just kept the settings at factory stock and worked on setting the trigger.

i just bought the star frame and was messing with the settings and every time i change the settings i try to see how fast i can shoot and it always says it peaks at 10bps even when im on ramping. then i go back into settings to make sure and it says im set at 15bps. am i not setting this right? i read the manual. i can shoot over 10bps so its not that

are your eyes on and the bolt blocking the eyes? cause that would make the gun cap itself.
