As I posted in another thread, it is sensible to leave a little leeway for safety's sake - PACT timers aren't always accurately calibrated. A 0.5bps drop in rate of fire will have little effect on the actual number of balls in the air, but could stop you picking up a penalty for your marker shooting too fast.

If you are registered and you aren't going to be at Phoenix then you can send your marker into our Rhode Island office and get the board upgraded for $25.00 plus return shipping. If you wish to get this done then contact Gerry Bates on: (401) 2479061 or gerry.b@planeteclipse.com AFTER the Phonenix Open

This is a firmware upgrade for your board, so Planet need your board to install the new firmware on. Planet won't be sending out new boards to everyone.

great so we have to pay to get it updated virtue at least has free upgrades for life, just pay shipping which is fair so I don't have to pay for an update everytime the PSP changes the rof, or a new setting is needed for the price you pay for a ego you'd think they'd be willing to flash a board for free

If you're at any PSP event this year you can get your board updated completely free of charge, so to answer your statement "No" you don't "Have" to pay!

I'm a little disappointed about the $25 fee. I never would have expected that from Planet Eclipse.

There has always been a fee if you send the marker/board in to Planet - ever since the E-Blade days. Plus, that's cheaper than it used to be - pretty sure that it used to be $40. So there may be a charge, but it's less than before.

Plus, as stated, if you take your marker to an event, the upgrade is free, so the option is there for a free upgrade if that is what you want. After several upgrades (E-Blade, E2 E-Blade, '06 Ego and Ego7) carried out over several years, I have only ever once paid for an upgrade at an event - I think that was an E-Blade update after Planet had switched to only supporting the Ego.

I can understand why you may be disappointed at there being a charge when you look at companies like Virtue and Tadao offering free upgrades, but those companies have always used free upgrades as a selling point - Planet haven't, so you can't really hold them to another companies claims.

The other thing to remember, is that all but the very oldest '05 Ego firmware versions already have an adjustable rate of fire cap that goes down to 10bps, so almost all Egos are already tournament legal for the 2009 seaon. This isn't an essential upgrade, so if you can't get to a tournament, and don't want to pay to send your marker in, you really don't have to.

This upgrade is purely a matter of convenience, giving you presets for the 2009 season. However, you can just pick any of the PSP presets on your Ego, from any previous season, and then adjust the rate of fire setting to meet the 2009 regulations.

If this were an essential upgrade, then I wouldn't be surprised if Planet would have made it available free to everyone, but the fact is that it isn't essential, as your Ego can most likely already meet the new regulations - you just need to adjust a setting rather than pick a preset.

The default eye fault rate of fire cannot be adjusted by the user on the Ego7 firmware - v3.00, v3.10 or v3.20.
