Ion XE "Practice" mode

Hey guys, probably some of you know that some markers have a practice mode. Basically in this mode you shoot a small amount of air to makes your marker to function.
The idea is to practice in your home without killing your girlfriend of a hart attack or making your pet to hate you.
If any one knows how to do this, please let me know.

Cheers

the only way you can do it with an Ion XE is to get a new board.

exactly. Lower the dwell to the point that you only get the puffs of air. That's basically what practice modes do anyways.

I suppose there are ways around everything, however aftermarket boards with practice mode can tell you how many pulls per second and sustained pulls per second.

True, but if you're just looking to practice walking or snap shooting without the need to see what your max and average pps is this way is cheap and easy.
