Finally! I've been saying this forever.

"We can't police ROF!" "it's hard to stop cheaters!"

Not if you make a required board or flash.

Hope they are reliable, or they are going to have issues. Just saying.

It says in the PDF that they were tested for 2 years, and last year the pro division used them without issues.

Why, you need to be able to cheat to be competitive or are you just like all the whiners who complain about prizes yet never stood on a podium?

It monitors rof, but does it monitor trigger bounce?

Because the biggest problem is people who can't pull 15 bps using trigger bounce and programming to get to 15 bps.

That's awesome. Having statistics for each player would be awesome!
As this technology spreads I think it could be useful in PSP and even down to local fields. Since there will be hundreds of chips given out each event there will be quite a few in circulation.

I think this is a great step forward and hopefully will continue to grow. The gun technology is not improving much but we can improve technology in other areas of the game.

I have no dog in this race, as I'm not an NPPL player (too darn old!), but I do have a question. What does this chip do to battery life? The flyer states this thing sends out all kinds of data, and a signal doesn't generate on its own. Also, does this interfere with players using existing RF chips to tie their hopper to their gun?

True, but I have seen plenty of guns get tossed in NPPL for bounce. The refs try to do a good job checking them but yes plenty will still make it on to the field.

We had them every event last year and saw no difference in battery life.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
