AXE PRO or VIRTUE BOARD SWAP?

looking to get an AXE, but dont know which board to go with. I could get a stock Axe and do a virtue oled swap or just get the Axe pro with the redline already stock. anyone have any on field experience with either?

I think there was a thread about this a while back. Try doing a search.

But I'm pretty sure most people will say go with the Redline, Shockwave or stock.

The Redline is well made and really convenient.

An OLED board is nice, but I think the Shockwave board ($25-$30) has all the features you really need - change modes through trigger without opening, de-bounce, ramp settings, water resistence. Kudos to Empire for doing a great job with their new stock board.

The on/off button stopped working on my Mini optimus 1.2 board after getting wet. I e-mailed Kee and explained what happened. They sent me a new Shockwave board for free. These guys are awesome.

AXE PRO = $719(w/ REDLINE OLED)

AXE = $459(STOCK) + $184(VIRTUE OLED) = $653

Some what cheaper, but i dont wanna get the redline when both boards are about equal, unless the pro has another upgrade that im not noticing? really all i want is a OLED on the Axe, thats what kinda leaning me towards an Etek3 or Etek4(when they come out)

The Redline is worth the extra $50 for the convenience of installation alone. Believe me.

One of these thread pops up every once in a while.

Buy a redline and thank us later.

Don't go OLED, go cheap and buy yourself 4 cases of paint.

Installation is simple, of any board. Redline isn't worth the $$.

If you had one, you wouldn't be saying that. Why do you think it isn't worth it?

$200 for finger grooves, oled screen and easy installation, no thanks. I don't have the redline installed on my Axe but my teammate has the infamous Axe (with the Redline) and I have used it plenty. I just don't change modes enough to justify the purchase of the Redline I guess. I wouldn't mind checking out the Seventh Element oled board, pretty good price it seems.

this is very true, most tourneys i play dont allow you to switch up modes while in game play so OLED isnt needed. how is the shockwave board tho?
