Question OLED Modification

Has anyone done this mod on their 2.0? Is it worth it?

Can anyone post some pics I can see or give me more info about it?

Yes I think so, I'm sorry for not being more clear but I was unsure exactly what it is.

The features sound amazing... I just doubt they're worth it. I guess if you sold your 2.0 board to someone with a 1.0 you could cut some of the loss.

I also despise Virtue grips... Especially compared to the amazing Luxe grips.

I agree its honestly a waste. I have held a luxe that had the virtue oled board in it and had the grips and its kinda hard to see the screen through that material after awhile in the sun. Its just a waste because once you set your luxe up for your style of play (12.5 psp, or nppl semi capped at 15) there really isnt a need to keep messing with it. They say its worth it if you keep switching but people rarely do so its just a waste plus virtue grips are terrible and the stock ones are amazing

i personaly love the speaker on the board, but im sure it can annoy some ppl, or if you turn off the voice it would be a good thing to have, but i personally missed the voice when i turned it off.

I honestly thought the voice was pretty gimmicky at first... but I've come to realize it's pretty useful and possibly better than OLED screens. I definitely don't think it's worth spending money to swap the stock board out.

Thank you for giving me your opinions.

I generally like my screen on my ego and my geo, but will avoid this modification for my Luxe

A step backwards, really?

Some paintball "upgrades" are not really upgrades and are a waist of your money. The stock grips are sturdy and classy looking. The stock software tells you all results of your programing (and she sounds cute to boot). Talking is an advancement in evolution.

Why go backwards to the old stye of board that has features you may never use?

Honestly the only thing I believe it actually "upgrades" is in some of the older models when the joystick no longer functions properly. Also, as stated further up, if you need to constantly switch between firing modes, as you don't have to remove the grips for programming.

Snap screws eventually enlarge the grip screw holes and the grips become very loose. I've tried them in the past only to go back to the original fasteners. I didn't like that they would also not hold the grips tight to the frame and dirt and paint would get inside of the frame.

If you're constantly changing between modes snap screws are simply going to blow out your grips and cause you more issues anyways, dirt debris etc. and then you may eventually have to purchase a new board down the road anyways!

I love my Virtue board for the luxe, the grips felt fine to me.. the stock voice irritated me very quickly.
