04 JMJ Featherlite Excaliber Board Options

I am looking to get back into playing , and looking to get back my old JMJ Featherlite back from an old friend that has never aired it up since purchasing it from me. The gun is completely stock so i know it is the original board in it, I am interested in know if this gun will be able to be upgraded to the current ramping settings. I have only played with this gun on semi and that was back in 04 when i first purchased it.

If the current board is not capable of today's ramping setting what would be the best board that you would suggest? And are parts still readily available?

I believe destructive customs can flash the was board to 2.0 which has ramping. If not the tadao esibu board is the newest board for it and from what I hear is top notch. Parts are still available through akalmp.com and destructive customs.com but they're site is down at the moment

Thank you i appreciate the response , i remember the popular thing at the time was the WAS board or tadao , just didnt have the need for it back then when semi was all i ever shot. Good to hear that they are still making parts / upgrade for these markers.

A Tadao board will have all of the current tournament modes. The Ebisu will work with the Excal and you can upload firmware updated through a USB cable. Some of the Musashi board will work referred to as combo boards, while the early ones are Viking only. These are a little cheaper, but you'll have to find them used and the board has to be sent in to have the firmware updated.

Unfortunately the WAS 2.0 firmware can only be used with Vikings so you're stuck with semi-only there. The Pandora board can be flashed for some ramping modes with the RMod code, but you need a VLink cable to do so and you also need the cable (and computer) to switch between modes.

Parts are still readily available; Destructive Customs is now the only authorized repair shop and have most anything you could need. There are also a number of highly experienced members of the forums here willing to help out and used parts can be found in the B/S/T forums.

Ps. You'll have to post some pictures of it when you get it back.
