Board question

Ummm yeah so I used a Cyborg this weekend. I was just wondering how that board is considered tourny legal.... like it was one pull one shot, until I walked the trigger... it seemed to ramp.... lots. Anyways I'm just curious if it will pass nppl, psp chrono judges.

They ramp.

The board is not legal in my book so I no longer shoot one. I liked it a lot though, super light, good construction, nice company.

Sorry guys, those of you that weren't pulling 20bps on other markers before just haven't become super finger walking machines overnight. Don't fool yourself, its the marker adding shots.

Ditangquan knows his stuff. This makes me leary as I was planning on buying one once my financial situation takes a turn for the better.

I wonder what the official word is, and hopefully it's positive.

And I will also add, I DID NOT adjust the Cyborg to the higher setting which would probably stop the ramping.

So if you have one or are thinking of buying one, DO buy it, you'll love it! Its a great marker.

Oh did I say how consistent it was? Extremely consistent. Very efficient. So it has great features. Please don't get me wrong from a couple of comments, I really liked this marker, see my review.

I don't know...if it ramps, then pretty much every other gun out there ramps. WAS Timmy's DM4's whatever...if one does, they all do. I personally don't think it does though...

How did you come to that conclusion?

Just cuz it shoots about as fast, or slow as any other gun out there that I have shot, it feels no different. They all rip pretty good. I know very scientific eh? LOL. Seriously, just my personal opinion.

yep doesn't shoot much differently in speed to my old Angel, both are very quick, but neither shot faster than my fingers.

Ditangquan you said you have shot you Viking faster than 18-19bps like you did on your Cyborg vid. Your saying you did that and there was no bounce and your Viking wasn't adding shots? Were you raking the trigger?

It is Not the board its the way you set the trigger. You are probably causing mechanical bounce which will happen on any trigger if you set it a certain way ...

No not, 20, but on his viking/speed comparo vid I thought he hit either 16 or 17. And I believe that was with the old nelson board.

I miss my Excal soo much I ordered an Immortal!!!

Anyway, #199 ramps. This is the marker ditangquan traded to me and I can confirm that it does. This is not bounce, I know what bounce feels like.
