I'm restoring a DM6 and I've been on the lookout for one of those boards just to scare the hell out of the local team at the field I normally play at.

I've been keeping an eye out for a Virtue or a Tadao. I've seen a couple for sale but I've been to cheap to just buy them.

I did a preorder and was offered one of the guns but I am ultimately decided to pass as I was hoping to get more clarification on what the luxe upgrades actually are and what the new electronics really mean. Right now its just marketing material that doesn't really explain much other than the gun and hopper talk to each other.

what could they upgrade on the gun/x other than cosmetic stuff?

literally the whole point of this virtue collab is so your gun matches your hopper, and that they talk to each other, which not a single person playing tournament paintball will use/rely on.

this is purely for recreational players willing to drop 2k on a setup.

there is no upgrades besides cosmetic ones and the board inside the marker.

how much clarification do you want? it comes with new fancy spire 4 that has a has the ability to communicate with the marker over the "ifi" which im guessing is a NFC or btle communication and the whole thing can talk to your smart computer via bluetooth for updates and programming. and if the marker and loader become unpaired the marker and loader revert to classic mode just like a spire3 on a luxe x of now. plus it tracks your shooting stats. its all written out for you in the lit.

i would have one on the way right now if the dollar was so crap. with exchange duty and taxs this thing would cost me just over 3k right now.

I’m not quite sure why you thought you needed to post you decided not to purchase one because you couldn’t be troubled to read. A reasonable person could have found out the aesthetics are revamped, your loader matches the marker, it has virtues board in it with Bluetooth connectivity to the spire 4 as well as any smart device which is dope for future app updates. I put a order in and will be receiving mine hopefully before my trip to asg Sunday.

I was thinking more along the lines of the true full auto (no 3 pulls) and response modes. Some boards also had a select fire which was really handing for switching from ramping back to semi if you needed to conserve paint (field allowed of course). I have played quite a few scenario games in the past where you could use pretty much whatever you wanted in the confines of a reasonable rate of fire cap. Obviously a good tournament lock feature is also important. Not practical in most situations, but with the money we spend on these things I feel like you should really have the option of doing whatever you want (backyard shooting is always fun).

mmmm i played a big game once and used 20 full auto the whole day. memories of shooting soo much paint it was disgusting mmmmmm.

but i do really like response mode, i havent used that in years. we only play true semi 10 now.

You mean using a paired phone via bluetooth from the pit or stands to adjust a gun that's on the field?

Wish my Blue tooth devices had that kind of range! I can't even leave 10m without my thermo probe from disconnecting from my phone when I smoke a pork butt on the pit.

I'm just hoping Virtue lets us know what the plan is long term. I would imagine they are coming out with boards/upgrades for the Cntrl, and regular X/other markers to use this same software..

Also as a request... Virtue.. please release some grips for the X separate for purchase. You have a customer haha..

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.
