06-21-2007, 04:24 PM
I've gotten word that Kingman is finally sending out the new Tadao boards for distribution. For those of you not aware of the boards, here are some details.......
Spyder and Tadao have partnered for a Spyder board. This board was designed for the VS2/3 line of markers but will work in any of the many Spyder e-frames including the rocking trigger frame. The charging port may be off and some customization may be needed.
5 Modes(semi unlimited, semi 15bps, psp ramp, millennium ramp and 3 shot burst)
Adjustable trigger debounce (5 settings)
Forced shot feature
Battery status indicator
Tournament mode lock
Semi lock switch
Pretty sure I'll be getting one of these to do a review on in the near future. The MSRP on these are $99.95. There seems to be a lot of exciting activity going on at Kingman lately. Great for us, not so good for other companies just sitting around dorment doing nothing -

Meh, I never take mine out of semi, so I don't see any reason to upgrade from the stock board. It does look pretty nice though.

here's a link to buy the board http://www.sundragonpps.com/catalog/item/3373147/4725947.htm#image_1
$95 doesn't sound so bad either, and an upgrade chip on the way

I was able to get one. Here are a few pics of it and the well done packaging. I got it in on Monday here at the office and my first thoughts were wow this is nice packaging. I didn't open it till I got home.
Once I got home I took some pics of it along side with a Virtue Spyder board.
Sorry for the poor picture quality as I took these with my crackberry. My initial thoughts on the board are they are great for the VS line of markers as they are built to cater to this line. Other grip frames will have issues with the power port as well as the wiring harness connections are made for the VS so no 5 point molex connector on this puppy. I also noticed that my Virtue laser eyes did not work with this board as the virtue connector is a little smaller than stock. As a VS board it is a total drop in plug and play and go board. I will be toying with it this weekend some and will update my thoughts after a few games of play.

Okiee Doke. I played with my VS2 with Tadao/ Spyder board Saturday. I only got to play with it in Semi as it is a semi only field and it was working great. I loved the idea of not having to remove the battery in order to recharge it as the charging port was in perfect position to recharge the battery. I plan on using PSP or one of the other ramping modes some time this week just to see how my marker reacts to it. I have been hearing a lot of people having issues with recocking when in ramping modes so we will see how it goes.
