Hello folks,

I am wondering if it would be good idea for me to add electric eye's to my Imagine? I will be buying a vlocity hopper for the marker and I am really thinging about a magentic trigger since my stock electric trigger can not keep up with my fingers. With the two add ons that I just mentioned would it be beneficial for a set of break-beam or bounce-beam eyes? Please advise. you guys have not steered my wrong once yet so I am very confident with you guys. Thanks,

Gravedigger

Breakbeam would be better than bouncebeam. Just getting the threads and holes done right http://www.spyder.tv/forums/showthread.php?t=1318 shunut is offering his services...

Thanks for the support big daddy. Breakbeam eyes are better than bouncebeam, at least when it comes to the eyes that are available for the Spyder. You will however need a new board to add eyes to your marker. Might I suggest Scenario Dream's T Board (http://www.scenariodreams.com/productpages/esp.htm). Its the best board out for the Spyder and Damon's customer service is awesome.

bigdaddy and shu are both on the money. TBoard with breakbeams is an excellent choice but you may want to pick up magnetic detents to handle the extra force from the hopper

Thank for the help so far guys. Iam still kind of new to everything and I amnot sure what you might be saying. So what are you meaning with magnetic detents and where could I get these? Thanks guys.

Magnetic detents allow you to adjust the amount of pressure that is put on the ball when it is in your breech.

see...the Imagine uses the "new styled" detents...a ball bearing on a spring, housed inside a plastic cover that is screwed to the side of the breech. (The "old styled" detents are rubber intimidator styled 'nubs' that are glued to the inside of the detent plate that is screwed to the outside of the breech.) Over time, the springs wear out. The magnetic ones are supposed to last longer and are adjustable...meaning, you can adjust the amount of force holding the ball in place. Force-fed hoppers need stronger detents.
