Ok, sigh. I get it. Someone send me theirs so I can do an unbiased review and I'll post it on here....

Oooo, sound activated - that's a BIG plus to me! Looks are meh, but hey - everyone thought the Vlocity was ugly when it first came out.

4 hours? I bet they've got a constant drain on the batteries that they haven't figured out yet.

A board is just an allocation of mini wires with stuff attached, generally the stuff is a microchip, an on/off switch, speed control, sensor and some variety of **** that stops the microchip from exploding like resistors etc. If it doesn't have a board, he may have a bunch of wires hooked into a microchip jack. Thick wires vs thin board wires would make the difference in the short run time. Also, it isn't velocity ugly where it grows on you... it's just ugly.

It's not sound activated......it runs continuously......it uses the the piece of plastic has a torque wheel and it conserves energy when the balls are fully loaded! Again it runs contiuously for just over 4 hours. You can make it last longer by turning it off between games. He flat out told us it wouldn't be good for us! I guess for speedball when you need 10 mins of all the speed you can get out of a hopper it'll do fine! Just to turn it off between matches to conserve the battery. The shell itself is ingenious!

not ugly, AWESOME. i would get one if i had $99, but i dont. . Sounds like a very good idea if they could find out what is draining the battery.

Ha ha, ya got meh! It's the new BT Rip Clip that's sound activated. I seem to be coagulating all that I've taken in in the past couple days. Speaking of BT, did you attend the KEE party on Friday? Ben Tippmann BBQ'd for everyone. Never met him before. He is one immense person and I don't mean just because his name is Tippy lol -

Since I got caught in a downpour last night and had to drive home wet as a sponge, I decided against going back today. Parking sucked because of the karate tourney at the same time. On the drive home, I expected to see Noah and the Arc. Last weekend was beautiful in Florida. This weekend bit teh bag with cloudy skies and rain. They should fire whoever chose this weekend for the Cup -

Dude Im in my early 20s & I still play with legos!!!!

Well the looks are meh, ahh, 50/50 but if it could do 30bps non stop for 4 hours with little to no drop off in speed sweet but over kill for me now. But speed ball, it should keep up with anything using any cheater mode.

I saw one at the field last friday... it looks/works like a lego.

Preforms good though. The guy had no complaints at all about it.
