Default Stage 4 Spec sheet is up and out!!

Ion Owners can now rejoice!!!

Multiple Purchasing Options.

$129.99 MAC noid
http://www.buyluckypaintball.com/servlet/Detail?no=196
$99.99 Stock Noid http://www.buyluckypaintball.com/servlet/Detail?no=195
$79.99 JUST BOARD http://www.buyluckypaintball.com/servlet/Detail?no=194


Board features:
Easily adapts for stock solenoid or Lucky's mac solenoid conversion kit.
Easily adapts for use with a membrane pad.
Full spectrum on LED.
4 dip switch bank for easy programing

Mac solenoid conversion:
Easy drop in install.
Lucky's unique banjo makes this clean and easy.
1/2 the power is needed to drive this solenoid, giving you longer battery life.
Faster cycling rate gives you a higher top end. Currently this kit makes the Ion have the highest top end available


according to "spitfirejohn" on Lucy Forum, a response to Prea's comment (about the MAC being 'not a great advantage over a stock noid)

and I quote:

"The mac noid we use is a very recent creation by one of the most reputable solenoid manufacturers in the world.
It is much more durable than the SP noid, so it has a longer working life before it needs to be replaced.
It is more tolerant to dirty air. No need to clean out the noid every few months if your air supply isnt perfectly clean.
It opens faster, so the dwell can be set lower, which results in a lower cycle time, meaning better air efficiency and a higher ROF.
It uses less battery power for each shot.
It will give you less troubles when your battery is running low.
It has a higher flow than the stock solenoid.
It allows for a neater internal setup.

And, as correctly pointed out already, the barbs arent plastic."








teh shecks!!

lawlz, I like how Virtue is referred to as ****** on the chart.

PBN FTW.

Only thing that sticks out to me is Training Mode. I wish everyone would impliment this. I get tired of adjusting the dwell to do "training".

because they used fraudulent methods to sell their products by turning others away from their competitors. They were caught creating multiple usernames under the same IP address, to which they created false 'complaints' about other boards and their manufacturers. They did it on PBReview also and are banned from there as well.

They may make a decent board...but that doesn't exonerate them from being LOSERS for using deceptive business practices.

Yeah, they aren't referred to as "******", its just that Virtue is in the swear filter, and comes up as a link to the page on PBN explaining it. They used to advertise hardcore on PBN too...

good merchandise means nothing when you have shady business practices. ask the guy running Hennessey performance engineering.

so wait... down grade to a noid that has smaller parts and needs cleaning more often when the gun cant even max the stock noid? which has 3 parts to replace/clean..... the mac noid in question will have more problems. they claim it wont, but because it is a 4 way noid with blocked passage for 3 way conversion (thats what it is) it will build up muck in the 4th blocked passage.

How are you 'down-grading' when the noid cycles faster than the stock noid, is higher flowing and opens/closes (dwell) faster? Oh...and uses less power?? Metal barbs are a plus over plastic on ANY noid...

...the only 'muck' it will build is what the user puts in it...oil, grease (from over greasing) and crud from CO2...which I believe gets vented at the QEV anyway...

So here's the lesson for the day....
  1. Don't use oil because the Ion doesn't use it AT ALL
  2. Don't overgrease your reg because, well, that's just stupid
  3. Install a QEV so it acts like the relief valve/grease trap that it's supposed to act like
  4. use HPA instead of CO2
that's a tough one
