If you are talking about the RF board for the magna it is already out. Otherwise I don't know what you mean.

Your review of it is a lot better than mine. I do think it would be a great hopper under the right conditions but I don't think it's the best for all situations. Granted my experience is somewhat limited as I only used it for one day but I'm not a fan of it at all. What turns me away from this hopper is the sound activation. It is RF capable but the RF chip for it looks fragile in the pics I've seen plus not every marker is RF capable, including all mechs and many electros. That's not a big deal if you get the sound activation tuned right, unless you play indoors. There's an underground field here that a friend and I went and played at. Everything gets amplified and echos inside limestone caves. And many times at this field you'll be in a bunker right next to someone. Needless to say this hopper was having trouble feeding my friends A1 Angel in semi auto. We both had trouble with it as we traded off a few times with his A1 and Darq Marq (Darq using a Pulse).

Hmm, I haven't used it extensively, but I have yet to find anything bad about it. I will post more after the next time I use it.

We refer to that as necroposting.

I took a disliking to this hopper over time simply because it didn't feel right on many markers. I got a prophecy now though (can't go wrong with an empire hopper IMO), and like it quite a bit.

Actually, for once, the Necropost was semi-helpful.
I was on the eBay and saw a hell of a deal. Magna and VLocity (both used, of course) for $61 shipped. The seller had great feedback, so I checked a couple forums (including this one) for reviews. I've always kinda wanted the Magna, but never wanted it enough to pay full price.

I'll post my own review once I get it and can use it some. Probably just as another post on here. Keep all the Magna info in one thread. I like that it sits back more, allowing for a lower profile when playing bunkers (And I already shoot a Pinokio, so it's not like it's that much different in size/placement.)

My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.
