I have 4 friends who switched to it last year and swear by it. They say the key is to have 2 buttons, one to arm it and one to release it.

Best thing since sliced bread. Use the same button to arm and release. No need for another button

Just curious seems to me the best option is to try it. Might suit me, might not. My Son has the Z-Force in his roadster so we will report back later in the season.

Never used Z-Force but I'm a big believer in having options. Change button locations, hands, etc.

It forces you to renew your concentration rather than falling into the same routine. Would be worth a try if you fall into a slump, if nothing else.

^^ this exactly.. I don't have a k&r box, but do believe if your in a slump, change something to regain your focus..

Get the Zforce box... If you don't like the push/push, then you can switch back. With the Zforce box you have the option of going either way.

I will say this. It is the way to go. You are way more consistent and in my case faster... I wouldn't switch back for the world. It does take a little getting use to, but once you get it, it is the bomb...

Steve, I agree, the only way to know is to try it. Jeff "thinks" he likes but not enough hits yet.

My reason for asking, I have a Pro Cube at Kevin's for updating and if possible he will upgrade to the Z option he will do so.

I am adding a delay box to the Super 10 so I can play in the door car classes Smile [or play more effectively]

I talked with Steve Jr and intended to come see you but never made it. I will make a point to check you next time.

How much does it cost for the addition of Z-force if you don't mind me asking?

Is it really working? Based on lack of results may want to reconsider...

I do have it, and use it sometimes...If I go through a slump of hitting the tree I'll switch and it seems to help. I typically go back and forth a few times a year. Lately I've been hitting the tree pretty good with Z-force...but if I slump for a few races I won't hesitate to switch back.

Unimportant but interesting, I have to run more numbers in the box when pushing then letting go

FL.... seems like he bashes people for stuff all day, but when someone asked for "reviews" he gives the worst review, I have it but don't use it? what kind of review is that. No proven results or even opinions. I agree though, maybe the switch is needed

I've used it for about 5 years, I use it on full tree and pro tree-
I've only flinched on it once and I just pushed on a butterfly or something...
