    I need a ocdc for my Lazer HP,,,I've narrowed it down to the "Director" and the "Masterchute" I'm leaning toward the "Director" because it would seem to be easier to control since it is operated by hand vs a high speed elec motor.
    Any suggestions based on EXPERIENCE ?

  2. You can control the masterchute very easily.

    You don't have any problems stopping the controller in an in-between position? It seems like it would be hard to do that with the high speed motor setup.
    I do like the idea of no lever to hang up on stuff,,or just be in your way........................

    Heres a good one, you can lift it off in one piece with two wing nuts.

    If you go with the director, before giving out payment info, insure that your OCDC is in stock, tested, and ready to ship. I ordered one for the machine below. I was told that it was ready to ship and should have it in 3-5 days. 2 weeks later after R&D testing it arrived.

    John what kind is yours? I want to get one but masterchute has very bad service. I called and emailed twice with no response. I would like to go with another one but don't know the right one.

    With the director you can put a catcher on without removing the OCDC. The other two mentioned will not allow this.
