      Retroglow FTW!

      When I first found out about handheld legends and the Retroglow RGB flex boards, I know I just had to get them in all my handheld systems.

      Started with the DS Lite and omg this is amazing !

      Amazing controls ! Amazing lighting ! Could not be happier !

      The install was very easy as well.

      Ds lite retroglow

      Works great, easy to hook up. Was not able to get it work in conjunction with helders macro amp mod, just FYI for those wondering.

      Fantastic mod

      I installed this mod in a Macro build. This mod looks great and isn’t particularly difficult to install thanks to the wiki instructions and tutorial video. A few of the solder points are especially small though and may be tricky for people. Figuring out the settings can be tricky at first. Also, including some documentation on the Macro feature of the mod in the wiki would be great. It’s labeled on the board but it might not be obvious to inexperienced modders how to use it.

      This mod is very rewarding when finished. The colors and brightness are just AMAZING :) Install isn't too hard as well.
