    Which soldered mod chip for experienced installer?

    Hey all new member here and I'm looking for advice on a mod chip (the number 1 question of the day it seems). Anyway my Wii has a D2C2 DVD drive, and I'm looking for the absolute best option for a soldered mod chip. I prefer a soldered chip and I have plenty of experience installing chips in my other systems (PSX, PS2, Xbox, Gamecube) so there should be no problems. So far (based on information I have found here) I have narrowed it down to the Wiizard V2 and Wasabi V3 since from what people say they are the most stable chips out there. Would either one of those be good, or is there another chip I should consider? I want the most compatible and reliable chip I can get. Cost is not the issue since all the top end chips I've seen are similarly priced. I have heard (well, read) good things about the D2Sun chip but I've only been able to find the clipped version online. Is that the only way you can buy it? Is it as good as the Wiizard or Wasabi?

    Thanks in advance.

    For d2c2 the wasabi v3 is a very good chip For wiizard when it works its good but we've had a few issues with those on d2c2/d2e now.

    For d2c2 though the d2pro9 v3 should work very well as well, and the newer wiikey2 is proving itself already a worthy candidate.

    If youre soldering it in yourself the wiikey2 is probably your best bet. We sell the d2sun without clip if you are interested in it but IMO you're better off with the other chips mentioned.

    Thank you both for your input.

    After what you guys had to say and reading a little more about the chips I think I'll go with the Wasabi V3 chip. Seems like one of you guys likes pushing the D2Pro9 a lot and the other likes to push the D2sun, but since both of you hail the Wasabi as a great chip, and so does just about everyone else it seems, that sounds like a good choice.

    I'm a little apprehensive about the Wiikey 2 simply because it's so new to the scene and based on past experiences I don't think it's always a good choice to go with a brand new product, at least until it's been extensively tested and had all the bugs worked out. I'd rather dump my money into a tried & true product, so I think the Wasabi will be my best bet, even though it's $10 more.

    It's the weekend so I'll think about it a little more and do a bit more research and be ready to order one tomorrow or the next day.
