Egg II / with Y-board
I bought this loader to compliment my new Pilot. I was trying to decide between this loader, or the Empire Reloader(a little cheaper). I got the Egg II because it got good reviews, and after I tried one at my local field I really liked it.
I like the design. It does not look like a hopper with a battery pack on it. It is fast, I don't have to worry about out shooting this loader (all of the new Egg II come with the Y-board). And if I do upgrade the Pilot more, or get a faster gun, you can upgrade the Egg II (with the Z-board) to match.
Now some reviews say this is a force feed loader, and some say it is not. This may be due to the way the balls are fed into the gun with the Egg II vs. the Halo. The Halo has a feed cone that is spring loaded, and the Egg II uses a flexible six fined wheel to feed the balls into the feed neck. However, It clearly says on the front of the package " The eVLution II Force Feed Loader".
The only thing to list here is the latch that holds the loader door open. When I first got the loader, the door would open easy enough. But to close it you had to force it hard. However, the fix for this is easy. Take a sharp knife or sandpaper, and take a little of the plastic off of the latch bump on the bottom of the loader. Be careful when you do this. You don't want to cut yourself, or take off too much material. Test the door operation as you go until you get it how you like. Other than that this loader works flawlessly.
As of yet I have had no problems with jamming, the case cracking, the eye not working, or the battery door coming open. As far as I am concerned, this is the fastest, most reliable loader for the price on the market today.
If you are looking for a loader that will feed 17-19 bps, looks good, reliable, and still upgradeable. Without having to spend over $100 dollars for a Halo. I would highly recommend the eVLution II.
