Review: Pro's

I've always wanted an Automag set up with the warp feed. The name itself makes it sound like a ultra high speed loader.

The warp feed brings your hopper to the side making it harder for those hopper aiming lovers. This puts the weight into the mid section of the gun making it nicer for those snap shots. The hopper feed consistently and I have no issues there.

Well if you think your current agitating hopper is slow, wait until you add the Warp Feed onto it. It will provide better efficiency to your hopper, turning it into a force feeding, and a quick loading machine.

It is simple to mount, looks very nice (for you complicated mechanic lovers), the mechanism is pretty cool to watch as it works. Best of all, you will turn heads when you go into a field with it.

Con's

It lacks an on/off switch draining out the best of the battery life. I used my skills in my other hobbies and made a on off switch for it that mounts right on the back of the warpfeed. (Problem addressed and problem fixed!)

It shifts weight to one side. It takes a while to get used to. Not only are you adding almost 1 lb, but when you add that revvy with two 9v and about 180 paintballs, it starts to add up. All it takes is some time to practice and you will find the sweet spot. (Problem fixed!)

If you have a revvy, the hose will get in the way of a left power feed tube. (If your a right, vice versa). The problem was fixed by dremeling out two holes (top and bottom) and making a passageway for the tube. This takes a while to make it look very neat. (took me about 30 minutes to perfectly line, and dremel precisely). After you do this, it looks so much better because it will be a lot more compact.

JAMS! Out of the two cases of paint I ripped through this setup, I had it jam a few times with the 90* elbow that was included in the package. You have to adjust the hose length and the elbow so that a certain amount of paintballs and a certain amount of length makes the paintballs fit nice and flush with the given space. Without proper measuring and adjusting, you will get the occasional jams.

Also speed... When I first got it, it seemed like the wheel was spinning too slow for 18-20 bps... I personally think if they made it 12v, it will be more efficient and it will make any revvy shoot like it was a halo. (of course, this thing might not match a halo but close to it). 12volt modís have been done and I think these modís should come standard with the package. (Just my .02 cents)
Conclusion: Overall, the warp feed is simply amazing. As I said, I always wanted an Automag with the warp feed so it may be my personal preference that I would choose this set up over the halo. Few pro's and con's but it does very well for the money. (I paid $50.00). Takes time to adjust to it, but because it does what it is suppose to, I give it a flat 10, nothing higher, or lower.
