Paintball
Experience:
3 months
Marker Setup: Kingman Spyder TL-R with a 12" J&J Ceramic barrel, a Hybrid Hedloc 2 clamping feedneck, and a 3000 psi 48 cu Pure Energy HPA tank. I also carry an Armotech Zeus G1.
Strengths: Lower profile than stock feedneck.
Weaknesses: Does not hold stock VL200 loader well without masking tape.
Review: The Hybrid Hedloc 2 clamping feed neck replaces the stock spyder feedneck. Your hopper inserts directly into the feedneck, and you then clamp tight. This is supposed to secure your hopper to your marker.

The problem with the Hedlock 2 is it does not fit the VL200 very well. It holds it but it rotates, and can pop out. Some masking tape around the VL200's neck completely fixes the problem, but is somewhat of a hassel to do each time I play. Once the hopper was taped, it did not move at all (think created some what of a problem when it was time to take the hopper off).

The feedneck may work better with a hopper with a bigger neck than the VL200 but I cannot confirm that.
Conclusion: The Hybrid Hedloc 2 works as long as your hopper's neck is large enough (and grippy enough). If not you may have to use some masking tape.
