Review: I was a little scepticle, and thought that it was super ugly. However, when I thought it over, I decided I'd give it a chance anyways, becuase I don't play much, and can't shoot extremly fast - I thought it would be a good purchase. So I bought it.

Then 2 weeks later, it finnaly arrived. I opend it up, and hte shell casing was nearly falling off, so I had to tighten the screws. Also, The instructions were impossible to read (really bad printer and really small writing), but luckily it was a simple intalation. The feedneck was really small, and didnt fit into my feedneck verywell - this is tippy 98 too. Anyways, the thing was as ugly as anything (not a weekness, you could tell from the photos).

The next day I went to the field to play a game. I was using comp air, and brand new ProStar paint. I opend it up and noticed that the lid didn't have a spring, and that it didn't close very tightly... I was bigging to get ticked. Then, when i dry fired, I noticed that the lip didn't move anything close to how it did in the vid on the TruboLoader website. I thought it might be the RT for some reason, so I disabled it (so all the air went to the loader). Still, practically nothing.

I figured i might as well try it out, and so I loaded it up, making sure not to go passed the fill line. Out on the field, the thing was worse then a gravity feed. It chopped balls, and gave dry fires like crazy. I constatly was cleaning out the gun, and it never got better.
Conclusion: If you are a noob, and only play never times a month, buy it. Otherwise, pay the extra 2 bucks for batteries now and then for a good loader.

Im giving it a 5 because it sucked, but it wasnt the optimal weather conditions (cold), and mine might have just been bad.
