Review: Ok, So I got my Pilot and went down the the local PB store and felt like I had to switch out the feedneck. I liked the Hybrid because of the look and the quick release neck. Ya no tools! So I bought it for 35 buck and install was a snap on the spider, two screws and bam it went on. So I grabbed my Java gravity loader stuck it in and it needed to be tighten a little ( or so I thought).
I went to my garage and went thru all of my Allen wrenches metric and standard and not seem to fit right. So I went to my hex bit selection and after 20 min of trying all kinds I finally got a odd star bit to at least go in. So I tighten it a bit and then clamp it down, the hopper can still be pulled out pretty easy. Ok so I tighten it again. The little rubber / plastic grommet starts pushing it's way out, still won't lock down where I like it. Finally the grommet breaks and falls away and I tighten it all the way down, stick the grav feeder in, clamp it and it holds ok. At this point the clamp is screwed down where you have to use a tool to open it again. So much for tool less.
Yes I am trying just on a grav feeder atm, but If I paid 35 bucks for something I want it to work on what ever hopper I put in. So I called the store where I bought it from and they say well try some tape around it! Well I am sure Hybrid didn't have the intent to design a feedneck you have to use tape on. It seemed to fit the egg3 better but still had to use tools and I didnít like the fact it wouldn't hold a simple grav feeder.
So the store where I bought it from let me return it and I swaped it out with a CCM Heli-Clamp Feedneck, works much better on all feednecks.

Conclusion: great looking, just needs a REALLY fat feedneck or needs just a little more clamping power.
5 out of 10
