Review: I just got this loader in, one of the first 10 in Canada. This thing is so fast its unbelievable. Aside from the $185 price tag that i paid it was well worth it.

I watched the videos on you tube and if I didn't, I would have no idea how to take it apart. This is why it should come with a manual. But its fairly easy to figure out. Take out the bottom piece was a very ingenious idea, this makes cleaning so much easier its remarkable. You pull out the motor assembly and go at it, that's it!

Also the reverse button was a nice touch, no more ball jams. The mechanism of how it works is interesting as well. No eyes or sound, but by an actual "pulse" and works on resistance. The 2 modes are good to have since not a lot of people have that RF chip, or at least not yet.

The strength of the shell is quite remarkable as well. As soon as I got it, I stood on it, no cracking or breaking of any sort. The construction was very well done and this loader is truly the best out there. I also like how they shaved the feedneck down so it sits low, I'm sure it wouldn't be easy cutting through that material with a handsaw.

It is fairly lightweight compared to an Empire or Halo but is a little heavier than a Vlocity. But that's not to bad. Also I like the idea of how there is going to be a dual 9 volt pack coming out soon, that should cut down on the weight a little bit more. When I turned it on and went to non-RF mode, I noticed it pulse just like the guy in the video said.

Only downside really would be $35 for that chip, I understand its blue tooth, maybe that's why but I am quite sure it could go for less, even 25 or 30.
Conclusion: From the polycarbonate material, to the already cut down feedneck, to the easy of taking it apart, reverse button and all the other things I did not mention this loader comes out on top. Despite the price tag, to make a Halo or Empire have the same features this is cheaper. If you buy them new of course. I would recommend this loader to anyone who wants the best and only the best.

It is very true a Halo with a V35 board, speed wheel, suicide shells will perform the same or close to it. And if you buy it used it will be considerably cheaper. So i guess it all comes down to how bad you really want it.

But for me, I wanted the best, so I got it.
