Products Used:
Gravity, egg, A-5
Marker Setup: ion, q lock, reloader b, minidrop, compressed air (4500/68)
Back-up Tippmann 98 custom pro, compressed air.
Strengths: Fast, popular, availability of parts. Can be fixed with Plastic Epoxy... kinda.
Weaknesses: Fragile
Review: This was my first reloader purchase. This was recommended by many people I know. My $150 that I paid for this item, lasted as about as long as 2 cases of paint on a cool summers day. During normal play, on a sod field the feed neck cracked. There was also internal cracks from stress throughout the whole unit. What a total waste of cash. I hear that these are stronger then an eggy. Well maybe so, but I want everyone to know, especially the manufacturer that these break way to easy.
Conclusion: It is almost in the trash, because it broke. What kills me as nobody is surprised at this. They say it is common. I give it a 2, because it worked for 2 cases of paint.

Edit: 7/16/2007 - Shell replaced with new OEM parts. Hard play has proved that my expereince might just have been unlucky. I still will keep the rating the same, but for style and price, I would purchase this again. (BTW this is fast. with no modifications, It shoot 23 balls a sec. with rechargable batteries. Impressive!)

Did you sand down the feedneck? Its a really thick feedneck on the loader making it Really hard for it to snap. If you sanded it down than its your fault it snapped. Also y didn't u just get a new one or a refund? Then you could have either A. bought a new one, or if you really hated it B. Buy a different hopper.
I'm not disputing because I don't know all of the facts behind the story... yet
