Review: Ok, I just made my first "test" of my new Vlocity "Select Force" hopper, here's how it went and my impressions.

First, seems small sitting on the marker. Combine this with my Ego7's already small size and a light tank, it's like holding a pencil. (Well, ok, not that small, but still)

Second, with the "Select Force" feature, you are able to control how much force the Vlocity uses/pushes against the stack. Obviously, the more force used, the more power drain from the batteries, but the more speed, so it's a trade off.

I started with a Force setting of 2, which is the lowest force applied (without have none applied), Ego7 on unlimited Ramp.
Max Rof (peak) achieved was 26bps. Average was 20. Not too bad! That's 2bps (peak) faster than my Reloader B (stock) .

Now, knowing that anything over 15bps is going to be useless, I put the force selector on "zero" (no force applied to the stack) and let it rip again. Max Rof (peak was 21) and average was 18.
It is durable, they say ooo the feedneck is so brittle, but I have used it in all of our practices and used in in 5 tourny's so far and it hasn't messed up or done anything wrong. I have dove into bunkers and rammed it into the ground and it has always managed to stay on and not break the feed neck.
So, I'll leave it at that.
Conclusion: You should really buy one if you have the 130. It is the best hopper I have ever had. Great for any gun you want to throw it on.
