Tested an Eggy II, owned a Ricochet Apache before getting this.

Review: Well, I got the Vlocity after deciding that my Ricochet Apache wasn't holding up anymore. I could outshoot it, and often it would blend paint. I went with the Vlocity over a Halo and a Pulse because I have seen quite a few Halo's go down, and Pulse was still in the lawsuit. Anyway, when I got it, I shot some paint through it on 15bps Ramp and Semi, then did a drop test on tension setting 4. It kept of with my fingers fine, and it only skipped twice during the ramp test, the first being very minor, the second when it was running low on paint like every loader does. I timed the drop test on setting 4, and it came out to 25bps, even though the batteries I was using weren't fresh. It felt very durable, and I even tried out the anti jam to see what it does by sticking my finger in the hopper to block the feeder. It kept spinning back and forward, which seemed like it would quickly shake the paintball out of the jam, and began feeding as soon as I stuck it out. Some people say that battery life is a problem, although I haven't used it enough to see. Now, the tension settings are fantastic. On Halo's and Reloader B's, a little spring is used, and it must be modified if you want it to apply different amounts of pressure. On the Pulse, I don't believe you can change the tension, but someone can correct me if I'm wrong. On the Vlocity, there are 8 settings, 1 being no tension, 2 being the lowest tension, and 8 being the highest. So far, I used it on 4. I like this since my fields don't always have the greatest paint, so I can adjust the tension so that none of the paintballs break in the hopper. On my old apache, while it fed with a decent speed, it would just punch perfect holes through paintballs due to the design. I no longer have this problem.
Conclusion: All in all, it is a great loader, and I think its one of the best. It beats many Halo's and Reloader B's out of the box, and has a better design in my opinion.
