Products Used:
VL Revolution w/ X-Board
VL eVLution 3
Tippmann Cyclone
Odyssey HALO B
Marker Setup: BT-4 Assault (+E-Grip, Dead On 98C Pro Seal)
Odyssey HALO B
J&J Ceramic 12"
Strengths: Good feed rate.
Weaknesses: Continuous feed is noisy and might blend paint.
Review: I found this new loader in Dick's Sporting Goods and was curious about 18bps for $30. You do get what you pay for. The hopper unloads fast, but lacks any sort of activation, essentially making it a force-feed Quantum. Once the raceway and feedneck are full, the flexible impeller continues to spin and jostles balls around in the hopper. Fragile paint may turn this into a blender and the running motor makes a lot of noise. As with the Quantum, players will likely find themselves deactivating the loader between engagements. There are far superior force-feed loaders at sub-$100 prices, including VL's eVLution 3 ($60) and the upcoming Eye-Force ($70).
Conclusion: VL delivers force-feed for the price of an agitator, but the lack of any activation severely limits this loader's effectiveness. Eyes would be a fantastic idea for this loader - So wait for the Eye-Force instead.

hey uh i think i can find out when it comes out but is the eye force a veiwloader?... and my personal preference would b spend the 25-30 extra dollars and buy an evolution II... even tho they arent that expensive any more, they get the job done

ya the eye force is a viewloader. I would get an Egg III, but I'm afraid its shell will crack b/c be friends egg III's shell cracked

eggy2 ive seen thrown and stuff but that really isnt good if the shell cracks on the 3... u sure it wasnt rough handling or a faulty loader?
