Shelf to motor contact
I have used almost every shell for the Halo/Empire platform of loaders and I believe the Powelyte shell to be the best. First, the shell is extremely durable and able to take shot after shot without breaking. The feedneck is very strong and I have yet to have any cracks in the shell. The Powerlyte takes all of the positives of the new magnetic lid design and takes away all of the problems associated with the Hybrid shell. You can change the board out without having to take the entire hopper apart with a trapdoor in the back of the loader. Of course, you can access the feed cup without taking the entire hopper apart as well. The angle of the lid increases the ability to load the hopper while still putting shots on your lane. The only downfall is the way the top shelf inside makes contact with the top of the motor drive shaft. This causes a grinding noise to be heard. I corrected this problem by superglueing two small o-rings on either side of the motor housing to prevent the motor drive shaft from making contact with the shelf. Worked life a charm!
Powerlye has always made some of the best products in the paintball world. I highly recommend this product and believe you won't be disappointed. I give this product a 9 and not a 10 only because of the motor to shelf contact that needs to be corrected by the user.
