Reloader B Diamond smoke shell w/ speedfeed
Crossfire LP 68/4500
Well the first thing I will point out is everyone says this loader is ugly, but really its just different looking while everyone is used to the sleek look of the Reloaders and Halo's. Everyone says the Pulse looks great, but from the back it is the exact same as the Vlocity. That being said lets move on.
The Vlocity is the lightest high-end loader on the market, next to the Vlocity Jr. Big points in my book for that. The Vlocity is a break beam eye system, similar to Eggs, but far more reliable. It also is a force feed like the pulse that after 15 seconds of inactivity it puts force on the balls to get them out of the gate sooner. Im not 100% on this but I believe some versions have 2 eyes, some have 4, or you can upgrade to 4, or something of the sort, I never really looked into it. Someone correct me if Im wrong please. The Vlocity is in fact half an inch taller than Reloaders and Halo's, but slightly shorter. It is quite a bit lighter because of the 2 9v compared to 6 AA. It has a dip switch like the eggs instead of a button. My one big gripe about it is that the motor is very powerful and when its force feeding single balls it tends to jerk around a bit. Compared to a Reloader B heres the pros and cons:
More tension modes
Bigger ball capacity
Lid is tough to open
Lid is in somewhat of an awkward position, new versions have angled lid
Equally difficult to take apart(numerous screws)
The Vlocity is a good hopper on the market right now, I use it as my backup currently or if it rains I just swap my Reloader with speedfeed for my Vlocity and no troubles. I dislike the dipswitch as if by the off chance paint gets in the its a pain to clean. I find the Vlocity to be a great front player loader as it has a tough lid, very light, and requires less reloading which all front players know is tough to do sometimes lying in the snake.
This is a good hopper, a few shortcomings make it not perfect, but its a good match for anything else out there, except maybe the Pulse. 9
