Virtue board with QEV
Deadly Winds body kit
Speed of loader
Ease of breakdown for cleaning
The loader has no eyes so it is always running
I really like the color scheme for the body on this loader. I chose the digi camo. The finish has an almost waxy/armour feel to it and with its low profile looks very nice on my Tactical Ion. The downside and it has been mentioned prior is a relativly low capacity for balls about 3/4 of a pod. The lid is a bit stiff and snaps into place. I think a spring load and magnets would be a better approach. Since the loader uses no eyes it is constantly running and this can be a bit annoying to a woodsball or scenario player where the games tend to be longer and firefights more sporadic not to mention the stealth factor. For a speedball player I do not feel this would be much of an issue however as the name of the game is to throw alot of paint real quick. Breakdown of the hopper is very convinient as it requires depressing one plastic nubbin in the the shell to halve the body. The loader has no assembly screws to deal with or lose. I find sometimes a ball will hang up on the mentioned nubbin when in use. The loader getrs high marks from me for speed as it is indeed very fast with claims of 50+ bps which i feel is unachievable with any marker made but can easily handle 30bps for a finely tuned marker.
With a price range of 90.00 dollars for a basic shell and 140.00 for a custom shell the loader is a bit pricey. I think the R&D at Hard Corps could make a few tweaks to the loader and would have a stellar product. I will continue to use this loader and rest my Halo.
