Review: Ordered this thing from ActionVillage.com, I LOVE THAT PLACE.

It came to me in its nice little box and it came with...
Loader (obviously)
Two battery connectors (6 Bat and 4 bat)
Foam Spacer for 4 battery operation
Owners manual.

At first glance this thing was friggin amazing, I heard alot of good about it in the reviews so i took it out back shot about half a hopper out of it (didn't wanna waste TOO much paint). I personally think this thing is amazing. Setting the speed modes is just 1-2 button clicks away, and you can use either 4 or 6 batteries, 6 making for a faster loader, 4 making for a lighter loader... your choice, right out of the box!!!!!

I was skeptical about whether or not this thing would go crazy to the sound of other markers shooting around me at the field, so i held my breath and went to play. To my surprise, it had no problems at all, except for this dude dry firing his gun in the staging area, that set the loader off a bit but then again, shouldn't have left the loader on in the staging area... MY BAD!!!!! THe rip drive was amazing, I was able to chronograph my gun without even turning the loader on!

The only semi annoying thing about this loader is that the manual says you should turn it on BEFORE loading paint into it, but i find this completely annoying becuase the loader can be shaken, and the thing will just go crazy and pretty much feed every ball in the hopper (good for drop tests, though), so i recommend putting the loader on your gun, then putting paint in it, then turning the rip drive in reverse to unload any balls from the neck of it, this will make it so that when you DO have paint loaded in it and you DO turn it on, when the drive cone primes at start up you will have balls in the neck, without a jam. If this doesn't make sense comment so, and i'll try and make it clearer for you guys.

This is my first review.. ever.. so please don't flame me in the comments, maybe tell me a better more effective way to do it, but i don't need any name calling, thanks! hope this helps!

Conclusion: Overall i am very happy with this product... It is a mixture of simplicity, style, performance, and reliability right out of the box. I give it a 9, simply because it isn't necessarily perfected, probably not as much as the B2, but it is damn close, and worth every cent you spend on it, assuming your gun can even shoot fast enough to require it's services. Obviously if you have something like a mechanical gun, stick with a revvy... This loader would be a 9.5 if there was actually that rating on here. I gues a 9 will have to do!
