Review: I was very eager to purchase this loader, based on the reviews and the fact that "DYE" is well-known for it's quality product. At the same time, I was apprehensive since this was DYE's first version and would undoubtedly have some issues. At a cost of $149, I expected that DYE went all-out on this loader so I took a chance.

Well, I was very impressed with I first removed it from the box. It felt solid and the material used could obviously withstand a lot of abuse. It was easy to disassemble and required no tools whatsoever, allowing any player to break it down mid-game if necessary.

Loading:
The mouth of the loader is smaller than others and a fast reload on the field will definitely result in the loss of a high number of balls. Acceptable, but not desired since the loader (as-is) only accepts up to 200 balls.

Windows:
Useless, unless you hold the loader up toward the sun and project light through the windows.

Speed:
Amazingly fast! A pure stream of balls unload with this loader.

Jamming:
Even with some high-quality paint, the loader jammed my DM6 several times. The loader exerts a lot of pressure on the balls in the neck and this might have played a factor. When I tried to use the anti-jam slide mechanism, it failed miserably numerous times. I found that I had to power down the unit, shake the loader and/or turn it over to move the ant-jam slide switch.

Popcorn tendancies:
This loader uses a spring-loaded floor plate that keeps popcorning to a minimum. No complaints, they did a good job at limiting this problem.

Conclusion: Overall, not a bad loader, but I quickly returned it to the store for a refund. By looking at the display case, it appeared as though I was not the only one that decided to get my money back!!!
