Review: First time playing I had two balls break inside, during separate games but on the same day. I spent a total of forty minutes between these two occasions in order to clear it of paint. Initially I wasn't too upset but when I got home and realized the carousel had splintered on one side, I was a little concerned. Didn't have much trouble the second time I played at all but got home and while cleaning my equipment, noticed that the carousel was splintered on the opposite side. A few weeks later, one more trip to the field and I started having trouble. I had taken it apart to clean it sufficiently. When I went to reassemble it, I couldn't get the case back together. The little cylinder that sticks out of the bottom of the motor, that spins the carousel on the opposite side, was sticking out too far, so I pushed it back into place. I had taken apart my impeller (see vlocity jr manual pdf) and when I screwed it back on, gently mind you, the plastic of the impeller broke completely. Vlocity did send me the replacement impeller assembly or free but I'm just disappointed in the quality of the product. I would recommend saving up and getting a Dye Rotor or anything but the Vlocity Jr. Overall, this has been a disappointing product and once I can afford it, I'm gonna spring for the Rotor and this will become a backup. Save yourself the trouble and invest the money in a better hopper.
Conclusion: Kinda pretty.
Cheap construct.
Not worth the price.
Save up, spring for something a little better, probably save money in the long run.
