Review: The Good

This quick feed can be attached or removed from your hopper without having to tear apart the entire hopper. It makes maintenance easier in that respect.

For loading a pod into an empty hopper, it's fast and works well. I've only lost paint when the hopper still had some paint left (which is pretty typical anyway)

The Bad

This feed system doesn't really allow you to fill your hopper ahead of the game aside from carefully adding one ball at a time and ensuring the feed returns above the paint.

Can you get "close" to filling? Maybe. Actually getting it to standard capacity is what requires the special attention.

The other downside is the feed will often not fully reset after filling, allowing you to lose paint in-game. It's a hassle, but it can be prevented by double checking the feed prior to game on.

It solves some problems, but introduces new ones. I was hoping for something that doesn't really add a new problem.
Conclusion: It somewhat does what it says it does, though paint can escape rather easily and it is a pain to not be able to fill your hopper before the game starts, especially when you play scenarios and can be in the field for hours.

I'm probably going to try the virtue crown in the near future for comparison.

I give it a "6" because it mostly does what it should, but offers enough downsides to not be that great.
