Period of
Product Use:
3 months9 of 9 people found this review helpful.

2 years
Products Used:
Empire Reloader, VL200
Marker Setup: Stock 2k3 cocker w/ boomstick and a 98 custom w/ teardrop
Strengths: Holds more balls! Actually fits cocker feed neck!
Quieter than reloader.
Weaknesses: Sometimes it takes a shot to notice it has changed the way it is tilted.
Review: I got the TSA (LCD) version cause my reloader shells cracked off at the feed neck after 3 days of use. The TSA holds about 40 to 50 more balls than the reloader, and is about the same height and width, only slightly longer.

I like the menus on the lcd, you can set sensitivity, motor speed, duration of motor spinning, and a game timer. Although the accuracy of the shot counter isn't that good with my cocker, as firing would incriment the counter, and when the bolt comes forward it would incriment again sometimes and not others.

With the reloader and VL hoppers, the necks are too small and tape or paper is needed to "shim" the hopper into the cocker feed neck. With the tsa, this isn't needed as the neck is much thicker than the empire or VL.

Also, the plastic is much stiffer than the VL or Empire models, so hopefully it will last longer.

So far it has lasted very well, no cracks anywhere and the plastic seems much stronger than the 12V revvies and reloader.
Conclusion: Better hopper than the reloader, which from my understanding is better than a VL revvy.
Although it costs more, about 60usd for non lcd and 70usd for lcd version.
It doesn't crack, and thus is why I give it a 9, also it keeps up with my 6bps that I can get with my stock cocker right now ;)

"Sometimes it takes a shot to notice it has changed the way it is tilted"

That may just be an inability to stop if its feeding fast or if you were in the cold the electronics work a little slower (i live in NY right below Lake Ontario....I know cold)

i have a tsa, it does need a shot to start spinning the other way, even indoors.
