Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month11 of 16 people found this review helpful.

3 months
Products Used:
VL and Revo
Marker Setup: JT 5.0 - nothing special no upgrades yet
Strengths: Can be used as distraction - the enemy will come to look for the noise.
Weaknesses: Too expensive for what it is, too noisy, only holds 140 balls
Review: First of all, it is not a real E-Loader, its a gravity based, agiated Hopper. Inside there is a single curved paddle, that is supposed to move the balls toward the feed.
It takes about 15-20 seconds for 100 balls but leaves considerable gaps.
... oh well, it fits pretty tight in my JT, the hatch is curved, so if you fill it to the top, you can still close it.
The hatch springs open and fits tights, wich is not that bad, but sometimes, it sits too tight and when you open it, you just use to much force (and might loose some paint). I guess, if it loosens over the time, there might be the possibility that it will open by itself. The switch is hard to move.Fot the last few balls, the swirling-thing might help, but so does shaking the VL.
Conclusion: As you noticed, I am still a noob (maybe not in theory, but that does not count much), so don't listen to me, on the other hand, most of the reviews are information for noobs anyway, so you get it from someone who knows what you are going through (everyone does tho, all of us have been noobs once).
My suggestions is, that you invest a few more bucks and buy at least Revo, or save some bucks and buy a standard VL, which is pretty much the same thing, without the noise.
If 5 is average and we declare the VL as standard, then I rate it 3, because of the uselessness and the comparing price. I won't rate it 1, because it does it's job more or less. IMO 1 would be the cheap $4,- loader with room for 50 balls, or something, that falls apart and kills my cat in the second I'd take it out of the box.

So long!
