Hold on, never let go! Redz knows that it?s no fun to lose your hopper in the middle of a game. With a Cam-Lock installed on your marker, this calamity will never happen, no matter what hopper you use.Lever System ? Redz uses a cam-lever method of attaching a hopper to a marker. One snap of the lever and your hopper stays on for good - until you decide to take it off.
Maximum Strength ? Wickedly strong, aircraft-grade aluminum was used to make our Cam-Locks, making them very durable and light.
Tool-Less Adjustment ? Another first, Redz provides a heavily textured twist-knob that adjusts the tension on the lever to fit your hopper. Even with paint-soaked gloves, you can still adjust the Cam-Lock with just two fingers ? no tools needed!
Textured Feed ? A specially milled, textured surface inside the clamp itself adds extra ?bite? when you snap on your hopper, further securing it in place and adding more friction and resistance, just in case it tries to come loose.
All Brass Hinge ? Brass is a strong, self-lubricating metal, and we used it on the hinge to make opening and closing the lever a smooth action, and to keep the hinge strong, year after year of use.
Exhaust Port ? To prevent a paintball from blowing back into your feed-neck, we?ve included an exhaust port to let the air out and prevent a blender catastrophe in the middle of your game.
Fits the Ion, Impulse, Shocker, Nerve, Bushmaster, BKO, and Freestyle.
The Redz Cam-Lock Feed Neck is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

It can clamp...
Weak ass threads
Only comes in black
Bought this feedneck because my old one was very old and it stripped, and it was the only one my proshop had. $40 is way too much for a cruddy feedneck like this... CCM feednecks which are 50 times better are only $30.
Long story short, it stripped in ONE DAY OF PLAY. That's right, bought it brand new out of the box, and it stripped the next day. Just look at the picture, the threads are MINISCULE! I don't see how you can even use it... (I use a Halo B)
It is also very hard to screw the clamp very tight since it makes you use your fingers... and even for small crafty asian hands like me, it was really hard to get it tight, I can't imagine how big white guy hands would do it.
Do not buy this piece of crap, you will waste your money because it will strip very fast. Buy a CCM for $10 less, and it is 50 times more reliable. I'm giving it a 3 just because it can clamp...

Easy to install
A feedneck should be the first upgrade for anyone's stock ion. I chose this one, over the others because of its price and looks. Once I finished the grueling process of removing the stock feedneck, to my delight the cam-lock screwed right into place and hasn't budged since. My loader slid in nicely and the feedneck locked it in securely. It only takes two fingers to tighten the feedneck removing the hassle of tools. Out of all the feednecks I have used, the cam-lock held the loader the most secure.
I highly recomend this upgrade to any ion owner. The feedneck has given me no hassel and looks great!

Quick to connect
I got this right when i bought my ion cause everyone said the stock neck sucks. I have no complaints though, it holds the hopper on nice and tight and it is easily finger adjustable(the shocktech on my old spyder i needed a wrench to tighten enough for the egg). It looks nice with the low profile and keeps the hopper closer to the gun. Dont really see a need for getting another one unless threads wear out over time.
Real nice neck, good upgade, if you like how it looks i highly recommend

Everything... See Review
Ok, when my brother first bought this feedneck for his Ion he had high hopes for it but well... things didn't turn out so good. When he first received it he put it on his gun and then tried to put his hopper on.. all to no avail. The hopper was somehow to small to fit in the feedneck.. So we tried tightening the thing as tight as possible and still it wouldn't fit. I tried my brand new Empire B2 and it still wouldn't fit.. We finally got his hopper on it buy putting some paper in between the hopper and the feedneck. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS FEEDNECK TO ANYONE!!!!!
Stock Ion Feedneck. -Not clamping, could never get my loader to fit right.
Warrior Ion Feedneck. -Doesn't clamp as tight, feels less rugged, but cheaper.
-Strength of Hold
-Price? (see review)
-Appearance (see review)
The price of this feedneck isn't necessarily a weakness, because it has great value. It came in standard feedneck packaging, nothing special. It's pretty self-explanatory, so no manual needed. It was very simple to install, just lining it up right.
Once I had it installed, I found that the fit could be adjusted quite a bit. The screw to tighten the feedneck is very easy to turn, not abrasive as I thought it would be. Really it was an easy adjustment with no complications. For my Egg I tightened it up pretty well, and found that it actually has little ridges on the inside of the feedneck to hold it more securely, which works nicely. The camlock is very easy to open and close as well.
Overall performance-wise, this feedneck held my loader firmly in place once I had tightened to the right amount, even while full. This feedneck even features a few holes near the threads to reduce blowback. They don't affect strength at all.
As far as style/looks goes, this loader only comes in black, which is a bit of a damper on most people's stylings. It fit nicely with my color scheme, however, and has an overall nice finish, no scuffs or blemishes whatsoever. The only thing that is kind of a damper for me, is the Redz jewel set on the adjustment screw, it's of course, a Red Pepper emblem. This feedneck just feels tough, and kinda adds that feel to your marker's overall look.
In the end, this feedneck is a fantastic part as far as functionality and durability goes, but it really has nothing going for it in the style department. Depending on what colors you are into, it's really personal preference whether or not you should go with this feedneck or one that you feel fits your personal taste more.

I just put this new feedneck on my Ion today. A note, clear the threads out a little before you put this neck on. I would recommend a small amount of blue loctite to keep it in place. This neck holds my hoppers well and gives a nice grip. It was worth the 40$ I payed.
I recommend it to someone looking for a new feedneck.

works very well
not to expensive
I got this at my local pro shop after i broke my smart parts Q lock. the first time i used it i really liked it. My hopper stayed very tight in it. the hopper is very easy to put in and once it is in and you clamp it it stays in. when you are done it is prety easy to take it out. so far i have had no problems with it and i have used it three times so far
I would recomend this to any ion owner because it works Extremly well and looks good to.

It was Free
Clamp has too much play
I can't really complain when it comes to this product since I got it free with a promotion. It has a pretty low profile and is easy to install. The only issue I have with it is that the clamp has a lot of play and it doesn't hold my halo as tight as the hybrid that I use. I found it to be just a bit annoying. Good looking though, and not a bad choice, just not my favorite.
I have a lot of other Redz products and love them. If I were you, I would look into the Hybrid cam lock. Much better in my opinion. I'll use this as a back up or see if a friend needs it.

Great lock on hoppers, sleek looks
The little pepper fell off so much i lost it
I got this feedneck the day i got my ion a year ago. It is great and it has never loosened up on gripping a hopper. It looks sleek and the black color only is a little discouraging. The little pepper on the tightner is really a little bead that is glued on it. Mine fell off so many times cus of sliding that i just lost it recently. Overall, the performance of the redz camlock is superior to many other feednecks and it gets the job done , period.
Great feedneck, looks are OK, Overall better than most.
all black ion, redz feed neck, 68 3000psi carbon fiber tank with redz cover, and empire reloader b
Very tight grip makes marker look sharp
Ok I bought my ion and i already knew i needed a better feed neck, so I got the redz feed neck. The hard about putting this on was taking off the stock feed neck its on pretty tight so i took a little work. After that it was a snap to screw on this new new I just had to make sure that it didnt get cross threaded. Now that its on i love it it makes a nice tight grip to my hopper and wont let it go .
I trust redz parts a lot and recomend this product
