Vendetta Products is proud to announce another addition to the great line of products. The trapdoor is constructed from a durable softer ABS plastic. The Trapdoor makes it possible to load your hopper while keeping your eye on the opponents. The trapdoor installs very easily on any Halo B/Reloader B/DXS Pulse hoppers. This new system allows you to quickly fill your hopper without wasting the time of opening or closing the lid on your hopper.
* Ez loading of paintballs
* User-friendly one-handed operation
* Six fingers to ensure paintballs do not spill
* Lightweight soft ABS plastic
* Halo B loaders (Non-magnetic lid)
* Reloader B loaders (Non-magnetic lid)
* DXS Pulse loaders
The Vendetta Halo/Reloader B/Pulse Trap Door is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Id been wanting to try out one of these types of products for one time. One day i was at the field and one of my friends had one that they didnt want, 2 bucks later i got it. I took it home, and proceeded to load pod after pod through it to ensure it was broken in. Once it was, it worked like a charm, with no lost balls and faster reloading. My main problem with it is being able to trust it, after opening and closing lids for 8 years, its hard to believe your balls will just fall right through, but as long as you have the pod slightly above the hopper(if you try to jam it in, they wont feed right)they should go through, and not come out. I never had problems getting dirt in, but paint is a maybe.
Great product, i dont try to give 10s but its so simple, what are the flaws?

None - this was the first speed feed or variation of that I have used.
Large list - AKA Viking, BT TM7, and a Palmer's Houndstooth are the main 3.
Currently using an Empire Reloader B for my primary electronic hopper on the semis.
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)
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.
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.

ebladed prostock with some custom mods
phantom with frantom barrel
Does what is says on the box
There are better products
I got this because it was on sale for a dollar. So since i had recently acquired a v35 that needed some TLC I bought this to go along with it. It definitely isn't the best product out there but at one dollar who is arguing. It allows you to load paint in and it usually keeps it in. The only draw back i see is that you cant fill your hopper all the way up and that it isnt as easy to use as the virtue which basically fills itself.
if you can get it cheap its good. Also for everyone wondering it isnt a hard plastic its like what garbage disposal covers are made of.
