Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
The TURBO ACTIVE RESPONSE FEEDER� is a pneumatically operated paintball loader designed for high performance and reliability. The patented design allows for continuous agitation for the high rates of fire encountered with modern paintball markers. The TURBO ACTIVE RESPONSE FEEDER� was designed by our team of engineers and paintball playing enthusiasts to provide tournament level performance without the use of batteries or electronics.

The goal of the designers of the TURBO ACTIVE RESPONSE FEEDER� was to deliver a high performance paintball loader utilizing the excess energy that is readily available with most modern paintball markers. Utilizing an industry first Power Take-Off Pin� (PTO-Pin�) or simple press on fitting the engineers at TURBO-PAINTBALL� LLC. have harnessed 'FREE' Energy and used it to keep your paintballs from jamming. The TURBO ACTIVE RESPONSE FEEDER� delivers continuous agitation with every cycle of the paintball marker without the use of batteries or electronics.

Products Used:
None really, just the standard gravity fed hopper that came with the marker. This is faster and more reliable, no dry fires in five hoppers of paint.
Marker Setup: Spyder TL-R, trinity clamping feed neck, J&J Ceramic barrel, Kingman C.A.M.D. trigger frame, JCS stock, Kingman ACS delrin bolt, 20 oz CO2, remote.
Strengths: Light, strong, no batteries, easy installation, holds 200+, narrow profile, lid is perfect.
Weaknesses: Poor manufacturing quality, and obviously poor quality control, poor customer service.
Review: 1. The two halves of the body don't fit together well at all, there are gaps in the seams all the way down to the feed neck.

2. My package was missing the 90 degree angle adapter so the hose sticks straight out at a right angle to my marker. I hope I don't get it caught on a branch in the woods.

3. The PTO pin doesn't seem to be long enough. I can feel quite a bit of gas escaping from the marker body where the PTO pin is. This can't be good for CO2 efficiency and I wonder if it would work even better if there was no leak.

Amazingly, those weaknesses don't seem to affect function at all, I just hate crappy manufacturing and poor quality control, especially since it's stamped "MADE IN THE USA".

Anyway... functionally I can't complain, the thing just keeps on feeding and I had no misfires up to 13BPS. It's a great idea, good design, almost perfectly executed.

I've emailed Action Village (purchased for $24.95) and the manufacturer to see if they can do anything about that PTO pin and the 90 degree adapter. If I get any action from them I'll re-post here.

I haven't used this in a paintball battle yet but having gone through five hoppers of paint from 8-13 BPS I don't think I'll have any problems at all.

***********************EDIT**************************

They're shipping another hopper with a longer PTO pin to me. That's great!
Conclusion: Perfect rate of fire and paint capacity for me without spending a lot of money and worrying about batteries? Hells yeah.

Experience:
3 years
Marker Setup: Tippman 98 Custom Pro w/ response double trigger
Strengths: None
Weaknesses: Very poor design and construction
Review: Absolute piece of junk.
I purchased it but didn't even try it, here's why:

The seam that joins the two halves of the hopper had gaps in it large enough for my fingernail to pass through.
Did not fit securely on the marker, slid right out of the elbow.
The air line to run it has to tie into the line for the resonse trigger. The "T" connection was going to be directly in the way of the trigger. If I would have used it, I would have hit the air line every time I put my finger on the trigger.
I immediately sent it back and bought another manufacturer's loader.
Conclusion: Don't buy it. Its cheap construction and poort design will leave you with very poor results.
