Very Fast, Reliable, Easy On/Off Switch
Battery Life is very short
I have only used this hopper twice and it seemed to have worked very well i have had no problems with it so far. Although the battery life is terrible you may only get 1000 paint balls for the two 9v. It has a somewhat nice body and it is very fast (for my stock ion xe board). The cool thing is that that you can upgrade to a "select force chip" which allows you to "selects forces" so instead of having 1 setting you have 8. This allows you to change for the different paint you are using and other setting will also save you battery life.
*new* I just checked out the new Virtue Chip for the Vlocity and it looks sweet it is 10 dollors more (40 total) than the other chip made by Vlocity but Virtue has probably made this an awesome hopper it has a bunch of settings and it is supposed to save "300%" of battery life. Seriously you have to get this if your getting the vlocity.
-***the vlocity chip makes it rip and the battery life is 3times longer get it no joke...
I would highly recommend this hopper to any one because of the upgradeable software, speed, and many other body upgrades for it.
*the vlocity makes this godlike

Switch, not button
This loader is freaking awesome, it works perfect with my mini because it is so light. It is fast and will definetely keep up with your marker. It has auto-unjam which is nice and with the Gangstar chip it doesn't eat batteries anymore. Plus the Gangstar chip offers different modes. Another great thing is that it has a switch to turn it on/off and not a button. It also has a nice wide mouth, I only spilled a handful of balls after reloading about 15 times all day.
GREAT hopper. Buy it.

i know it sounds odd that the sound is good but the only time it turns is when u fire and if your not that means reload... the switch is nice that button on the halo drove me nuts, the bad part is it eats up the batteries witch BTW are 2 9Vs i have to change them ever time and i still have my marker battery from 5 times ago.
Ok it good to start off at and if u want to upgrade the chip for it is like $30 so no biggy...
XSV VLocity - Loud, but stupid fast
Reloader B - Just works
Halo V35 - Constantly broke
Eggy - Never breaks

Get an aftermarket chip! It will really increase the battery life and give you force options.
I am currently running the Virtue chip and it runs like a charm.
Getting the correct size speedfeed can be hit or miss on the internet, buy it locally so you know it fits.
Does make a somewhat annoying whine while putting tension on the stack. Not the best for woodsballers. Not even noticible when playing tourney ball.
Smaller Size = Lower Capacity! A definate plus for the front or snake player. Not the best for the back player.
A 140 pod can be alittle too much sometimes if you still have a full stack and 15 or so balls still left. But who really cares if you spill 3 though?
I can hit 25+ bps on the angel with eyes on with the virtue chip.
Great all around loader!
Price point is great!
Buy an aftermarket chip with it! You will thank me!

Pros - Runs off 9v batteries so you only have to have 1 pack of batteries in your bag.
Stock chip - not adjustable, horrible battery life, not adjustable so you pretty much have to get a new chip and spend another 45-50 dollars on another chip.
Impeller asm - wobbles and the clock spring for the XSV ones brake like no other. Horrible system. Works ok but the system the halo/reloaders use is MUCH better
Screw - still using the crappy screw system as always it tares the shells up they need to switch to something new.
Board - you need to either brake or change the height of the 12v resistor otherwise it'll brake
Eyes - easy to bend out of place and pretty much needs to take the front eye covers off.
If you want one cool, but you'll want an aftermarket chip. I'd MUCH rather have a Halo or better yet a Reloader B on my marker.
6-10 since it's still a faster loader that is force feed.
Halo B - Halo's are much heavier. A Vlocity Jr. uses a similar paint detection system, although the Vlocity's is far more reliable.
Reloader B - Reloader's are heavier, but much faster in the long run. And with the sound activation they are more reliable.
Eats batteris like no tomorow
I got this a few months back when I ordered my '05 Superstock. This hopper will do a ligitamate 20 balls per second on the gun and I have never had a miss-feed or any problems with it in a game. It does however put a constant tension on the balls while they are sitting on the drive cone, which can become a blender for fragile paint, and since you can't adjust the speed or tension like a normal VLocity, things can get very hairy. Although if you play at a field that has paint with a relatively solid shell then this thing runs like a dream. The small profile makes perfect for a frontman like myself, and the act that it is very compact makes it great for playing bunkers tight.
Taking it apart, I found it to be far easier than a Halo or Reloader to work on and it has a much better reading system than a Halo. A Halo has eyes that are uncovered in the feedneck of the loader, the VLocity Jr. has a clear plastic piece over the eye sensors so if you do break paint it will still feed.
Overall a great hopper. It is fast and reliable, and will take the abuse you throw at it. I would recommend this to anyone that doesn't see the need for all the modes of a full VLocity and wants a speed machine a a smaller lighter package.

Cheap, very fast, high capacity.
Call me crazy, but I actually prefer this hopper over the more expensive Vlocity. This little underdog hopper is of amazing quality. It is a tad slower than a Vlocity or Evo 3, but should have no problem keeping up with a Shocker or Karnivor (in my experience). It holds slightly less than a Vlocity, but I can reload pretty fast, so that's no problem for me. The Vlocity has 8 different power settings, but who would really need to switch from the highest setting in the middle of a game? I personally like the simplicity and lightweight design of the Vlocity Jr. However, I usually can only fire 2 cases before having to change the batteries.
This is a great, (relatively) inexpensive hopper for a serious or beginning tourney player. It's lightweight, high capacity design and overall simplicity makes for an excellent hopper.
Pros- Fast- It is fast after you upgrade it, i would recomend the virtue or gangsta chip.
Light- This hopper believe it or not is actually about an ounce lighter then the vlocity select force.
Tight- This is no bs whether you play front back or mid, this is so tight that you rarely get hopper shots (at least to the front)
Cons- It is just a little high, but no big deal.
Honestly this hopper is the way to go, Halos and Empires are so bad, there heavy as all hell, and are huge, with those its like carrying a damn brick ontop of your gun. Also alot of people dont know this bu a halo ways about 2.5 pounds WITH paint, the vlocity ways just under 2 pounds. Go with the brand the made one of the first electronic hoppers.
