For players looking for the competitive edge, Air Concepts Industries (ACI) released their new high speed elbow. The new elbow design decreases ball hang-up and jamming, in turn increasing paintball flow to your gun. Tests against the most popular elbows on the market showed the ACI elbow had a faster paintball flow every time. The new elbow is available in six different transparent colors to match your equipment and comes complete with mounting screw.
The ACI Loader Elbows are newer, so they should be commonly available, both new and used.
I have only used elbows that come with with hoppers, so not any related products.
Spyder Compact, Evolution hopper, Dye X-el 14'' barrel, fruit of the loom boxers.
Mine cracked in like a day of use and the screws got lost really fast.
It was allright for the few games that the thing lasted, after it cracked my hopper kept on falling off and stuff. Its not worth getting one i dont think, just use the elbows that come with that hopper you buy. I ended up duct taping my hooper directly on to my gun by the end of the day because of this elbow.

Good elbow I had it on my first gun which was a piranha power feed, it work great and I had no problems with it coming loose or the hopper spinning It was a great elbow and I would recommend for anyone to get it the only problem is that it's pretty long which may slow down how fast it feeds but the egg has a long feed neck too and it feeds fast so i dont think that it will be a problem

I was getting set up to have a fun day of paintball with my friend and brother when I put my 32 degrees elbow on. i tightened it and it snapped. luckily there was a shop nere buy so i bought this elbow.(i wasn't going to let a broken elbow ruin my day).
-Feeds Faster then Normal L-Bows
-Is Adjustable, fits on any gun/hopper
-Not the Best plastic
I was running with my spyder compact 2000 when I tripped and fell and the elbow broke. It wasnt that much of a fall since it was only a tree branch but it cracked and cant be used. Sure, it does have a nice feed channel but it's nothing to show off to bill gates. You'd probably be better off with a standard 7/8 inch elbow if you have a regular powerfeed, at least they dont break.
Get a standard elbow if possible. If you MUST get this product b/c a standard wont fit your feed then be prepared for it to break. The feed channel (inside where balls go through) itself is better than some, but thats the only reason i'd choose it.
Tippmann 98 Custom, RT Trigger, NW 8" Spoon Drop Forward with On/Off, 7.5" Lapco Bigshot Barrel, Lapco Direct Feed with ACI Elbow, 12 volt Revolution Hopper with X-board, Dead On Products Aluminum Fore Grip, 12oz Co2 wth Anti-Syphon.
I got this product with a Lapco direct feed that I purchased. I was amazed how well built this elbow was. A friend of mine had a cheap elbow on his Spyder and I compared to two elbows. Let me tell you, the quality of the ACI is well beyond the elbow my buddy had. If you are looking for a good quality elbow that will last a long time, get the ACI elbow. You will not be disappointed.
Great product. Excellent quality. Get it if you need an elbow.
