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.

Marker Setup: Spyder Xtra - standard configuration, 20oz tank, CO2.
Strengths: Rapid paintball feeding system.
Weaknesses: Wouldn't work consistantly.
Review: Just purchased and received the turbopaintball hopper/loader. Actually, had to send 1st one back b/c it was split apart. Anyhow, got the 2nd one and installed like the directions showed. Directions were good, easy to follow. Besides, the website has a good video demo on both Tippman and Spyder. It worked for the first 40 to 50 rounds. Then I lost power/pressure. After examining the setup, I noticed that the body of the Xtra is rounded where the valve pin enters and b/c of this, it does not sit flush. There is approx. a 1/8" gap or less b/w the body and valve pin seating properly. When I fired the gun w/out the hopper and line attached, I notice CO2 out both sides > the side it is supposed to go BUT the other side as well and I don't think it is supposed to do that? When I re-installed the original pin, the gun works fine, no power loss.
Conclusion: I think they have a good product design, but they need to double check their applications as the bodies of the Spyders do vary. I've asked (today) for a longer pin so I don't have a result to report on yet. If no fix is available, I'll ask for a refund.

Review: I was a little scepticle, and thought that it was super ugly. However, when I thought it over, I decided I'd give it a chance anyways, becuase I don't play much, and can't shoot extremly fast - I thought it would be a good purchase. So I bought it.

Then 2 weeks later, it finnaly arrived. I opend it up, and hte shell casing was nearly falling off, so I had to tighten the screws. Also, The instructions were impossible to read (really bad printer and really small writing), but luckily it was a simple intalation. The feedneck was really small, and didnt fit into my feedneck verywell - this is tippy 98 too. Anyways, the thing was as ugly as anything (not a weekness, you could tell from the photos).

The next day I went to the field to play a game. I was using comp air, and brand new ProStar paint. I opend it up and noticed that the lid didn't have a spring, and that it didn't close very tightly... I was bigging to get ticked. Then, when i dry fired, I noticed that the lip didn't move anything close to how it did in the vid on the TruboLoader website. I thought it might be the RT for some reason, so I disabled it (so all the air went to the loader). Still, practically nothing.

I figured i might as well try it out, and so I loaded it up, making sure not to go passed the fill line. Out on the field, the thing was worse then a gravity feed. It chopped balls, and gave dry fires like crazy. I constatly was cleaning out the gun, and it never got better.
Conclusion: If you are a noob, and only play never times a month, buy it. Otherwise, pay the extra 2 bucks for batteries now and then for a good loader.

Im giving it a 5 because it sucked, but it wasnt the optimal weather conditions (cold), and mine might have just been bad.
