20bps on marker feed rate
25bps free fall rate
180 ball count capacity
Instant auto anti-jam
Double vision system
Giant mouth lid for quick and easy loading in tight spots

On/off switch with shield reduces accidental activation
The Viewloader VLocity Jr. is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

I was Veryy Excited to pick up this hopper at a Vendor at a Tornament. and it proformed very well. It has excellent Feeding Speed and dosent chop. However I have experenced a aray of problems, I had to Replace the battery door, Battery Adapter, and the Left side shell . I Called up and they said it has Structal Weaknesses. Overall It Can Compete with Almost any Tornament Grade Loader including Halos, and Empires. However The Motor dosent stop when not firing it only slows down. Although it has Problems it Has Proformed.
Very Good for the Price, Can Compete with Tornament Grade Loaders
Big mouth lid
and uhh... speed?
A little loud
I picked up this hopper from my local paintball shop for $85.
I have done several speed tests and i drained the hopper in less than 6.5 seconds, which came out to about 27.5-30bps, which also surprised me since it is only supposed to be able to feed 25bps on free fall.
I found that the big mouth is very convenient and makes it very easy to load (in tight spots te-he) just like it says on the box.
After further testing this hopper i found that it was a bit loud not really a problem though.
over all i think that this is a very good hopper for it's price i would also recommend it over the regular vlocity. Though this hopper has a slight noise problem i will give it a ten since it is not a significant problem.

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.

68 ci. 4500 psi DXS carbonfiber nitro tank
paintballs fall out of it
looks good with its blue shell
what? A weakness with this loader? Ya right! Stop lying to me there are none
The viewloader velocity jr. is perfect for ions,minis,epiphanys,ect. its small,light weight and looks like dada,the velocity, I would suggest you by a cooler shell like blue or red,because black is kinda dull,smoke is OK thoe. Also the box and manufacturers
are a little off on its speed, it says 20 bps on gun and 25 bps free fall,its really 26 bps on gun and 29 bps free fall,the select force chip would be a good upgrade if you need it.
The perfect loader for ions ect. i would give it a 11 but i cant.

(woodball)98 custom viewloader (speedball) diablo ar-1 vlocity jr 48ci 3000psi tank
Maybe a little wide
I bought this loader off of amazon.com for $54.00 knowing what a vlocity jr is capable of. this loader is amazing. i think that viewloader has done it again. for $100 you should save a little more for a halo v35. i recommend this loader for a diablo wrath pmr or ion
