Ease of disassembly
Battery Efficiency (compared to others)
Weight: When i first picked up this loader i was amazed at how light it is. If i'm not mistaken it only weighs an ounce or 2 more than my vlocity jr. This loader is also lighter than the rotor, and this has a higher capacity
Reballs: Also it feeds reballs extremely well, it kept up fine on 13bps capped semi.
Capacity: The stock nose holds 240 which is more than enough, but it is nice to have. You can also get a 200 capacity nose and a 280 capacity nose.
Durability: As i can be a bit of a klutz, i have dropped this loader numerous times on concrete and it has not had any problems from doing so.
Disassembly: You can take all of the shell pieces off in about 30 seconds, which is what you need to clean out any ball breakage
Assembly: If you take all of the shells off, it may be difficult to line the back two pieces up exactly. Though you don't really have to take off the back two that often, i though this should be mentioned.
After using this hopper extensively i have found that it does tend to occasionally jam with smaller reballs. However, this is easily fixed by taping the movable part of the freeway down (pm me if you have any questions regarding this modification).
This has to be one of the best loaders made, along with the rotor. Though with the recent price drop this is probably the better buy, especially for those who play reball or play back positions. If you get this loader you will not be disappointed.
