I bought this hopper to replace my halo and well it didnt do that at all
This hopper was not worth the money spent on it this hopper has to be the worst supposed "high end" hopper ever to be in production
This hopper is the "high end" version of the nxe jrny
Both hoppers suck and should not ever been made
Problems with vmax
1 so inconsistent past 10 bps that its insane
2 bad on brittle paint
3 shell feels really weak
4 the feedneck feels like its going to snap everytime i move
5 the hopper popcorns like crazy
6 the stock lid sucks and the valken speed feed doesnt compare to virtue or exalt
7 even on best days the feed rate doesnt hit 20 bps

Pros: Fast, easy to clean, looks good
Cons: Not a one
I have a BL Intimidator and I have never had a problem with it. I never actually run full auto though, since it is kind of a waste, so I cannot verify 30+ bps. It is consistant enough for me to use ramping set to 17-20 bps and not miss a shot that I could notice. So as far as speed goes, this thing rocks. In fact, I use it with the 1 9-volt upgrade most of the time ($15 and makes it run on one 9-v instead of 2) and I don't have issues.
Battery life is as expected with 2 9-volts (I don't count cases, but I don't think I change it more than any of my previous loaders). I really like the one 9-v option.
I use a virtue brand speed feed, but there is a less expensive valken one.
Taking it apart is easy and does not require tools.
The price recently went down to 90, but I thought it was definitely well worth what I paid for it. It is the more reasonable rotor (who needs 50 bps), comes apart just as easy and looks just as good (even has some camo options, I have a black one though) for almost $100 less.
Best hopper in it's price range!

I bought this marker as a low price option to feed my marker. It has performed well so far. I love the shape of the hopper and the ease of breaking it down though it can be a little tough to put back together. I have not had a problem with the hopper feeding, though I only use it to feed 12.5 bps. I would recommend it for the price and performance.

For a speedball loader, its not too bad. For the price, its great. But I don't like how when people dive, it feels like its going to snap in half. Also has trouble with paint that is really brittle.

while the v-max is very light and has a profile much like that of the rotor, mine had trouble even shooting 12.5 bps, much less the 30+ advertised on the box. it has a very simple design and a quick tooless dis-assembly. however, the battery life is horrendous despite taking two 9-volt batteries. not worth the 100$ if your looking for a tourney grade loader. however, i hear the price has since decreased making it a good choice for woodsballers or scenario ballers. my advice, make sure you know what you need for the type of paintball your going to be playing, because this loader is not suited for the speedball field.

Valken Sports V-Max Was not impressed with the hopper. Felt as though it should be available at a lower price point.

The v-max was an attempt to combine the rotor and the pinokio, but the nose tab that connects the top and bottom breaks very easily, the battery compartment is a hassle, and the design was just pretty poor in terms of performance and durability.

The loader is great. It feeds paint as fast as I need it and is very easy to use. Push a button and you're good to go. It keeps up with my gun just as well as the Prophecy and Rotor at a fraction of the prices of those loaders.

Valken Sports V-Max For the price its not worth it. I was not impressed. They immediately had to release a free upgrade for a flaw in their original creation.
