*I was sponsored by JT when initially using this product*

With the disclaimer out of the way, we were sponsored by JT Sports and used a mixture between this and the Velocity JR. For the MSRP, you really could not go wrong. The hopper held up to a beating for 3+ years and kept going. Only after 3 years did there start to be signs of stress fractures in the plastic.

The only real con was as tall the hopper sat on the marker. It made a huge target when you were trying to play a bunker tightly.

I absolutely love this loader. I'll continue to rock one even if the "high end" loaders were cheaper. Been using vlocitys for over 5 years and the only issue I have is when putting the hopper back together. If your not careful it is really easy to break the mode button or pinch the wires.

Appearance:

The Vlocity is an acquired taste. Most people seeing it for the first time will use words associated with "ugly" and "hideous". However, once you have become accustomed to the unit it takes on it's own beauty.

Performance:

This is where the Vlocity truly shines. It feeds at a high rate and in today's world of uber fast gun it stands up to the test. Unless you have the world's bounciest gun or fastest fingers, you will not out run the Vlocity.

Reliability:

For the most part the Vlocity is one of the most reliable hoppers on the market.

- Easy to program
- Easy to disassemble/clean
- Battery door is secure and innovative
- You can replace the current chip set (solves battery problems and adds more speed!)

The not so good:

- Seems to crack around the battery door if you are not careful
- If not careful when removing shells buttons may be torn off
- TERRIBLE BATTERY LIFE

Value:

Great value. You pay less than a Halo and you get comparable speed and they are easier to care for. Add in the ability to change out chips and you have a KNOCK OUT unit.

I've had this loader for a number of years hanging around. Never had a loader that ran better than it but it has structural issues Alot like the halos. Feedneck is good and stable but the shells are cheap plastic junk. I'd trade a lil wt for a more sturdy shell any day of the week

If you've been using a Halo and want a lighter setup, the Vlocity is the one to get. It basically loads about just as quick. 8 force settings, but I usually keep it at either 1 or 2 and it was plenty enough.

If you want a light setup, this is the loader for you. Probably less broken feednecks too now that the loader as a whole is lighter.

On the other hand, you can see that the screws keeping the half shells together are digging into the plastic itself, as opposed to being held by hex nuts like a Halo. This might be a problem if you are obsessive like me and have to clean all your gear inside out after every day of play. Mine is still as sturdy as ever, but after seeing how the screws work, I'm cutting down on the cleaning just in case. It would be really cool if VL would just start using machine screws and hex nuts.

They make speed-feed type caps for them now, and I got one for myself. It's at a somewhat steeper angle than a halo speed-feed, but I've gotten used to it.

Appearance: it's function over form for me, but some people don't like its looks. Others love it.
Performance: it's fast like a Halo and lighter too. I heard that it eats batteries, but I use rechargables so I wouldn't know...
Reliability: it turned into a blender once when I used setting 8. I toned it down and it's been a charm since.

Cons: Battery Door
I originally had a Halo B w/ Rip Drive, then a buddy of mine convinced me to buy a VLocity. So I maned up and purchased one. Taking it out of the box I fell in love with the way it looked and how much lighter it felt than my Halo B.

Performance: The way this thing performs is excellent, it feeds to the speed of you gun and I still have not had 1 jam in mine using good paint. Using bad old paint it did jam quite a bit but what hopper doesn't? Filling paint is simple as can be, with the large mouth it's hard to miss and not get any paint in at all.

Value: I bought mine here on the Nation for 80.00 and it was a great investment on my part, an amazing hopper for a better price you will not be disappointed.

Reliability: This is probably the most reliable hopper I have ever had, other ones would jam and sometimes even shut down in the middle of games. But my VLocity has never really let me down. It has a strong feedneck so it wont come off taking a slide into snake. I have dropped my VLocity numerous times off my loft at home and it's still together and working perfectly.

The only thing I would buy would be a speedfeed, the stock lid isn't that strong and the spring has broken many times, and I prefer Speedfeed's over lids. Watch the battery door because the area around there seems a little weak and seems to crack easily. Other than those few cons it's an amazing hopper and I would recommend it to anyone in the search for a new hopper.

The VLocity hopper is an extremely good hopper. It keeps up with any marker on semi, and is well beyond most tournament caps. It looks about like most electronic hoppers except a few, like the Rotor, and it looks good. I have never had this hopper jam on me, either.

It does sucks batteries though, and C batteries are pretty expensive. I would suggest investing in some nice rechargeable batteries. When the batteries get low, the light flashes yellow, which is nice, but it also feeds considerably slower, almost down to 13 BPS. I would recommend changing batteries, if not every time you play, then every other time you play.
