Apperance - In my opinion, I think the Vlocity looks very sleek and is not tall despite what many people think. The height of the loader is just about the same as a Halo or Reloader B.

Performance - Fast, Light, Consistent feed. Nothing more you can ask for.

Reliability - This loader works every time you turn it on and will never give you problems in that department. The two things that bug me about the Vlocity is that it goes through batteries like a fat kid does cake and the shell has its weak spots. The bettery door seems to always crack (viewloader seems to have problems with battery doors ) and there is a weak spot at what looks like the nose of the loader. If you tighten the screw too tight on the nose and you get hit directly on the nose of the hopper the shells just seem to disintegrate.

Value - These can be really pricey new or you can get them for cheap used. Just gotta know where to look.

Overall - Looks good, fast and consistent. The battery problem can easily be fixed by replacing the stock chip for an aftermarket chip which takes two seconds drop in and the hopper durability is just something you're going to have to live with. In the end, I would have to give this 4-stars.

Cons: Design, battery life
I have used this hopper for over 2 years and I really love the amount of paint I can fit in there. I can easily be burning a lane down from the back and reload without stopping or overfilling.
The high profile of it does make it a little more difficult to tuck in behind a bunker but nothing to difficult to overcome with little practice and trial & error. The battery life wasn't to great either.

I love how fast the balls would feed, I would place my Ion on ramp and just watch the hopper keep up without skipping a beat. Taking apart the hopper though to clean wasn't to bad, but the pain was reinstalling the spring for the lid, requires a lot of patience to figure that out.

I still carry this hopper with me as a back up now for my Ego and Reflex Rail.

Overall the VLocity is a great hopper. I originally bought mine when it first came out back in '06 I think. Although my feedneck is now broken in half it still works like a charm. I switch it out for my Prophecy Z2 sometimes and it keeps up just fine. Nowadays you could get one for like $40, if I was just starting out I wouldnt hesitate in buying a used or new VLocity.

I've had my velocity on my A1 for all of this year during tournament play. The loader keeps up to the Angel no problem, as fast I can shoot it will load. The mouth is nice and big so loading is never a problem even in those tight tournament situations when speed counts the most. I haven't modified mine at all, it's stock out of the box, but with lots of shell, board and loader mouth options you can pretty well do what you want with this thing.
