I did not have my toque long. Sadly it departed to an early grave after meeting the ground in a dive. My major issue was how loud the torque hopper could be when it was out of paint. Nothing like screaming to your opponent "BUNKER ME NOW."

The hopper kept up well with the current rates of fire, and had a decent profile. It was easy to turn on and not a complete pain in the anus to clean. The durability was lacking though.

Pros: reliable, cheap, durable
Cons: constantly grinds
Pros
1. Inexpensive
2. Low profile
3. Hasn't jammed on me
4. Durable shell (better than Vlocities. Worse than Rotor)
5. toolless disassembly (though not super easy)
6. Will still run even if the 9 volt batteries only have a charge of 6.5 volts. That's pretty cool.
7. haven't had an issue with it during casual play
8. Keeps up with way more expensive hoppers

Cons
1. Constantly spins (kind of annoying to listen to in woodsball, but it makes you turn it off immediately after the game to save on batteries.)
2. takes some muscle to disassemble
3. no customer support
4. No low battery indicator, just have to listen to it spinning slower.
5. Hard to find speed feeds for it.
6. Loud if you are out of paint-just asking to get shot
7. probably don't want to run water through it like the rotor or Pinokio.

Comments
1. if you cram 180 balls in it, it can get stuck if you have low batteries. It has always been good, even with low batteries filled with only 170 balls.
2. small/avg capacity

I used a Torque as my primary hopper for almost two years. Very dependable, very fast, consistent loader. I still keep one in my back for an absolute backup.

Pros:
Price
Fast
Consistent
Dependable
Great on batteries

Cons:
LOUD!! Motor constantly runs.
Cheap shell, have cracks in both mine, one completely needs a new shell.
Difficult to disassemble.
Speed feeds are hard to find and expensive.

I would recommend this product as a really good backup to a rotor or a prophecy. It will feed. It will always feed.

Cons: no CS, motor constantly putting pressure one stack
This hopper has a large feedneck, but that can be dealt with easily. It feeds paintballs extremely well, I cant recall mine ever jaming after about 2 and half years of use. It was one of the few hoppers that feeds reballs consistently, but not to say jam-free.

The shells are strong, and were advertised to be easy to take apart but i found it to be a pain in the *** to take it apart. That being said, I needed to go through the process of that often with the motor constantly on and spinning to keep pressure on the ball stack. Which is good for feeding paintballs fast, but bad for battery life.

Reloading was rather easy, the lid/opening to the hopper were large enough where its hard to miss with a pod.


You can buy them cheap if you can find them because parts are limited and customer service is pretty much nonexistent.

tourqe 440 widemouth loader

well for 30 dollars i have found a great unit to suplement my rotor,

good battery life, (havent needed to replace) a tough shell that withstood me wrenching it apart, wide feed port, standard sized feedneck, speed and feedrate is exceptional and consistant, simple on/off, reverse, tooless disassembly.

the only thing i dont like is that theprofile is a bit bigger compared to my halo,
and that you really need to muscle the loader to pull it apart, and no company product support.


all in all, easily a great loader for a primary or a backup, offeing fast speeds and grat performance.

The Torque is easy to clean, tough, but has a few drawbacks:

1. Only has 160 ball capacity
2. Feed continually spins (fast too) , which can cause popcorning.
3. Fixed feed rate.
4.Though easy, disassembly is required to change batteries (runs on either 1 or 2 9V's)

While below the Halo and Empire B, it's still above Evo's and about on par with VLocities.

I got the torque a few weeks ago, i LOVE it. its really fast and realy light. I caught 3 or 4 great bounces off the top of it. only 1 broke. I modded it to fit a speedfeed and it works great. but before it over filled if there were a few to many balls left when reloading. But all in all a great hopper

This is for the 440 Loudmouth

Had this for over 2 years and love it. Always works, used it as a primary and loaner. No eyes, but its really not needed with this hopper. Slip drive is great, a little loud, but no one on the field ever heard it but me. This thing is FAST, I have never once outshot it with any marker I had it on.
Tooless design is nice, a bit of a pain at first, but it wears in.
For the price,if you can find them, they are worth the hard earned cash
