Vlocity' jr's were a great purchase at the time because they were light, fast, and extremely upgradeable. Initial problems were that you always had the motor spinning and making loud noises so it was hard to hear teammates and some would eat batteries like they were candy. The shells weren't the most stable but all replacement parts were cheap enough. In the day, these sold like hotcakes and so did the upgrade chips and parts.

well its a nasty hopper but u deff need a new chip like a virtue dynasty now has one or a nox or gangstar to increase speed and battery life.

I think the lid is a little hard to open so i got a speed now and its very easy to reload and its also VERY light its like a feather compared to a halo. Also the package claims to do 20 on gun and 25 off not true does 25 on gun and about 29 off gun i call the company

So go out and buy one!

Pros: Lightweight, Wide Mouth Lid
Cons: Battery Life (Without Upgrade Chip)
I have had my Vlocity Jr. for a while now and I love it. The only upgrade that I would recommend for it is a new chip. I chose the Gangstar and have no regrets, but I didn't do it for more speed. I did it for better battery life. The Vlocity Jr. Goes through batteries very quickly, but for only about 25 dollars, the Gangstar is great.

Now for the important stuff. Out of the box this has a very good feed rate, I clocked mine at 31 in a drop test but on gun it would be slower. One of my favorite things about this hopper is the Wide-Mouth lid, it makes it very easy to load paint and it's big enough to put the end of a pod in the hopper through the mouth. Another great feature is the on/off switch. It is extremely easy to use and to know if the hopper is on or off. Also, the shell is pretty strong, and I haven't seen any problems with any of the shells of these hoppers at my field.

To finish off, I would recommend this hopper to anyone. I really hope this review helps any of you who are deciding between a few different hoppers.

VLocity JR.

I picked up one of these as my back up loader, Im very glad i did!

Pros:

Fast: The Jr. Isnt as fast as the Normal Vlocity, but its still very fast.

Small:I love the small profile of the Jr. This loader is great for front players who need to keep small.

Light: These loaders are one of the lightest on the market.

Cons:


One mode: Only has one mode unless you upgrade.

Loud: These loaders are known to be on the loud side.

This is really a great loader. It's a shame you don't see more pro teams using them.

Weight- I can't spit out exact numbers for you here, but let me say that it is probably one of the, if not the lightest hopper on the market. It really feels like it weighs nothing.

Speed-It's fast enough for every marker out there and then some. Don't be fooled by marketing for all of these loader modes, you really don't need any modes let alone a new chip unless you want to shell out the cash to improve battery life. I would recommend it as the 9V batteries start to add up after a while.

Feel-The hopper sits in a very upright position, so it doesn't cause any balance problems at all. It's also quiet even when feeding, not that you'll need to be sneaking up on anybody.

Battery life-The battery life is probably the only bad part of this loader. It is horrendous. Almost every time I play, the hopper chews through two 9V batteries. As all of you with electronic markers know, 9V's are very expensive, so the costs add up. I would strongly recommend getting an upgrade chip. As I said, not for the useless modes, but for the force settings. They allow you to use zero force, which is perfectly fine for all occasions and increases the battery life roughly threefold.

Price-$100 for this loader really isn't very much at all, compared to what you're getting and compared to the price of the other loaders on the market today.

Overall-As I said before, this really is a great loader. I would even go so far as to say that it is the best loader on the market currently. Of course, we have a few new contestants in the loader market, but they have yet to prove themselves. For now, the Vlocity Jr. is definitely the best combination of light weight, speed, and price.

My first hopper was a Halo B but now I have a VLocity Jr. and I love it!

Looks
The VLocity Jr. looks decent, I mean there are only so many ways to design a hopper.The shape of it is brilliant, with its "cone" like shell the nose is very narrow which can dodge paintballs easier.

Performance

First thing I would recommend is that you buy an after market chip, the stock chip is constantly spinning which uses more battery life and could maybe break paint if the hopper is WAY over packed.

This is probably the LIGHTEST force feed (with eyes) loader on the market, it is way lighter than a Halo B, and is very consistant. With it's combined sleek shape and light weight snap-shooting, diving and running is eased up since it decreases the entire weight of your set up.

Overall Experience

This is my favorite hopper, it is a bit expensive but for those hard core players, buy it! Trust me, if you want a reliable, light weight, and easy-to-use hopper the VLocity Jr, is just for you!

I bought the Vlocity Jr from a friend that quit so i got this for really cheap. At first i noticed that it was super light because i had a pulse at the time and they are heavy. When I drop tested it with a pod of paint, the feeding rate was pretty fast.

PROS:
Wide mouth lid
Lightweight
Anti-jam
fast feed rate

CONS:
Pretty small
one setting

I recently got a virtue chip which greatly increases the battery life and has more modes.

they are nice hoppers the jrs are kinda slow, but they work. They are the lightest hopper! But my first day using it, it wasn't chipped or anything and it gave me such a hassel.

The batteries start to die and light goes red about 4 games in to the day.

my recommendation is save more money and either get a chip or just a regular velocity...

I've had a Vlocity jr. since I've started playing, and since the day I've had it have been nothing less then satisfied with my Vlocity Jr. You can tell JT did not rush the production of any of the Vlocity series. I recommend the vlocity to most beginner players, because of the following:

1. Practicality- This loader is incredibly practical, this price is extremely fair. It feeds, and keeps up with any other loader on the market. And if you not satisfied stock, there are literally hundreds of upgrades. As well as decent battery life.

2. Simple- Vlocitys are the epitomy of simple, a flip switch and an anti-jam button that works! The internals are a single piece held together with a few screws. Pop open a halo and the internals spill out.

3. Performance- My first expectations of this loader were, "great another funny shaped eggy loader." Boy was I wrong, the loader actually fits to bunkers quite well, especially the Doritos. And this thing is fast, period - end of story.

My only problems with this loader:

1. Shells- If you plan on keeping this loader be prepared to buy new shells after half a year, or at least the right half because the screw where your battery door goes will crack and break.

2. Feedneck- You will have to shave down the feedneck if you want it to sit lower, but if you have no problems with a tall loader, then there's no need. This actually isn't even as hard as most people make it seem.

Shizbam's Recommended Upgrades:

1. Speedfeed- Warrior or Virtue Crown (Soft or Normal)
You will not be sorry for picking one of these up, I guarantee it will improve your game.

2. Virtue Chip- I bought this shortly after getting my vlocity, and let me say this is amazing. Improves your battery life two fold, and lets you bump up the speed if you need it. (There are other chips as well: dynasty, XSV, Gangsta)

3. Paddle- Dynasty Paddle simply makes your loader easier on brittle paint. Unlike halos your vlocity will never be a "blender"

4. Aftermarket Shells: Not a necessity, but you can get some cool custom ones!

Video!
