I received this as a gift from my friend when it was released(I had to put one cent or else I can't post my review.). I have an XSV Vlocity, but the thing is I never had any problems with my XSV. I even went as far as purchasing 10 clocksprings just in case mine broke. Plus several guys on my team had them so I knew it would be a good investment. NE ways, I decided to put the Dynasty upgrade in my XSV, mainly because of the clockspring fiasco, and I was very impressed. It had a smooth and consistent feedrate. The anti-jam works great too, as I only had one jam for the 1st 2-3 months of using it. I use it mainly on my DM and Vice. It works great. I had my lithium batteries in it for a month before I recharged them. Never had any problems. Features are simple and easy to learn. There are 4 force, 3 run time, and 3 sensitivity modes and I really see no reason for any more. Plus there are 4 recommended settings for different types of play. They say battery and eye logic are better, but I have lithiums and I never had eye problems with any of my Vlocity's.

But over the last few months I started to hear people complain about them. "My Dynasty Vlocity keeps going into anti-jam mode and won't feed properly." I thought of it as just a coicidence and even though I had no problems I still used mine without incident. Sure enough my friends Dynasty started to act up. Soon after he went back to the stock Vlocity and never went back to his Dynasty. At Phoenix PSP, I really heard people having problems in the pits. Many players were going to back up loaders and I was very surprised to see many people have problems. Then about 2 weeks after Phoenix, then I started getting problems. On PSP mode, I was crushing balls into my gun. So I set the speed to the lowest setting, problem solved. Then at a local tournament, after playing all day it started to go into anti-jam mode all the time, then the occasional ball would fall and because of the force it exerted I started chopping. I believe it was the batteries and the fact I had it on the lowest setting. I changed my loader(my other Vlocity) and everything worked out the rest of the tournament.

Once I got home I ran a couple of tests, I came to the conclusion that with the different settings, you have to use different size paint to accomodate the small size in between each paddle. In psp mode I was using DXS gold and it shot fine. The paint was .684/5 and it fed fine w/o problems. With severe, I had problems because my loader was in PSP mode would crush the balls in the breech. Even when I lowered the setting the problem still occurred. This I found to be a paint problem and it can't really count in my test. With JT paint, I had mixed results. Monsoon and Abyss fed fine and cosistent. Paint size was .685 and consistently round. As the day went on the paint swelled a little and eventually the loader went into anti-jam mode. I believed because the paint was very brittle and sensitive to the temperature. Hydro was different. It has a little bit harder shell, still breakable, but it was a bit larger and caused the loader to anti-jam alot. In a faster setting it fed just a bit better, but still not a significant difference. Origin/Signature Series, Proball, Bushido, and Chronic Pro all shot fine without any problems. I used PSP, the lowest setting and Dynasty mode. The best fed was Chronic Pro. Proball worked best in Dynasty mode, even though it did occasionally go into anti-jam mode.

I came to the conclusion that the Dynasty loader is an excellent upgrade and loader. Minus the little problems, reliability can be worrisome if you're not prepared. My suggestion would be to always have your loader set to it's lowest setting with brittle paint no matter what type of tourney you're going to play in. Set the speed higher only when you have harder paint and the paintball's are larger. Smaller paint feeds fine in anymode. Larger needs a little more force in anti-jam mode. I only use the lowest setting and PSP mode based on what kind of paint I use. I've heard people having problems in Dynasty mode and I'm thinking this mode will probably only work unless your using Dynasty's paint. But who knows.

I would recommend this to anyone that uses a VLocity and wants to upgrade. I give it a 9/10 because nothing is perfect and minus the problems is a great product from Viewloader.

Please don't flame. This is my opinion on the test's I have run. If you want to buy it, buy it and if not, then don't. Remember it all comes down to personal preference and what you want. Hope this helps those looking into purchasing one.

the dynasty loader is the 2nd pro model loader to be released by viewloader. therefore i give the xsv the benefit of the doubt since it was the first, that there would be problems in it.

with the dynasty, viewloader has corrected the issues that were found (to me) in the xsv.

1. the dynasty ninja paddle - this paddle is very solid in construction and will not break as compared to the spring impeller of the xsv.

2. chip logic - the dynasty chip logic is beyond the xsv. it does not continuously force the stack as hard as the xsv. i've left mine on stock with no problems at all.

3. speed feed - the dynasty comes with a speed feed that has to be installed. therefore, giving you the option of having a speed feed or not. i've opted to not use it as even though i've had them before, the convenience wasn't that much of a concern for me.

however there are some cons that come with the dynasty.

1. the screws are super tight - just trying to get the battery screw off required some strength. i don't know if the factory torque's these or not but they are tighter than all heck to get off. stripping these screws becomes pretty easy if you don't have the right size phillips to handle the screws.

2. no rechargeable batteries as the xsv had. this would have been nice.

overall besides the minor cons, the dynasty is a great improvement over the xsv and the current king of vlocity loaders!

i have used it about 12 times now on 12 differant thursdays over at ChicagoLand Paintball, and i have to say, compared to my old halo b, and my friends rotor, its really good. i have gotten A LOT of complements on the hopper itself, and have already convinced 2 ppl to get 1. the price has gone down from $160 to $130 so i bought it as soon as it hit the low point. it was a slight challange to find one instock among my local paintball stores, but in a weeks time placed an order online. i have an ego7 w/ custom tounrament parts, so i need a light and accurate loader.

last thursday on Nov 20, i had an opponent shoot a ball directly through the speed feed, breaking most every paintball left in there, & contaminating all of the other ones. there was a little bit of paint resedue in the neck but i didnt think much of it. i played another game and the shots were every which way. that was the first time that i had taken the thing apart. with my old halo, i had lost at least $28 in springs and other little gadgets inside of it when i would take the two half apart. for my dynasty vlocity loader, i unscrewed it, and it just slid apart like it was lubed or something. plus, there were no springs that i saw at all, so i had a good feeling knowing that it was so easy to dimantle and remantle.

i have it programed to jsut how i like it, it allows you to set the forse by which it feeds on hihg force, med, low, and no force feed. also, it allows you to tell it what type of paint you are using, like winter, tounoment grade, or those crappy monster ballz. that way, unlike the halo fortake, it wont brake when it is fed.

i give it a solid A!

Even though this is an older loader now, it is still a great loader and they are cheap now. This can hold its own with the other superloaders. The differences would be ease of cleaning and battery life. The battery life isn't as bad as it's made out to be, but it isn't a Pinokio so.. I would reccomend this even in 2012 if you are looking for something that can at least keep up w/ 12.5 bps for cheap.
