What Hoppers fit the Marq feedneck?

I know VLocity hoppers fit the Marq feednecks without any modification, however I also know most Empire Reloader 2B's need to be sanded down or modified to be small enough to fit the marq feedneck. What other hoppers will fit it?

Im considering the Empire Prophecy, Rotor, Pinokio, etc.

What loaders have you guys had the most success with??

All should fit. Sandpaper is your friend.

Shells on hoppers(even the same hopper, like B2's and Halos) have different thicknesses on the plastic. They mess around with the formulas and stuff frequently. A lot of it is luck.

If it doesn't work.. Sand it down, that's all there is too it.

if your loader is a tight fit, sand it down. i do not want Marq Users taking of the feedneck collar and the wedge. when taken off and loader is in, your risk diving or droping the gun and bending the feedneck. the feedneck collar is like a neck brace.

Thanks for the info guys, I appreciate it. The only problem I have with getting a loader that will need to be sanded down to fit my feedneck would be that i always worry that if I sand it down I will weaken the structural integrity of the hopper's feedneck. ex: I dive into snake 1 and my hopper feed neck snaps and the hopper dives into snake 2

My Velocity fits good, have to tighten the screw down slightly. My reloader B fits VERY snug. Basically, I dont need to tighten the wedge down.

I'm going to go with low quality control as the reason instead.

Rotor worked and looked really well/good when I shot it at Bob Long's shop.

I have a darq - empire magna, halo fits well.
But fpr the Vlocity - my smoke one (original, not sanded) is really loose and it's almost impossible to get the loader fixed. A red one from my team mate fits 100%...

Loader feednecks are not 100% identical in diameter from loader to loader, so saying that "my Halo fits" is really pointless because it may have a slightly different sized feedneck than someone else's.

It's both. Only some companies mess with the formula, mind you.

This is coming from a guy who used to work for the company who made Halos.(not me, a friend)

When one of my battery covers won't fit into the shell but another will, that's quality control.
