I don't believe so, at least, not to my knowledge. Please, correct me if I'm wrong. However, why would you want it to do that? You are aware that you can adjust the sound sensitivity, correct?

Once again, I believe Empire did this for a couple reasons.
Many people complained about the Vlocity and the paddle constantly running. It obliterated batteries and for the woodsballers out there, it gave away their positions due to the noise.

^^And that's their own fault for not using the "no-force" setting. (setting # 1) One of the most complained about features of the Vlocity, and yet it could be fixed by reading the ****ing manual.

I got around 4 cases on a set of batteries on my Vlo using setting # 1, and it kept up with PSP 15 bps all day no problem. And the best part was that there was no "humming" noise and no unnecessary strain on the ball stack. The other force settings were pointless...but I digress.

To the original poster - the Prophecy puts a small amount of force on the ball stack using the magnetic clutch until the motor kicks in. There is nothing wrong with the way it feeds. If you're interested in doing a drop test, turn the sound-activation to 4-6 and yell into the loader - it will empty itelf out in about 5 seconds...

Thank you for your input. I've never owned a Vlo, just heard numerous complains about it. I appreciate you informing me.

No problem. I just get annoyed when I hear the same complaint about the Vlocity over and over again - and it's usually the battery-life and noise factor that they compain about. It's as if nobody ever tried the no-force setting, they just pulled the Vlocity out of the box, set it on 8, and then complained about the noise and lack of battery life.

While I do like my Prophecy better, I feel that the Vlocity is still a very legitimate loader - it NEVER jams (or it automatically unjams), shoots reballs and crappy paint without a problem, it is very lightweight, and very simple. It is also very fast, if that matters...

Other than the illegitimate complaint about battery, everybody has absolutely loved their Vlo.

The virtue chip in the VLocity quiets the motor down a ton. Check out my vid on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDGwiyjkw6U

And 4 cases on a set of batteries is terrible. W/ a V chip you should be looking @6+ I have seen people put 8+ through them with that chip.
