Why do people do this wanna-be hk thing? I mean hk people dont even play paintball, they just whine and start drama while wearing the ugliest stuff. Seriously you find light blue and pink to be attractive colors for your parents 1500 dollar investment (your gun/marker)? If you want to whine keep it off the field and save it for the internet; O wait! THATS EXACTLY WHAT YOU DO! Haha, if you don't play then don't whine.


I want your G6r parts and upgrades, sell them to me, because you wont get anything for them if you sell/trade them with the gun.

As nice as it is to see a rep from a company step up, get active on the forum, and help people... this almost sounds like a "Email me instead of making a thread so people don't see how many people are having issues with our fancy new loader" thread.

Just saying. That's how I read the OP.

Where is the manual unjammer on the V-max? The Rotor has that handy trigger.

The design of the paddles are that they'll bend around a jam, and with it not being a fully force-feed, it's doubtful it'll jam in the first place. Most of your semi-force feed hoppers don't include an unjam method (Pinokio, Fasta).

I found this on Paintball Gateway.



This is interesting, if this truly helps with speed and consistency, it should be an automatic mail out to all existing customers experiencing these issues, not an "upgrade". I know it's for the Pinokio. Do you plan on issuing something similar?

Is it possible to get the upgrade parts by mail without sending the hopper in? Mine is having speed issues but I can't afford to be without it as it's my only loader.

I was just making an unbiased observation. When I see an employee come onto a forum and say "stop making threads, e mail us" and then now, instead of publicly posting an answer to OApb, you say "Email me" instead, makes it sound super secretive like you know it's a design flaw and don't want people to talk about it. That's how it looks. I don't own a V-Max, nor does anyone I personally know, so it is not me freaking out about problems or bashing you directly, even. I simply see this post and think "man why don't they just come talk to the forums about it instead of rushing it to email and hiding it"?

Problems won't get fixed by making posts on the internet. They will only get fixed when people contact the manufacturer. However, people tend to think the opposite.

Props to Valken for starting to set these issues straight with the loaders.
