do you think the 240 round shell will still be compatible with the exalt speed feed? or will i need to get a new one of those too?

Hmm. Been loving my Rotor the past couple years, but this one might be an alternative.

I don't see why they would change it. If they did then I think they would have to change the empire speed feed as well, since they have the same hinge.

I'm still waiting for a remote feed. Kinda like remote tank lines. That way I could carry a case on my back, along with 2 remote tanks.

I bought a prophecy, threw it on my alias and played about 20 games with it over three days of playing. I have not had one game where out properly feeds without me using the rip drive every 6 to 20 balls. three sets of batteries, disassemble reassemble, cleaning and ripping it off mid game and punting it thirty feet have not alleviated my problem. it is effectively the worst purchase I have ever spent my money on. No one at my field know a thing about it. I will commend its durability, it handled the field goal kick exceptionally, losing only the lid and a hopper full of paint it was content on selfishly containing.

You must have a lemon of a hopper, as my Z2 has never once jammed on me. It is the best loader I have ever used!

The size of the opening isnt going to change at all because they would have to keep it the same size for the empire speedfeeds... anyway no lid comes with the larger body so all other lids must be able to fit to ensure that your higher cap Z2 wont let the balls fall out

I've never had an interest in buying a new loader, period -- as I've always had the mindset that my Halo/Reloader-B was enough to satisfy my needs out on the field (i.e., it holds paint, it feeds fine, and it looks good; therefore it works for me). But after watching the disassembly video..I'm starting to question my beliefs here. I am absolutely fascinated by the tool-less design and simplicity of the loader. This may take a bit of time to contemplate

There is an auto adjustment that some of them needed to be put through. All you do is turn it on and hold the forward and back buttons at the same time to put it in calibration mode. It should fixe you're jamming issue.

What was on your mind when the Rotor came out, then?

That is definitely not typical of the Z2 - except for the durability test you performed. Did you contact our tech support to see if they could help you out? Have you tried running diagnostics on the loader to reset it? If you haven't already, visit our customer support site http://support.empirepaintball.com or call our tech 1-800-220-3222 or email tech@paintballsolutions.com. They should be able to help you get your loader fixed and properly feeding as it shouldn't skip a beat.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
