Jt Question

I've seen jt take out hoppers like the revolution and the evlution. I was wondering if there were any rumors of them releasing the vlocity again. i was a big fan of the vlocity back then when it came out and it would be cool for them to release it again.

Very doubtful, but anything is possible. Hoppers are expensive to keep in production. If you think about the mold costs, components, packaging, ect...then add in all the variable colors...it can be a lot of overhead. So not saying it isn't worth the expense, but it is easier for them to shelf something when it starts to do poorly than anything else.

The KEE collective already has a successful line-up of loaders. Sooooo many loaders. Bringing back the Vlocity wouldn't make much sense.

However, bringing back the Egg didn't make much sense, so who knows. And they brought back the revvy, THANK CROM.

I'm sure they still have the molds for the vlocities. No use in throwing out a mold that you spend all that money on, even if you stop making the product.
