It's a good speed feed might just be the best one out right now.

I agree without any significant improvements there isn't really a need to release a new product

Yeahhhhh, your points are pretty stupid. It will hit the fingers and roll off? It will roll off and into the hopper. That's like putting mesh over your speed feed and saying it is keeping the rain out because it is covering more surface area. I agree it will help keep some more dirt out but any type of debris on the fingers is going to go into the loader when you load. Stop trying, its not going to keep out any kind of water.

No its actually a valid point and your just not smart enough to figure it out. With the new speed feed it covers more area. A rain drop now has a chance of hitting a finger instead of going directly into the loader. When it hits the finger the rain drop also breaks up into smaller droplets. Some might make its way into the loader. Some might fly off. Some may even sit on the fingers but those also have a chance of falling off while running or snapping. I never once said that is would stop the rain from entering the loader while reloading. Of course the rain on the fingers will enter your loader when you load.... I am talking about standing around or while playing it can help prevent more rain from entering the loader over the older version.

My $0.02: It's a speedfeed, water will get in no matter what. You don't want water in? Use a goddamn lid. Yes, a speedfeed with more coverage will delay water getting in but it won't reduce it by a considerable amount. You see, water doesn't take off flying just because you're snap shooting or running. If you're in a flat out sprint it may help a little bit, but when you're snap shooting water isn't flying everywhere if it's raining. Oh, guess what, a majority of the time that added coverage won't help for ****, do you know why? Because most of the time isn't spent sprinting, even in professional PSP games a majority of the time players are sitting in their bunkers and barely moving when they snap shoot (in a good way).

Unless it's a watertight seal (which it's not) you're going to get a ton of water in and even if it had a watertight seal it would just pour in with your paint when you loaded.

Thank you.

It shouldn't matter anyways unless it's a long game or it is pouring rain, in which case any speedfeed on the market isn't going to do anything to help stop the rain. In an event, my paint stays in my loader all of maybe 30 seconds. Not enough for water to even make a difference anyways.

Exalt makes good products. My universal speedfeed outlasted the hopper I bought it for and the next one. When my last hopper before my Spire died I threw it on a rental hopper for the electronic rentals, 60 cases later the speedfeed is doing just fine.

I'm aware of that. My point was is that I could care less about this hoopla of rain getting in the hopper. Use a lid for crying out loud.

This has NOTHING to do with the post you quoted. You know that, right?

Which is my point.

You asked how well they'll hold up and I gave an example of one of their cheapest products then you flipped **** about rain. Maybe you should see a doctor since you appear to have some severe issues when it comes to reading and comprehending.

If you don't want to re read my other reply, I said I know they have good quality, and the only reason I care if they last long is because none of the other factors, SUCH AS RAIN, concern me.

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.
