Pulse RDR opions?

Im in need of a new hopper. What do you guys think about the pulse RDR? I've heard that they aren't really durable, is this true? The price isn't a problem for me. My favorite hoppers are rotors, are the RDR's somewhat like them?

Oh and I'm NOT a fan of spires so don't even talk about them.

I've HEARD 2 distinct issues with the RDR....
1.. battery life is horrible. One guys stated he had to change batteries after each match to keep it reliable.
2... Feednecks are brittle. Ive heard of two that have snapped off during points

I have an RDR and like it so far. I was ok with battery life my entire weekend of Play (UWL) and that was with me putting over a case a game through it. So I am thinking maybe a new software update fixed that. I will say that the HUGE negative for me right now is the lack of accessories. Can't find a speedfeed for the thing to save my life. Other than that I really enjoy it and the ability to spot check your FPS is a nice little bonus.

I thought that they came with a speedfeed? Are they no good?

Only early ones came with speed feeds. I don't think there are alternatives available at this point. There is a thread somewhere near (if not on) the front page where people are discussing their warranty issues associated with the RDR.

GI resolved the paint smashing issue with the new paddles and software.

I personally haven't had my batteries even move the indicator and I'm a back player so it gets a fair amount of use. The benefit over a rotor is capacity and a game timer for me. The chrono is entertaining at best although its good to know my gat is legal.

The other benefit to me is that certain paint doesn't feed through my rotor.. never a problem with the spire or the pulse

We all saw the same posts from one of the very early hoppers feednecks, I don't think they have that issue with the current batch (with the new paddles)

Being that I tech a decent amount of guns for various people, I ve been mulling over getting the RDR for the chrono option and to have a 2nd hopper vs just buying a Clock... still waiting for the bugs to be worked out...

Bought mine and had horrible issues with two things,

Screen went blank
And crushing the ball stack. After every game, I had soup.

Called GI and had such terrible CS I would never purchase another product.


Literally got "well you bought it already so sorry about your luck"

Go with a rotor, or z2. Something that if defective, has a dedicated service to making it right.

The RDR has a cool concept surrounding it but just not worth it IMO. Stick with a Z2 or Spire.
