What do you think about the TFX?

Do you like it? Is it worth the money?

My friends absolutely loves his. Holds plenty of paint with a sleek, low profile. The feed ramp is also a new/different design which is interesting. Overall it seems like I good buy to me, but being me i'd still just buy a Dye Rotor.

I think the low profile makes it ideal for snake players. Can have some issues with popcorning the last 20 balls or so, but they seem to work fine for my teammates. Personal preference as to your favored loader, but I think the TFX, Rotor, and Spire are all good.

Really great hopper. Almost never jams. Very low profile with good ball capacity. Very consistent feeding, streams just seem like they never hiccup/miss a beat compared to other hoppers - hard to describe. And the easiest tear down/cleaning/reassembly of any hopper imo.

Cons are it does popcorn the last 15-20 balls because the swoop stack spins too fast when there is no tension (this is oddly a signal to reload and can be countered by hitting the anti-jam button to slow down the swoop stack and allow those balls to drop in if you aren't going to immediately reload and need balls to fire). The speedfeed leaves something to be desired compared to the Virtue SF (doesn't feed as readily and can't see into hopper at all without trimming fins). And it isn't as gentle on paint as the Spire or Z2. It's not super rough just not as gentle as those two.

I have a TFX and a Spire and have used them both extensively. On balance I prefer the spire for its gentleness on paint, higher capacity of the 260, better speedfeed, window, and no popcorning. But the TFX isn't far behind for me, it's right there and advantage could go TFX based on personal preference.

I love my TFX. Totally the best thing since the football (i guess you would call it soccer) was invented
