Prophecy Z2 on a Sniper?

Hey guys,
Just curious if anyone has tried to use a Prophecy Z2 on a Sniper with wire detent? Since the Z2 is supposed to self calibrate it's speed according to how fast the paint is moving through, I was wondering if it would back itself off enough to the point where it would'nt double feed past a single wire detent? I remember reading on MCB I think, where Simon said something about originally designing the Z2 with pump in mind, but not sure if he meant that mainly about the capacity/size.

I know people have used Rotor's on their snipers, but from the pictures I've seen they were mainly S6's. Anyone have experience with other force fed loaders on a sniper with a wire detent?

Thanks!

Wire detents should absolutely do the job.

I used to run a Prophecy on my t2, the only issue i had was that its sound activated, with a pump your not always reloading when the run is fired, so it compresses the stack and then luckily it removes the pressure. But then when you go to reload its only gravity feeding at that point. But when comparing it to the rotor which occasionally jams, the potential for failure is about the same.

That is actually the same type of gun I was thinking of trying it on.
