As a paintball player, you should be trying to grow the sport. If there is ever an opportunity to help your local field, you should try your best to help.

Did they ever fully launch the hopper that was supposed to be included with all Vapor guns?

You sure you're thinking of the right hopper? GI has their Pulse RDR hopper which internally resembles the "classic" Halo loaders, Machine has the Gear, which is somewhat similar to the Rotor and has a much simpler board than the Pulse RDR. The Gear was fully released also, I have 2 of them in fact and at least 2 months ago, you could purchase them from Machine's website.

Yeah apparently they are dropping the Pulse and working on the Gear.

Well, not much to work on really. Take the internals, put them in a body made of the same material as the Spire and Rotor, bam, best hopper on the market.

I will post a separate thread for this topic...but since its related...here goes...

As an avid Vapor fan (i have 3 V3 guns) i was concerned about parts...specifically boards...
I have been in touch with Ape and they are supposed to be gearing up to do a run of vapor boards to help us guys out...no eta yet, just discussions...but they were dead serious, as was I...they certainly understand our pain and doind a run is easy for them to do...minimal changes needed...

In related news, i have confirmed 100% that the ego11 board is a perfect drop in replacement with minimal work or concessions...i will be offering a board replacement service to get ur non working Vapor boards going again. The ego11 boards have buttons reversed top vs bottom revarding function and the small disc u press is slightly shorter, requiring adtl matl or swapping with original buttons...but im 99% certain the swap issue is an easy, although trying, affair...
More later...i lov3 these guns and will do whatever i can to help owners keep them going...

-David

I preferred the V3 over the 2014. Mainly due to the eyes. Didn't like the whole eye "pipe".

i was in the same boat as cocker. I might get another one some time at the amazing price point they're at but I always get nervous when I go to pull the trigger on one (buying, not shooting)

maybe theyre going back to the plan they had to retro fit the new drive in the 2012 body. maybe change up the milling a little. I don't think the 2014 did more sales than the 2012. but im just guessing

MP doesnt just work with pb. so "new products" or "cool stuff" may be accurate just not pertain to paintball.

I heard it's not so much out of business but they also were bought up by GI, so they no longer exist as a distinct business entity.

I heard rumors of this but never heard anything confirming it. Did you hear something official?

Nope, nothing officially official. But its what my friend told me that Spurlock told him (he's actually good friends with him).

its going to be hard for a comeback with their name tied to anything. since they took a monsterous reputation hit. it would take GI to show major control of it for a positive out look.
