But the drive would slide under and around the ball and immediately stop. I just wanted to make it very clear it's not like its spinning every time you run (it's not).

Thanks for the clarification.

Ok, the most ridiculous test I could put together this afternoon. Sorry I couldn't work in the "moose attack" test like I was hoping or the birthday pinata test. But I think the bacon wrapped, torched spire and 12gauge blast makes up for it

That is not the same dog from the warehouse. That dog seems nicer, lol.

That was a great video. But these knuckle heads will still complain about it.

Thanks for the vid, a little TH but it shows the necessary part. Holds up to water like a high end loader should, sounds like a gun polymer for plastic was used. I hope you didn't throw the loader. Part 3 should be shooting a full hopper out of it.

I now know what my next hopper would be.

So how does this hopper measure the G-force? what sensor is it using? Mech type or some kind of transducer?

Ofcourse you will

If you tip the gun forward like that, irrespective of what loader it is, the 15-30 balls in the nose will stay there, and never get in contact with the drive. I have a Rotor, a Z2, a Pinokio and a Reloader and a Halo, and none of them have a sloped enough floor in the front to stop that from happening.

And why would they? - Nobody needs to shoot that much down hill - continuously - anyway

You shoulda tried to run it over with a vehicle, cuz you never know when your loader might fall out on the freeway and get run over at 80 miles an hour

Great video

Now people are complaining "the torch wasn't hot enough" "the bacon was protecting it from the heat" who uses a blowtorch on their new loader anyway? I'm impressed, the water test sold me, now just to wait for more cash and the bugs to be worked out...

Haha, that was a very entertaining video. Huge props to Virtue for that, if I wasn't already sold this would've done it.

Glad the rotor finally has competition. Maybe this will drive some aggressive price cuts. If it feeds reball as well as they claim and it isn't as picky with paint, it may have dye looking in to upgrading the rotor a bit.

And spoiler alert, the video is lame. It takes two unfunny videos for the viewer to find out that the spire is water proof and can resist a shotgun blast at around 30ft. That's it, the rest is garbage.

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.
