Nope. You could be the first!

It looks good for the price, and jt loaders are typically solid with a few livable quirks. The raceway and body look like they are based on the velocity, which was a great loader. The push button battery compartment and raceway access are big improvements.

The biggest issue with the vlo/eggs were battery life, it was generally horrible (2 nine volts a weekend). The aftermarket boards helped a lot, you could get a few weekends on the right settings. The stock board was also loud on anything but setting 1, as it would pulse the motor to keep pressure on the stack

If $ matters its the best in its price range.

I loved my EyeForce when I had it, which this seems like an evolution of that (no pun intended), so I do want to get one to try out.

I just ordered one. I loved the vlocity besides not being able to take it apart easily. Insides look similar to vlocity. Glad they got rid of the egg style door. Pretty sure it fits halo speed feeds!

The JT eVlution weighs only 13oz!!! is this correct? ansgear says so and so does there video on youtube. I'm excited

I might pick one up for the super Spyder that's in the works for my brother. It looks pretty solid, the only factor is whether I decide to go with a Halo based loader or not.

Just got my jt evlution loader today

weighs in at 13.95 oz empty with no batts. Thats using my crappy scale from harbor freight. Definitively fits 200 balls. I fit 216 with it overfilled + balls in its feedneck. Definitively keeps decent pressure on ball stack. Definitively is a force feed loader.
Feedneck is also short which i like.
Plastic is durable softer plastic then most loaders. You can squeeze it and it has some flex to it, I think the shells will hold up well.
Fits halo/universal speed feeds.
This is the lightest hopper i own other than the old school 12v revvy which is 13.25 oz and no where near the feedrate.

It's very easy to take apart however i have some difficulty getting the shells lined up near the feedneck area during re-assembly with batts in it.
The only flaw i see so far is that the inside is flat on the bottom... so balls do not want to go into the impeller/raceway area when it starts running low on paint.
The raceway is also much smaller in diameter than other hoppers like the vlocity so it does not fit many paintballs in the raceway
Also the opening in the shells to the raceway looks small

Have not used on gun yet but i think it will do a decent job.
