Breaking in your speedfeed

Do you guys have your ways of breaking in your speedfeed rather quickly? I have a empire z2 speedfeed and it's really stiff. any ways to quickly break it in?

Put a pod in it for a couple of hours and you will be good

Why do you want to soften it? That stiffness it has when new is when its at its best.

I found mine to be a bit stiff too. I left a pod in it for a week, now it feeds like butter.

Work it like a baseball glove! Not too much, again, it has to hold paintballs in without flopping around, but you want it a little stiff so it doesn't deflect all the balls when you load!
If you're lazy, do what these people said and put a pod in it for a while.

If it's too stiff though it can make reloading take longer and less effective as some balls can trapped on top, since they're not heavy enough to move the fresh spines out of the way.

I have a new one with the exalt logo in a bright green color. Used it for the first time this past weekend and it worked amazingly. All of my paintballs easily went into the hopper every time. I didnt know they made purple ones! i want it in purple!

I bought a new HK army speedfeed. It's not hard to me. I have only had balls not go in when I missed the loader. (When I was bunkered by a guy while reloading, long story)
