Fusion FX problems with Prophecy Z2

Does anyone here use a Z2 with the FX combo? I got a Z2 but its been giving me problems left and right. The paint in the hopper seems to be breaking when I use it with an FX but fine with other markers. Same goes with marker, it works fine with every other hopper but with my Z2 it just doesn't like paint. I got a new firmware and a new frame on the Z2 but to no avail. Just curious if anyone else is having the same problems or I'm just the few unlucky ones.

Don't push the z2 so far Into the feedneck back it out an 1/8 inch and try again

have you tried it on a different gun? In my experience, the fx can be hard on paint.

If you would read my original comment yes I'd tried it with different markers and yes it works flawless but with the FX it would just break paint inside.

This is so weird. It actually work without paint breaking if the hopper was not fully in the feedneck. Does anyone know of a reason why it would work like this and does it not being in all the way cause the hopper to be unstable?

Was either not letting the paintball get fully into the chamber or was allowing the ball above it to drop down too far and chopping it. Yeti will have the definitive answer shortly.

Tension on the ball stack. The tolerances of the feedneck between the marker and the loader is too short for the number of balls being fed...thus blender

you might be able to source a washer or two that fits in the feedneck but does not get in the way of the ball feeding. use it as a spacer so you dont have to worry everytime you go to play
