Lightbulb issue with feedneck

first off let me start by sayin I love the Ego platform...I have been using the Ego since the 07 model...had each of them up ..and really loved my 09 and 10 vicious ego's

I recently bought a Ego 11...super impressed...got it in Regal 2


everything is super nice and just what I expected....gonna order a dart kit soon


my issue is with the feedneck....did the design change..cause with the 09 and 10 I did not have this issue

the issue happens with whatever hopper I try...rotor..Z2 ...or even my new spire

the arm that u use to clamp down...is really hard to turn even thou the hopper isn't that secure...i'm tryin not to over tighen at all ...but it's super hard to close...and it's already grinded some of the anno away already...kinda bummed about that

never had this issue with the other ego's...

I've had this problem with every Ego and Etek I've owned. The feedneck lever just has to be tightened down tightly so the clamp feature works well I think. I believe that's what the new Geo 3 brass insert is helping to change.

About the hand tightening part

If your afraid of breaking it, just loosen the clamp screw and tighten after the hopper is in place
