High-End Loaders and Pump Guns?

Why is it that I see lots of pump guns with rotors and spires, but at the field people get made fun of just for using a revvy!

My teammate gets the constant "you're so stupid for putting a Halo on your pump! you should get a gravity hopper bruh!"

I had a revvy once, but I tripped in the woods and the feed neck snapped right off. First game I ever used it too

Most people use expensive loaders, because they hate shake n shoots and they already have the loader for their other marker.

I have my opinions, but people will use what they are comfortable it.

Keep your pump hand strong!!!!

These days revvys are cheaper than winchesters.

Some people like gravity loaders because they feed fine for someone who doesn't heavily AT, don't like using batteries, or are purists.

Some people like older agiated hoppers because they tend to feed fine, even while ATing, and tend to be very tough.

Some people like using high end loaders because thats what they have, they use on their semis, or like the comfort of knowing that the loader will always have one it the breech.


Who cares what other people say. Use what you like because of your reasons.

I stick with my Tripod Revvy, Sportshot and Winchester.

And I agree with you Frank. Never thought I see such a small piece of hollow plastic be worth $40.

Thanks guys!

And yeah, what the hell is this? A ****ty piece of plastic for $40? Hell, I could make my own Winchester out of a recycled milk box.

I'm thinking of selling my revvy for some extra cash in my pockets and just using my rotor on my hammer. I use it for my eNMEy and my eXTCy anyways...

Sounds interesting and it's an idea I have for some time recycling plastic caps and bottles will be cheaper..... If you get any tutorial on how to make the mold please share it with the nation....

Revys work perfect for pumps because they don't force feed they agitate. + I got matching OG blue Revy shell. Love my Revy I use it for big games mostly because it will except a full pod and allows me to play all day without leaving the battle for paint or air.



I had to turn the torque down on my Rotor and underbore my barrel so it wouldn't push more then one ball threw my pump. I only ran the rotor until I got something that worked better, the Revy.

IIRC, the Z2 Prophecy drive system was originally designed for a pump hopper, but works well enough to run on electros as well.

There's something to be said for pumping the gun and knowing that a ball is going to be loaded in.

That said, I stick with my Sportshot to save weight, even if it misses a shot or two.

Right on.

With agitated loaders like a Revy, you at least know you only have a couple shots left because the eye is no longer blocked and the motor keeps spinning.

I prefer loaders with a raceway and a little bit of stack tension. You get an audible notification when you are low on paint because the motor makes a different noise with an empty raceway. When you notice this, you'll have a few more shots left compared to the Revy where the sensor is right above the feed. You should know ahead of time how many shots your loader has left in between the raceway and bottom of the feed neck until you need to reload, or if you are out of paint, to make them count!

I always shot a Spire on my T2/S6's. I had a revy, but I like the profile of the Spire.

I generally use my winny on my S6 unless its a big game. Then I use my revvy. However, I have been known to use an empty plastic coke bottle just to turn heads. (they made round ones at Christmas time one year).

Everyone has their reasons for choosing the equipment they use. Some that play pumps like the lower cost of the markers, some like reduced cost of paint, others like the marksmanship skills it requires and/or the lightness of the rig or the simplicity, etc....so not everyone that plays pumps, plays them for all the same reasons. So why would anyone expect that everyone would prefer the same pump marker or set it up the same?

I tend to play a lighter rig, Ninja 13/3k bottle, Deadlywind Carbon Fiber barrel and Winchester hopper. Since I am playing rec-ball, the compact size and lightness is a big plus for me. That said, I also have and tried an Inception Pico hopper and larger CF tanks. I do not like the heaviness of these rigs, so I rarely (never) use that kind of set-up.

Some players that are much better (and younger) than me, like their Rotors, Spirers, Revys Halos and Picos, especially guys playing tournaments and need to know there will be paint in the chamber for every shot. I see most of these players using 45 and 68ci bottles with the bigger high-end hoppers. Obviously, they are not using a pump for ALL the same reasons as me, so their set-ups are very different.

So while some may prefer a different hopper, tank, barrel etc... you have your own ideas of why you play pump and you should use what you like.

I use a winchester or a sport shot for bigger games. I wouldn't say I've had any problems with the gravity hopper unless I was using auto trigger. But the weight of a rotor or a halo is a huge difference from the gravity feed hoppers.
To help with that I bought a pico loader and I have found that the weight is manageable.

A lot of pumpers pride themselves in using less paint and they will call out anyone else that plays other wise. To me it doesn't matter and it's my preference. But I do enjoy playing speedball with a winchester just to brag when I shoot electros out.

Stick to my good, ol' gravity fed hoppers. NO addition weight. I take so much time between shots that I don't need anything faster.

I started using the Winchester when playing limited paint in the OSC. No point in a big hopper when you have 30-50 balls. Now I'm just used to it, feels weird having a larger hopper on my pump
