Q-loader was definately the top of my list. Nothing I can think of cost me more and was used less. I loved the low profile setup of it.



Workd great with my setup and I wanted it to work so bad, but I don't know if it was the way I had set it up or what but I couldn't get the spring tension right. Either it was too soft and wouldn't push the balls through or I would have balls breaking in the Q-loaders while I played. Either way I went back to regular hoppers very quickly and have never looked back. I even had the opportunity to get their next generation for a real low cost and passed.

One of my team members love it though. He has it feeding through a tube from under the marker so maybe that has something to do with it.

3rd the Qloader,great idea poorly executed,tried it on everything from a Micromag to an Ion& SP8 and TM7,was more inconsitant than a gravity hopper
Think it would've worked better with a clock spring instead of a compression spring
I know one guy who uses his BL Mtac with one without any issues

I bought it off ebay for like $13, so not a big deal. I don't have the heart to put it back on ebay, I feel it would just be mean to sell it to someone else.
lmao! Same! I ended up using my gravity hopper rather than it back then cause it still loaded slow as hell. I might as well use it as firewood. I wouldn't feel right trying to sell that thing to some kid.

Whenever I get a friend into paintball they play get all pumped cause it was fun and get some gun that "looks like a real gun" and then a month later they switch to a speedball gun. Now I just tell them to run what gun they are about to buy by me before they get it!

Same here. I think every PB noob (including myself a while back) always wants a "real gun" marker, until they actually try both types of markers.

Not every. This was my second marker (first was a Nightmare pump back when Semi autos were fairly new):


Weight: about 14lbs.

4 years later:


Weight: about 16bs.

Just a few months ago (when it finally got retired):


Weight: about 15lbs.

What it's been replaced with:



Which I will admit is MUCH lighter...by about 8lbs probably. Though this one was pretty close in weight...not nearly as nice to shoot though I'll admit.



It depends upon the person, what they like to play, and how they like to play. I always encourage people to try different things...speedball, walk-on, big game, 2 day scenario, entry level markers, mid grade markers, realistic markers, etc...and then see what suits their style. Not everyone is going to want to lug one of my beasts around but some of us really enjoy the more realistic markers. Look at the growth of Mag Fed games...

I do agree though that a lot of new young players want to get a realistic marker as their first paintball gun until they realize how much they weigh and that lugging that around all day gets fatiguing then they want something smaller and lighter. They forget you don't get physically tired playing COD on their XBox. LOL

I bought a TPX and once I finally got it working I spent about $100 in upgrades to sell it after using it for maybe 4 games. It is definatly better in concept than going out and playing magfed against people with egos...
