Oops! I missed some of the non-current loaders that may still be in use. Are there any others you can think of? Maybe the Egg?

Pinokio SPEED.

I have a SPEED, Rotor, Prophecy, Vlocity, Empire B2, JRNY, and two Pinokio 250/400s. I choose the speed.

Currently using a Spire260, but will likely be using a Pulse RDR for the season.

After shooting almost every hopper on this list my preference is the Spire 260. Simply the best loader on the market today IMO.

Really depends, but my highest end loader is currently a Rotor, so that's my vote.

But i often use a revvy or winchester these days.

For guns with eyes - Spire, its silhouette combined with the 260 shell is simply awesome.

For shooting old autocockers and such that need a constant feed speed, Pinokio - thing just does not jam and feeds right down to the last ball.
