I think its gonna be called the "cs1" hence this trademark: http://trademarks.justia.com/863/03/cs1-86303789.html

Or maybe the "cs1" is gonna be a new version of the lv1? But who knows?

The loader would be slick...I'm sure it would just about put everything on the market to shame.
I'm beginning to think the CS One is the SL version of the LV1...kind of a play on the CSL and the "one" from the LV1.
Very cool...makes my head spin thinking about a planet loader! Hoping it's the announcement at the upcoming event...not holding my breath though...most likely a Geo with the GSL refinements or possibly an inline poppit engine? Don't know...always fun to speculate!

Wouldn't be the SL version because it doesn't have "SL" in it. Morley like will be called SLV

Agreed! If it is true that they are making a hopper, you will be seeing my spire in the bst forums haha...

I'd be very interested to see it. Obviously PE has waited to jump into the Hopper Race, so Im sure whatever they are designing is gonna be good quality.
Im more interested to see how they're gonna change the game in regards to shape, operating system, etc. I cant imagine they'd make a warmed over version of someone else's design, but.... how much can one drastically change a hopper??

This is going to be crazy if they do make a hopper. All they need now is a mask and they are set. Correct me if I am wrong do they have a tank? I don't think so right!?

None that are manufactured in house. Maybe one they put their name on...

I dont see PE producing a mask, though. They dont seem to like playing Follow The Leader, and dont seem to care to produce every little thing that players use, just to have their name on it. Which is commendable in my eyes. Not every single pie is worth having a piece of, if you ask me.

^^^ agree... kind of. Lol. It is nice to not see EVERY company on EVERY product, although, saturating every facet of the market is not playing "follow the leader" so to speak, they are expanding and absorbing new product and increasing business. Thus increasing sales, allowing for more growth and better R&D allowing better quality control and a plethora of other benefits. TONS of people would buy the product, so why not? You make a strong point, a lot of people would be like... "really, PE? A mask? Really?" But from a business standpoint it makes perfect sense, if youre alreasy well established, to carry a wider product variety. I mean, look at walmart lol

I'm surprised this hasn't gotten more hits, but it is in hopper discussion. Did you see the photos on the right side of the last link?

Kind of reminds me of the old "warp feed" system, only relocated? I'm not sure I feel about placement? Does anyone think this might be an issue?

A bit, definitely doesn't look as cumbersome though.

Looks like it has an open top "cup" that rotates and uses friction to force-feed paint upwards through the channels that run around it. Pretty clever idea.

^^ with pb71, i think the location is very impractical. It will also change the balance i think, much more weiht in the rear of the gun. For speedball, i dont see this ever coming to fruition, for scenario\woodsball? definitely, so you can crouch and not been seen by a hopper sticking up.

I didn't think about balance...bu it would be pretty amazing to not have a hopper on top of the gun...not that it is a huge mass, but it would make things more streamlined...I like the idea, I LOVE that it's a planet product (should be solid like everything they make), but balance has my cogs turning again...it'll be cool to see how it pans out in the end either way!

The location is the same as the Defender. This is just application for the patent on the loader. Sure the final product will be better than this loader on a Geo with a tank or something.

^ exactly, scenario. Dont get me wrong, i think its an awesome outside the box style loader, and for scenario, best idea yet... but the rear of the gun will be heavier making running and diving differnt. I just pegged PE as a more geared toward race and not woods. Lol.
