feed tube Whats it really used for?

Okay I want to do some expermenting with the q loader, but I cant determine where to get the clear corrugated plastic feed tube material. I can find black at a hydroponics supply house, I can find Grey stuff at an electrical whole saler, but cant find the clear can anyone tell me what it used for?

Well, you can get it from Qloader, or get it in one of their starter packages. You can also use warp feed hosing.

that shouldnt have anything to do with the loader, if you put any other loader on it, it should do the same thing. if not then there may be paint somewhere where you not seeing it.....

btw...are there any other beta testers out here?

this is possible, ive had my DMforshizzle set with up to 18 prewinds, and had no problems, once i increased it to 20 it began to break some paint from smashing into the breech too hard, so it could be squishing your balls a bit when the are pinched in the breech, take apart one of your pods and start over from scratch, set it at around 13 prewinds and go up from there

really you cant outshoot 13, but more prewinds do have some advantages to certain players

Here is a subjective question. Has anyone actually field tested it as far as durability, sliding/diving into bunkers, etc. Being mounted with one point of contact facing away from the loader puts a lot of stress on the mounting system. How strong is this mount?

actually that was one of my concerns during beta testing, the plastic that the Q-Loader and mounting socket is made of is actually different than the egg and the halo. its softer and more durable than hopper type systems, even with it tightened as tight as possible it will move from side to side with a strong amount of force, it will not move when your hand is on it, but if it hits something hard enough it will shift so that it doesnt break

you can also throw them pretty damn hard without worrying about anything, ive thrown them to teamates and dont worry about breakin paint because the pod has some give to it and will flex a bit rather than break paint

even if you have only three balls in a pod, it will still move with the force as if there is 100, so maybe you should check your prewinds and check if that is the deal.....

I just ordered mine =D

I have a couple of questions.
When reloading the pod, will balls roll out of the hose?
Does small paint feed differently the big paint?
Will it feed past my detent? (stock cocker detent)

avery is right, but here is why

it wont roll out of the hose because there is a detent on the end of the reloading cap to keep the paint in

small paint and big paint wont make a difference at all

and it wont feed past any detents, the force on the Q-Pod is slightly backwards out of the feed tube rather than forward like a halo, so it will never feed past any detents

Hey, I took my q-loader out last weekend and was having a bit of trouble with it. Sometimes ( not always by any means ) the sprint would not engage when I put the pod into the socket. If I wiggled it around and slid it in and out a couple of times it would go eventually, but thats not what you want to be doing when you are belly down on the 50 with guys on either side trying to drown you in paint. Is there anything I can do to ensure the q-loader pods always activate. Part of the problem might have been some paint in the feed tube ( I broke one when loading ) but I am not sure.

if you wind it up with paint too far too tightly, it will jam the oversized ball into the bottom of the Q-Loader, once you click it into the gun, tap it firmly and it should come out, to prevent this, just stop winding balls when you feel any pressure at all

paint size does matter when it comes to extrems. When i first got it we were shooting zap primer, .691 insert, but we went to an outdoor field this weekend, and I was using .679, every time I would go to pull out a half empty pod, I would chop one in half. I shortend my hose about 1/4" and problem solved.

It sould be noted that i have my qloader mounted under my tank, and i have a long feed hose, so I notice the difference in size more so then someone who only has 7"-8" of hose. I have about 20 balls in the tube after preload...... 20 balls x.691 =13.82" 20balls x .679=13.58. thats almost a quater of an inch less hence the problem of a ball getting choped.

2 feed tubes would be enoguh for all ur needs though.
