The new Valken VMAX2 is a tournament ready tool-less loader. With high feed rates, itís faster than any other loader on the market. The feed paddles have been reengineered for a more powerful & efficient flow of paint into your gun. We kept the same low profile, lightweight, and durable shell design. Consistent with the VMAX model, jams are still a non-issue. The best part of it all, itís only $99.00. The Valken VMAX2 paintball loader Ė BETTER, STRONGER, FASTER! FEATURES: Tournament ready & tool-less New improved motor with higher speeds 6 blade feed paddle with lifting paddle technology Low profile, light weight durable shell design The most reliable paintball loader Capacity : 220 rounds

Picked this up during Black Friday sale. I got the plain black, since it's really the only color other than camo patterns. The Vmax2 works great and does its job. A small thing I don't like about it though is you have to hold the on/off switch for at least 3-5 sec before it turns off. Not a big deal though. The Vmax2 is driven by a wheel in the feed neck. So the paddles only turn when it reads there is a ball in the feed neck. So sometimes you'll have a few balls inside your loader but it won't recognize them. Again, not a big deal for me, just add more paint overall great loader, fast, cheap.

The loader was (and probably still is) on sale on ANSGEAR for like 40 bucks or so depending on the hydrodip. Great loader, considering I got it as my first battery operated loader to go with my first electric marker (Proto Rize).

The only two issues I have with it is the stock lid (because it is sometimes tricky to get it to open) and the pattern coating (which is also on the feedneck, scratches off, and makes a bit of a mess in the main chamber).

Performance wise, it has absolutely no issues, it isn't even loud (for such a reduced cost, it surprised me). One time I was using cheap paint, I though it jammed, but the balls had simply melted together (because it was like 101F in the sun that weekend).

So, considering everything, it is a wonderful loader.
There are speedfeeds available for it if you've had enough with the lid, but performance is impressive.

+: budget, performer, ACU
-: coating on the feedneck makes a mess, lid sticks occasionally, kinda tricky to put the top and bottom back together.

The vmax2 is supposed to be better than the vmax1 and I'll have to say it is. The shells are the same for both models but the gears and paddles have changed. It's rated for 30bps but I might get 25-28 on fresh batteries. The hopper is really light but at times it doesn't feed reliable. It was probably my bad paint though since it was humid and the paint was softer than normal. Good hopper for the price I would choose this over a halo and scion.

For the money it is hard to beat this hopper. I have it for a backup or loaner. Valken is the forefront of budget paintball in my opinion. It isn't the sexiest hopper on the market, but it is not bad looking either. Turn the batteries around after you are done playing and the parasitic draw is not an issue.
