Ever since the halo era and other loaders, The biggest incremental improvement has been the speed of tearing down a loader. With xball being the dominant format, the ease of getting this loader apart and back together correctly is a huge plus in my book. I have been using a spire IR fir the past year, and after using the CTRL for drills this past Tues/Thurs I am very impressed. It is much more responsive when feeding.

Only issue I have had is needing to sand the feedneck way down to get it on an ego 8 feedneck, but no issues with late model guns.

Has anyone found a way to order multiple ramps with two or more promo codes to save on shipping?

Its usually at the very end
To install the ramps
I found bending the ramp together while manipulating the spring back at the same time is the easiest way

Just tested the hopper with the ramps and speed feed installed.

During practice I lost a bunch of balls cause the speed feed popped open. I found out that you need to pull the speed feed toward you to securely lock it in the closed position. However trying to open the speed feed door will be difficult unless you push the speed feed away from you first. I’m also losing about 1:10 of the balls from the pod when trying to feed it.

I then practiced with the normal lid that came with the Ctrl loader. That one was easier to open and feels a lot more secure in the locked position. Also no balls lost when loading up the hopper with a pod.

For me, the speed feed was not worth it.. maybe if they made the opening bigger for the speed feed. I find the balls just stack up like a tower and over flow out the hopper

From what I see in photos the Virtue Crown speed feed looks bigger.

Should I trial the crown speed feed or is there an aftermarket speed feed that has a bigger opening than the NTR?

The opening will be the exact same size.

It’s only the spacing between the Speedfeed “fingers” that is different with the NTR covering practically the whole opening while the Crown has wide gaps between the “fingers”.

Conflicted. Don't like how BK (& Virtue) undercuts its retailers, but I kinda need this hopper for pump tourneys now. The 280 was kinda ridiculous, but it was what I needed to make the A/T work for me.

Le sigh.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
