Definitely not that kind of loader. Its a modern-looking loader that can keep up with 10.5 for sure, but I choked the loader out when I started to 3 finger.

I don't even know what is worth looking at now. There are so many loaders now. Virtue, Bunker Kings, HK. I remember the Rotor was good when I stepped away, don't they have a Rotor 2 as well?

In all honesty, my favorite was the Pinokio. The instant reverse it had to back out jams, like the Pulse, was my favorite feature. Does HK make that now?

Video from Sunday.

HK bought the Pinokio. I know they did make it, but I'm not sure if they still do. I think the basically made a V2 of it but call it something else. Dye does have a rotor 2. They also have the LTR, which is a costed down version of the original rotor. It's my personal go to. You get the same robust design and fast feed rate for pretty good price.

I suppose I should just spring for a high-end fast feed rate loader. I just don't know what to buy.

Honestly, if you just want a high feed rate i would get a used gen one rotor or a used LTR. Both can be had for around $50 and keep with with any gun.

Honestly im not really impressed with any of the new loaders except in overall build design. The shells are easy to take apart and clean, along with simple on/off function. But they are all kind of slow pos's, considering no one except dye makes an actual force feed loader. That said, the dye ltr/r2 is what i would get. I wasnt too upset other than they are kind of ugly.

Get the Dye R2... you can find mint ones for around $100 shipped and it has the ability to convert to high capacity.

I love my R2. It's fast, easy to take a part, and has taken a beating. My original rotor had some jamming issues as most of them did until I found a fix on here. I don't recall exactly but it was using a small oring as a spacer somewhere under the eightball.

And yeah I agree with Dakota that they're kind of ugly, but honestly I think most hoppers on the market today are ugly in their own way.

I didn't buy an R2 because I felt like i was going to break it while disassembling it at the store. the colored plastic part feels brittle.

ugh, i just got an email from Amazon that my new monitor is delayed. It was supposed be delivered tomorrow, and since Saturday is a holiday I imagine the earliest I will get it is Sunday if Amazon even delivers on Sunday.
