Viewloader Revolution - great entry level loader. You can use a hose clamp and attach these to the spyder stovepipe. These loaders also fit the classic markers that have tight feednecks, like autocockers. Very light, batteries last forever, great loader for autocockers, autococker pump guns, spyders, etc

Viewloader Eggy - I don't like this loader at all. It's extremely back heavy, and when diving or running with the loader, it's terrible off-balance construction causes this loader to fly off guns like a football. The flex prop works well, it feeds fast, but you need a VERY strong, clamping feedneck to use this loader or it's going to fly off your gun.

Viewloader Vlocity Jr (stock) - great loader, just barely fast enough for any style of field or tournament play. Very light, but the buzzing noise when it's on will drive you crazy. This loader EATS batteries. Holds alot of paint, and the lid opening is HUGE which is awesome for loading, but the battery consumption and buzzing is a major turnoff. Probably one of the largest lids / feed hole in paintball. You literally can stick your entire hand into the mouth of the Jr, which makes it impossible to spill paint when loading.

Viewloader Vlocity (stock) - I usually ran mine at setting #3. Very similar to the Vlocity Jr, except the lid is smaller and the angle is different, holds about 10 or 15 more paintballs, and the chip has 8 adjustable speeds. The funny thing is that I always set my Vlocity to run at the same setting the JR comes defaulted at, #3. Vlocities do tend to jam alot, and the "ghost problem" can rear it's head every now and then. If your velocity doesnt feed faster than 15BPS, you might have this issue. Viewloader doesn't recognize the problem, so you'll be stuck buying a new loader. Loader eats batteries, the buzzing noise is annoying, but it's light and small, works great for airball / speedball. I wouldnt take this loader into the woods

Viewloader Eye Force - not a bad loader, but it's expensive, heavy and odd shaped. Drive cone is very small, loader does tend to leave alot of gaps in the steams, and can jam alot. The anti jam works, but it'll cause a gap in the stream. It feels like a brick on your gun, because of the extremely wide ear end.

Halo B - Halo B's work great for about 80 to 100 cases and then they are done. The motor will burn out after 80+ cases. The loaders function like they should, they are battery effecient, extremely fast, but my biggest gripes are the LED light not staying on (blinks every 5 or 7 seconds, hard to tell if it's on or not), and it's "antijam function" is to simply blink like a christmas tree, forcing you to clear the jam, AND shut the loader off and turn it back on. But they function perfectly.

Halo B V35 - same as the Halo B, but with an 6 speed adjustable board. I usually ran mine at setting #3, which is about what the stock Halo B runs at in terms of speed

Reloader B - Reloader B is better than the Halo B, simply because it doesn't require you to power cycle the loader when a jam occurs. Extremely fast, at setting 2 with fresh batteries, or setting 3 (max speed), the loaders can "run away", when the mic on the board hears its own motor spinning, and confusing it for the gun shooting. I prefer the Reloader B over the Halo B, simply because Reloaders dont require you to shut them off when a jam occurs. Reloader B's also have battery saving technology, so after 10 or 15 minutes of use, the loader shuts off. This can be decieving because the game starts, you shoot 10 or 15 balls in the air, then your gun stops shooting! So if you have alot of time between games, power cycle your loader. Also, when walking with your loader on, the jiggling of paintballs will cause the loader to try to spin. So make sure you are turning your loader off after each game or you'll eat batteries

Reloader B2 - very similar to the B, just with some other adjustment settings. If you get a B2, always keep the manual in your gearbag. They are a pain in the ass to program, and if the mic isn't set properly, it may not hear the gun shooting and you'll have to change the mic setting

Reloader - like the Revolution but sound activated and uses a magnetic lid. I personally like the Revolution better

Hardcorps Torque - George Spurlock is the person who invented the Pulse, and then invented the Torque. Not a bad loader, but with the recent price drops on the Halo B & Reloader B, these loaders are overpriced. At $70 I'd skip it, $40 to $50, I'd consider it. Speedfeeds aren't available, customer service is patchy (George Spurlock is just one person). It's a good budget speedball loader, but I'd take a Halo B or Reloader B over it at the same price point. Loader does jam sometimes, and eats batteries like crazy, but it's got a great, simple design. These loaders are extremely fast with fresh batteries, and will max out any gun

Draxxus Pulse - Skip it. When they first came out, it was a good loader at the time. Now, it's too heavy, too big, and since Draxxus is no longer offering any replacement parts or warranty on these loaders, I'd skip them. They are fast, but they are heavy and the feednecks snap like crazy. Also, I've taken shots into the drivetray tabs on the side and put paintballs right through the tabs into the drive unit. These are good loaders, but since you can't get replacement parts for them, or get them repaired anymore by Draxxus, I would skip it. If you can find these loader for $50 or less I'd consider purchasing one, but I personally recommend skipping this loader if you are a frequent player.

Pinokio - still my favorite loader on the market. The drive system is simple. The loader never jams, it's very battery efficient, uses a bullet proof feed system, and the "always on" LED and instant on power button is awesome. I also like the "low battery" LED indicator, when the battery starts to die, the loader will go from green to red. This loader is rediculously light, as light as a Vlocity, and holds 270 paintballs, 400 with the nose. This added capacity has allowed me to make moves on the field I wouldn't have been able to make with other loaders. You buy the pinokio for two reasons, bulletproof consistent feeding and capacity. It's not the fastest loader on the market for "backyard experimental 50bps video making", but for REAL paintball playing on the field, keeps up with any gun on the market, and works great. Still my personal loader of choice, its so simple I love it. It's got a high, swept back design, making it very easy to hide behind bunkers when you tilt your gun. For me personally and my playing style, the Pinokio is still my loader of choice.

Dye Rotor - absolutely the most advanced loader to ever hit the market. Sleek, sexy, tiny, very well put together and EXTREMELY fast, brutally fast, the Rotor is the choice for people who like speed, and like small loaders. If you like small loaders, or you are looking for an extremely fast loader for "backyard experimental 50bps video making", get the rotor. Its quiet, battery efficient, the lid doesnt require any break in period, tool-less dissasembly, this loader is so advanced it's practically alien technology. The rotor is 4 ounces heavier than the vlocity. For players seeking a small profile loader, get this. The drive assembly is so advanced, expect 1 jam per 10 cases, easily cleared by just yanking the trigger. This is my second favorite loader on the market right now. This is a great step up from people who own vlocities

Magna - like the Reloader B, but with a swooped back shell and magnet clutch drive. You buy the magna for the shell design, not for much else. It's fast, works great, but the magnet clutch is overrated. The added capacity from the stock Reloader B is a huge plus.

Prophecy - UPDATE- After recieving a couple Prophecies to test out, it's basically a Reloader B2 with Magna internals, and a tooless dissasembly. Feeds fast, works great, but honestly I think I'd use a Reloader B w/ Anti Jam Freeway and get the same performance as the Prophecy. If you have one, and you love it, cool.

Viewloader Quantum - junk, throw it away

Viewloader Force - any sort of "always on" loader is garbage, keep saving your money and get the good stuff

Spyder Fasta - good loader, shares alot of the same drive components with the pinokio

Tippmann SSL-200 - good loader for the SPPL woodsball tournaments, odd lid angle.

^yup, i personally love mine, i play snake and it takes a little while to get used to but now i can take that and two pods instead of 3 pods with my magna(with the regular capacity bottom in magna and w/o nose on pinoikio) and it allows me to get out ther alot quicker.

Really nice review mike.

No one can ever prevent a Hopper's Motor or the Circuit Board from Burning Out, theyre not like the Motor in a vehicle which requires lubrication (motor oil) to prevent from burning out and cease to run efficiently and the only way to fix that problem is to have a Backup Motor/Board for your Halo and thats by going to an Authorized Dealer or a Third Party that stocks and sells the neccessary parts.

This is correct, if you race RC Cars (like I do), inside of an electric motor you have brushes and a commutator. these wear out over time, along with the bushings inside the motor

They are just made to fail after 80 to 100 cases, nothing you can do about it. You just have to replace the motor

when you're behind a bunker, it actually works for you because it's easier to tilt the loader behind the bunker

I rarely take hopper hits with my pinokio, usually I get hit in the feedneck, not the loader nose

the beauty of the pinokio is how simple it is

bend sensor (unbreakable)
RC Motor & Gearbox (built like a tank, can handle 3 times the voltage it's used at)
Board
Shell

There is nothing to the pinokio, its got the least amount of parts out of any high performance loader on the market. Thats why its as light as the vlocity

You won't have any problems with it, ever

Yesterday i tried my reloader b for the first time out of the box. I think it was on speed three. Well, the thing turned into a blender and ate up about 5 or 6 balls. Pain in the butt to clean. Does speed three always do that? Any way, if you have an eggy, here is something you can do with it!

Great review +++

Picked up a Pionokio two weeks ago, I love it. I can't believe how light it is. The capacity it great too, you get a noticeable longer shooting period before your first reload.

Pionokio FTW.

But the Proph looks badass aswell.

I tried out my Pinokio for the first time yesterday, It was pretty cold too outside! Boy that hopper rocks! The paint got so brittle due to the cold but not one paintball broke in the Pinokio and it fed great. For this rec game the long nose was awesome. I did not have to reload during most games, very nice!

BTW Mike pin this, this info is very good.

Just go for the Rotor dude. Getting a Reloader B (what's that gonna be $70 all said and done?) will only work against you saving up for the Rotor. Unless you need a loader now, which I wouldn't expect anyone to this time of year, save up.

I 100% agree with Mike on the "Anti jam" mode for the Halob. I f'n hate it. I will be playing reball and the halo will just jam up. It will stop while I am about to get bunker'd or behind a bunker. I will have to clear the jam which takes 2-4 secs, shut it off which takes 3-5secs. Turn it back on that takes another 3 secs, and by the time you are all ready you are out of the game and it has taken 10-12 secs to get your loader going again. Very very dumb for them to do this, The best part is this was considered an upgrade in the Z board you could buy, then it was in the V35. I am glad Kee Action got rid that in the Reloader but it just blows my mind that the company they bought kept it when really all it could of done was blink twice and clear the jam and press the button 1 time instead of making you hold it. All in 5secs instead of wasting 10-12 secs.

I tired the rotor and it is great, def, I just wish it had a few more settings(ball tension, Speed. etc) and didn't get the last 4-5 balls stuck in there. This loader is pretty crappy with Reball, but it can be done if you fill half way and keep shaking it, the trigger is useless for the reballs but it is such a nice feeling, very low profile loader. If I didn't play Reball so much, I would buy it, but I am still getting that Pinokio soon because it is great at both. Lets just hope Dye is working on a reball attachment because I really like it. I have yet lubed up the cup, I ask and will try it next time when I see one.

I 100% agree with Mike on the "Anti jam" mode for the Halob. I f'n hate it. I will be playing reball and the halo will just jam up. It will stop while I am about to get bunker'd or behind a bunker. I will have to clear the jam which takes 2-4 secs, shut it off which takes 3-5secs. Turn it back on that takes another 3 secs, and by the time you are all ready you are out of the game and it has taken 10-12 secs to get your loader going again. Very very dumb for them to do this, The best part is this was considered an upgrade in the Z board you could buy, then it was in the V35. I am glad Kee Action got rid that in the Reloader but it just blows my mind that the company they bought kept it when really all it could of done was blink twice and clear the jam and press the button 1 time instead of making you hold it. All in 5secs instead of wasting 10-12 secs.

I tired the rotor and it is great, def, I just wish it had a few more settings(ball tension, Speed. etc) and didn't get the last 4-5 balls stuck in there. This loader is pretty crappy with Reball, but it can be done if you fill half way and keep shaking it, the trigger is useless for the reballs but it is such a nice feeling, very low profile loader. If I didn't play Reball so much, I would buy it, but I am still getting that Pinokio soon because it is great at both. Lets just hope Dye is working on a reball attachment because I really like it. I have yet lubed up the cup, I ask and will try it next time when I see one.


agree 100%

Hey Mike, what about ricochet loaders, they share a lot of their guts with the pinikio loaders. would you recomend them?

and i know they're garbage, but you forgot Extreme Rage loaders

I am qmto on youtube, i make funny videos because i love you all.

The economy happened; I presume :(

But yeah, They may be having design/machine issues, problems/bugs, or just not enough cash to support the operation.

OR hopefully they're lab-testing it to work out ALL the bugs, and not leave that part up to the players...

He puts one on a mini in one of his shows. That should suffice, seeing as the mini is smaller than the G3.
I think it was the pinokio show. But it might have been the mini show. I forget...
