I, as well as numerous other people on pbn have had a problem with their v-max reaching anywhere above 10-11 bps with any consistency. Does anyone else have this problem?

Heard that you could loosen the screw that hold the agitator down a bit. If it screwed down to tight it slows the motor down too much. Worth a shot since its so easy, but this is not first hand experience.

Damn...I wish the review were up already. I had two V-Max loaders, now I have one. I used them both for testing for a video review, and they both feed very slowly. It's just a slow loader, that struggles to reach 12bps.

I would really like a video of that, because I'm calling complete bullshit.

Gerber, Surefire, TOPS, and Cold Steel all suck the big one. Buy quality products, not junk. :-)

Here is a video for you Stick. I personally have not used a V-Max so I do not want to say anything pro nor con about it.

Well, that's certainly not 20bps; it sounds more like 16. Even so, I have no idea how he got it to do that. I tested two of them, next to other loaders. They never reached that speed at all. I'm calling shens, since I highly doubt that one V-Max I got from Kaz in Canada, and another from Hustle Paintball in the US have issues. I'm guessing he did something to it.

Edit: I just checked it in Adobe Audition. It's exactly 15bps in that clip.

So, I'll stick to my calling of bullshit on the 24bps "ripping" that was mentioned, as well as the guy in the video asserting his shooting speed.

It also sounded like it wasn't feeding a consistent rate. It sounded like the rate of fire was varying a bit.
