this kinda bums me out. i really wanted this loader to do well. instead of making the loader better and making worth a $100 price tag, the price is just dropping. i was looking forward to a new super loader and not a mid-level (worth maybe $60) loader. its a shame

When you think of valken you think, cheap soft goods. I cant really see them being a serious competitor in the loader market. I would still take the Invert TOO over this.

If it was at $30 it would be a prefect pump loader. It just cant keep up at a constant enough speed to be on an electro.

I picked one up last weekend at Supergame 43 at the new price. Feeds consistently 20 bps actually. And to be honest, I would use it over my too any day. Of course, that's based off first impressions. But so far, I REALLY like this loader, especially for $80.

I was really hoping it would do well to. It was a really simply design and it doesn't look bad. The one I had couldn't keep up with psp. I sent it in and they said they fixed it. It fed even slower. Brand new batteries. Off to ebay it went.

Mind taking pictures of the loader? We have two at the field that i could not get to shoot 12.5. Mikes only peaked at 13 but it was not consistent. Sticks consistently feed 10. I wanna see if maybe yours is different because hopefully they made updates.

Still rather use a gravity fed loader.

It just doesn't look good at any price. On a pump, I'd take a Primo or Revy over it any day, and I just wouldn't even consider it for any other application. It might be good for attaching to a stand and filling 10 round tubes though.

i know a couple guys that are on a valken sponsored team... they play PSP style events with a low capped ROF ramp... v-max works well for them... but for those of us that are allowed to play uncapped semi, and can shoot fast when needed... the v-max just doenst cut it... but yeah, to agree with everyone else... the loader jsut isnt built to the standards of a loader at the price they are charging...

I got mine free in a contest and it feeds 13-15 bps consistently. I tried it the other day taking a video and it was feeding 13 bps just fine. The batteries were used for a couple weekends too. Only problem is the lame props on it. Way too soft.

For the price it's at now, I'd say it's worth it. They sacrificed speed to make a light loader that's super soft on paint, an easy open to lid and simple dis-assembly for a good price. Sure, the LED could be brighter, and sure, maybe it could use AA's instead of 9vs, but now you're just getting picky, which would be okay at 120 bucks, but for 80, you gotta love it.

Sure, what do you want pics of exactly? I timed it, and it fed a full pod in about 7 seconds. Maybe not exactly 20, maybe even 18ish, but That's still way faster than I will ever need.

I can get some pics later. I'll do a drop test if you want, I can't do a shooting video. No air. and I HATE wasting paint at the field like that..

Drop test does not really prove anything. Shooting it on a gun is what matters. Oh well i just want to see if there is anything different. If there isnt then im going to have to continue believe what has been proved by goldwaved videos and my own experiences.

So im starting to think some of them have updates then? Or Valken did something to make them feed 12.5. I really hope they did because i was super excited for this loader only to be let down.
