I'm looking at them. My brother has one and loves it. I'd like some real facts towards the positives.

They are just way over priced. They're not bad hoppers. The lids are terrible though.

They operate off of the Pinokio technology basically, just a pinokio with out the extended nose cone.

I like mine, nothing special about it

basicaly as said above, it's a mini-pinokio

It's not a fast loader, 15BPS tops, but it works

And yes, the lid and it's shape is indeed terrible

It wouldn't be that bad if it were actually similar to a Pinokio, but the drive cone is sub-par, the gearbox isn't the toughest or the best quality, the lid is way too hard to open, and they just have a general sense of being a cheap loader. I've seen a few instances where the gearboxes have been not working, stripped, sheared off gears, or not been transfering speed from the motor; I'll try and find them and link them.

Yeah the lid may suck, but I like mine!
I don't shoot fast so it works for me!

Mike! Its really an awesome thing you get on the forum you created to talk to the players. You're an awesome guy a great example. And my idol. Your YouTube channel started an axing empire. And you to me will always be the face of paintball. You're my hero man. Thanks for the input guys. I am gonna pick one up especially at the price its at for me now.

I shoot 12.5 bps semi and its fast enough to keep up with me. I bought an epic speed feed for it because the lid is a POS. overall I say its like a rotor and a pinokio had a baby. But not a super fast baby. Haha

Use your brothers and see for yourself! honestly its fairly cheap compared to a rotor. Its a small profile pinokio...... kinda like the f1 weve all been waiting for. I like my vmax as well as any other loader ive shot

I have the Invert Halo Too and the V-Max... As far as cleaning i love the V-Max. The lid... Mines open up easily enough but there have been times while running the lid has opened. I have video proof of that... Although honestly if you are getting it for 30 and putting the epic on it, I would like to say more power to you.

well at least there are some people who give it a shot. I've owned 3 different halo type loaders. theyre all great. I'm just looking for more things that suit my style of play. and the vmax is it.
