Want a new hopper but not really lookin to get a rotor or z2 or anything so i see the vmax is pretty damn cheap and im just wondering if its bc its a POS or what. I was also looking at the scion (basically the new halo) and was wondering if that was any better. Or maybe i should just get an atcual halo like off ans or something.... :unsure:
hey i play paintball

Just get a used Rotor. The Vmax is loud and inconsistent.

The VMax is terribly cheaply built and is just not worth using at all. Not a well made loader, not very good performance either.

I am qmto on youtube, i make funny videos because i love you all.
My Feedback 34/0/0

GUNS!!! Buy them please!

you're better off spending the extra $20 and getting the invert too or buying a used superloader.

As a V-Max owner I agree with a majority of the comments.
I mean I like its "sleek" design and that you don't need tools to take it apart.
Also that it uses 9 volt batteries and has an adapter so you can use a single 9 volt on it to make it legal for UWL. Makes buying batteries simple because a large pack of 9 volts will cover your marker and loader.

Although if you are planning to compete in tournaments you will either have to upgrade it pinokio parts or just buy a new loader.

TLDR: It does have some good pro's and I mostly choose it instead of my invert two when playing for fun. Although when going to compete I would over look it.

Get it cause it's cheap and it works.

SN: I have a video of me running to back right and the lid popping open once i reach it.

Edit: Personal Experience 10 BPS on DP E1 set to full auto eyes on.

V-Max is still lighter and holds a bit more balls. Works just fine for my style of play. But I wouldnt recommend it for speedball.
