since i didn't see a thread on this already, this is the new V-max 2 which Valken claims feeds faster than anything else, is reliable and won't jam and is basically straight out better than the rotor, z2, and spire.

Was I the only one hoping that they'd ask "But will it blend?" at the beginning of their video?

i'm digging that music. but you really have to see the testing they did, if any, especially for the speed. a rotor survived a car fire.. it's pretty much impossible for one to fall apart, and it only jams when paint is oblong, which tournament paint shouldn't be.

Still looks ugly. Would I buy one vs the new pinnokio/ the old pinnokio? Maybe

So it feeds faster than the Rotor, and all it took was a new set of paddles? We'll see about that.

It still doesn't look like they made any attempt to make any sort of downward gradient on the inside to feed better, and the music made me think this was a parody. I'll wait until it's tested before I judge too harshly..

I may give one a go if my Halo or Z2 ever give up the ghost.

Easier to clean than a Halo or Revy but still decently priced. Seems good enuff for my needs.

But being as my Z2 is still pretty new I won't be in market for some time I figure.

Wow that video is stuck up. Valken fails so hard on the original v-max and now they act like they have been making the best loader for years. Child please. They couldnt copy a pinokio right the first time.

The biggest fail is that they use the same shell. But why would anyone copy a Spyder Fasta in the first place?

Weren't really slamming. Just providing "Graphs" to show how it performs compared to the others. The only real "Slamming" part was the rotor clip.

To those of you saying all they need for it is a "ramped/angled" piece so it feeds better, that was something they did with the original V-Max..... I have it in mine...

The Vmax is lighter than a Pinokio. Its about the same weight as a shake and bake, surprisingly. Its right around a pound. And the feedneck fits Autococker stovepipes. Perfect for Eblades, semis, or snipers.

probably should have changed the name so that the assocation with the original vmaxx wasnt there
