I'm not sure what you originally paid, but it looks like vlocity loaders are in the range of 50-60 dollars used.  Assuming that's the price range, and assuming that you're still comfortable with buying a used loader, I think you're looking at some of the following if you can find them:

 

1. Prophecy v2 - smaller capacity but advanced loader system similar to the modern Z2 platform but with a less durable shell and less advanced board.  Seems to have good batter efficiency. $55ish

2. Pinokio - high capacity loader that will hold a ton of paint but some perceive it to be a target or in the way.  Not fully able to disassemble but you can access the internals after removing the nose cone. $60ish

3. Valken V-max2 - second best capacity after the pinokio, this will be a newer loader with toolless access that fixed feedrate speed of the original V-max.  Still uses two 9-volt batteries and will drain them if left in during unuse.  $60

 

Other options that should be out there but are deficient for various reasons are the Spyder Fasta, Invert Halo Too, and Empire Scion.

whats wrong with the scion? i might do the scion/events combo deal. as its 140 for a good mask and decent hopper. i mean they are better than my jt revvy and jt raptor mask.

Nothing wrong with the scion, it's just about got the internals of Empire's premier loader, with the shell of the... Halo too?

its got the shell of pretty much any traditional halo
and the scion works great, although it is quite heavy

Third that. They are the lightest loader and one of or the simplest loader to operate.

LL8 couldn't come any faster.

yes i have heard nothing but good things about the pinokio, but i need a new mask as well, and i can get a scion+events for 140.

More or less everyone covered the issues with the Scion.  I'm just a cleaning and access snob.

 

The Scion has the same internals as the Prophecy, but in a Halo Too shell.  This will make it a little smaller, a little heavier, and harder to access/clean internals than other loaders mentioned.  You shouldn't have any issues with actual feed performance, however.  It will also generally be newer than all but the V-Max2.

I like my Spire. :)


Did you ever notice how Valken Graffiti smells like chocolate? Then, when you leave some in a pod on a hot day, they smell like melted chocolate!
