The power tubes are red loctited on. Blue will vibrate loose after a while.

Have fun with these "efficiency" upgrades if you are using them in anything other than a pump mag. There is a reason why AGD enlarged the powertube 20 years ago

That's what I always thought too, but doesn't red locktite not allow removal with just mechanical force? It seems people are able to take off the powertube with just a bench vice and a pair of channel locks, no heat. Strange.

Anyway, hill did post a few videos of his good results with this insert. It looks promising for people who don't have access to an air source all the time. I've got access to a 5000 psi compressor so all my tanks are filled all the time anyway, making this insert not as useful for me.

The classic insert I did get to use on a pump mag, with 12ies. We'll see how that goes when the time comes, but the initial reports are encouraging.

All I would like is to get a hopper and up to 4 pods form a 45/45.

Well, was finally able to run with it for a day.
No issues at all, as far as shootdown or anything like that.
Was finally getting 4k fills. I was easily able to shoot a full 3 pods and a hopper.
Most likely could have gone well into pod 4, but I didn't play a single game where I needed to.

And that was from 45/45.

It seemed Hill had good luck with his in a Classic valve. I thought these inserts were a good thing since I've never heard anything bad and seen hill's results. Can you elaborate on your statement please, as I am interested now. I hope i'm not coming across as rude as that is not my intent I just want to hear any negative aspects of these inserts.
