The winding is an easy one for me explain, at least how I have done it. Obviously, the game starts with a full wind. As the game goes on if I have a second where I'm just looking, I'll turn the wheel a little bit. I think I've run out of spring once. I instantly realized what happened, gave it a few turns, and came up shooting.

So what happens when you run out of paint? Not much. Sure it spins out, but having done that a few times, mostly intentionally, I have yet to slice a ball in half. The way the geometry is, if there is paint high enough in the neck, it will prevent the cone from spinning out. If it's the last ball holding things back, and you shoot it, that's it, spin out. Never sliced a ball though because it would take some effort and an intentional situation to put a ball in that position.

In this video you can see me winding it up, just takes a few seconds. I don't think I had to at that point, but I had a few seconds to spare. I posted this video in the PB video thread the weekend it was shot, did anyone notice the loader? And I have to say, at ~2 minutes, there is a bush in my way, you can see a lot of spray. I talked to that player after the game (I know him quite well) and he said that he was covered in spray, but after one finally got through he only got hit once more. I still felt bad, but everyone in our group knows that a bush in the way can make for a frustrating shot.

That is what I have been using the prototype on since getting the marker. They go together very nicely. The Enemy doesn't plow through paint, but can be shot pretty quickly. Very similar to what I and other pump players want when shooting their markers, the loader puts the next ball in place.

I'm just about ready to order the next set of rapid prototype shells so that I can begin small scale production. I will keep the thread up to date with that and get a list together when I'm ready to get the first batch in your hands.

This is god damn epic, could you post more updated pics and also what the weight is unloaded compared to a gravity feed pocket hopper that holds a similar amount and the price.

Very cool! Not sure how I hadn't seen this before now - I hate batteries, and this would be perfect for a couple of my set ups!

So just so I'm clear on the operation here, you can rewind this at any time even if there's still paint in the loader? And likewise load paint regardless of the amount of wind left in the spring? If that's the case I'm eagerly awaiting the sale thread for this...

If there is no paint in the loader, the cone will just spin as you wind it up, so you get nowhere. Once paint is in it and you wind it up, you can wind again/more whenever you want. If you open the lid though, it shoots all the paint out of the top... Just kiding. You can top it off whenever you feel like it. With a 50 ball pod, I reload when I don't hear any (or at least not much) paint rattling around in the loader.
