Q-loader or warpfeed?
 
I've been slowly considering purchasing a new loading system that will decrease my profile (get rid of the hopper). My struggle is deciding if it would be better to get a Q-loader or a warpfeed. If any of you have experience with either or both, could you give me your opinions.

It depends on how you want to reload. With teh Q, you have to wait until the whole pod is gone to reload. With the warp you can just top off w/ a pod anytime.

Does the warpfeed tend to get in the way in any manner?...or even the Q-loader for the matter? Any awkwardness during play?

I love my Qloader. I had been putting off getting one for a long time, and I am glad I finally got it.

You do not necessarily have to wait until the whole Qpod to be empty to reload. Any remaining pballs will be retained in the Qpod. But you cannot reload a Qpod in the "field" unless you bring your silo and reloading socket while playing. I carry 4 pods, and that is enough to last me several games with my SP8.You just have to remember that you only carry 100 rnds instead of 200.

My Qloader(s) are mounted horizontally under the barrel on my Mag and SP8. It does not get in the way at all, or make it cumbersome. I wanted to get a Warp for a long time, but the size and profile it left, was not was I was looking for.

I have a warp on my blazer and mag and love it. You have to try it and see if you like the feel. It is hard to get used to but once you do the warp will be your friend.

Stechele- great review on the q-loader, it really helped answer some of my questions.

netsurferdude2- unfortunately trying one out first is probably not an option. "It is hard to get used to"...Could you elaborate a little bit more?

I think what he means is that it is bulky and adds weight on an odd side of the gun...depending upon where you mount it it looks like a toaster strapped to a paintgun and probably feels somewhat like one too. If you can adjust to that sort of thing you will probably be fine...if not then you are better off with a Q-loader. I have never used one in a game.....got to try a few in the staging/target area and just HATED the feel of them...but I am sure they are dandy if you can get used to it. I think for ergonomics the Q-loader has 'em beat.

What about the whole 'feed length' issue with the Q-loader? Why is it so critical to have the correct length on the connecting hose? It doesn't make sense to me that with a simple spring pushing on the balls, you would get more chops if the tube length were off. Anyone have any explanation or experience with that?

If the feed tube holds 7 1/2 pballs, then half a paintball can/will hang out into the mounting cup. When you turn the Qpod to load a fresh qpod, you can/will cut/shop that paintball, and make a mess in the feedtube and Qpod. The chops are between the socket and the Qpod, not in the breach.

Warps are...different to say the least. I love my cheapo one I snagged for $25 because the guy thought it was broken. I mean, I rarely ever use it, since I dont play semi as much, but, its definatly fun. It does take some time to get used to, but, once you do, its not that bad. For some reason, its just feel more....secure, having your warp with your hopper on the side of the gun. No hopper on the top with the insecurities of worrking about it bonking off of things, or trying to reload while shooting, and having to reach up high screwing up your aim.

If you have a center feed, it'll feel even more akward at first, but, youll learn to get used to the smaller profile, and better line of sight it gives you.
