Q-Loader?

I'm torn on this issue.

I love the low profile, the speed that it feeds,and the speed to reload.

I hate the speed to reload the pods, the limit to 100 rounds, and the price of pods to add more to your system and the cost it's self.

That's my .02

I was not impressed; it is a large setup for the fact that you can only have 100 shots at any given time. The mounting setup is a lot less awkward then a hopper but you have to take the balance of the gun into consideration. When the Q-loader is mounted on the for grip it allows a more balanced up-n-down gun (lowers the center of gravity) but frequently it moves too much weight forward and makes the gun difficult to hold. You have to be careful when reloading or you can pinch the balls. The speed that it can feed at is un-godly but its real advantage it the fact that it reduces the chance of a ball getting chopped because it is only half in the chamber (not a real problem on most space guns, but on a pro/carbine it can help)

My opinion of the system should be taken with a grain of salt (I play pump almost exclusively) but the only person I'd recommend a Q-loader for is a front man/point man who has had extreme difficulties with a traditional hopper.

Even though I just sold my set it was not because I was not happy with it. Just outgrew it.

I had it set on my SP8. The ability to crawl and still shoot the marker while it was on it's side earned me more damn kills. They never saw (nor really heard) it coming. The lower capacity was something to adjust to but not that big of a deal. The slow loading was a big pain in the ars. The biggest issue was that it did not like large paint. It would hang the feed big time. My local fields have all but committed to using Marbs and they jam up the feed. When I used any Procap (Xball silver being my fav) the marker was awsome. Uncapped ramping and a qloader was insane. Nonone needs that kind of firepower but holy cow was it fun to rip streams like that every once in a while.

All in all I was very happy with it but warn others that it has a limited role as a novelty. If you are a woods or scenario player then use it as such. Just have a regular loader handy in case it is a bad paint day.

I like mine alot. Having a positive feed that works even upside down is cool, as well as a much lower profile. It really pays to read the directions though, as it is more complicated than any top mount loaders. I can trually attest to the feed rates as being faster than anything else. I found out the hard way by playing with one of the pods in my garage. I depressed the detent and in a blink of they eye there were a hundred paintballs spred everywhere. It takes some getting used to when using the load silo, not difficult , just different. Ancient Innovations also has a lifetime warranty on everything, but I have had to use it yet.

Used it, mounting options are great, feeds great, easy to learn. Keeps my eye on my paint consumption, but allows for som e fast shooting without the bulk of a Halo on top.

Email support seems to not exist though, have yet to get a reply on purchasing parts.

Azzy- Give them a call. They will chat your ear off. I even got some follow up calls asking me what I though when we got to chatting about some future products. Good guys.

Yes call them. They are always pleasent on the phone.

being able to shoot at any angle can come in handy. I was shooting while laying on my side out of a bunker. The bunker I was in was taking hits at body level. The kids didnt even see me laying there.

Ya just need to take the time to setup the feedtube with the correct length for your setup. I did not and chopped a ball in the socket a couple of times while reloading. I then took my time to set it up properly, and now I dont have any problems
