JT Revolution and JMJ Vortex Impeller

I picked up the new JT Revolution at Sports Authority for $39.95. I thought it was a great deal even at retail, especially considering the price at which people insisted on selling them used.






I was pleased to see the shell was not the hard brittle plastic of the previous generation. However, the lid material appears to have remained the same. It doesn't give a very convincing snap when closed firmly, and popped open on me once at the field during a dive onto dirt.

I used it in stock form for one day before buying a JMJ Vortex Impeller, hoping it would fit...





And it still fits... barely. The base of the impeller around the shaft rubs a little bit on the sides of the shaft opening. It makes a very slight squeak that I'm sure will go away as it wears over time. It was also a very tight fit onto the motor shaft.

Back out on the field, I was much happier with the JMJ Vortex Impeller. I barely noticed the revy was running in comparison to the big stock impeller.

I think I could say that for the shell material, but maybe not for the lid. I also don't think these new shells are compatible with the ViewLoader shells. There was a post a while back where someone tried and they didn't quite fit with each other.
