Virtue's speedfeed is about $35-40 and that includes the back piece.
It's the newest version of the crown mated to the back piece.

I like it, just don't need the hopper

reball test:

Looks amazing, maybe this is the ultimate loader for reballs, and at the same good with fragile paint.

Spire feeding a spire?

Exactly. We need to promote the spire as the greatest thing ever (it shoots balls without a marker!). It would at least put some more competition on the market, and it would help the used loader market.

It is interesting that there even exists a used loader market. At least the durability is coming up somewhat with the price. I remember when un-agitated viewloaders would break in normal use.

How prone to jamming are reballs typically? I've never shot them and don't plan to, so that's not a factor in picking a loader. However, the shooting with this interesting rig was far from constant at X BPS on full auto. I see what they are doing, but it honestly wasn't overly convincing.

Reballs jams a lot, atleast those we have at our field. I have yet seen a stock rotor shoot more than 2-3 pods without jamming, and then they worked good. You have to pull the shark-fin all the time.

Rotors with seed kit installed works pretty good and I have a halo with smartguide TL that works flawless, but it eats batteries. Too bad Halos are a PITA to take apart, and much heavier than the others.

New reballs are less prone to jamming, so you'll have to test with old, dirty ones if you want the real results.

But when I play with reballs, I pay about $7 for a full day of play, shoot as much as you want and air included.

Virtue also is testing out a new prototype of fingers which will stop the loss of any paintballs from flying out of your loader and still filling faster than any speed feeds on the market so be sure to maybe keep your eyes open for that once it gets launched.

I will be posting a short video of them soon.
