Ever new idea or "revamped" idea gets scrutinized regardless of the product or its application. We're all just throwing out our opinions. The idea of having zero reload times is a big negative for me. Those 3-8 seconds are invaluable for the opposing player.the strike loader takes that away. 1200 rounds of constant coverfire can turn the tide of any game. Its just a novelty, something completely unnecessary. Something your local paintballer concocts in his garage. Not retail worthy in my mind sorry.

I also dislike the MICO backpack. Granted when I was in I carried my M249 and M240 with four drums but that's how it was. The backpack would be a hindrance in my mind. I hated putting hydration camelbaks when I went off the FOBS.

Investors are not dumb.

Speaking from personal experience, the way it NOW works is that an investor will attempt to word the contract so their percentage remains constant while their monetary contribution includes donations from 'their' crowd-funding campaign.... The one you didn't realize you were obligated to head.

I've seen start-ups bust their *** just to give their contributions to an investor to purchase a share of their company! Even worse, the excess went back to the investor!

In business, a good lawyer pays for itself.

This thing is HEAVY. It weighs damn near 7lbs empty now add 1200 paintballs, this thing is going to be close to 10lbs when full. I like to run a light load and this thing I'd anything but light. Does not bode well for hot summer games. Which now that I type I am curious how 1200 balls will hold up to heat in a large plastic container in direct sunlight...

It holds 1200? I wonder why i got it into my head that it was 2000.... Egh doesnt seem too terribly worth it to me other than the tank application some folks mentioned

1200 paintballs would hold up quite lovely...not saying they would shot worth a crap after staying in there for a while. LOL

The weight issue can be fixed. Hook it up to a phantom and the gun weight makes up for it.

So, with my scenario setup, I have 6 pods and a Pinokio loader. About 1000 Shots. Not too bad to be honest. It's enough rounds to probably get me through a firefight, yet not too much that I am lugging paint that I might not use for a while on the field. However, if I wanted to carry less, that is just as easy as not loading up all my pods.

Personally, not really interested in this product. Sure it's a neat niche product, sure the tech used in it can be used in a Traditional Hopper, but in the end, it seems like too much hassle for an item that plays an important role in paintball.
