How bad are new Revvy shells?
So I just bought a Revvy with an X Board off of ebay. I have heard alot of people say the shells are really terrible. Are they really that bad or are people just over exaggerating? What should I expect?
Thanks for your time.

the shells arnt bad, they do develop hairline cracks where the screws are.
the lids are pure garbage, they will break at the hinge. buy a universal speed feed if using a new shell.
the old school shells and lids never fail.

I've bought cheap used gravity VL200s just to get replacement lids. They fit on the new shells.

I had one for years before it broke...i swapped out the lid with a quick feed almost right off the bat, so i never had lid problems. But, yeah played with it for close to 5 years with no issues....

The old ones were a bit better, but I've used the newer clear shells for quite a while and they hold up as long as you dont dive gun-first. The real difference can be seen on the older lids, they just don't break...

There is a world of difference between pre BE and post BE revy shells. The newer ones are still better than other loader shells, but not by much. When we're long gone, the cockroaches will be living in pre-BE revy shells...

Pre Brass Eagle shells are made from the same material the Invert/Empire Halo too's are, the post BE shells are made from the plastic that Halo B's are made from, very brittle and prone to cracking easier. Usually, the smoke/clear/colored shells are the ones that crack easier, especially around the feednecks.
