Good to know. I was considering the speed for my Shocker CVO. I've out shot a Spire III with it so I wasn't sure how the speed would do not being true force feed. No one at my field has a speed to test out unfortunately.

You play at Xtreme right? I haven't been out that way in a while, but if I do you're welcome to take it for a spin.

Yes I play mostly at Xtreme. Occasionally Boston Paintball, Hogan's & Matt's. If you leave RI and play in MA or CT let me know!

I tend to play mostly in NH/RI (outlaw, we have no good fields), but I'll go to Fox4 or Friendly Fire on occasion too. Never been to Hogan's Alley and Matt's would have to give me a reeeeeal good reason to go back lol

I think you really have 2 options in the market today with budget in mind

1) spire IR

2) rotor ltr

Both are fantastic loaders. I own a original rotor and a spire 3. Brother in law owes a spire IR

My personal pick is the spire but it's a very close race between the two

If those are not cheap enough for you, look into a invert Halo too. Basically it's a empire reloader b with a nylon infused shell (as long as you get the matte black ONLY) was around $70 last time I looked. Should easily last you a long time until you are ready to dump some serious coin on a top end loader

Current availability new is-
Halo too $50
Vmax + $60
Z2 $70
Speed $80
Rotor(orig) $80 <-limited color choices

I went with the Rotor. Owned a Halo too before but want to try something different. No complaints with the Halo.

My go to is a Revy with another revy as a backup along with some NOS guts stashed away. I just need something for final battles at scenario games. The revy actually works pretty good on the mini for rec play and keeps it kinda tame outside of short burst.

Probably before HK bought them. I like my speed, especially on a lightweight setup like an emek, speed and 50/45.
