Bunker Kings Ctrl loader

So it seems bunker Kings and virtue are at it again.

Once again doing a kick starter for a "new" product

Looks like $160 for the pre-order price for a hopper that, let's be honest is maybe a little above a spire ir

I'm not even sure what bunker Kings is contributing to this really, the players to test it? Everything inside looks to be virtue tech

I'm always confused who goes for these campaigns. Like in the video I watched they basically told you nothing important about the hopper, how long do the batteries last? What kind of capacity does it have? They keep saying it's lightweight but never actually give you a weight, they say it's low profile but don't compare it to anything else. They basically tell you nothing important about the hopper and I'm supposed to give you money for that?

I'm sure it will be decent, if I had to guess it's a spire ir with a few extra bells and whistles which there is a market for

I was thinking the same thing, looks very similar to the TFX or the Spire internally.

Kinda looks like the vmax. I’m not looking into getting one, I have like 5 million hoppers anyways. But if one comes up for cheap in a couple of years like how I got my RDR then I’ll pick it up.

Seems like a cheaper $ spire3, more so than an IR. I do like the dual spring ramps idea, and that speed feed looks nice, but the led angle indicator seems useless/gimmicky. I was already considering getting an IR, but if the reviews are positive in might get one of these next year instead.

Ehh, they took out a lot of what makes the 3 the 3 though. No indicator lights for reloading (which is what I was assuming those LEDs would be fire but it would be very odd if they just didn't mention it) no Bluetooth programming, tooless lid removal /swap.

Makes more sense for virtue to use the ir board as well, cheaper and if they have to split the profits with bunker Kings why use the 3 board with accelerometers, tray sensors and Bluetooth when you don't need to?

I was wondering the same thing on the angle thing, is that the whole reason they put the LEDs in? I was kind of assuming they had more functions than just that but they sure didn't mention it if they did

You know one of the reasons why I feel I don't like bunker Kings is all their marketing, it just feels gimmicky and like they are trying to avoid telling you the truth about something

Like what the hell is a"balanced hopper"? And why do I even need one? I've been playing for years apparently with "unbalanced" hoppers, if I buy this am I a shoe in for D1 ball?

Why can't they just say "look, we got together with virtue and produced a high level hopper at a competitive price"

Cool, I'm more interested if you say that

Looks underwhelming. I didnít hear about it being a kickstarter though. In that case, no thanks. I donít care for feigned exclusivity. If you have a new product and youíre ready to sell, show me why itís good. Otherwise, Iíll gladly ďmiss outĒ.

That's the one with built in Chrono right?

How is it anyway? I never head much about it after release, it seemed to die rather quickly

Yeah. Mine is +/-10 fps off my big Chrono so it's good enough to fool around with. Not as heavy as everyone said. It is pretty big though.

One button push the take the whole thing apart, so that's pretty cool. Very very easy to clean. I only have the rain lid and not a speed feed though.

I heard the gears will go bad eventually, and I'm not really trying to find out. But it looks cool on a shelf.
