Torque is definitely force feed. Not sure about Pinokios since they have that bend sensor in them... not sure if they have a timer that makes them spin the paddles every few seconds or anything. Hard to imagine that a non-force feed can be as fast as a Pinokio though, but I suppose it could be done if it's done well enough. It's just a lot easier to go that fast with force feed :dodgy:.

Empire Prophecy and Magna aren't on there, and they're both force feed. I don't think the Ricochets are force feed and I don't think Eggys are, either (mentioned earlier).

Ricochettes and eggs are like Reloader B and revvy. They use an aggitater.

I know, I used to own a Ricochet Apache, friend of mine has a Revvy and my younger brother has a Reloader II (pretty much same as a Revvy), and my cousin has an Evo3 :P. Never seen the inside of a Reloader B, just a Halo B, Reloader B2, Reloader II, and Magna, as far as Empire/Odyssey loaders are concerned.

Egg's are, they have a paddle system, not just agitators, as are the Pinokios, they just have a touch sensor in the "raceway" that tells the motor to spin when a ball rests on it.

Yea, I know...

Ah, I was told the Pinokios only spin when a ball passes the membrane pad/touch sensor thing. If the motor spins whenever there's pressure on the pad, not just when something goes over it and then passes, then yea it would be force fed :D.

EDIT: I just pulled out my cousin's Eggy3 and put a few balls in it to see if it's force fed... the motor sped up when the balls when past the paddles (which were constantly spinning) and presumably the eyes, but the motor stopped once the ball stack had filled the feedneck and gone up to the eyes. I don't see how that's force fed?
EDIT2: Actually I guess I can kinda see how an Eggy is force fed, if that motor speed increase is supposed to push the flexible paddles against the ball stack and put tension on them that way (paddles trying to straighten out but the ball stack is in the way)... if that's actually how it works then yes, Eggys are force fed. I didn't think they were :(.

I thought the eggys were force fed becuase the paddles pushed the balls though the feedtube. Since the feedtube curves downward and starts level with the paddles, they would force the balls down, instead of agitating them. But I have never actually looked at them insides, so I can't be sure.

<.< vl force and eye force have yet to be mentioned, definatly force fed because neither can operate while the hopper is off, however the balls can fall into the raceway but are incapable of being fed without the hopper on.

Hi, kind of new to all of this. I understand the mechanics of the Q-Loader, but I'm wary of any serious Receiver or other body modifications. I presume it hangs entirely off of the feeder elbow connections? I mean, I won't be making any new holes in my marker? Any pictures of the mounting area would be splendid.

Cheers.
