Hey Guys.

I saw a picture of T-Freak using a Rotor with the Virtue Crown. I will probably be getting a rotor, but I am not sure of what I want to do with the lid options. First I thought Virtue, but then noticed how ugly I thought they were. Then I looked at just the speed feed, but it got horrible reiviews. Now I am looking at the "Exalt SpeedFeed (or something like that", but I don't really think it looks that good.

Also, I will be using Lock Lids, with 160 balls packed into them. If I get something liek the speed feed, don't I lose some paint capacity?

And one more thing, if I did go with the virtue crown, which one should I get The ultra soft, or harder one? I play a lot of snake....

What do some of you guys think?

Thanks ;)

Yeah i use virtue crown, and personally its 30 times better than the dye speed feed ( the fins break off if they get hit, and first game i used one i had 4 finss break off ;) ).

But it is kind of high profile, so i want the Exalt feed Gate, but i do recommend the virtue one, high quality and works wonderfully (and yes they are slightly ugly..)

Thanks T-Freak. Why do you want the exalt?

Also, since you use the locklids, do you spill more balls when you reload because there are nearly as many balls in that pod as there regularly are in the hopper?

Thanks.

well i tend to reload before im empty, its a bad habit and i always spill some paint.

I want the exalt because it goes into the rotor i think instead of sticking an inch above it.

A loclid will always spill paint...they are the WORST PODS EVER DESIGNED...the top doesnt pop off but if you drop it then your gunna have broken paint anyway and they strech out packs in odd ways.

The virtue is best hands down it catches the most paint and holds the most, exalt is second, and dont waste money on speedfeed its a piece of poo I ended up ripping off the fins in the middle of a game and played the rest of a tourney with just an open top.

Virtue is the best, go for performance not looks, a speed feed is supposed to be a performance enhancer so your looking for performance, nobody will notice its ugly if you just gog em in the face.

Peace,

T freak I wasnt saying they dont pop off I was saying they are made so they dont pop off in a podpack when you slide/run but as long as you dont overfill a normal pod and snap it shut all the way youll be fine.

Snipa, yea they fit in some and others they dont...they are not good pods though if your going to be using a hopper like a rotor...they slow down load times and waste paint...if you are shooting out all or most of your paint before you pod up your risking missing out on a G or getting lit up or moved up on.

It may have just been because it was old, but I found a locklid and used it for a few games and the thing popped open more than my normal pods.

Exalt makes the best speed feed I've used. I have one on my Pinokio.
I used the original, plastic finger speed feeds...those are bad. Then I got a virtue crown. It's good, but after a while the fins lose their strength and they hang down.
Exalt's hasn't done that, and I've had it a little under a year.
My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.
