Hey guys,

I'm getting a mini here shortly, and I have realized that it is not cool like my A-5 and thus does not come with a built-in ingenious loading system, so....

I need suggestions on what loader I should buy

I'm definately not spending over $200 on it, $150 would be better.

So what's the best loader I can get for the price??

Pinokio, Rotor and Prophecy are all in the $150 range. I picked the Pinokio. It's the lightest, comes with the extended nose and takes Halo speed feeds. Nothing extra to buy unless you want a speed feed. The Rotor and Prophecy both have larger capacities that you can buy and same with the speed feeds, they are proprietary. So the extras for the Rotor and Prophecy make their prices sky rocket.

Here's my Pinokio in action.

I have an Empire B2 on my Mini. Or in a few days formerly my Mini. If you're willing to spend $150 the Rotor would be a very good choice. I think the Pinokio leans back too much on the marker. I don't really like the look, although they're very nice loaders.

EDIT: When the nose is on the Pinokio is makes it look like it's sitting more flat, or parallel to the marker.

It will feed 50bps, or might. Not consistantly. There is one video where a guy shoots a marker at 40bps with the Rotor on Youtube. The Rotor is an excellent choice, but an Empire B2 will feed up to 28-30bps and is cheaper, and IN MY OPINION looks cooler. I dislike the Rotor because of its size.

you can get the older Empire Reloaders or the Odysee ( odysse?) Halo's for less now. You can also look into a Vlocity which are also cheeper, but the Vlocity is also more updated compared to the Halo's or Reloaders so personally, on that note I'd say a Vlocity might do the trick.

That's funny because I picked mine brand new up for $60 too. Like, 50% off! I love mine. The other funny part is that I run it on my Mini.

EDIT: Ran it on my Mini till today :).

I have a Halo B, but I have used a Prophecy and Rotor. Yet to try out the Pinokio, but so far I have loved the Rotor. So if you know anyone who has any of the top loaders (Rotor, Prophecy, Pinokio) try them before you buy them, you might like one more than the other.

Qloader baby!!! yeah!!!

Seriously, it's the fastest feeding loader system, and it's all mechanical.

Check it out vs. the vaunted Halo victory board:

It takes a bit of getting used to, but I love mine.
