Eh, last post got deleted, but here's my duct tape speedfeed pictures. My team captain came up with the quick fix after my hopper lid got shot off during a tourney.

It works surprisingly well, so I haven't bothered to replace the lid.

That's pretty legit. I think I might make one that looks a little nicer for my halo and see how that works.

Make sure to tape the underside that isn't sticking to anything, that way its sturdier.

A small piece of foam in the bottom of the lock lid pod will take up some space and prevent hopper over fill. Then you have the smaller capacity of other pods with the lock lid security. If the pods were smaller, they would be the perfect match for the Rotor.

Also, I've had issues with the Virtue Crown falling off in rough play, or being shot off by grazing shots on the top of the hopper. Other than the profile and the clamp used to fasten it to the lid, it's a good product. I use the Exalt feed now and am very pleased thus far with the lower profile and the lighter gate tension. I lose some balls during play, but it hasn't completely fallen off on me.

Do you think you lose more balls now with the exalted? Or did the virtue lose some too?

I lose a ball here and there with the exalt feed, usually during a hard slide or other impact. The Virtue Crown did very well, with no loss of paint under normal play. I never could get the clamp on the crown to hold quite tight enough to the lid rim. The paint pushing on the bottom of the crown was enough force to pop it off. Then it spilled out as if the lid was open, but the lid was several feet away so it couldn't just be closed back. I'm happier with the exalt feed now. The $17 price tag was nicer also.

The original Rotor speedfeeds are fragile and wear out quickly, and tend to be very expensive as well. That's why people prefer alternatives.

Flyweightnate, I'm not familiar with the product that you linked to. Do you know what kind of durability it has. If it isn't as good as some of the others, it might even be worth the money because you could buy several of them for the price of one factory Dye feedgate. That was one reason I went with the exalt, I could buy two of them for the price of one factory gate or virtue. Even if it wore out a little sooner, it could still be worth the money.

He showed us one that had been used for 100 cases. Yes, 100 cases. It still looked darn near perfect. The best part is, they sell the foam centers as replacements, so you can basically use it forever. I'd say the only more durable setup out there is the Virtue Crown, and we all know what they're charging for those- and they have quite a high profile by comparison, too.
