bigblue202 showed me the video of the new Proto Primo Loader earlier.

I'm curious if this thing is gonna be a good buy...
8+ bps with no batteries sounds like it could probably keep up with my SP-1. I'd love to save some money and quit buying 9 volts.
I'm anxious to see it released. :heart:

Anyone know anything else about them?

The concept is sound. We built a 2000 round loader for a special project with the University of Hawaii. We used the same idea x10 in order to keep the paint from crushing itself and it worked great.

As gravity feed loaders go, this one should certainly be worth the $15 price tag.

pretty sure my SP-1 does 11 bps. It's got the stock trigger board.

$15 huh? That's not bad at all.

Will you be playing in any tournaments? Or just rec and for fun? The Primo will be fine for rec days, but if you want to get serious you will need an electric one.

Oh haven't been to any tournaments since last summer. I just play on the weekends with the team. But I already have an Invert Halo Too that I just bought a month ago. The only reason that I would buy this would be to just save on battery money... And have another hopper for when I get my MR2 fixed.

I say why not. For 15 bucks it could be a reliable back up loader. I think I am going to pick one up for when people want to use my 98C or if something happens to my Rotor.

I just bought one to replace my standard hopper, for $15 I think it will be a great upgrade. I'll let you know more when I get it from ANS

As gravity hoppers go it seem pretty good, but since you are using an SP-1 I'd go with an electronic loader. Now you don't need to buy $150 Rotor or Prophecy. I have an SP-1, love it, been using an old Revy loader. Technically speaking it's not a "force feed loader" but an agitator loader. At full auto on my SP-1 (11bps cap) it keeps up pretty well. Yes, the 9volts are annoying but it's part of the paintball life. I guess at $15 you could give it a shot.

Saw a guy use one this weekend after he gave up on his halo. He easily managed to get 8 or 9 out of it. As far as gravity goes it's about as good as you're gonna get.
Damn it feels good to be a gangster.

It's exactly like the tacamo loader. But that doesn't make it any less awesome.
