The good thing about this loader is that it's a cheap solution. If you don't have much money, it's a good bargain.
The thing I don't like about this loader is that it skips A LOT. It's not very consistent. I took a short video of me unloading a hopper on my SLG to give everyone an idea of how well this thing feeds:

It may just be the sound activation, or the fact that it wasn't designed to feed that fast, but it just doesn't perform up to my expectations. It does a little bit better when you turn the cap down to around 12 BPS and only shoot in short bursts. It also helps if you are moving the hopper around instead of holding it still. Over all, I think I would have rather saved up a little bit more money and gotten something nicer. But, oh well. I guess you just live and learn.
All expectations aside, this loader DOES work well. It just doesn't feed as fast or as consistent as I would like. I would say 10-12BPS is about the max for this loader if you want to expect any kind of consistency. It will work really well for events that have hopper restrictions such as the SPPL, but in the long term I think I will invest in something nicer, that will be more consistent(even if I will never be able to legally use it to it's full potential at any field). I think more than anything the more expensive hoppers are worth it just for the consistent feed rate.

that's just how the industry works
Yea, I just had high hopes I guess
But, yea, the advertised feed rate is definitely peak feed rate.

i think what it might be is i can adjust the sensitivity and duration of the motor...IDK if the non-LCDs can do that...
