Posts I've Made
17 January 2010 - 12:16 AMVaerak, some tidbits for you sir.
Your least invasive option that I can find is to purchase a stock class feed that slides into the existing feedneck. (Follow Link)
The next option involves a gunsmith/airsmith/machinest that can remove the pressed-on feedneck by tapping it out with a hammer, or by cutting at the base. Then your can drill and tap the body to attach a standard phantom or other feed. The problem I'm running into is the milling on the top of my body is uneven and there isn't a good place to attach a feed. A standard 01 is body that is flat on top might yield the best results. If you find any other ideas, let me know.
11 January 2010 - 07:27 PMI share your frustration, but have never seen any answers that didn't involve jimmy-rigged PVC pipe. Post a pic of the marker and it'll help you with an answer to your feed neck question. I fear most answers will involve cutting/dilling the body. I'd like to see a way to attach a CCI Phantom or similar feed tube. I'll be monitoring this thread if you get an answer.

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.
06 December 2009 - 05:24 AMI 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.
05 December 2009 - 03:18 AMA 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.
