Is the q-loader really worth the $$'s. If i got one how many pods should i buy? I am a woodsball player (not as much paint needed).
people with q-loaders please post pics:D

Is a new vehicle worth the money, I personally don't think so, but we buy them anyway. I've been considering one for a while now but gonna buy HPA bottles first. As far as pods, if you don't spray much in woodland no more than two pods should do you just fine.

We purchased some a couple of weeks ago. It is a nice system when you get it set up properly, and use fresh paint.(chops like a blender if not) Q loader is now offeing a four in one pod pack as a packed deal, this is what we have. The kicker is that the packs were made wrong (no tank pouch) so we got the packs for $15 insted of the normal $35. The pod packs are a must. We have the 500 round set, you could get by with 200 but the reload time between games could get a little old. If you are looking for a low pro loader that feeds very fast, and is not the normal, than it is worth the money.

Have you had any problems with them so far.(breaking, jamming, etc.)

At first I had a ball break when I loaded a new pod in the gun socket, and the pod would stop feeding every few balls. I adjusted the feed neck tube, Problem solved. (out of adjustment by 1/2 ball) Taking the pods apart for cleaning looks hard at first but it is fairly easy. If you are just looking at the pictures the pods look like a mechanical nightmare, but they are very simple. Looks like a large click ink pen. The parts are well thought out and quality made. I think the only part that would give you problems in the long run would be the spring coil. The spring is not under as much tension as you would think. I have added a couple of tension winds to mine with my finger tips. Just make sure there are balls in the feed neck tube before you put a pod in, there is a lot of force built in that short distance. I had the bright idea to test the force, I placed my thumb over the free end of the tube and pop in a pod. There was more force than my unsuspecting thumb was ready for, and in less than two seconds I had 100 balls all over the living room. I am very happy with the system, but there is some getting used to it period.

when you attach the q-loader to the gun does it fit on the plastic elbow or the piece attached to the gun?

Thats just the part the plastic elbow connects to. You don't need a plastic elbow to fit over it... just the one that comes with the Q-loader kit and a little electrical tape to make sure it grips better.
