View Full Version : VLocity testing on my Ion....

This a very quick video I did testing the VLocity on my Ion.

The Ion is on uncapped full auto and the loader is on select force setting 8.

The pauses are from the Reballs, at least that is what I think.

I also included the sounds of the loader, since that is something people have been complaining about.

Ha, thanks man. That was not even a real BAMF-HacKeR production. Just something I threw together this morning.

I still have one on the drawing board though.

So have you decided what you like better? Did you ever fix your halo problem?

The issue was with the V35 board. I replaced it and it was much faster, but not ripping fast :) I still think there may be something else. I am going to see about getting a new motor, maybe that is it.

Not sure if I like the VLocity yet. Still need more time testing/playing with it.

I will better be able to tell once I use real paint and not Reballs.

Nice vid Dan :D, hoping to see the next BAMF-HacKeR Production soon, so i'll be waiting.

We'll be waiting on your decision on the loader, so tell us when your ready ;)

Nice vid.

A bamf-hacker production seems intrigueing, though I havn't seen any previous ones...

New Vid was for testing not for show...

The next real one will have tunes.

no side by side comparasson?


Couldn't the sound woke my daughter up, so I had to cut it short. Glad I got what I did.

100 ball freefall?


This I can do for you... Look for it tomorrow.

i told you on aim but i need to justify it here as well:

a side by side (start by releasing the ball at the same time):

10 balls (in the cone or on the cone/ in the que and ready to be unloaded) freefall to test burst ability

and

100 balls (just loaded best you can, but try to put them in an ideal posisiton in the cone and que/stack)

the vid just needs to be footage of the freefalls side by side so we can get a feel for speed comparitively to both...


sorry for all of the neccessities, but you became the guinea pig when you bought the thing, now we expect answers :D

Done working on the Video now.

I will add it to the last video and re-release it.

LOL So many Bamf Productions lol..... Dans Vids FTW

Reloader B2s feed reballs best IMO.... We have people that work at our reball place who have problems with thier Vlocities and reballs when the Empires work fine (both will jam from time to time but the Reloaders dont jam as often).... B2s were made tested with reballs and normals paintballs to make it a all around loada...

Awesome vid man...

OK to make my fans happy :) I have re-done the video. I added the needed music, and a drop test clip.

I did not do the 10 ball test, well I did but did not include it. The speed was too fast on either loader to make a difference. So in its place I did a 100 ball test and a full pod test.


For those that also like to tinker with Video here is a pic of the project plan.

Nice, you can see the difference between the two very easily. I'm glad I ordered one.

im impressed, i know you cant do this but id still like to see a side by side of a few varients of the halo as well (b2 and cheetah) with the aftermarket cones, shafts and gears before i invest in viewloader again.

Thanks... Not likely that I will be getting a B2 Reloader and a Cheatah Board, but If I do I will be sure to post a new video :)

I might get the V3 Cheetah board when it comes out for my Halo, if I do I'll do a video on that.

Slight edit to the Video. I changed the song to one that was not used before in a BAMF-HacKeR Production.

I also have it on Darkside for those that can't view video on Putfile.

i think you should just get rid of the gun sound all together and put some bad song in there as loud as possible, thats what every1 else does so it must be right... :dodgy:

You've put a couple of those vids on Darkside. I remember the style of the vid. And I've seen that drop test on Darkside too. Nice vids man!

OK since I can not leave well enough alone :) I have re-done the video one more time. I have now included a side-by-side on the gun test.

Here are the new links. I have it on both Putfile and Darkside

Yay, more SOAD.

I am very happy with my VLocity, and I'm suprised it was actually faster than the V35 Halo. Its a great hopper, people need to look past the exterior and look at the performance.

QTF, the more and more I get into paintball the more and more I realized that it doesn't matter what it looks like, its how it performs. Hmmmmm.... what else in life should be like that :thinking:

your halo is slow because it is never tilted upwards in the position it was designed to used at. in the shooting vid paint isnt rolling backwards properly because you are shooting downwards and in the side by side you have it verticle which isnt its optimal speed. the halo was designed to tilt balls so that when you are actually playing you can get speeds. try unloading a halo with a slight tilt upward on the nose, it unloads faster. also the vic board isnt the best of the halo design, since the eyes shut off the motor the board only keeps part of the feed in a pressure, unlike the reloader which keeps much more in a stack pressurized. the vids are great but i think a few factors here and there might have lead to the massive win by the vlocity. also could you check out the area where the rip could be on the VLocity and let us know what is there, some pics on actionvillage show this clear plastic thing protruding.

Halo was on the gun in reverse to make sure it was feeding the way it was supposed too. ;)

as for the rip location on the VLocity. There is a hole under the drive cone that has a small pin exposed. I am thinking any day now VL will release a rip drive knob to use on the loader, why else would that be there. I will get you some pics tonight.

try to see if there is something in there spinning. good thinking on the backwards halo, but the vert test still wasnt at optimum area, also i wanted to see how long 10 balls took because my halo can deliver a full stack in less than a second just with the rip (close to 18) but when its on and i dont crank the rip it can take more like 2 seconds which is a big difference. since the vl doesnt have rip you cant pre crank it right before you know you will have a big burst.
