I picked one up yesterday.. My employee discount got me one for 75 Bucks flat.. NIB too.. I got the only Smoke one left.. It is SOOO Fast.. I put the ION on PSP ramping and I uped the Capp to 20 BPS.. The Vlocity was on setting 7 of 8.. It fed FLAWLESSLY.. No skips or anything.. I tryed that with my Halo it was skipping and stopping/jamming like there was no tomorrow.. As for it being "loud" when it is sitting still and on, it has a slight moan, but I could barely here it when I was shooting/playing.. Another thing I noticed about this Loader is how leight weight it is! Diffenately lighter than a Halo, and I wouldn't be surprised if it is lighter than the Egg.. I would recommend one over ANY OTHER LOADER.. The Reloader B is about the only thing that comes close to the speed, but the Vlocity has still got the weight category covered.. Well, there was my short review.. Here are the pics of it on my ION..

Yeah, I was knida bummed about the Rip drive thing too.. Oh Well. I think I might take it apart and look and see if I could add a Rip Drive knob and make it work..

What kind of pics of the battery door do you want?? It slides in and out like a Revvy.. But, you have to take out the screw closest to the door for it to slide back and forth..

Here is how the battery door works:

Loosen the screw closest to the door.. It doesn't come all the way out, but it goes out as far as it is in the pic:

Then, slide the door forward all the way out the front:

Here is a picture of how the batterys sit in the loader.. It comes with the foam that you see in the picture.. Doesn't rattle around at all with the foam in it..

I used my VLocity today for the first time and was very impressed. My marker was as light as an A1 with a Reloader, both running 45/45s. I had it on setting 6, to be a little more gentle and it still ripped.

Yeah vlocitys are awsome, but they do drain batterys. I just picked one up at NPPL. It work Flawlessley.

VL FTW, as it has already been said, Lol.. I plan to only use it on settings 4-5 during play, but I was shooting 20 BPS with the ramping and I didn't want it to skip.. So, I put it on 7 or 8..

I also plan to pick up a pair of rechargable batterys for it, So I can use as much as I want and not have to buy batterys again..

Thanks for the comments guys! I also ordered some Hybrid 06 Grips yesterday and I should have them next week and I will get pics of them on the ION when they get here..

Looking Good Shadow.

I am liking my VLocity too. I am about to go shoot some more video to show the difference between the VLocity and the Halo.

Did yours come with the wide mouth body?

Mine did not but they had some at the store so I exchanged it. Let someone else do the mod for you right :)

Mine didn't come with any special big mouth.. I think I am going to take a dremel to it though.. Lol.. I will play with it once though, and see if I like it how it is stock..

And Pman, I was going to get an Ego, but decided to keep the ION..

I played with mine today and thought about how people complained about the top being too small for loading. I spilled just as much paint as I do with a Reloader/Halo. I even thought about that the first time I filled. I was like "that wasn't nearly as bad as people said". For now I don't see a need to get a big mouth shell.
