The only reason I might disagree with the argument that we don't need faster loaders is if it could be proven that the slower ones are just as consistent. If a loader, or board, for that matter, can run at up to 50 bps, you have to assume that it would be very consistent, and that you should see very few hopper related breaks, whereas a loader that does 15 bps may skip feed, or allow popcorning, etc. I'm not saying that's the case, just that it could be. The same with boards. If the board can do xx bps, when I set it on my piddly little 11 or 12 bps it should work great.

I understand the idea of higher speed equaling better lower speeds, but I honestly don't agree with it. Software being what it is, it should be consistent no matter what the speed is. However, this isn't a perfect world, and most machines made to operate at higher speeds don't perform so well at lower speeds. Ya just gotta blow the dust out of them from time to time to keep them going. I never had a problem with my Reloader B feeding consistantly, quickly as I needed it, and constantly.

Halos and Reloader B's, back when they came out, were made to feed somewhere around 22-25 bps which is still much higher than anyone ever shot in semi (I still hold to the notion that due to the physical limits of human physiology, no one can shoot higher than 16-18 bps, and that's really pushing it, without some kind of "assistance" as in bounce, soft ramping, etc. I don't care how many videos anyone can show me of people with fast fingers. I still believe there was some assistance because they aren't shooting truly "mechanical" markers. We humans just aren't made that way!)

Also, those leagues with some sort of ramping allowed never went above 15 bps, so the hype in getting the latest, greatest high speed loaders was just that, IMO. Hype. A way to get more money into something that was new, exciting, a lot of the times uglier and most times unnecessary, IMO, though people of course could spend money on whatever they felt they wanted.

However, I will give these new loaders two advantages - those being weight/weight distribution and better shells.

Edit: I'd also play in an all pump league!

yes thats not what im saying...im saying i dont want to only see a bunch of runnin around bunkering either...which brings up newer players that they are hoping to bring in being afraid of being bunkered instead of the higher rates of fire

most high ends now days have good enough boards for the job so aftermarket board companys basically become pointless imo. they can't be happy about this.

See how far you get in the business world with your logic (I promise, it won't take very long at all for you to find out).
i know this...im saying i wont be happy about anything under 12bps,not that i wouldnt do the same thing the psp did...i'll play regardless

i was more afraid of getting hit by 100 paintballs than getting bunkered.
