Default My Ghetto Lightning feed Review

Okay as promised here it is....
http://www.spyder.tv/forums/showthread.php?t=5220 < SOC Sales Thread
PBN Sales thread

I received my Lightning feed from HobbyHorse in only a couple of days through the USPS (as always serious props to my man HobbyHorse). Now to get on with the review, at first glance I was honestly skeptic it looked a little weak and a little too flexible. However what is a review if I don't try it out? I threw it on Dres/Dexs old Halo to a perfect fit it was tight around the neck which gave me some confidence that it would not fall off in play. I grabbed a pod off my desk and flipped the lid to the pod and pressed it against the edge of the lightning feed and loaded a full pod with no problems.

Now the actual test...

I have loaded a pod into my lightning feed and now I must test it out. What better way to do it but play? I threw it on my newest marker and went to play some 1v1 with my oldest. Sure enough into the first game I had to reload, doing so extremely easily in less time than average due to the step that is skipped in this process. I played a little more aggressive than a back player normally would trying to put this thing through its paces. I played all day without spilling a single ball. Overall I give this product 4 out of 5 stars. The only reason it does not get the full 5 stars is because when playing in dirt/sand (which I did not) it will allow an excess of dust into you loader. But for the 10 bucks that it is going to run you, it will not disappoint. Hobby if you get them for the VLocity LMK...





Sorry for the crappy pics im posting from the shop and I dont have my good cam here.

Feel free to ask any questions I will try to answer them.

Nice review Matt. My cousin has one as well, and often times I have to keep a pod shoved in overnight to keep it flexed in a bit so all the balls go in, if not, 5 or so balls get stuck out. He doesn't use it anymore becuase we play in dirt and mud, and lids aren't that much more difficult.

This one is a lower sitting version that HobbyHorse makes leed. I like it better than the one you can buy in stores. It is a bit different if I would have thought I would have grabbed one of my teamates regular speedfeed and taken side by side comparison pics. This one also flexes much better than the original.

I did not attempt to avoid the filter by spacing letters or respelling a word. *****= female dog is not a swear. Go back to PBN phil... oh my bad .
