Question Q-Loader or Warp Feed?

Im looking to get a different loader for my custom 98. I dont like having the hopper right in the way, thats the point, so dont post saying tippmanns dont need that kind of force feeding. Anyway which would you recomend? Im kind of leaning more twords the Q-Loader because it uses pods instead of the standard hopper(warp feed).

Id say qloader out of the two, just because its a bit less bulky and awkward.

But id seriously recomend that you get a standard hopper...

I meant standard configuration. Yeah if you got a Halo, thatd be best, you can take it to all other guns (not saying you cant with a qloader) .

Thats just my opinion though, if you really like the Q then go for it.

Q-loader and warp-feeds are both wastes of time. The are hard to install and not that worth it.

Don't buy a Halo B if you are shooting a stock Tippmann.

I've had no problems with my Halo, works perfect.

And theres no problem shooting a stock tippy with a Halo, anybody thats smart that sees you with it will know that your buying as an investment for later guns.

id say get a halo b, if you see anyone without one (or a reloader b, almost the same thing) making fun of you for having it on a tippmann, you can make fun of them for having a slow hopper on a fast gun

nonsense.

I have not used a warp feed, so I cannot say much about that, but I have talked to many ex-warpfeed users and they tell me it's heavy because you should have an electro hopper w/ the warpfeed, so they have the batteries that the warp uses + the electro hopper + the weight of the thing

the qloader on my 98c w/o paint barely adds any weight at all, and a MORON could install it. I decided to use the cms to mount mine, it takes LESS THAN 2 MINTUES to mount it, I had the whole thing figured out and running perfectly in LESS THAN 30 MINUTES..so I'm sorry, but I find it hard to believe that you have actually installed and used one.

the qloader isn't for everyone...I am getting a reloader b because I plan to play tourney ball in the future and I am told by everybody who gives me tips that you just shoot waaay more paint in tourneys than you do in recball speedball,so I'm going to need more capacity. I've gone games shooting less than 100 paintballs, actually I've gone many games w/ shooting 75 paintballs...so it's perfect for me now, I will still keep it when I get the reloader b too.

Everybody thinks it's so expensive, I got 3 pods, the harness, and everything else that comes w/ the system for only $100 shipped, because I bought it off of someone who decided it wasn't for them. Saved myself a good $50-60.

Another thing I love about it is the fact that if you breeze through all your pods in a heated recball game or one of those games where you "shoot it like it's free", (or when it actually is), the pods don't rattle very loud, especially since they're kind of "double encased", there's 2 shells to it, the outer shell and the inner shell that is against the paintballs, so it sounds like a muffled rattle. so when you're low on balls, there's no rattling around of your paintballs

and it loads exactly the same whether or not you have 10 or 100 paintballs in it

go to www.qloader.com and watch the videos of people shooting w/ it, at 33bps, also maybe on this board, and even more likely on pbnation, you can find vids of people w/ their markers w/ all the different mounting configurations, and how it feeds flawlessly. When I get my reloader I will bring a plastic bag or something for when in the middle of a game it begins to rain....w/ the qloader you don't have to worry about rain unless you're a genius and decide to tilt your marker sky high, letting water get into the reloading socket and into the feed tube.

They've also got a lifetime warranty, and there are many happy qloader users on pbnation on the "qloader tech thread"...the system takes patience and know-how....it's not very very hard, but you have to know how it works to use it. you take care of it, and it takes care of you. Don't try like many of the new users to set up the system the night before a big game or tourney. If at all possible, you should set it up, and go somewhere where you can test it out and let it rip, and see how you have to configure it to work for your marker's setup.

A forcefed hopper is your best bet for a 98c or any other blowback markers for that matter. Even w/ a lapco direct feed and an elbow, the blowback of my 98c is still strong enough to make my revvy pinch balls..I haven't considered working on a lower operating pressure when using the revy, it hurt my efficency a little, was using the qloader...but w/ all day air I may just do that and see how much the blowback is reduced, because I have to crank down my rof on the r/t since I'm pinching balls, the combination of 12+bps + revy = pinched balls, I have to crank it down to 11

so don't listen to people who say it's overkill to have a forcefed hopper on a 98c, alot of people thought it was overkill until I was shooting 11bps by fanning my modded 98c trigger, then I put on the response trigger and was shooting 16bps and it just made sense. not to mention there's tuning and mods that can be done to the r/ tto make it shoot 17-18, even more. You're making an investment, it can be moved to a different marker.


Oh yea and here's that qloader tech thread I was talking about Q-Loader Tech Thread

They aren't worth it considering he will be upgrading... It's called... "Read between the lines."

that makes absolutely no sense.

you *do* know that the qloader can be transferred to another gun *within minutes*, don't you? what are you talking about since he's upgrading it's not worth it?

when you have another gun, depending on how you mount it, all you have to do is change tubes if you need one of a different length and you're good to go...something which takes all but 5 minutes....

I'm sorry but if your post is in reply to mine then it makes absolutely no sense....if it isn't then nevermind.
