Valken VMAX and Reballs

I have yet to get my Valken VMAX hopper to feed reballs well. The rotor in the hopper is just too soft (works fine with paintballs upwards of 15bps, just not reballs). Trying to come up with solutions since there are no aftermarket stiffer rotors available on the market.

Yup. I'm not even OVERLY impressed with the Vmax with all the latest parts with regular paintballs to be honest. It works now, and can keep up with over 10 bps, but still not impressive given it's price. Best loader on the cheap for reball is the Spyder Fasta 18V, with the Pinokio if you've got a few extra $$ to spend.

Try a Pinokio or Spyder Fasta paddle

Thanks for the input guys.

This hex drive? The problem I had with the VForce is it isn't hex drive like the VMAX...it is some sort of bushing/slot drive.

Do they sell JUST the paddle? That's the big problem with the Vmax. The motor is, I believe, the same as the Fasta, but the paddles are so weenily soft they simply don't push ANYTHING fast enough to really justify the price of this hopper.

I cannot find where to buy just the paddle, but if you call or email Kingman, I'm sure they will sell you that one part
