      Can I ask you why you think the V-max sucks?

        I wouldn’t say that it sucks, that’s a little harsh, but for a loader built off of 10+year technology with a new coat of paint, it definitely isn’t worth the $79.95 price, IMO. It definitely wasn’t worth the +$100 price tag when it was first released. This loader is built off of the old Ricochet design, I think Ricochet saw there was easier and better money in licensing their designs then actually building one themselves, because that old tired design has seen many reincarnations over the years: Spyder Fasta, Tippmann SSL200, Pinokio, and I think there might be one or two others that I have forgetten about. The V-max introduced the “wheel sensor” instead of the “bend sensor”, which if I remember right it had all sorts of probs when first released. Personally at the $80 price point I’d go with the Halo Too and save a few bucks. Now if the V-max was priced below $50 then it would be a great hopper for the money, but not at $80. Buy a Tippmann SSL200 and get the same loader with a tried and true design (“bend sensor”) and save yourself $30.

        Yah, definitely. ;) Gino was a gracious host on short notice to grant an interview. Given that I got absorbed in our conversation and screwed up the focus a bit, and he still let me post it, well says alot about the guy. Thanks Gino. :)
