Well last week i got to try out a friends Q loader.

Well after taking 10 min to set up we set off to the shooting box to test it out. CHOP CHOP CHOP CHOP CHOP. We determined that the hose was at a bad angle so we go back, stick a full size hose on the mother. Go back to the shooting box. CHOP CHOP CHOP CHOP CHOP. I dont think it was double feeding since i have cocker detents (who knows it could be). But it was most likely the hose being at a weird ass angle.

Needless to saw we gave up and i went back to my egg.

Pros: Gets your hopper off the top of your gun, "clips", cool factor, w/ the resoivoir thing, pod loading is easy, no batteries.

Cons:

Pods are HUGE. They will NOT fit in conventional packs. My friend had to cut up his JT slam pack to fit them. The pods are HUGE HUGE HUGE. Mount it parallel w/ your barrel and its as long as the thing, mount it downwards and it will be longer than your gun.
The set up time is longer than w/ a on top hopper.
When you finish off a pod you CANNOT feed the remaining balls in the tube!!! So if your on your last pod and only have balls in the tube left YOU ARE SCREWED.
Feeds so hard that double feeding is EASY.
Pods are EXPENSIVE.


Do yourself a favor and stick w/ your hopper.

My Qloader review (reposted from another site)

I did get the Qloader and tried it out on some kids at wildfire last evening. (felt like a sales rep) . I got it because I needed a force feed hopper, and its about the same price as a Halo. And feeds my gadget fetish.

The good:
fast, low profile, fast, easy to use, once loaded that is, fast, fits normal harnesses, fast, no batteries, fast, quiet and no jostling/rattling/breaking on the unused pods. Did I say fast? Pretty much what it cracks up to be. Also, it's about 1lb lighter fully loaded than a Revvy 12v fully loaded.


The bad:
0.5) Only comes in "smoke"
1) Pre-loading is a small pain - uses a crank device that is fed from a giant pod. It has to be jostled about 10 times per pod loading, or you will get gaps in the clip. Should be simple to rig something up with the tired old obsolete revvy, to agitate the feeding.
2) Only 100 balls per pod. If you're a sniper or a conservative shot-chooser, thats fine. If your the back man for the NPPL all-stars, probably not a good thing. So you walk on the field with 500 balls instead of the customary 750 (4 pod harness+hopper).
3) Did not fit my generic harness (slightly thicker than normal pods) but fit my flurry harness just fine, and should with any harness that has a little flex to it. My flurry harness has rigid hold-open pod slots, not very stretchy, so i guess the generic one was just a smidgen tighter.

conclusion:
Dont use it strictly for it's speed or you will run out of paint in no time - (speed is there when you need it though). Use it for it's low profile, and modular ease of reloading.
That said, I will pass final judgement on the ball-volume-for-cool-features trade-off, after a big(ger) game...

Additional info:

Length: 11 3/4"
Diameter: 2 11/16"

As for concerns over spring pressure squeezing the balls: As far as I can tell the center of the tube appears to be an Archimedian Screw, which is what is wound by the inner spring. As it turns it feeds the balls forward. In the endcap is a 6-ball pinwheel similar to the A-5 feeder, that pushes the balls thru the opening as they are fed up. There is a plastic "last ball" that is too large to fit into the pinwheel, so that the screw stops spinning/pushing once the balls are emptied.
