Boosted SPO VLocity
by Bill Mills - Photos by Dawn Mills

To test its performance on gun, the Boost SPO VLocity was put through standardized WARPIG Ballistic Labs 10-shot burst testing. Mounted on a Matrix LCD receiver, the loader was cycled through 10 round bursts at specific computer controlled rates of fire. The paintballs were discharged into a ball catcher, where they could be counted to verify how many shots out of the 10 shot burst were fed properly. It should be noted that this test does not determine the maximum rate of fire a loader is capable of reaching – but rather how many shots out of 10 the loader will feed at a specific rate, when starting from “standing still.” At each rate of fire, the loader was tested three times. If all 10 shots were fed properly on at least two of the three trials, it was tested again at the next highest speed. Each test trial started with 100 DraXxus Hellfire paintballs in the loader.

The loader was tested when set with all of its settings at their lowest, all at their highest, and in the breakout mode. For breakout testing the no-delay setting was chosen, and the loader was turned on approximately 5 seconds before each 10-shot burst was fired, so that the breakout mode was in effect during the shot string.
