A speed feed is an optional upgrade for higher-end paintball loaders that allows a player to reload paintballs without the awkward delay or distraction of flipping a lid open, then closing it. Designed for tournament players who need to keep their paintball gun on target and reload as quickly as possible, a Speed Feed allows a player to simply grab a pod of paintballs and dump it directly into their loader, without flipping the hopper lid open first. Rubberized fingers on the speed feed bend inwards, allowing reloading, but won’t bend outwards, ensuring paintballs don’t spill during play. If playing serious competitive paintball is for you, or if you simply want to reload as quickly and easily as possible during play, a speed feed is a great upgrade. Just keep your hopper’s lid handy if the weather gets bad, so you can put it back on to prevent rain from getting into your hopper!
