The E-Tron 130rd Spin Loader c. 2000

I’ve seen photos of the bizarre E-Tron Spin Loader for the last decade but I haven’t been able to find one for sale until last week. This loader was offered by Avalon Manufacturing who made the Diamond GT Blowback Spyder clones.

The archived paintball review description states:
“The E-tron is a revolutionary new hopper that is the new alternative to tubes and e-hoppers. It will feed approximately 10 bps. They make spills very rare if ever because you don’t have to use tubes to dump into the hopper simply pull out the next E-tron from the harness and put it on your gun and flip the dump switch. These hoppers use treaded elbows so you don’t have to worry about the hopper falling off the gun.”

The E-Tron 130rd Spin Loader arrived yesterday and my initial thoughts are that it’s incredibly awkward, too tall, the paddle is not a desireable feature, and the clear plastic will be come brittle over time. Also, the actual shape is modeled after a grenade, possible in motion? The round shape is way too bulbous and reminds me of the AGS oil can loaders.

I don’t think this loader would stand up to many direct hits without cracking and breaking.  The lever to stop balls from feed seems like it could be problematic. I had always thought the leaver was for an electric control. I wonder if there ever was a motorized version? Maybe the hole where the paddle sits was originally for a motor and they did away with that and just threw the paddle in to cover it up. This is likely from c. 2003. The PBReview ratings are from 2004-2006.
