The Viewloader Revolution
two 9v batteries

Through the end of the 1990s and at the turn of the century, the ViewLoader Revolution has been considered the leading product in agitating loaders for paintball.  The Revolution is an agitating loader (paddles rotate inside the loader to break up ball jams) with a 200 round capacity (180 is more realisic, filling the loader completely can jam the agitator).

Click Here to read about how the circuitry of the Revolution was redesigned in 2000.  The redesign was meant to combat false triggering by sunlight on Revolutions with transparent bodies.  As a side effect of this change was a slower response time between the detection of a gap in the ball stack and activation of the agitator.

As a performance enhancer some players have bent upward the arms of the Revolution's agitator to allow it to spin faster without the resistance of rubbing on the loader's sides.

Others have taken the impeller from an eVLution loader, heated it and bent the arms upward, using that as a replacement for the Revolution's paddles.  Some notable players using this modification in the 2001 season include Bob Long of Bob Long's Ironmen and Rocky Knuth of Naughty Dogs.

For a comparison of how the Revolution, with various modifications performs, compared to other loaders, see the WARPIG Ballistic Labs Loader Speed Comparison.
