Twister Feed Neck
by Bill Mills

Different hoppers with different sized necks has been havoc for players with vertical feed paintguns.  Unlike angled feeds which use an elbow that clamps onto the feeder, vertical feed paintguns have a cupped feed neck that holds the hopper. 

Invariably these necks are either too tight, requiring the hopper to be sanded down, or they are too loose, requiring tape, or other packing to hold the hopper in firm - or worse, letting it fall out on the field.  Finding the perfect matched fit has always been tough.  Ruff & Tuff Sports in Miami, FL is one of a number of companies who has an answer to the problem.  Their Twister feed necks look very much like any other vertical feed neck, but they've got a twist, literally. 

They are made from two pieces of aluminum which screw together.  Between them is a semicircle of plastic with beveled edges.  When the top of the neck is screwed in to the bottom, the c-ring is compressed, tightening around the loader's neck.  The result is a loader that is locked in TIGHT to the feedneck, but easily removed with just a twist of the locking ring.  The Twister feed necks are available for Angels, Autocockers, and the Impulse.
