Dye Primo Loader

The Primo loader is quite a step up from the gravity fed hopper. Dye looked at the gravity fed hopper and asked how do we make this better, and their answer was the Primo Loader. This special loader is capable of holding up to 200 paintballs, is sleek and narrow and incredibly lightweight.  The secret of this loader is the spacer inside of it. What the spacer helps to do is get all the paintballs inside to flow in the same direction as it feeds. This means for the player that no longer do you have balls pushing against each other jamming up or slowing down the balls falling into the gun. This hopper does not require any batteries and is able to feed significantly faster than other gravity fed loaders.


Dye LTR Loader

This budget friendly loader delivers the fastest feed rate in paintball. The LTR comes in a variety of colors including black, blue, red, green, and Dye Cam their camo pattern. The LTR is the predecessor of the famous Dye Rotor hopper. This force feed loader is capable of feeding 30 plus balls a second. The loader is completely tool-less only needing your fingers to take the whole thing apart. The LTR is easy to clean too, the hopper splits apart in the middle, dividing the top shell from the bottom shell along with a feed tray in between the two shells. Removal of the feed tray with its integrated spring ramp is easy and once removed exposes the internals of the hopper allowing you easy access to the batteries and paddles of the hopper for cleaning. This durable hopper will perform for you in all conditions and types of paintball play.
