Looks amazing, the system it works from could prove to be flawless and hopefully I'm going to have one of BZ's first in!

Of course! I just hope noone gets one in before me seeing as they already on general sale in America Sad

The mechanism is amazing, uses as they call 'soft' spines so there can never be a jam, it will always release a stuck ball then immediately feed another. I think this is going to be a good one as it seems virtue have put a hell of a lot of effort and hard work into this, they cant afford for it not to be awsome!

someone putting reballs through it will prove the non feed part! looks very interesting but pricey. $185 dollars stateside or between £150 - £160 this side of the pond!!

im not a fan of the white so it looks non appealing if i see it in another colour this may change!

hmmm .... how can they guarantee no jams? There must be a chance of it happening even if it is just a minute chance for this.

It will never jam, the spines are soft so they will bend around the jam and adgitate the balls to free the jam, simple enough system. Maybe a slight off chance but its very slim.

And, answering earlier questions, I believe those were reballs it was shooting which are notorious for jamming hoppers, and not one jam with the spire, i really think they have hit it on the head this time!

Yes it was kai thousands of reballs and it just keeps shooting and from the trouble we had when we went I think although quite expensive it will be an amazing investment
