    ELBOW advice: Rotor on RT-Pro

    Hey guys, as you can guess from the title, I am mounting a Dye Rotor on a standard RT-Pro (right feed) body.

    1.) Anyone know of a good elbow for this? All the ones I have tried are cheap and they aren't very sturdy. I crank it down, but the hopper still moves or the elbow breaks.

    2.) Did anyone ever make an aluminum elbow? Cause that would be great.

    Please advise.

    techt made one but they cost 40-50 bucks, PTP made sturdy ones as well

    put a layer of electrical around the feed neck, then put your elbow on and tighten
    maybe the elbows you are using are too big
    i have only used my revvy on R/L feed bodies...that would be a bummer if the rotor fell off and broke!

    expensive, but will last for a long time depending on how you treat it.

    it says they are SP/impulse threads...they are similar threads to Angel threads but definitely different! kinda like standard to metric sizes...they look the same but are different

    The atomic elbows from Celanis paintball are pretty sturdy. They also have a lifetime warranty last I checked.

    Allen Paintball Products also sells the Atomic Elbow. Very heavy duty stuff, I have three on my mags. Put some auto hose clamps on them, which they also sell, and you can tighten the hell out of that thing so your loader won't go anywhere.

    PTP also still sells a similarly heavy duty elbow, it's black with screws. Would probably work well too.
