This is a longshot, but I'll never know if I don't ask. The ratchet in my cyclone feeder (which is who knows how old) has worn teeth that cause the ratcheting action to slip and the paddles to not advance a full rotation. This of course prevents the balls from feeding, which probably explains why kept missing people from 15 feet away at DFWAP last month (I didn't miss - I didn't even shoot!)

So, I'm going to replace the worn, plastic ratchet with the TechT Vortex Mod SS, a stainless steel upgrade that must surely remedy the problem. However, the TechT website has the Vortex on back order, and I want to solve this issue before Saturday. I'm going to call Pro Edge and probably the TXR pro shop today, but I'm covering all bases to see if any COBRA have one laying around that I could buy.

I have a stock ratchet. I can bring it Friday. It's the black shaft with the teeth. Then the white ratchet. It's old, I think I replaced with the TechT a couple years ago.

I'd only need the black shaft and not the rachet itself. I'll let you know ASAP if I find another replacement.
 
Thanks again.

I tried to word it another way. I really did. I knew someone was going to pick the low-hanging fruit.
 
Let's see who can be the first to make a joke about cocking the marker and pressure release.

Grinder - I called Pro Edge and they're going to save a Vortex for me. Thanks for the offer - I figure I'll replace it with something that will outlast me.

Ironsights - If you show me your low-hanging fruit, banana or grapes, I'm going to use them for target practice.
