Some of you may be familiar with the name HK Army (this stands for Hostile Kids Army), some of you may not be. I don’t know whether or not people consider them a good brand or not but, I do know that there are groups of people who really do not like the brand. I am here to let the masses know that they should give HK Army a chance. I can give you my experiences meeting the people that work for them and my experience selling/using their products. Then, if you haven’t heard of them or if you don’t like them, you may want to change your mind.
First let’s go over the items that they actually sell. When I first encountered the company a few years ago, we really only sold their clothes and protective gear. They were a brand name that could be “cool” and represent paintball so, I thought they were pretty cool at the time. Lately they have been coming out with some other paintball gear. They are trying and (to a degree) succeeding to expand their brand to other items that include protective gear, masks, and loaders. The items that they are releasing are actually of high quality and should not just be thought of as an after thought by the company. For example:
After years of research and development and consulting with paintball’s top athletes, HK Army is proud to present you with the best loader experience paintball has to offer; The TFX. Utilizing a unique patented drive system that boasts a consistent feed rate and anti-jam capabilities as well as incorporating innovative features, the TFX performs better and is more reliable than any other loader on the market.
With the perfect synergy of function and style, the TFX can accommodate 216 Rounds with the stock shell. The Zero Gravity Lift Tray is an industry first; the integrated tray increases the volume capacity without compromising the size of the loader shell. The spring activated lift is designed to elevate and guide paintballs toward the feed system, never leaving a ball behind.
When paintballs are in the feed tray, the patented Swoop Stack assembly takes over. The system is designed to activate as each ball is shot and to continuously drive paintballs forward into the marker. The 3 layer slip system enables the paddles to effectively agitate and loosen any possible jam to continue feeding. The Swoop Stack operates flawlessly with all types of paint; oily, dimpled, brittle, and even works perfect with Reball and other reusable paintballs.
The highly advanced technology is not to be mistaken as complicated. The TFX is completely toolless; the shell, tray, and Swoop Stack assembly can be disassembled with ease for quick cleaning and easy access to change the 2 AA batteries needed to operate the TFX.
Completing the package is the extremely sleek and low profile Combat Contour shell that is constructed of high grade impact resistant material, which will withstand any abuse during play. The shell incorporates a push button QuickLid feature which makes changing from stock lid to HK Army Speed Feed effortless. The electronics are protected with a water resistant coating to keep you active in snow, rain or shine.
When you’re off the field, keep your TFX safe with the included EXO Eva case. The EXO case is a hard shell case that will protect your TFX and can easily be stored in your gearbag while traveling. Included in the EXO case is a convenient utility pocket where you can store a spare lid and extra batteries.
