    I have the Spolar and have loaded almost 10K shells without issue, since Sept 2011. I am wondering if the trouble shooting DVD is a recommended purchase. It would be worth it to me, if I ever need it, but I hate to buy something I am never going to need.

    I will be grateful for your input.

    Thanks,

    Ben Peeples.

    I just visited the Spolar site. And if I were ever thinking of buying one, I just decided: NO! The fact that they charge over $1500 for one is OK, but then to charge a customer $15 for a trouble shooting DVD is beyond belief. Keep your DVD and your reloader.

    I'd rather buy a Ponsness Warren.

    Shooter R,

    The Spolar comes with a DVD. I don't know if the troubleshooting DVD is different, but owning two different Spolars, I have never felt the need for a "fix it" DVD.

    I must confess that keeping it very clean, I only use first rate components, and never leave it full of powder, and have never had an issue in several years of use. I have used the pull handle when the first one was new, hydraulic and now electric drive. If you do have a question or concern, any of the Spolar gang will answer your question immediately and accurately. As would Whiz on a PW for that matter.

    PW makes a fine loader as well, and considerably less expensive. I would not let a $15 piece of plastic keep me from a Spolar, but to each their own.

    I have the DVD (Troubleshooting) and think it's very worthwhile.
    When we spend as much money as we do in this sport on guns and fee's,
    then $15.00 is nothing.
    When you have the top of the line loader, it just makes sense to
    learn everything you can about it.
    I bought the DVD with the loader and was glad I did. Learned a lot.
    I use Remington primers 80% of the time. By following the suggestions
    in the DVD and as Darrel say's keep it clean, you will have a
    trouble free loader for life.
