Review: Ok, well, I got this for a pump I have. It's ugly as sin, and is probably the worst design I have ever seen in a hopper--because it's a sphere, it presents the same (large) profile from ALL angles, therefore at least doubling the chance of recieving a hopper hit.

The site claims 10 bps. This is complete crap. If you have a stack of balls thats 3 or 4 high, then yes; 10 bps is realistic, but that is not the hopper actually FEEDING 10 balls...

I hate the color, so I spray-painted it black.

I hate how the feed neck is at an angle, so when you actually try to adjust it so that the opening tab for the lid point towards you, the hopper is at a rather odd tilt to the left.

Some of these have threaded feednecks, so you can only use them with SpinLoader elbows. What a scam.

The on/off is neat, but the again, that's why they have one on powerfeeds...

The opening is smaller than most hoppers, which means that you'll have a better chance of spilling paint when rloading with pods.

I hate how it's called an "E"-tron, like it's electric or something...just another ploy to scam the n00bs into wasting their hard-earned money..

The whole thing with reloading with hoppers instead of pods is rather moronic, for many reasons...

1. Pods have a smaller profile on your back than these bulky monstrosities.

2. You would have to waste the money on more of these hoppers and a special harness.

3. You'd still be using a gravity feed hopper...eew...

4. Most markers nowadays have some sort of clamping feedneck. Even if they don't, most still have a very snug fitting feedneck so that your hopper stays on. While they guy on the other team reloads with a pod in 4 seconds or so, you'll take half a minute just wrenching your hopper off, pulling another one out, and pushing that one into the feedneck.

The verdict: Complete crap.

So, here's what I did with it, because I couldn't stand the sight of it and I could barely contain the little voice inside my head telling me to go in the backyard and shoot it up until it was a mess of plastic chips among a puddle of paint....
I cut out about 2 inches from the middle section and then cemented the two halves together--Voila!-- a pocket hopper for my beloved pump. It still looks fugly, but at least it's being put to good use...
Conclusion: I hate it. It's a bad idea. I would rather 10 rd tubes (and often do, matter of fact...)Only good for making gee-hetto pocket hoppers.

You also have a 100% chance of playing like crap because

1. You have to struggle attaching and reattaching the hoppers securely so that you don't lose one in mid-game.

2. This is compounded by the fact that it's a gravity fed hopper. Good luck shooting above 4 bps reliably.

Good day.

Nope. The only real difference is the metric system and the way we spell metre and such. (Canada= Metre USA =Meter and so on)
