Review: I went to Wal-Mart to buy a new gun with my brother. When we were there, we got a Talon Ghost(read my review) and a Blade 02. Since the Talon Ghost had a tiny hopper that SUCKS(it came w/ the Talon Ghost), I tried out this one(it came w/ the Blade 02). Yes, it did hold more paintballs than the other one, and looked kinda cool, it jammed almost every time. It is pretty small. You can use it in a game and it is almost guaranteed not to get hit.
Conclusion: Once you get a Blade 02, make the switch to the VL200 hopper immediately!!!! I'm giving the VL pocket hopper a 5: -7 because it's unreliable and holds so little, and +2 because it is small and looks cool.
Rating:
5 out of 10

I will agree that BE quality leaves a lot to be desired but the Talon, for what it is, performs well and is as accurate as most pumps and takes a serious beating. Granted its pump action isn't the smoothest but that is a common issue with all nelson based guns, its just the design seems to make it a little worse than most.
The hopper is one of the best open class pump hoppers on the market. For limited paint pump games, you couldn't ask for more, except maybe a stronger shell or even better, a cover( I hope someone sees this and makes one).
