Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month5 of 6 people found this review helpful.

2 years
Products Used:
Marker Setup: I used a Sentinel TS, Custom 98, and WGP vert cocker with it
Strengths: It holds more balls, tough.
Weaknesses: It jam's easily.
Review: This is by far the worst performing gravity fed hopper I have ever used. It is made well, but that patented "Hi-Flo Channel" is anything but high flowing. I think the channel provides a place for balls to get caught so that nothing can get down the feed tube. Usually if this happens with a VL200, a little shaking will clear it. With this, you have to totally invert the hopper to clear it and then about 6-10 shots later, you are jammed again.
Conclusion: Don't recommend I get a motorized hopper. I have a Halo B on my Bushmaster and have owned a Ricochet AK (works good, just slow...) and an Evo II (POS!) as well. I use gravity fed hoppers on my loaner/backup markers.

I wouldn't recommend this loader to anybody. They still feed balls and are well made, but this product only deserves a 2 at best. Get a Ricochet G2K or a VL200/clone!

i have to disagree a Evo 2 is not a POS, get a 25.00 Z-Board and u'll be fine!

Woohoo! You posted a comment to a review almost 2 and half years old! Yeah for you. I still stand by my opinion of the EvoII. It works fine. However, the loader itself is poorly designed and made of inferior materials. The door is the worst and most fragile thing ever. Talk about an overpriced piece of (POS) plastic. Get a Halo...
