Review: I regret to inform you readers that the bad outweighs the good on this one. Let's start with good though.
This is a very hopper and it consistently feeds fast. Also the plastic is very sturdy and the hopper is well built. Lastly, the rip drive was kinda handly because it let me manually feed balls into the marker at the chrono without having to turn on the hopper and waste batteries.
The bad...
This hopper ate up the first round of batteries I put in it. I found that duracel (sp) works the best but it stills eats them up and takes 6 AA batteries. Good Goblins!! Yes 6. The battery door is a f**king b**ch to open and close and stuff and you need a screw driver to do it. (cussing for emphasis) Another bad aspect of this hopper is the lid only stays 3/4 of the way open because the lid spring is screwed up. However, I believe that I just recieved a crappy lid spring. It's also wide/fat and I've been hit twice in the hopper because of that. It's heavy as well. (A pound and half I belive it was.) To me this didn't matter greatly because most people tend to not think about the weight of thier gear when they're in a game. Lastly, it is a force feed hopper causing dopuble or triple feeding at times which causes chopping which causes me to become pissed off. To stop the chopping you either must get an eye or new ball detents.
Conclusion: In conclusion, if you want a fast hopper that's pretty light, and doesn't require strong detents or anything....GET AN EGGY 2!! This thing ain't worth.

the parts on the egg 2 break easy. i broke the battery door like 3 times. The lid snaps off way to easy and the shell is weak. I don't know about yours but i have a victory board in mine feeding at the fastest rate and im still using the same batteries that it came with. Battery door isn't hard to get off and on you just didn't put the battery pack in right. You probably messed up the lid because everyone that i know including my self have never had the problem and the lid closes perfectly everytime. Btw if its feeding more than 1 ball at a time that means you need new detents and its not the hopper, and odyssey would have replaced it or fixed it if it was a defect.
