Review: Well I always hated the way your normal sausage shaped hopper (VL-200, etc..) looked but at the same time I didn't want to drop the money on an agitating hopper. The G2K seemed like a great common ground. Looks cool, and it's cheap. 25 bucks Canadian is pretty decent. I put the hopper on my marker as soon as it arrived and it looked great. "Damn", I thought, "I'm gonna kick a$$ and look good with this hopper". Well... I looked good. When you put this thing in a feed neck and tighten it up, it ain't going anywhere. The o-rings are great in that way. This hopper also makes your marker look a lot slimmer, both top to bottom and side to side. And you don't look like everyone else on the field. Yup it was going to be the perfect gravity fed hopper... until I used it.

Somebody actually said that a VL-200 could never keep up with a G2K. Well that person must have parkinsons because you gotta shake this thing all the damn time! My first day using this I was ready to jump on the damn thing. I've never had so many feed problems. It even contributed to my first bolt-chop. I was so angry so I went to the forums and asked people why the damn thing wouldn't work. Mostly idiots that recommended a halo or revvy commented. Idiots. Then one intelligent individual told me, "Never fill it completely and you should be fine". Smart person. Once I started doing this the G2K performed much better. It still just barely keeps up with a VL-200 but it looks nice and I'm a slave for fashion what can I say.
Conclusion: If you really like the way it looks, buy it. I'm still using mine but I can't say I'm overly pleased with it. If you remember to only put like 120-140 paintballs in it it'll work just fine. If you completely load it hope for an earthquake cause you're gonna have to shake the bejesus out of it. All style no substance. But hey never had a paintball break on my hopper yet. Just get an Ak if you have the money. I know. I'm an idiot.

I don't know why, but I found that sentence to be really funny. BoneDaddy, you're all right! :)
