Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month37 of 45 people found this review helpful.

2 years
Products Used:
None, standard viewloader hopper.
Marker Setup: Trilogy pro cocker, Evil driver barrel, pmi pure energy 68 4500psi tank, empire reloader 2 hopper, shock tech drop forward.
Strengths: Sound activated, magnetic lid, good weight. Low battery indicator.
Weaknesses: Feed neck needed sanding.
Review: After getting the feed neck sanded down and finally placed on my marker the hopper did well in it's perforance. The only trouble i ran into was it started not feeding right, but all that i had to do was removed the batteries and put them back in and it worked just fine. (As though it needed to be reset.) If I am correct the hopper can feed up to 12 balls a second, which is good enough for your lower end electros or high end mechanicals (like my autococker). While i was playing I was able to keep laying the paint down and did not have to worry about the hopper not loading. Every time the trigger was pulled and the marker shot, the hopper loaded paint like it was suppose to. The hopper has an automatic shut off after thirty minutes of non use so it saves battery power.
Conclusion: I greatly recommend this hopper to any one that wants a inexpensive but good hopper. The only thing I can advise on is to keep your batteries out of it until you are ready to play. Having to sand down the feed neck can be a pain if you don't have a dremel or faster way of sanding. But I would rather have to sand it down for it to fit then it be to small.

a trilogy is considered a low end cocker...

Well according to this site and the rep of the company i would considered it a higher end mechanical even if it is a lower end cocker. Besides since they were able to have the three way built in I would think it would be a cheaper marker to make therefore make it cheaper to sell.

trilogy pro is the name of the marker

can you even sand the reloader down, i have one and it wont fit in my BKO, so i custom built an elbow, i just thought the sound sensors would be damaged if you sanded it.

No it didn't hurt the sound sensors at all. Of course it wouldn't hurt to take the batteries out before working with it. But to answer your question it can be sanded. You could use really rough sandpaper then once you finish use a smaller sized grit to smooth it out. Or you could use use a dremel tool and sand around the feed neck keeping it as even as possible. So far i've sanded my own and and friend's and they both worked out great.

Its prob meant to be sanded down, as many new hoppers are (I believe haloB and eggy II are) being built with large feed necks. Since there are so many different sizes between feed necks, hopper companies are doing this.

would the empire rloader 2 work good in my avent???

the place i got my gear from sent this to me by accident, but i think im gonna keep it. just wondering, is sandpaper the best alternative if you dont have a tool? and if so how long does it take

SynjenX Thursday, December 30th, 2004 | 5:38 am PST
It could take a while. Just mke sure to use rough grit sandpaper and finish it off with a finer grit, or I suppose you could use a file if you had access to one.
To answer um...'s question the loader would work fine on a avent.

.mista t. Saturday, January 1st, 2005 | 4:02 pm PST
yeah i just finished it, in about (total) 3-4 hours with sandpaper. it fits fine on my prostock now.
btw good review.

SynjenX Sunday, January 2nd, 2005 | 2:16 pm PST

well most of these cockers built after 03 kinda suck.

i thought this thing fed 15

will this work on my ion?

Lyxtwing Wednesday, April 20th, 2005 | 7:07 pm PST
Ion has eyes so any hopper should work. This one should keep up, but the rebound is capped at 15bps(as far as I know) so you may want a faster loader (reloader B, Egg2, Halo, Q-loader), if you use it.

TippmannPhreak Friday, June 10th, 2005 | 1:27 pm PST
The feed necks are intentionally made too thick.

Cobalt Saturday, June 25th, 2005 | 9:46 am PST
what is the actual bps for this loader? i've seen 10-12, 14, and 15 all over the place and would this be perfect for a Model 98 Custom Pro Basic?
