Review: Weight:
This hopper by far in my opinion is the lightest hopper (electronic) that you can buy. Once I opened the plastic seal it was held in I could definately see the difference between this, the Halo B, and the eVLution II.

Size:
This hopper is incredibly small and compact. As soon as I put it on my gun I could see that it has such a lower profile compared to the Halo B and eVLution II hoppers, and if you play in tournaments you want your gun to be the least visible as possible (this kinda hopper would be great for a front man).

Durability:
Many people complain that this hopper breaks extrmely easily, and I don't know why.... because I have dropped mine SO MANY TIMES and from about 5 feet (by accident lol) and it has yet to show a single mark on its shell. They say bad construction, I say bad luck.

Price:
In comparison to the other two hoppers it competes with, this hopper is very cheap. Why buy a heavy Halo B for $100 or a eVLution II for $70 when you can buy a just as good 12v Revolution for $40?

Reliability:
Not much to say here, accept when I used it on my Tippmann 98 Custom and now on my WorrBladed Vertical Feed I haven't experienced a single problem with it whatsoever.

Maintanence:
This hopper is very easy to clean and maintain. After every day at the field I just take it apart (very easy to do), wash out the shells and screws, and just simply put it back together. If anyone has had any experience with the eVLution II and the Halo B, you will know how much of a hassle and pain in the you know what to take it apart, clean it, and then put it back together again.

Speed:
As soon as I got this I immidiately put some Energizer E2 batteries in it and tested the speed... and as Viewloader promized, I clocked this in a drop test at about 10.7 bps. Now, I don't know about you, but if you aren't using your gun on full auto like some Spyders, then it will be hard to shoot 10bps. I used to have a eVLution II w/ Z-Board, but do I really need 23bps???
Conclusion: As everyone knows (hopefully) one of the best teams in paintball (whether you like to admit it or not), Team Dynasty used to be sponsored by WDP. Well.. if you ever watch a video of them using their Angel Speeds (CAPABLE of firing 31bps) you will see that they are using not Halos or eVLution II's, but yes, Viewloader 12v Revolutions.. why? Because during a game are you going honestly going to be able to shoot more than 12bps? Some of you say yes, and I'm sure some of you can, but for most of the paintball world, including Team Dynasty, 12bps isn't easy to shoot.. In fact, I sold my eVLution II w/ Z-Board because its heavier, bigger profile, and with my WorrBladed cocker, as much as I wish I could, I'm not gonna hit 12+bps....
