Products Used:
Marker Setup: Spyder Victor, 14" 2n1 Twilight barrel, Empire Reloader II
Strengths: Solid, quiet, cheap
Weaknesses: Feed neck needs to be sanded to fit
Review: As i only have a victor, I didnt really need a hopper that would feed 12BPS, as the most I get out of the victor is 8-9(at a guess) if I am really lucky, but with the gravity feed hopper there are times when i out shoot its feed rate.
With the reloader II I never had this problem, it was quiet, the lid didnt open once even tho i was running around and jumping behind things. It is a little higher than my standard hopper and I did get tagged out because of it, it's just learning to keep a bit lower down from now on.
The only issue I had with it was the feed neck being to big to fit any of of my markers, but 5 minutes with my dremel fixed that. It feels very solid and sturdy and i only had one break all day, tho wether this was because of the hopper i cant tell as i was running for cover and firing one handed so it is quite possible that it had feed properley and bounced back up the neck while i was running and firing, causeing the bolt to jam an me to hide behind a baracade for a few minutes trying to unjam it.

15/02/05 Found out that if I run the hopper to empty it will break one of the last balls left in the feed neck. Not really an issue as it was after the game had finished and i was using the last of the paint on the target range, and I never let it get that empty during a game. I love it, great hopper for my play style.
Conclusion: I like it, it was cheap, works very well for my setup and I will be able to use it on my next marker when i upgrade in the next few months. If you dont need over 13BPS then this is a great hopper.
