Review: This is an awesome hopper. it fed plenty fast for my autococker. i had hardly any chops, the only ones were my fault (short stroking) it has a very small profile, much smaller than a halo b or reloader b or evoII. and it holds more. i reccomend this hopper to anyone looking for a fast enough hopper on a tight budget, or that needs a small one (being a front) and don't have that fast of a gun. i recomend it over any other hopper in it price range.
The only bad experiences i have had with this hopper is that the hopper lid broke off in the middle of a game. this has hapened with one other hopper too (the stock A-5 hopper) and it is quite annoying. they should make a hopper that if you break the lid you can EASILY change to another and CHEAPLY (without having to buy a whole new body kit) also, the battery door breaks easily and can get lost. this isnt even as easy as the hopper lid to fix. it is a lot easier to clean out than a halo or relaoder b because it has less screws. i liked this hopper and would have loved to test it on a faster gun wioth and without the vision eye on but it got stolen at an outlaw course. o well, what goes around comes around.
Conclusion: This hopper is a great hopper for $40-$50 and has a much higher feed rate than what i expected when i got it. if you have a gun with an eye, and dont need to shoot that fast, or have a gun with a feed rate equal to or less than about 17bps, it is the best hopper for your money. on the other hand, if you play back and you play speedball, go with a reloader b.

17bps is a little fast for this loader. 13bps is about it's limit. A 17bps marker would be likely to suffer chops and misfires with this loader.

notice the word EYE. a gun shooting 17 that has an eye would do great with this hopper. ever tried it? i have. stock ECS vision board on my imp (now i have WAS)
