Magnet came out
I just received my TSA and on my Spyder, which is soon to be my backup gun, it feeds nicely and i never chop a ball. the rhythm of the feed motor actually helps me keep my rhythm when i walk the trigger (dont ask). the shot counter is pretty accurate, maybe off 1 or 2 balls sometimes, but who seriously needs that anyways (other than for personal excitement? i dont know) the outer shell is sturdy and can take a beating. i also like all of the options and thats exactly why i got it. i like the fact that i can adjust the spin speed depending on my battery set-up and my marker. i currently have it set on medium to preserve some battery life (the manual says that doing this can double the life, but that seems like a stretch). the cover is magnetic! i was surprised at how strong the magnets were. no more losing paint, hopefully. also, the lean right and left paddle direction change is awesome. i had the marker totally sideways and it was still feeding. great reason to buy it.
i'll be sure to update this when i have more experience with it.
This is pretty minor but when i opened the hopper cover, one of the magnets didnt stay stuck in its original spot. the strength of the magnet actually pulled the cover magnet out and it always sticks to its opposite. i can probably fix this, but it doesnt cause any problems for me. cover doesnt flip open or anything. sometimes its just a pain trying to re-align the magnet with the original hole to close the cover. another thing that concerned me was that the feedneck feels somewhat flimsy. hopefully this doesnt pose an issue for me in the future. the day my hopper flies off is the day i will be pissed. the feedneck i added should hold it on, but the rest is up to the hopper's neck.
recommend this to anyone shooting in the 13-15bps range. whoever said it feeds 20bps is crazy. it does well for my Spyder and it should do fine for my Automag. its a solid product but like everything else, it does have a few weaknesses. i have a ton of friends that use this hopper and love it. aside from its cons, its a great hopper. never get a chop, ever.
