Every other hopper, from the VL-200 to the Eggy2 w/ Z board.
If you REALLY wanna see my setups... which I doubt, go to:
- Newer ones are gentle on paint
- Rip drive helps a TON
This hopper is incredible. I haven't had any issues with jamming (but if I ever do, the rip drive will let me clear out the jam in a couple seconds without opening the hopper), breaking paint, or falling apart. It just appears to be extremely solidly built, and fixing any damage that might be caused is very simple, due to the hopper's modular design.
The spring-loaded drive cone allows for burst feeding rates in excess of 50 BPS, with a claimed sustained feed-rate of around 22. With an upgraded board, this number can be raised to as high as 35, which is incredible. Since owning this hopper, I have not had any problems with breaking paint inside of it, and the one time that the Halo couldn't "see" the paint (it was really cheap, almost transparent), I simply shut it off and used the rip drive to play that day. One full wind will get you about 15 balls, before you need to turn it again.
I would reccomend this to any player with a marker that can handle it.
The strengths by far outweigh the disagvantages. Nothing else compares. Get one.
