Strengths: Fast, 19bps

Eye
did I say fast?
Weaknesses: Hopper lid
battery door/ battery holder
Review: Ok, I wanted an electronic hopper because I am tired of chopping so I want to make it
so I would chop less I found this really cheap $60 brand new the revlution is $50 so for only $10 more I get like 8-9 more bps just in case I ever get a new gun Ok,

I dont like those reviews that are all cramped up so after I got my part over about why I got its going to be spaced, ok now I am going into detail about the strengths and weaknesses

Strengths:

This hopper is Fast like really really fast I did drop tests

Here is what I got (loaded with 150 balls)
Test 1) 8.27 seconds/ 18.13 bps
Test 2) 8.19 seconds / 18.31 bps
Test 3) 7.89 seconds / 19.01 bps
Test 4) 8.13 seconds / 18.45 bps

Thats an average of 18.48 bps, that is fast

Looks

I love the way it looks how it sits back some instead of straight up and down ( good and bad)

EYE

Notice that I put the "EYE" in all caps because this and speed are tied for my favorite features of this hopper the eye works flawlessly very fast reaction time and so far it hasnt broken

Weaknesses:
Now the weaknesses for me so far are not severe but they are worth metioning

The hopper lid:

A lot of people hate this the lid mine hasnt broken yet but some people I know lids have broken

The main flaw I see in it is the stiffness of the springs sure it seems easy now to open it at home because your taking your time but on the field you dont have that much time to open it especially while hiding behind a bunker and doing it 1 handed but in time you can get it open

Also the spring power could potentially cause the lid or shell to crack

The battery door/ and holder

This is IMO a more serious problem

Now I have no clue what VL did while they were designing it or just messed up and give you a piece of plastic to solve your problem

Now life would be easier if they designed it like a clip that you hook up to

Now the first time I tried to put my batteries in I thought my hopper was broken because they werent going in but in some time I got them in there ( Im not sure but if there is all that pressure on the battery door would it be possible to break off)


Now as long as these two things dont break they wont be to big of problems



Conclusion: I scored it by
4- speed
2- looks
4-eye
-1) for the lid
-1) for the battery place so 4+4+2= 10 then -2 you get 8!!!
This is an awsome hopper definitely get one

It is pretty easy to remove one of the two springs to make it easier to open the lid.
