Review: I have not had one ball chop shooting with the Cyclone Feed System. Some people might think that you'll use a lot more gas, but that isn't true. The cyclone uses EXCESS gas leftover to operate, and I have been getting the same amount of shots per fill.

I have 2 friends with the E-trigger (Custom Pro) and they still chop with an eggy and a halo. My other friend with a RT chops on his eggy as well. I have not yet chopped and it pisses them off :)

Side Note: The Cyclone can feed up to 17-18 bps without chopping, even though Tippmann claims up to 15. You can also buy an R-5 Hopper which allows you to take advantage of the "Ricochet" deflection technology.
Conclusion: This upgrade is a must for anyone with a RT (requires a T-adapter), E-bolt, or E-Trigger mod. I am starting to see them selling for about $50 now, and it's definitely worth every penny.

I have a Custom Pro E-trigger and with my eggy 2 it never chopped. I am upgrading to the cyclone because I am tired of buying batteries and If I want to get past 13 bps I need a $50 direct feed. To anyone with an rt or e-trigger a cyclone is much better than an e-hopper because you need the e-hopper and the direct feed for over 13 bps and that is $150-$200 while a cyclone is $80 CDN. And not to diss your setup but an e-bolt is a waste of money at $300 in my opinion.

I agree with Dan, the e-bolt is just not HALF as good as the e-trigger. I like the cyclone much better than electronic hoppers, mostly because an electronic hopper can fry itself if it gets wet ):
