Review: I used this for three different days before I tossed it aside like a bad habit. The Spin-Loader is only worth the time and effort if you are looking for something different to try out.

If you use 100 rd pods and want a nearly filled hopper to reduce the noise balls make while jumbling around in a 200 rd hopper, than this 130 rounder is for you. It's gravity fed and the design allows for balls to drop down without shaking the hopper. Though at times this does not hold truth.

Aesthetic purposes, the spherical make up of the hopper gives a marker one hell of an ugly profile. Turn it in the right direction and your get something that looked like half an egg. It does not really provide a smaller profile as the hopper still has the same height as regular hoppers. Only froma a side profile of the marker does it's ability to give a smaller profile hold true. Anyone will recognize you will the hopper.

Loading is a little strange unless you are accustom to Ricochette loaders. Though this hopper, depending if you have a center or side-feed marker and use an elbow, will seem cumbersome. Depending on your set up, the flip-lid will open toward or to the side of the marker.

I do not care what others have said. The feeding speed of this thing is just as fast as any other gravity fed hopper. It CANNOT keep up with the speed of high-end electronic markers, including electro-cockers. People who use high-end electronics with eyes, like the DM or Shocker, will NOT chop because they are using eyes.
Conclusion: This hopper is not really worth the time or effort. Using it as a switching type of hopper/pod system takes away the ability to carry more balls. Carrying 4 of these hoppers, plus one mounted on the marker can cost more than 1 VL200 and 4 140rd pods.
