Review: So far I have had no jams, and no chops (resulting from the cyclone feed) since I have purchased it. It also keeps up with my e-grip at any rate of fire or firing mode. Frankly, I am quite pleased with it.
Im giving this a 9 out of 10 for one reason; the flatline interference. Not that it’s that much of a problem (especially if you don’t even own a flatline barrel). Infact, it only requires a small amount of cuting and filing to make it fit. Even though I dont use a flatline any more, this is just pure stupidity on Tippmann’s part. They should make products that are completely compatible with one and other, or at least put on the product description “interferes with flatline shroud”. I did not even know it interfered with it until I stumbled upon it on pb review. If it were not for this, I would have definitely given it a 10 out of 10.

Edit:
Does not function well with lpk. You need to buy bigger banjo fittings and a 1/8” hose if you plan on running your tippmann on low pressure.
Conclusion: A great buy for the price! In my opinion, it beats the crap out of any electronic hopper. The most you need out of a hopper for a Tippmann is 17 bps at the most, and that’s if you have an e-grip. If you have a 98 custom, or custom pro, get it! The cyclone feed is an investment you will not regret. You can get them for as cheep as 60 bucks if you shop around.
