Fridaddy Friday, June 23rd, 2006
Period of
Product Use:
3 months
Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Similar
Products Used:
The old PVC stick loaders, Worr Games 40 rd loader.
Marker Setup: NW-89
Sniper 2
Trracer
Strengths: Small, light, easy to open and load.
Weaknesses: Th lid hinge seems week.
Review: Well, I got this to use on my blue splash Sniper 2 pump. I did not like the opaque clear so the first thing I did was throw it in th pot of boiling water and Rit brand black dye. The result is a opaque blue hopper. Rather kool looking if I may say so. You can dye yours any color but remember, you need DARK colors to make it somewhat nice. My black came out medium blue. A normal red will come out pink, so plan ahead.

The elbow it comes with is not a standard neck, its for a "Blade" marker. But most standard elbows work fine. Older pumps like mine need a bit of work, but its not a long involved process, just a few turns of black tape on the neck and everything fits OK.

Now this isn't a hopper for electros or even mech semis. Its a pump hopper, and for that use is the best out there. Unlike the 40 round "ammo box" commonly used its quiet when full and it feeds better then the ammo box. PVC stick loaders feed fast but are limited to about 8 rounds and are tall. Using the 100+ hoppers defeat the purpose of playing pump, i.e. being quick and agile. This small hopper is quick, compact and easy to load.

Just remember like all hoppers fill it %90 full or it will jam.
Conclusion: I like this hopper. Its small and compact. The large lid makes it easy to load with a ten round tube under fire. The hinge for the lid seems cheesy but what do you expect for $3.50?

I like it. not everything from Brass Eagle is bad.

For what its designed for, pump play, its the best out there.

^I do hope you're joking. Pumps are still in wide use by paintballers today.

What a Poser! I too have been playing since 1987 and that kind of statement just shows how much of a noob you really are. Pumps are great and hopefully after the electro trend has hit its peak and lost popularity( I give it another 2-3 years), Pumps will be more in fashion with the younger crowd. I already see a lot of kids interested in pump play as it is now.
