Review: Well I used this hopper at a small 4 team tournament that my friend hosted. It was a 3-man tourney. The hopper worked wonderfully for me and my team ended up winning, and thanks to my hopper, my Spyder Pilot wasn't starving.

I did notice though, that when the paintballs were just right, the IR eye in the feed neck would be right in between two of the balls so the motor would start spinning. This happened a couple of times to me but all I had to do was shoot a round and it went back to normal.

On the Y-Boarded eggy, there is a plastic screw thing next to the on/off switch. This adjusts the speed of the loader. I tryed to adjust it the first day I got it and the thing broke right off. Be careful with that piece. The setting it is now set at is still fast enough for me.

I really like how the hopper is pushed back and it allows you to get that much more of your barrel around the bunker to shoot. AND NO IT DOES NOT THROW THE GUN OFF BALANCE. Actually, if you have a long barrel (like I do) it really helps level that extra weight out.
Conclusion: This hopper is perfect for a low-end electro like a Spyder Pilot or an Ion. It can even keep up with higher end guns.

If you are new to speedball, and you only have $70 BUY IT you wont be dissapointed.

I would just like to clarify something: The ION is technically a high-end electro.
