Review: Well to start off, i like to play a sniper/sharpshooter role, so i need somthing that is low profile, but not limited in its ammo supply (like a Tac Cap). THis hopper covered both of those needs. At 180 balls, I wont be running dry in a firefight anytime soon. The ball deflection design really does work, but unfortunately, they have on some occasions deflected into my face. The biggest problem i have with this hopper is that the part where it connects to the cyclone, it has started to leave grooves along the path that i twist. Basically, every time that i twist my hopper off, the grooves become more pronounced. THis has lead to the problem that it has become extremely difficult to remove my hopper with one hand. I now need 2 hands, and instead of wiggling it off, i simply must just pull it off with both hands. THe grooves that i talk about are very small, more like scratches, but if you run your finger over them, you can tell its deeper than a scratch, so thus i consider it a groove. The reason why i think this hopper caused the minute grooves is because it is made from a stronger plastic than the stock hopper, which leads me to my next point. THe hopper is louder then the stock hopper due to the difference in plastic used in the construction of the R-5. I recommend doing the mod that another person posted on this website, where you tape cloth to the inside of the hopper. that, or you can buy the new "sniper" model from richochet that has a variation of this mod already installed.
Conclusion: It is a great hopper and i would recommend it to anyone who wants Low Profile, Ball Deflection Technology and Ball Capacity. It could get an 8/10, -1 for the loudness of the hopper, and -1 from the cyclone feed issue. a great hopper never-the-less and i highly recommend it to ANYONE!

Hey man! I just bought this hopper and will be writing a review on it after Frosty's Revenge on March 10th at Wasaga Beach so I can get some more experience with it. I also find it pretty loud, so I may have to do the dampening idea here. =P

Anyways, if you have MSN, add me at IF you live around the South Simcoe area, we should try to arrange a game sometime!
