Out of the two hoppers listed above, this ranks in the middle. It is clearly better than the Overdrive, which has constant feed, and only 8BPS I think. It can't really compare to the Halo however which is one of the best markers on the market, but it did however surprise me for its price. It is sound activated, which is actually a one up on the Halo, and I find it superior to an eye. The magnetic lid is great because there is no "snap" when you go to reload. It is somewhat of a light hold however, great for back players, poor for front, so you can't really knock it either way it just depends what you play, I personally like lighter lids, and I play front...its just preference. The shell to me doesnt seem to be made of the greatest material, but I havent had any problems yet so we will see, just doesnt appear to be the strongest. My biggest gripe about this hopper is how complicated it can be to turn it on and off. You have to click on once to turn it on, and hold it until the low battery blinks then release to turn it off, but this only seems to work sometimes. I always have to check it by opening and closing the lid, if its on the hopper will feed...if not it wont. It feeds 14 BPS, which is great for the price and lower end mechs out there. I think it also looks decent which is another plus. The feedneck I did find to be a problem, it kept sliding out of my feedneck...but I put some tape on it to add friction and it stays now.
This is a good hopper for the price. For a medium speed hopper I think its probably one of the best one out there, I'm not a huge fan of Ricochet, so I would go for this. Sound activation is top of the line technology, I think you will be happy with this hopper.
9 out of 10
