Review: Alright, lets get the weakness out of the way first (i barely think this is a weakness, but others may disagree). The Pulse, I have to admit, is rather heavy, especially when loaded with paint. Mainly because I am using 6 AA batteries. HOWEVER, there is an option for 2 9 volts which is WAY more light and WAY more convenient. Now I know you looked at weakness and saw "RF module" and thought, "what's this guy smoking?". Well let me explain. Its 35 bucks a piece for the thing, and its put into one marker. I dont know if you can switch it up to different ones, but the fact that its stuck in one marker makes it somewhat expensive if you have multiple ones.

Now thats out of the way, lets get to the good stuff.

SPEED
This thing is wicked fast. Im not joking. We actually got 4 hoppers together: Halo, Ricochet, Vlocity, and Pulse. We put the same amount of paint in each, and drop tested them at the same time. Pulse took a huge lead, vlocity and halo took a very close 2nd and 3rd (respectively), and the ricochet was just blown out of the water. Put just a HANDFULL of paintballs in there, turn it on, and watch. You will just see them zip right outta there, you wont even know what happened.

NECK
Neck is cut down smaller than practically every other loader out there. Sits low enough for a low profile, but high enough so that you could still hit that reverse button. Make sure you have a good feedneck on your marker! This is crucial because the Pulse sits very low and has no O-ring's on the neck like the ricochet does. If you have a stock neck BE SURE TO GET A LOCKING ONE AS SOON AS YOU GET THE PULSE. First day I played with it, i had my stock neck on my ion. As soon as i dove, this thing was turned all the way around and half the neck was already coming off (which is bad. small feedneck+big loader= bad gameplay). But as soon as you get a good feedneck, this thing sits really low.

REVERSE
No need for a rip anymore. All you need is this little button on the bottom. Simply push it real fast, and it reverses the drive to get rid of the jam. The good thing is that it goes at a moderate rate. If you have a rip, then you could just muscle that thing as much as you want until you get the jam out. But there is a risk that you break paint too, so this button is a real help.

BATTERY
Six AA's or two 9-volts. I havent tried out the 9-volt option yet, but the AA's are heavy (as explained before). So how is this a strength you ask? Well, the Pulse can sit there for 4 hours, just spinning continuously until it dies (so i've heard). I plan to try this one day when i have extra batteries and no time. But so far, i've played with it for quite a while and it shows no signs of slowin down anytime soon.

LID
Standard Magnetic Lid. Keeps it nice and snug so paint doesnt go flying out of your hopper when you dive into the 50 off the break. Good idea though, to break it in, cuz it is somewhat difficult to get open without some good force (or just get a speedfeed, works like a charm).

SHELL
The shell is the hardest plastic ive seen. I watched videos of people jumping on them, pounding them, and even using it as a hammer. I of course was hesitant at first, but eventually decided to try it myself. I took a steel toe boot and kicked this thing against the wall. Not a dent or crack on it. There was a minor scratch because it was a concrete wall (stupid me), but hey, other than that microscopic scratch, the thing was still GOLD.

Changability
The drive train can fit into any pulse shell. My friend had a black shell, I had a smoke one. I wanted black, he wanted smoke. So, we take our drive trains out, swap shells and Badaboom, new hopper shells for both of us. (and in case your wondering "why didnt you just trade the whole hopper?", well its because he had his for a lot longer than me. And my drive train is new. I want to keep my drive train, but want his shell. So there ya go, im not an idiot, horray).

RF Module
Alright here's where the good stuff comes in. I do not personally have one, but I have tried markers that have them installed. I personally see no difference (in semi, or other stock board settings) because either way, it still feeds fast as hell. But once you get into ramping and such, there is a difference. It makes the Pulse and your gun a lot more consistent with each other. I dont think im going to get one just yet. THe RF is something you might want to save when you have extra money and you are satisfied with your other upgrades.

Drive Cone
Its perfect for the pulse. what more can I say? Its gentle on paint, and when it does break, its easy to clean the sucker out. not much here.

Sound? Eye?
None of the above. Basically, you are free to use any kind of color paint you want so dont have to worry about dark colored paint not being fed. Or if your gun is like super ninja and makes absolutely no noise, then you still have no worries, cuz the Pulse delivers. Basically, if there is a space in your firing chamber, then the Pulse puts a paintball there. Simple as that. If its full (with a paintball), then the pulse "pulses" (every .5 second or every 5 seconds depending on what mode you are in), and waits for you to shoot.


Well that took a while to write, but hey, the Pulse deserves it. Its definately TOP OF THE LINE.
Conclusion: BUY THIS HOPPER! I know its expensive, but if you want to walk on the field with the best equipment, dont go out there with like an upped ego, tank, and a...halo. Go out there with a PULSE on your gun. You'll love it, your gun will thank you, and you speed fingered demons can go crazy with it. I think its definately the best out there.

Will a smartparts q lock no rise make the hopper sit really low ? Will i still be able to flick the switch?
