Review: I bought this hopper to hold me over until my Halo TSA LCD arrived from Ebay. It was cheap and it said it could feed 8 balls per second. I just got a new Spyder Pilot E-trigger so I was excited to try it out. So I took it to my local indoor playing field and had nothing but problems. The only good thing is that it has raised tabs on the feedtube that fit nicely in my Lapco feedneck. I went to crono the gun and the hopper could not keep up with the trigger set on 6 bps. I chopped 2 balls on a 6 round burst. Much to my chagrin I had to play on semi auto. So I got out to play a few rounds and got owned because everyone knew where I was. An earlier review said that this would be a good hopper for woodsball, but this couldn't be further from the truth. Woodsball is not about high bps; Its about stealth, something that this hopper does not allow you. Meanwhile, the battery door keeps opening and the battery keeps falling out. I finally put the VL-200 on it and has less chops. Complete waste of money.
Conclusion: Don't buy it, save up the extra 30 bucks and buy something better, or just stick with the VL-200, its just as good and you'll get more eliminations by being sneaky.
