Experience:

Products Used:
V-locity
Marker Setup: Stock ION
Strengths: Long battery life.
Weaknesses: Occasional jams, very easy to break
Review: Even if I haven't used other products, the price tag on this hopper makes it a best buy option, other than the occasional jams (not too many but it happens) the hopper is just fine, you just have to turn it off/on when it happens. No ball chops because of it. It's compact design might bounce off incoming balls if you're lucky but don't count on it though...

[Later] ...Well, if you're a tournament player this is not a solution at all. The neck is pretty slim and broke instantly in a bad dunk behind a bunker. Another problem with it is that balls inside the neck tend to jump while you're running making it difficult to run and shoot, and finally the 15 bps that they claim, if it fed constant i would be happy with 10 bps, but this design doesn't help the feeding rate and while it is 15 bps for short periods of time, most of the time the feed rate varies greatly, you could test this by filling it up and letting it unload without the gun and you'll see what i mean. And for the price, 60$ it's a waste considering that a Vlocity is 120$ and if for some reason you would brake it, you could pay 40$ for another shell, which triumph doesn't have and you'd have to buy another one.
Oh, and about the design, doesn't help bouncing balls of the it at all, too hard the surface.
Conclusion: Maybe the best buy option out there, long battery life, very light weight, compact design

- Strike the above, if you're serious about paintball get a high end loader. It's a waste of time and money

Poor review. It's price does not make it a best buy, as it is slightly more expensive than the loader it is based on, the Ricochet. Insufficient detail.
