Review: I took my mechanical Spyder MR1 and played speedball with it. My MR does not have any type of anti chop technology on it. Well, this hopper is now my anti chop technology. With my old gravity feed hopper, I would occasionally chop a ball at a high rate of fire. I dumped a pod into the Empire Reloader II and unloaded as fast as I could pull the trigger. The result was not one single chop. It performed flawlessly. It seems pretty durable too. I accidentsally dropped it on the concrete floor in my basement and it was fine. No scatches either. The magnetic lid make it easy to reload while playing and if you play woodsball (which is what I play most) you can be more qiuet about it since there is no big snap sound when you shut it (unless you slam it) The other issue is the feedneck is a little thick and can take a little muscle to install. If you have an adjustable feedneck adaptor its not so bad. Its a pretty minor issue. Large capacity: 210 balls. I believe this hopper is rated somewhere between 12-15 bps so if you spent a grand for for your electro gun that shoots 30bps, this is not the hopper for you. Spend the $150 to get a forcefed loader. Otherwise, this is a great hopper for most guns.
Conclusion: This is a great choice for people who play woodsball or use a marker that shoots in the 15bps range or less which is most guns. At $60 its a bargain.
