I purchased this hopper after my halo fried and I was expecting a not to great hopper that was maybe about the same quality of an eggy. In some ways I was right and in some ways I was wrong. First off lets see the strengths.
this thing feeds fast I did a drop test and it easily fed 20bps
feedneck size is a little small so it will easily fit into any feedneck
easy to turn on and off with a little toggle switch
comes with the microswitch needed if you get the upgrade chip this may seem small but it makes it much easier to upgrade.
runs off two 9 volts
easy to remove/replace battery door
paddle wheel is very nice and paintballs fit well in it.
a little small and goofy lookinhg.
when paintballs are in the feed neck and the paddle wheel usually stops on this hopper it just slows down I'm not sure whether this is a good or bad thing.
all in all it is a great hopper.
Great hopper has a lot of strengths but a few weaknesses I'm gonna give this a 9 out of 10.
When it slows down put your finger in the paddle it should take very little force to stop the paddle. And you will feel tension being put on your finger.. move your finger from the eye and leave finger in paddle and tension gets even stronger. Once the paddle is filled and there is tension on the stack it only applies very little force. Not enough to break paint.
