Review: I knew exactly what I was getting when I got the Egg 2, and its held up to my expectations. You can get these hoppers for pretty cheap, around $30-40 used. They are plenty fast, feeding 19 bps drop test, and around 16-17 on the gun itself. The capacity is nice, a pod doesn't fill it up all the way like a Halo B or Reloader B. On some guns they look nice, others not too much. Either way, the Egg 2 will get its job done without causing any problems. This thing is simple to take apart and put back together, unscrew the screws, take the shells apart, clean the inside, put it back. Its good on paint too, since its not force fed the odds of breaking paint in the hopper is reduced due to the lack of tension applied on the ball stack. That is probably the only good thing about not being fully force-fed. Some bad things about the hopper is the shells. The shells aren't really "weak," they're just not that strong. Don't drop it from 10 feet onto concrete, and it shouldn't break. It withstood a horrible blow that caused my ASA to break, so its strong enough for me. Another bad thing is the battery door, if the batteries are left in too long, the tension will cause the door and part of the shell to crack, and eventually break. Its quite a common thing, the best way to avoid it is to put the batteries in only when needed, and leave the battery door open when not in use. It is true that after several uses, the lid doesn't completely close. The fact that the lid pulls down is ok, it doesn't bother me because when I reloader I don't do it in a crazy fast fashion that I need to get paint as quickly as possible. The lid does bounce back and not close 100% over time, but it doesn't matter.
Conclusion: If you don't need to shoot over 15 bps consistantly, and want to get a reliable and cheap hopper, get this one. Sure the Halo B is a better hopper, but it also costs around $60 more new.
