More than 5 years
Products Used:
vlocity, reloader b2, reloader b, halo b & V35, Vlocity jr. Revolution
Marker Setup: (((NXT))) Shocker
Vlocity Loader w/Gangstar chip
Empire Fuel 71ci/4500psi
Phat mini drop
Hybrid push button ASA
Strengths: Performance for the Price. (Bang for your Buck)
Weaknesses: Seemingly large profile. It looks big.
Review: I bought this because I needed a hopper that could keep up with an Invert Mini that I loan to friends when they want to play. After some research and price watching, the Viewloader Eye Force won. And let me be the first to tell you how amazing this hopper is for what you pay for it!

First, it holds over 230 paintballs and still has the same target profile as any other hopper. (for some reason, it looks bigger than it really is). This would be the natural choice for any back player who needs to hold his lanes down. It holds about 40 more paintballs than a Halo B.

Second, it's Viewloader! We know how legendary this company is when it comes to paintball loaders. They revolutionized the game years ago with the Revolution hopper and continue to make great products today.

Last, it does not blend paint like the Ricochets and Triumph models of similar price do. On the Triumph (Tippmann) and Ricochet models, the paddles that spin the paint are hard plastic and can (not always, but sometimes) turn your hopper into a paint blender. The Eye Force has soft rubber-like paddles that allow for agitation while keeping tension on the ball stack.

I promise you I do not work for VL, but I am an advocate of their products. I can honestly tell you that this is a hopper worthy of consideration for everyone.

On Marker results:

On the Mini, the hopper kept up with the marker in every mode. 15bps ramp, 20bps semi w/ eyes on and off (I can only summon 18bps) but you get the idea.

There were no chops or dry fires. This hopper works as good as any hopper out there, its just cheaper!
Conclusion: I would say buy it for the $69 price tag. Wal-Mart should and probably will start selling them soon for less.

TONS of Bang for your Buck, Old-school Revvy good looks, Champagne performance on a Beer Budget! Go get one!!
10 out of 10
