gravity feed / friends electronics/Kingman Spyder Fasta 18
BT4 Assault e grip and exp chamber mag, tippman triumph ssl 200 hopper, remote line and 20 oz co2 and a 4 in one back pack
Price, shape, size, Capacity, reliable
Hard to clean, Cant find a canvas cover for it.
I have fired over 2000 balls out of this hopper on the same battery ,and only had a problem with some cheap thin shelled field paint. It was so thin it was breaking in my half filled ball tubes when i ran.
This suggests to me that these balls would have broke in a regular gravity feed hopper. So to be fair i wont count it in my assessment of this hopper.
While using mid range priced paint i found this hopper to be perfect for feeding you a constant reliable 10 to 15 balls per second .It only operates while the gun is fired and its quiet. 200 ball capacity is nice too. The battery door is located at the back on the bottom and is easy to change. However I never kept its abilities maxed out . I set my rate of fire to 10 bps as I feel 15 to be excessive. It feeds fine and only missed a beat when the hopper had about 7 or 8 balls left bouncing around when I was at a full run and firing. Even then it failed to feed only one ball . Besides if you cant hit someone or pin them down with 10 balls per second I don't think 15 will do the trick for you ether.
UPDATE The hopper has worked so well that i have bought one for my son who has a BT4 Banshee and it too works flawlessly. We recently were involved in a 10 hour senario game. We used over over 3500 balls each without one ball jam or break in the hopper
As long as you use a good fully charged 9 volt battery i cant see you having any problems. If you want 15 balls a second buy a hopper that delivers 17. I think this is a excellent hopper for the price. It works just as well as a higher priced model .
10 out of 10

Hello. I just ordered this for my 98 custom. You commented that the size is a strength. From the photos, it does look a bit bulky. I have a red dot sight attached on top of the gun. Do you thing that this would prevent me from leaving it on? Thanks!
