Review: First off, I would like to say that my previous review was cr*p due to the time I wrote it I had no paintball experience like 4 years ago. Now I can give an unbiased review to help you, the reader, to determine if this hopper if best for you and to give you the most accurate information from an experienced player.

Looks: The hopper looks almost like a bullet with its sleek black outer shell. Constructed of very durable material, a little stronger than plastic, you will not worry about shell cracks. Nice battery compatment in the back and is secure.

Size: Sitting 5 inches starting from the base of the feedneck, the hopper is at a nice height, however I am not impressed with the 6 inch length from behind the feedneck and I will tell you why. Depending on the gun and its lengh behind the feedneck clamp, this hopper might extend further than the gun, causing a weird feeling with a center of weight near the back of the gun. Makes the gun feel heavy. Other than that, the hopper is extremely light.

Sound: Beware, this hopper is loud. I will tell you how this hopper works for those who do not. In the feedneck, the part which attaches to the marker, there is a flap inside which is a sensor and reacts when bent. Every time a paintball drops, it moves the flexible sensor strip and it tells the hopper a paintball has dropped, move the rotor. The motor sound is pretty loud and there is a powerful force on the paint. No brittle paint should be used in this hopper.

Lid: Must say this is a pretty durable lid, but like all lids, they break. Actually in my case the spring that pushes it up broke. I dont think there is a speed feed for this gun though but it is a decend lid that people can live with.

Capacity: Talk about a lot of paint. Like 250 rounds can be held in this hopper. It is built like a tank. Won't have to fill much because if you use this hopper your gun isnt that fast anyway.

Speed: The most important thing to any paintballer is the speed of the hopper to the gun. It says 13+ but will reduce when battery use high. I modded my hopper and I will not get into the details but will sum it up. There is a 9v and a 18v version of this hopper. Big deal. They both use the same shell and everything one just uses one more 9v battery. The motor and board is similar, only there is only one 9v batter terminal connected. With my dad's assistance we attached a relay switch running to the board and wired to another additional 9v battery. Actually 18v is running to the motor and is going about 20 bps. the 13 bps with 9v is still good for spyders mechanical and electronic. Can keep up with all ramp modes but on semi it might not cut it if you rip on your gun real fast. I do not recommend if you are a paint hog and have really fast fingers

Durability: Like I said, its built like a tank. My feedneck actually cracked when I dropped my gun which was a bummer beacause it was useless. wish the feedneck was more durable but be gentile with it, dont punch the feedneck wen on a gun and stuff u know. Dont drop it when on the gun. Can take shots to the shell with no marks.

Overall: Great hopper for the beginner in mind! Go out and buy it if you got the money!
Conclusion: Great hopper. Good value. I would recommend a faster hopper for higher end guns or those who shoot faster. Other great hoppers that are faster: Halo B, Torque Loudmouth
