Experience:

Similar
Products Used:
Reloader B-Basically the same thing but harder to program
VLocity-Just as fast, maybe faster, WAY LIGHTER, but EATS batteries!
Halo B-Good all around hopper and inexpensive now. Picky with paint shell color
Marker Setup: (((NXT))) Shocker
Freak
Vlocity Loader w/Gangstar chip
DXS 68ci/4500psi
Phat mini drop
Hybrid push button ASA
Strengths: NEVER a misfire or broken ball because of the hopper. FAST!!
Weaknesses: Heavy with AA's. Ball capacity little bit low.
Review: The feedneck is huge. For some reason, I still have the stock feedneck on my NXT and it will only go in with a lot of force. It is also a positive because I believe it is stronger than the Vlocity's feedneck.

I really like the magnetic lid compared to the Vlocity snap lid, but either will accept a speed feed if that is what you want.

The board is a little easier to set than a Reloader B. The light color and flashes tell you everything. The manual is easy to understand. If you can't understand it, then you need to read it again.

The battery life on this hopper is very good. I have put over 5 cases through the current batteries and have not noticed any performance drop. My Vlocity lasts about 3 cases. But, with the extended battery life comes the price of weight. It has 6 AA batteries in it which adds unwanted weight that can totally throw off the balance of your marker.

You can set the sound activation to match your marker's report, motor speed, etc. Everything you need and then some.

It is exactly the same size as the Reloader B and Halo so there are a bunch of shells you can use.

There is no way to drop test this hopper aside from firing your marker right next to it until empty, but that is just stupid. The real test of speed is on the marker with eyes off.

We tested 3 full hoppers each on three different markers: Shocker NXT, Ego 6 w/Virtue, DP Fusion. All eyes were turned off. Shocker board set to max rebound, Virtue to react, Fusion to 25bps Full Auto. The B2 never missed a beat on any! No chops, no mess, noting but crazy fast ropes of paint. All of the markers were shooting well over 20bps.

I don't know if it is any faster or better than the Reloader B, but it is easier to setup.
Conclusion: If you need or want a new hopper, I think there is not a better stock one out there. But, it is a little heavy, so -1 for that.
