Products Used:
VL 200- Other similar gravity fed hoppers
Marker Setup: Totally upgrading Spyder Sonix Pro
- Electronic trigger
- 16 inch spyder sniper quiet barrel
- custom drop forward to fit my shoulder
- Maddog low-rise feedneck
- ACS Delrin Bolt

What I am getting for it:
- LP Setup
- remote coil
- new hopper, don't know what yet
- internals (bolt, springs, etc.)
Strengths: Speed for a gravity hopper
It's looks
Sturdily built
Weaknesses: Jams a lot, see review.
Review: I got this from eBay for a total of $12, so no matter what It did, I wouldn't waste that much money.

I was attracted to the ad, which was claiming 11.6 BPS. For a gravity hopper, that would be phenomenal, but, it doesn't quite get that fast.

First of all, the hopper does feed adequately, about 9-10 BPS. For a gravity hopper to do that is really good, but not what I expected. For my use (hardcore woods playing), this was ideal because it gave me some speed, with no batteries or noise, a big plus. However, the hopper does jam frequently. It is still better than all other gravity hoppers, but has its share of jams. But if you run, slide, or do whatever, that jam will clear very soon. That wasn't a very big problem for me. Also, the hopper's construction was good. It is made pretty well, very hard black plastic with a 1-point-seal lid, as opposed to the advertised 3. In my hopper, and this may just be a isolated defect, there is a large gap inside the hopper, splitting the two feed ramps down the middle (about 1/4 inch). It didn't affect the performance, but I am wondering if all of the hoppers are like that.
Conclusion: Overall, you can't go wrong with this hopper. If you are just a woodsball player, this would be ideal. However, I would not try it with any markers that shoot over 15 BPS, obviously.

A very good hopper for the price.
