Fast (18 BPS)
holds 200 Paintballs
Never turns off/ keeps feeding all the time
Well, i bought this w/o doing any research first. I am disappointed w/ it because it just keeps trying to force the paint balls into the gun even when you don't want them to. It's kind of like the VL Quantum, as it never stops churning the balls, and i feel like i have to turn it off at some points during a game.
This is an alright hopper for the $30 that it costs, but i would recommend going for the one w/ eyes if you want it to turn off between shots and such.
I was disappointed in this, as i am a woodsballer, and sometimes there is a wait before the game gets going or if you want to sneak up on someone, you're screwed, because the loader stays on after you turn it on. I am happy to say that I'm returning this tomorrow and getting an eggy 3, which also shoots faster than this.
KEY FACTS IF YOU ARE BUYING THIS HOPPER:
1.) doesn't break paint inside of it unless it's incredibly cheap or old
2.) feeds at a max of 18 BPS
4.) Takes 1 9V battery
5.) on/off button w/ LED low battery light
6.) continuously feeds- never turns off unless you turn it off
Basically that's it, so have fun.
I would recommend this hopper for beginners who want a fast hopper and who use Full Auto a lot, but for the more experienced player, i would not get this one, but maybe the version w/ eyes or an egg 3.
7 out of 10
