Review: Well, there's really not a lot you can say about this product, but I figure I can give it a try.

I use this on my pump, simply because it's small and holds enough paint for a couple games. I've yet to take a shot to this thing, though I'm sure when I do it will break.

I've witnessed my friend's have a neat little hole punched right through it, subsequently breaking the paint inside his hopper. Lovely.

I guess it reduced the weight of your gun, gives you a lower profile and so forth.

Whoever designed it made the feed neck too damned small so sometimes balls tend not to fall into the gun making for some disappointing dry fires when you've got a perfect shot on someone. Sigh.

The fact is, this thing is junk by itself, but the idea is the main selling point. Now if only a respectable company would make something like this.

I can only recommend to pump players.
Conclusion: Garbage, yet I still use it.

Check wevo paintball, they sell 50 and 100 round hoppers as well.

The 50 round hopper they sell didn't impress me, it is kind of flimsy and the lid didn't hold well. Someone fixed that by epoxying a pod locking lid to it, which should help.

The 100 round hopper is very sturdy and well built, and I generally prefer it. It's profile is very similar to the 50 round hopper, but is a lot more solid.
