Review: Well i would like to start off by saying that in all my years of paintballing, i truly believe that this is the best option out there for cyclone users. Here is why:

--------------
Strengths:
--------------

Clear line of sight:

This hopper is unlike any i have ever used, in that is does offer a clear line of sight down the top of the marker. Now dont get me wrong, you will still have the hopper in your "sightline" but it will not get in the way of any scopes. i know that does sound like an oxymoron, but try to bear with me. Basically, you will have the hopper on your gun's "horizon" but it will not protrude into the sight line of your gun (i.e. the top of the gun). This is a great improvement over other hoppers such as the Ricochet, which does protrude into your line of sight and would thus prevent you from mounting a long scope. The X7 allows for the mounting of a long scope.
+3

Low Profile:

This is a very low hopper. Much lower than the Ricochet, or the stock. The only thing that would be lower than this, is the tac cap, but even then it could only hold 20 rounds. The 30 round Tac-cap, i believe, is higher than this hopper (but not by much). This feature blew me away.
+3

Durable:

Been using it for awhile, and have even taken it COMPLETELY apart. Still no problems to date in terms of its construction. No cracks, creaks, or signs of wear.
+2

Soft Plastic:

A big gripe of mine, and others, with the Ricochet hopper was that it was made of a hard, polycarbonate plastic. Much harder when compared to the stock A5 hopper. this thus translated into more noise while running. The X7 hopper is made of the same plastic as the stock A5 hopper, and as such, is much quieter than the Ricochet while moving.

Other points of interest:

its cheap!!!

Conclusion: Great hopper. Perfect for anyone with the Cyclone feed. Some people complain about the paint staying up near the front of the hopper, but again, that only happens shooting at a steep downhill angle. just shake it up, and you are good to go. I highly recommend this item!

To get quiet even further by some extremely thin cut the sheet in half with one side slight larger and glue or....i used double sided tap and tightly..make sure there are no folds..... stick it on....works like a charm and doesn't reduce hopper size

so long as your gun takes a cyclone hopper, this hopper will fit and kick ass.
