Review: I bought this hopper so that I could keep up with my gun and it did great and still works well. I am currently using it on my Invert Mini and I have no complaints!

Good:

The hopper is faster than I thought it would be. I am currently using it on my Invert Mini and it keeps up well enough. When I first used it I used on my Triumph Ext from Tippmann. It never skips a ball for me. Occaisanlly it will jam but just give it a light shake and there you go! The idea of having "side mirrors" is really good because when your in the heat of a firefight and you want to see how much paint you have left in your hopper but you don't want to look away from your opponet, the "side mirrors" work well. The lid is clear and sometimes smudges but it is fairly clear and will never (unless you superman and screw up) open up on you. The speed is good... 15-17 balls per second. And to be honest with you... when you see an opponet are you really going to max that? I see people wasting like a whole hopper that goes 30bps just from a peak at an opponent. People! Paint is expensive! Conserve! Think about your wallet! And think about the person on the other end. Do you think they like 30 balls flying at them a second? I sure don't!

Bad:

Of course everything has its cons. This is no exception. The bads are actually very little. Sometimes the lid will jam and is hard to open sometimes and with all the pressure on you in the heat.. you can get really peeved. But a little elbow grease on the spring in the lid and it will open smoothly and still stay clamped shut during the game. Also the battery pack for me was hard to come out.. but hey! It doesn't come out during the game so think of that as a pro! Lastly, the feedneck. The feedneck is alittle on the thick side but it works dandy and won't snap during a game like other hoppers.
Conclusion: Over all, a decent buy. If you are a new player looking for an upgrade from a gravity fed hopper then this is definetly a good buy. I don't regret it. And am using it on a top notch tourney level marker! And if you are a seasoned player or a rookie or whatever skill level you are... It is a good buy. I like it. And just so you know... I put a case of paint through it in 24.335 seconds... Fast enough for me! And fast enough for you! I give it a 9 only because nothing is perfect... Not even Dye!
