Review: Bought an egg 3 because it was the cheapest electro hopper that could keep up with my marker. No reason to spend 30 to 100 bucks more for one of the faster hoppers if your marker can't make it past 23bps.

The eyes do what they're supposed to (only feeds when you need the balls).

The lid is touch and go. . . it has strong springs and detents to hold it open or closed tightly, but if you don't snap it into place correctly it's liable to clamp shut as you reach for a pod. A speed loader would fix that. It's also positioned on the back on the egg, rather than the top, so it's harder to load from the side of the marker without dumping half your load on the ground.

The looks are in the eye of the beholder, but I think it looks pretty good (get the black one). Because the feed tube is so far to the front, however, it will spin like a top if you don't have a good clamping feedneck.
Conclusion: Great hopper, fastest in the price range; I recommend buying one if you or your marker can't shoot faster than 23bps.
