Products Used:
Normal A-5 Hopper, and 98 Hopper
Marker Setup: Tippmann 98 with 16 inch smart parts barrel
double trigger
folding stock

A-5 with X-7 low profile hopper
Strengths: Doesn't get in the way as much
You can see more
Slick looks
Weaknesses: Nothing major, makes racket when running like all other hoppers do.
Review: What is there to say? Its the same hopper thats on the X-7, same cyclone feeder, so it fits both the A-5 and X-7 perfectly.
Lets you see more over your hopper compared to the old bulky standard A-5 hopper.
Less likely to be shot on the hopper.

The first time I played with it, I was just playing outlaw ball in some woods with two other friends, it was a three way battle. (1 vs 1 vs 1) The first round my friends kept hidding behind stuff, only peaking out, they of course were just shooting really fast as they could in my general direction while I was being conservative. I shot both of them in the face that round. So the next round, they decided to get closer, but at the same time, just shoot over the their bunker without looking. Again they couldn't hit me, so I shot both of them in their big bulky A-5 hoppers. We played about 5 rounds till they decided to give up cause I won every round. I never got hit at all that day. (this was their first time playing of course, and one of them was borrowing my spare gun, even though I don't really have that much more experience over them unless you count lazer tag when I was a young lad)
Conclusion: The final conclusion is, big heads and hoppers make excellent targets, so always stay low and play smart.
10 out of 10
