Review: I have been running this hopper for about 6 months now and love it. The feed rate is amazing, its light, and the price isnít bad for what this hopper offers. The only problems Iíve had with it, is the shell and the batteries. The shell has already cracked around all of the screw holes. After owning other Viewloader hoppers in the past, Iíve learned that the screws have to be snug, not tight, but snug. And still the shell cracked on me. Iíve put my Halo through more hell than this hopper and it has less cracks than my VL jr. I thought this was a problem that Viewloader fixed, but I was wrong. The battery life on this hopper is horrible. I have to replace the batteries before every use. I even remove them after each use and they still get drained. I do wish it had some sort of a rip drive on it. That would be an awesome upgrade for it.

Conclusion: Great hopper at a great price. Just make sure you have a lot of batteries to spare or a good pair of rechargeables. You'll need them.
