Review: Okay so your probably wondering why I got this hopper if I'm using a 98 custom with sniper barrel. Well I got incredibly sick of lining up my shot and having my gravity hopper pull some crap where the ball didn't feed. So I went looking around some stores and found this for 55 dollars. I read a couple of reviews (there weren't many) and decided to go for it. I have to say that I am very pleased with everything except for the few key weaknesses mentioned above. You can't beat this thing for 55 bucks and 22 bps. The feed system is very well put together and includes an anti jam system that works great and has never failed me. Also many of the popular electric hoppers like the Halo B and the Evo 3 kind of skimp on the amount that they can hold. Well this one gives you all and more with a capacity of up to 240. While this is all well and good now it is time for some of the bad. The hopper has very shiny plastic that makes the player stand out. Here's my scenario, I'm crawling through the woods with a ghillie and the one thing that everyone said that they saw was my hopper. So either spray paint it another color or just try and find a camo one. The lid is also a very hard plastic and not very bendable like the traditional gravity feed hoppers. So my suggestion is that when it comes off just replace it with one from a gravity feed it only takes about a minute. Also battery life is pretty good, it lasted about five days of playing on two 9 volts. Lastly many people find its design to be a turn off because it looks so bulky. But it really isn't when you actually look at the dimensions compared to something like a Halo B.
Conclusion: Excellent electric hopper with a great feed system, good battery life, and capacity. If looks really bother you that much then look elsewhere but your missing out on a great deal. I'm only giving it a nine because of the lid and how easy it breaks.
