Review: Alright, this hopper, is, well different. First of all, it is pretty big. When you look at the side of the hopper, it looks gargantuan. It also sits relatively high compared to the other loaders like torque, or a halo. But, when you look down the gun it doesn't look too wide, but it is still kinda high. The plastic shell is pretty tough, because I have been hit with a full hopper, and no paint was broken (RPS Premium). The eyes are great for guns like the Vibe, and other cheap guns that require an electronic loader. The reason I say this is because of the eyes. The Eyes are great because, when they detect a ball in the feed neck it stops. This means that there is no torque on the ball stack besides the force of gravity. That will give you a better life on your detents. The eyes can also be a problem, for some, not me in particular, but once you are out of balls the blade just keeps on spinning, and it is LOUD. But once you put balls back in, it stops. Another problem that can occur when using thin shelled paint, is when you popcorn a ball. Since the blade keeps on spinning, if a ball gets in there at the wrong time, you got some splattered paint, but that is pretty rare.The weight of this hopper, isn't bad, but it definitely is not good. It doesn't bother me, becuase I am RIPPED! (not really) but it won't bother you either. The lid is pretty standard, smaller than a velocity, but bigger than a torque (not a loudmouth). This Loader is pretty fast. at 20-23 bps, it will keep up with almost any gun, besides a SL8r, but I don't think that anyone with that kind of money would be interested in a loader less than $100. Think of it like this, you won't be ramping over 20 bps in the woods, because that would be pretty stupid, and the PSP bps limit is around10-12 bps depending how good you are, and I doubt anyone can shoot over 20 bps on semi auto. It has the perfect speed, for any player, but for "experimental paintball" get a torque, if your gonna shoot over 25 bps
Conclusion: Even though there are some weaknesses to this loader, it is great, nonetheless. You get the speed that you need, with a price that will fit your budget. The eye problems with the popcorn is not to bad, just don't get extremely brittle paint. Great hopper for a great price what else do you need>
