Review: I recently picked up an eye-force because I am getting back into the sport. I had sold all my previous gear before college due to financial difficulties. That being said, the VL Eye-force revolution is a great loader, especially for paintballers on a tight budget. It is very robust, holds a lot of paint (average of about 220 balls), and feeds very quickly. This loader keeps up just fine on every gun I've tested it on, including an 08 ego, DM5, and my vibe. It will feed 17 bps on ramping without skipping a beat. It seems to be pretty good on battery life. I've run 2 cases so far without recharging (I use 9.6v rechargables).

For those of you looking at other loaders, I'll do a little comparison based on my past experiences. This is just a very crude chart ranking the hoppers I've used, starting at my least favorite.

Halo B (original)

VL Eye-force revolution

Viewloader VLocity
Empire Reloader B

If you are deciding between this loader and the VL Force revolution without eyes, I would definitely recommend shelling out the extra $10-$15 for the eye version. Without eyes, the hopper would continually run, making it an obnoxious battery chomper.
Conclusion: Great hopper, well built, very fast especially for the price. I play tournament ball and this hopper does just fine. Great job viewloader.
10 out of 10
