Review: Well, I had my Halo B for the longest time, and with the frontman style of play, due to wear and tear, I had to replace a lot of parts, and became a very close friend of mine. It started to get expensive to maintain it, so, I decided to get a new one.

Strengths

The strengths are a definite improvement, I have been keeping a somewhat cynical eye on Dye for a bit, but this hopper really stood out before the Pinokio and the Prophecy for me. First off, three AA batterys to power it through 25 cases of paint is spectacular, the ability to strip it down in mere seconds instead of the hour it would take with the Halo B is also a welcome addition, and the fact that it breaks down into only 7 parts, that is besides the screw on top, makes it quick. Its durable as well, I remember the material from my Revvy, and that thing it still sitting in my room after so many shots in woodsball. The lack of eyes is very welcome, I am no longer limited to somewhat bright paint, if its black I can use it no problem, and the feeding system is incredibly fast.

Weaknesses

I have noticed that you should only turn it on, when its in the feedneck on your gun, right before the game, because the pressure stop system it has creates a lot of ball stack tension on the top after a bit, and makes me chop when it does. Its a minor thing, and nothing I will worry about after finding that out. My second trouble is the anti-jam trigger works only sometimes, but it rarely jams for me anyway.
Conclusion: If you don't mind using less battery's, quick break down, and tough hopper, I would recommend this product. I give it a 9 because of the anti-jam trigger issues, however there may be upgrades in the future to put a stick in its tires.

9 out of 10
