Review: I have a tippmann 98 custom pro with E-Grip and the grav hopper didn't do the job and couldn't handle the 15+bps so I looked around and decided to choose this over an eye-force because it has better feed rate (up to 23bps)[+]. It easily kept up with my walking on turbo and semi auto [+]. It was pretty quiet [+] and only fed when it needed to which was great [+]. With the lid, there's no risk of it flying open and you losing your balls (ha ha) [+], but you can't fill it all the way [-]. Also, it's really shiny which isn't good for woodsball, but an easy fix [-]. The Feed neck is very thick, and I don't believe it will break anytime soon [+], and it fits in the feed neck for my 98 Custom Pro great [+]. On the side of the hopper, there is a speed adjuster, but it doesn't do anything, so I don't know why its there [-]. The egg 3 looks pretty dumb on my 98 but, oh well. [-] Finally, I felt like I was stealing when I bought this for $59.99 [+].

::EDIT:: With about 2000 rounds through this hopper, I have cleaned it once, but haven't took it all apart yet, with unchanged batteries through over 2000 fed, this hopper, as do all hoppers, start to lose feed rate, last time I did a drop test, I only got a little over 17 bps fed.

::EDIT 2:: This hopper has finished its tour of duty as my main hopper for both my Dangerous Power G3 but remains on my Tippmann 98. (I got a prophecy for my G3) Anyway, good, reliable hopper. great for a new player. add batteries and go. Thats it.
Conclusion: Great hopper for the price, the eVLution series can still hang with the newer VLocity series and HALOs, but for a portion of the price, low profile keeps hopper shots at a minimum. 9 out of 10 because the goods definatly outweigh the bads and its a very good value.
