Review: I wanted a hopper that was fast and easy to use. And the Vlocity Jr lives up to the expectations. It easily feeds my SLG UL with no problems. I haven't had one miss feed or break in the hopper since i bought it, and i bash it around in the woods and on the speedball course.

It was a decision between the Vlocity and the Vlocity Jr. I chose the Jr because i don't need to bother will all the fancy settings that the Vlocity has. Plus the Jr has a awesome wide mouth to pour paint into.

The biggest problem is battery life. It devours batteries! In the woods, i get an average 4 hours of battery life before the LED goes red (4 hours continuous use), and an additional 30mins after that it will go dead. No warning at all. Dead.

On the speedball field, however, i usually burn through 2-3 cases of paint before the LED goes red.
Conclusion: If you want a fast, low cost and light hopper the Jr is for you. It is perfect for speedball!

If you play scenarios: DO NOT GET THIS HOPPER! The batteries will die very quickly and you need a screwdriver to get into the battery compartment to get to change them.

I give it a 9 because the battery life is a hinderance to scenario players.
