Review: Anyone who really takes a negative position on this hopper isn't paying attention. It is a solid offering from Kingman and deserves to be taken seriously. I used this on a Dye DM5 for about a month before I gave in and got the Rotor, largely because of the look. I used the FASTA in woodsball and speedball and it handled all I gave it. The feed was fast and smooth, and the pressure tab used in place of eyes or sound sensors meant I had reliable feeding no matter what environment I was in or what paint I used. The Rotor does do slightly better in a drop test, but seriously....anyone shooting through a hopper that fast outside of competition is most likely just wasting paint.

I like ended up with the Rotor for the speed difference (I'm a marketing sucker) and cool appearance. But while the FASTA really left something to be desired, I would say the FASTA is the better value as far as cost-to-performance goes.
Conclusion: Good for the price. Sold performance, slightly spaceship design, but if you can deal with the torpedo shape it's a good value.
