Review: I saw this hopper at Meijer on close out at a redicoulously low price. So I bought it for a backup for my son and I.. I gave it a try this weekend, and I must say that I was pretty impressed at how fast and reliably it feeds. It kept up with my Fusion just great. It never jammed, and it had a good capacity. It also seems to be make out of very durable material. Unlike the TSA which has the sound activation, the VF Revolution Force Hopper runs all the time. It runs very loudly. It is certainly louder than my TSA or my son's Egg. It is even as loud or louder than the Extreme Rage. I never thought that the noise would be a real issue, until one of our players told me that my hopper gave away my position! It was early in the game and not much shooting was going on. Reloading on the field was O.K., but the angle of the hopper's mouth is a little weird and the lid is very hard to close. You must slap it pretty hard. Again this is much different than my TSA. The hopper sets up very high! It is probably 3 inches taller than my TSA. I took a couple hits to the hopper at this outing.
Another picky complaint is the way you need replace the battery. You must remove three screws pop open the hopper, put in the battery, and then almost hold the hopper upside down to get the thing back together while keeping the battery in place. Good thing it only takes one battery.
Conclusion: If you are looking for fast feed rates at a lower price this is a very good hopper. Among the entry level hoppers I would consider this one of the best. Some of it comes down to personal preference. But if you want to spend less than $50, you can't go wrong buying this one.
