Period of
Product Use:
3 months
1 year
Products Used:
stock hopper
Marker Setup: Tippmann A5 with E-Grip, 14 inch J & J Ceramic Barrel, Squishy Paddles, low profile hopper
Strengths: Thinner than the stock hopper, holds alot of paint.
Weaknesses: It is a hopper, what could possibly be WEAK about it?
Review: The problem I had before installing the low profile:
I didn't really have a big problem with getting shot in the hopper, but I DID get shot in the hopper a few times. The stock hopper looks kinda clunky and kinda reminds you that your paintball marker is NOT a gun, makes the marker look like more of a toy.

Buying experience and installation:
I only spent $7 on Amazon for this thing. It's rare that you can buy something under $10 when it comes to paintball stuff. The installation is simple, just twist the old hopper and pull it off then stick the new Low Profile hopper in there. It's cheap and easy to install.

I haven't been shot in the hopper since I bought the low profile. One of the essential parts of your game should be being a small target. The low profile allows you to become a smaller target because it is thinner.

Similar Products:
There is also the Richochet Hopper, which is another solution you can choose from. The Richochet has many angles and sides which help deflect paintballs and is said to reduce the likelyhood of a paintball breaking when it hits your hopper. The reason why I chose the Low Profile over that hopper was because the Richochet is very bulky compared to the Low Profile. If you have the Low Profile you're not as likely to get shot in the hopper in the first place because it sits so low and close to the hopper; therefor there is no need for multiple angles and sides on the low profile hopper to reduce breaks because it's not getting hit at all anyway.
Conclusion: The buying experience is cheap, installation is simple, and the problem I had was remedied.
It is not a MUST have, but it is nice to have. One of those things where it's so cheap you might as well just get it because the cost won't hurt you much. It makes you a smaller target for your opponents to shoot at, and your marker will be more visually appealing. If you're thinking about getting it just get it. It's cheap and at times can be the reason as to why you're still in the game.
10 out of 10
