Review: This is a really cool invention that takes the hopper from on top of your marker and puts it to the side of your marker. For guys like me that suffer hopper hits more than any other area, this is a really nice product. It's produced by the best company in paintball with great customer service and technical support. And it will get you quite a bit of "praise" on the field. Most people won't know what it is, but once they see it they will be very interested!

There are some significant drawbacks to the unit.
1) Cost: It runs about $130-$175, you can probably get one for $75 used. BUT...you still need to buy a hopper to feed it.
2) Speed: There are numerous hoppers on the market today that can feed faster. For a mech marker, the warp will feed fast enough...but for really high end electronic markers, it might not.
3) It adds quite a bit of weight and makes the marker feel "bulky". It's not much more than a Reloader B with a 6*AA battery pack, but you'll notice the weight. And you can make modifications to your hopper to make it fit "tighter", but then you're pretty much either melting or drilling into your hopper...which requires some technical ability and tools.
4) Maintenance: It's not that a lot of maintenance will be required, but if you do have to work on it, it's not as simple as most hoppers so somebody with limited technical ability is going to either be frustrated or potentially break something.
5) Hose: The new hose is a pain. It's hard to cut and the balls want to get hung up in it. I finally got mine to work just fine, but it took some patience.
Conclusion: I could rate this anywhere from a 4 to a 9. I personally like it and use it on my Mag, but I don't like it so much that I woud buy another one and use it with other markers. There are some drawbacks to it, but it does what it's designed to do and I think it's a much better and cheaper option than a q-loader.
