LOUD (due to constant agitation)
Small lid opening
I picked this hopper up at my local Sports Authority as a back up for around 30 bucks, and after using it, I can definantly say that it has earned its place in my gear bag. I had to switch to it for the first time one day when my prophecy needed repairs, and it performed well. Right off the bat, I noticed how loud the thing was. I mean this hopper whirrs like crazy. It was a little annoying at first, but I did get used to it. I would imagine that would be quite a disadvantage though if you were playing woodsball and were trying to flank a position or something, but for speedball, it didnt make that big of a difference. During the games, the hopper had a really consistent feed rate, and it never jammed, which was suprising to me. During one game however, I ended up laning and had to reload, which I had a hard time doing because of the small lid, and about half my pod ended up on the ground. After 3 cases of paint, I had only had 2 breaks, and no jams.
This hopper performs really well for the price, and is consistent and reliable.
