Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Similar
Products Used:
revolution
Marker Setup: Autoocker
Strengths: Looks nice, nice lcd readout they claim it is a good loader,
Went to the local pball shop dished out 100$ plus tax, took this home, slapped in a abttery then went to play a woods game,

Played 3 games the loader seemed ok, at best had to shake it a lot wouldnt keep up....

The 4th Game i went and slid into a bunker well the hopper tapped a tree.
That is where the hopper stayed.. IT JUST BROKE AND SNAPPED at the neck..

I had to use a 5 dollar viewloader off a rental gun for the rest of the day

Went to home depot that evening and got me a package of JB weld, glued it back together then spent the next morning sanding it back down so i could play the tourney the next day..
The hopper worked ok that day aslo but still had to shake it a lot..
If you are going to buy this make your 2nd stop after the paintball shop to Home Depot and get wither PC-7 or JB weld
Weaknesses: 1.The plastic is cheep
2. you have to sand it to fit some markers...
3 The neck snapped of mine when i slid into a bunker
4 loud
5 kill the display we dont need it
6 mine came with only 1 of the paddles tipped with the black stuff the other 3 were showing wire and were sharp.
Conclusion: ? where do I start
buy it if u want to
also buy JB weld or pc 7 epoxy you will need it unless you do not play while running or woods play if u sit on a speedball field hiding behind baloons and dumping paint it may be ok for you ...
You can outshoot this thing ez as it feeds unreliably...
Mine lasted maybe 3 hours til i slid into a bunker then it snapped off at the elbow... not good for a 100$ price tag

PAINTBALL GEAR SHOULD BE MADE BY PAINTBALL PLAYERS
NOT AUTOCAD ALONE>>>

When you mke a product GO TO THE FIELD AND HAND IT OUT TO A FEW PEOPLE LET THEM PUT IT TO THE TEST...

This loader is a failure.. overpriced... loud..... display is a waste.... does not keep up as claimed.... and its made very cheep.. the neck snaps right off with little effort which can be done during a simple slide into a bunker...

if your neck snapped just email them and they will give you a new one..also if you hate the LCD so much why not just buy the AK, and what kind of cocker are you shooting that is outshooting 12bps so often? maybe you just forgot to turn it on...

i dont like these hoppers. they dont even deflect the paintballs. also, they are really rough when they load the paintballs so a ball breaking in the hopper is common.

I totally agree with your review

this is a good hopper. the lcd screen works and u can set the ball counter to different modes so it counts right. but if u dont wnat the lcd screen get the AK. And at almost any website u can get it for 70$ easily. Maybe next time u should actually look at more than one place to buy it.

just a note...most hoppers will break if you smack them into a tree.

I think that this guy did not treat this Hopper very well on the field. It cant handle the feed neck being sanded and then the force of ramming it in to a bunker , hardly any Hoppers can handle that!The black piece on the tips of the green feed arms don't matter it doesn't make a difference to the paintballs inside!! (paintballs cant break that easy!!!!!!)
