FREAK
PE 88/4500
Smoke Halo-B
Strengths: Sent my Halo-A in for the upgrade and a smoke shell.
100%% worth it.
The guy below me is obviously retarded and a bit biased.
For one, this hopper will consitently load 22bps (filled a 140pod in 5 seconds) and there is no way to outshoot it with a semi-auto marker. This was made to keep up with Raceguns and GZ timmys.

-Sleek design
-Lighter than the original
-New shells are incredible
-Reliable forcefeed and anti-jam
-Spring loaded paddle for anti-break
-22bps
-Push button once to turn ON, tap button to check if ON... Hold button to turn OFF
-Quiet, MUCH quieter than the original.
-DURABLE!

I forgot to turn this on before a game and was easily able to turn it on while running for my bunker. Nerve racking, but I did it before I got there and was impressed with the new on/off setup.
Anyone having trouble with blowback need not worry about it with this hopper, it will counter any amount of air going up the feed neck so you'll get a reliable feed despite that.

NEVER worry about chopping paint, there's always a ball ready in the breach. If you get a break, check your paint match, I'll bet it broke in the barrel.
Weaknesses: It's a bit heavier than any other hopper I've used, but worth it. Still not outstandingly heavy.
The butt end of it has a higher profile than a Revvy, but the top sits lower.
Takes 6 AA batteries... Doesn't bother me, I use Rayovac Rechargables.
Doesn't hold much more than a Ricochet, maybe a little more than 180 balls tops. Same as a Ricochet (only 180 realistically speaking)
Feed neck usually needs to be sanded to fit in a VF body, I sanded the inside of a stock BOSS elbow and stuffed it in there to avoid defacing this beautiful shell. An adjustable elbow works too. An adjustable VF feed neck would be perfect for this loader.

A real PAIN to clean if a ball breaks in there, so be careful when loading your paint.
Can't feed on low batteries. use rechargables.

Conclusion: You want speed, looks, reliable feeding, and a status symbol, this is the hopper for you.

You want something slower, lighter, smaller, get a Turbo/X-Board revvy or the Ricochet 2k.. the LCD Ricochet is a waste of money.
