Good speed. Force fed. Holds 200 balls. Good price. Not much weight difference over a Revy. If you actually get a Evo II that works it's great.
I have had the worst experience with this hopper. In the last month 3 of these have given me problems.
1. My Girlfriend's Evo II the lid broke off. It snapped right where the lid screw goes through it. BRASS EAGLE "We've never heard of this happening go buy a new lid
2. My first Evo II had it for two weekends. The second weekend I was playing and as I slid it to the 50 the hopper stopped feeding. I changed the batteries 3 times....the light on the Evo II would blink and that's it. It wouldn't feed or anything. Took it apart cleaned it all...nothing. Again I call up BE they told me that my board fried and that I need to send it in for warranty work which will take 4 weeks. BRASS EAGLE "don't bang the hopper around too much it's delicate." UHHHH this is paintball not ballet. Of course I'm going to bang it around.
3. My 2nd Evo II. Since it will take me 4 weeks to get the other one I bought a second one. Same thing just happend again this weekend. The hopper just stopped working. Same problem as the first.
Bad luck...yea I guess but two in a row? We all know the BE took over VL and since then revy shells break ( I went though 4 pairs). BE is just not making any quality products in my opinion. Yea cheap but then at least they could be more supportive of their own products.
There are basically two force fed hoppers out there in the same category, Evo II and the HALO B. So if you don't like the HALO B then get this. I kow alot of people who do well with the Evo II.....I'm basically stuck with it. I don't like the HALO B. But I haven't had an Evo II that works for me yet. BRASS EAGLE customer service is terrible. They shouldn't even call it service. An answering machien has more careing and personality than the people who answer the phone.
KEEP your reciepts BE will not do anything at all unless you have a receipt.....I have no idea why....not like you stole it from their warehouse or some thing. If you have their product then you must have bought it.......

First of all, your problem is with BE not the eggo2. Since this is a product review and not a costomer service review, you shpould ease up on the eggo2. Have you ever heard of lemon cars? If you bought 2 new honda civics and they both broke down after the first time you drove them, would you say that civics are bad cars? NO! The fact is that there are so many good civics out there that says otherwise. My point is that just because you have had bad experiences with your eggo2's, doesn't make them crappy hoppers. My brothers and I all have eggo2 hoppers and can't get enough of them. Also all of my friends made the switch to eggo2's and they have never had a problem yet. I have even dropped mine down a hill and had it hit rocks at the bottom, only to go pick it up and play again. It still worked, and it only had one scratch on it. If you want one get it off ebay.
His complaints are legitimate. I have noticed over my years of playing paintball the very low quality customer service offered up by paintball companies. He *DID* review the eggo2, citing his problems with the hopper not working and lid snapping off. His complaints with BE are valid as well considering that when you purchase a product you expect customer service to come with it. If I bought 2 crappy civics that broke down I'd expect Honda to take care of me IMMEDIATELY, and as a paying customer I expect no less of BE. Ciao
umm u said uve been playing for 1 year and you went through 4 shells and 2 eggs yes paintball is a lot of bouncing around but it does not inlucde abusing your equipment or hitting it with a baseball bat or something of the sort
