Paintball
Experience:

Similar
Products Used:
Ricochet 2k,(Constant and repeated problems like cracked shells, bad switches)
Old style Revy ( Fried boards, could easily be out shot)
Marker Setup: Matrix, Reloader, Aradus or Freak, 114 ci 3000 tank, Shocktech LPR
Strengths: Fill with balls, turn it on, FORGET about it.
Weaknesses: Nothing I could find or feel
Review: The first thing I need to say is that you can turn on this hopper at the beginning of the day and forget it for the rest. I shot over 3000 balls and have had no problems, issues or complaints. It was great to be able to start a game on not have to worry if the hopper was on, it was nice to hold the gun down with a half empty hopper an not hear the motor running like a Revy. I do not believe it ever activated when someone was shooting next to me, but who cares if it did, that is not a problem. I never out shot the hopper, it worked great. That day was the first day in a long time when I did not have a hopper problem or issues sometime during the day. Some have complained that the lid is hard to close, but once you get it closed it stays that way. The lid spring seems a bit strong and that might be their problem. Eating Wheaties will solve this problem. Edit: It has been six months and this one hopper has survived and worked very well, however I have finnaly gotten used to my Matrix and now I find myself out shooting this hopper occasionaly on long strings, but you know what, it doesn't really matter cause if five balls are already in the air, does that sixth one make a difference???, still a great hopper and very durable
Conclusion: Overall, I am very happy with this hopper so far. Hopefully it lasts, Trust me if it does not last a year or so, I will re-review and tell you the problems.

yes it does. the reloader is great for a hybrid blowback, but not on a matrix. you need a reloader b, mate

Not to criticize or anything, but: it only takes one ball to break, so that sixth ball could make a difference.

AGREED, but not about the balls in the air. with my cocker i can get someone out in one shot as long as i know i can hit them, self control man.
