Agitates with each shot, color choices, weight, low profile, customer service, looks.
Deflection, ORIGINAL necks
I have been using a 2k for about a year and I love it. Most people who complain about the ball counter or the beeping obviously didn't read their owners manual and it's pretty lame how they give this hopper lower scores and cite those as reasons. READ THE MANUAL. You can turn off the beeping and you can adjust how it counts. The ball counter is a nice guide but not really necessary, however I really like the timer. I have played some outlaw games where it has come in real handy. Even with the LCD I get around 2 cases (4000 rounds) or more off of a single 9volt which isn't too bad.
This hopper also has a small profile when you pop out of a bunker. From dead on it would be very hard to hit, and from the side it is slightly smaller that a revvy. The deflection "engineering" does work as advertised, it often does get a bounce if a shot comes in at an angle. Dead on from the side it's going to break, and dead on from the front it's going to roll right up into your mask.
I don't know exactly how fast it loads, somewhere around 13bps. I haven't outshot it on my cocker, and it kept up with a Spyder Flash LCD on semi, 3 shot, and 6 shot burst. We didn't try it on full auto.
My first shell was a burgundy one with the old neck and it snapped off after 3 months. After 5 minutes on the phone and 3 days later I had a new blue shell with O-rings, not a single problem since then. The customer service is no questions asked and top notch. I was on the field the next weekend so I can't complain.
All in all I would recommend this over a revvy, it probably is no HALO but if you have a low to mid level electro, or a low to high end semi I would recommend it. It also comes in more colors than you can get for a revvy which is honestly half the reason I got it. I like a little color in my game and I wish more companies would realize that black, clear, chrome, and smoke are not the only colors that should be available.
I am going with a 9, I would give it a much lower score because of my neck incident, but the customer service more than makes up for that shortcoming. If I thought it was capable of insane ROF like 18 to 20 bps I would have given it a 10. Hopefully they will come out with some kind of force fed model in the future. You get a lot of bang for your buck out of this hopper though.
9 out of 10
