Review: Well it pushes all the balls away from the feed neck, gets jammed up when you try and fill it right up, keeps going even after your empty and it gets really annoying.
Im not sure what that other guy was talking about 20 BPS that is bull **** there is no way possibly way this hopper can go over 10 BPS at most, this in no way compares to a warp feed ( 25+BPS).
If you want something that is cheap and will put the balls in your marker (eventually) and just keeps on running even though your out of paintballs, then buy all means buy this hopper, but personally i would recommend a ricochet AK or an Empire Reloader, just anything would most likely be better then this.

Viewloader really found out how to attract people with this, my friend noticed this while cruising around wal mart and immediatly wanted to buy it, luckily i was able to talk him out of it and spare him the agony of buying a POS.
plus another bad factor is that its clear, so if you ever run out of paint and try and pull the surrender rule on someone, all they have to do is turn around and see you have no paint and lit you up....
Poor quality hopper, that can't be filled to capacity (150balls) and the impellor just keeps on spinning which gets extremly agitating after a very short amount of time.

Do yourself a favor and spring up the $50 for a good loader like an empire reloader or a revvy or save up for an egg2...this is about as low end as hoppers go without going back to vl200.

not everything is completely bad about this, it does speed up your feed rate slightly, and it wouldnt be all to bad if you don't have a fast trigger finger and don't mind the noise, other then that i highly suggest to stay away from it
Conclusion: dont buy this, my VL 200 is better, if your looking at buying this dont, spring up another $15 and get a reloader or something else. stay away from this hopper, unless you find some reason to purchase it..but i warned you

The thng can only be filled up to 140, and when it keeps just spinning heres a simple answer to that= turn the hopper off.

Then you have to turn the hopper back on when you get in a shootout with people.

yeah thats about the stupidest thing I've ever heard, if you turn it off you'll have to turn it on every time you want it to load.

get a quality empire hopper, this thing blows, gravity hoppers suck even more.

no i disagree. if it is true that this hopper can only feed 8 bps then gravity feed is better because:
1. My gravity fed can fire 8 bps without chopping
2. This piece of crap takes up batteries and costs like three times as much money
3. It is unreliable and can't hold as many balls

Besides not all of us have enough money for a empire hopper. If i could get one i would.
