Products Used:
Marker Setup: Piranha EXT Pro G3 with 14'' pmi razzor barrel, 12v revolution hopper,evil smokestack,48ci/4500psi tank with shut off valve,customized grip and handle
Strengths: Helps with feed problems; little or no choping
Increases number of paintballs over the feed
Weaknesses: If paintballs are deformed they can get stuck in the smokestack
Review: I found that using the smokestack greatly furthered my ability to shoot faster since i've been using it. WIth just my revvy I was able to get about 8 to 14 bps but with the smokestack I was able to get about 10 to 14 bps. I discovered right off that I could not use very cheap paintballs because a lot of them were not very well rounded and they got stuck within the smokestack causing me to chop balls badly . However once I switched to using nothing but RPS all stars, el tigre,marballizers,polar ice and more recently pmi premiums I have not had any trouble since. This is good a product and will greatly enhance performance of any verticle feed gun as long as it is set up properly for your gun. Be sure to make sure you use the right size o-rings for your hopper and gun. Perhaps the biggest problem is that most hoppers seem to fit a little loosely within the smokestack. Just use some Professional Duct tape around the outside of the hopper and the smokestack, it worked for me.
Conclusion: This is a great product , Enhancing the feed system of your gun
Can be a pain to set it up right though
You must use good rounded paintballs

you cant get 16 bps with a revy. gravity fed loaders get 14 bps max. not being critical, im just saying this so people arent like 'o i can get 16 bps with a smokestack.' if you get a force fed loader like a evo 2 or a halo then you can get more.

painter911 is right, but im not so sure a evo2 is force fed (I might have just saw a evo 1)

Duh, paintballs will get stuck in it if they are deformed.
