Products Used:
VL 200 gravity hopper. It doesn't compare, I mean, a gravity feed, versus an electro? Duh.
Marker Setup: Stock Spyder Rodeo, w/ Halo T.S.A. led Frontman hopper.
Strengths: Fast, very fast, I like the sound activation, and the power push button
Weaknesses: I have a couple, but you can read em in the review.
Review: I just want to say thanks to all the guys who have written reviews on this hopper. Because of what you have said about this hopper, I believe that I have finally found a hopper to invest in. I've been looking up info on hoppers for a while now, like the revs, and the Evo 2, and a bunch of others. I'm just glad that I found a website like this to do research on before I spend money. Thanks guys!


I will finish this review when I get my Halo T.S.A..

UPDATE>>>>>>

I got my Halo for Christmas, which was a surprise in the first place because I was going to buy it myself. Anyway, I got out to the field and set my gun up, the hopper was doing a great job so far keeping up with the gun. But it showed it's true might out on the playing field. I took it out and shot my entire hopper of paint in less than 5 minutes, (which is fast for me, because I like to save paint) but I was getting good shots and taking them. It kept up with my gun every step of the way, and took a nasty hit to the side during one game, but just kept on punching. After I was done playing, one of my team-mates asked to use my Halo on his Icon Electric, he took it out and set his gun to full auto, I didn't get to see that game, but from the way he was talking when he got back, it did just fine. He said, and I quote "I'm keeping this thing!!"

Weaknesses, (and a fix for one of em!)
The slick plastic. When I put it in my adapter it was easy to bump it and move it from side to side. SO!! Me, in my infinite wisdom (yeah right!) put some medical tape on the feed neck, it kept the hopper from moving for the rest of the day, and I was in my happy place. (Other tapes will work too, I guess, unless it's scotch tape.)

The lid. I'm not sure if will hold up for very long, it looks a little flimsy. But it's held up for me so far.

If I have any other problems with this hopper, I'll update this review to include them.
Conclusion: I recommend this hopper to anyone, unless they have a wicked fast gun, then I would suggest a Halo B. But this is a good hopper for people with fast semi autos like me, it's performed well so far, I expect it to continue to serve for a good while.
