Red face ok new hopper

Ok so after my post of my Triad and talkin about a hopper I picked up a Spyder Xtra for 60 bucks! And I've been using the gravity feed on it. I got the quantum but reviews say its to loud for game play so I havnt used it on the field and I can see it cuz it is loud. But I don't know if its just me but its always having gaps in the balls to where I gotta shake it about every 7 to 9 balls and it just gets annoying. Are there any silent e-hoppers out there. I was thinking about maybe gettin a Ion also. Wat would be a good hopper for that?

If you read the reviews why the devil did you still get the Quantum? Depending on your budget i'd spring for the Invert Too, lot of loader for $60 and it's not an always on like the Quantum.

Despite being electronic, the Quantum is known for slow feed rates, inconsistency and for jamming. In all honesty, you're probably no worse off with a good gravity loader than you are with the Quantum.

You aren't going to find any "silent" electronic loaders - the very fact that simple electronic loaders act to stir up the balls inside the loader to clear jams is going to create noise.

For that matter, any loader - gravity loaders included - is going to make some noise as you move around, simply because the balls will move around.

Certainly any loader with a sensor will reduce the noise, if only because it isn't stirring the balls around constantly, so that is a step in the right direction.

HALO style loaders - including the Invert Too that iliveforthis99 suggested - are relatively quiet; being belt driven possibly helps in that respect.

Another possibility is the Ricochet "Sniper" range of loaders, that were foam lined to help stop some of the noise. You might find it hard to find one of those though.
It's just like a battle zone, you got a bottle and you're on your own.
Gotta be a Scotch or a Kamikaze, none of those other weapons will faze me.

Hundred, hundred, hundred bottles on the wall, you wonder if you can drink them all.
Got to go home by 1am, the bottle wins the battle again.
