Sound Activation Tilt Sensing - the agitator always pulls the balls up towards the feed hole. If you tilt it the right it spins counter-clockwise. If you tilt to the left it spins clockwise. Low frontal profile with 210+ ball capacity
The Odyssey HALO TSA LED Backman is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Fast, always working, reliable, magnet closure system
Stickers fall off, still havent figured out how to turn it back on...
this hopper's a very good hopper. keeps up with my full auto setting at 13 bps. looks great, i have it in clear. the only problems ive had with it so far are that the stickers start to fall off on the sides only because its curved, but who needs stickers? mainly, my worst problem is that i still havent been able to figure out how to turn the thing back on... its really not a big deal though as i pull out the 9 volts whenever its not in use. other than that, its a great hopper, i cannot stress this enough. its very fast, quieter than my gun, always works due to the sound activation, is reliable, and i absolutely love the magnet closure system. if i want to make sure its still on and working, slightly, SLIGHTLY, slamming the lid will usually cause enough noise to spin the spinner dooey thingy.
remember to say if this was helpful to you or not. thanks.
Get it, but if you got 6 bucks more, get the lcd version, im sure people can figure out how to turn that one off and it should have more options. but this is definately a great hopper. 9 because of slight flaws.

Just aboyut everything
I got this hopper a few days ago, used, and it works fine. I took it out to the local Paintball field and it was awsome. No matter how fast I shot, the hopper kept up. The only time I dry fired was when I forgot to put it on... The amount of paint it holds is great for both woodsball and Hyper/Airball ( The field is mixed ). During woodsball, all the other people were starting to run low on paint, but I had ablout 1/4 of the hopper still full. And on Hyper/Airball, no matter how fast I shot, this hopper kept up. Some people say that is bulky, but it isn't that bad. No one hit the hopper, or me.
I bought this hopper used. Man, I could look at it and know that is had to be droped at least 5 times. It was scrated and looked kinda old. But when I started to play, it was just as good as my firends new one, if not better. There was no sign of anything worng.
I also put old batteries that were used alot. I was sceptical about it, but the hopper was worrking fine. That means even with low power, this thing works. Every time I fired, it spun just fine.
Overall, I love this hopper. It runs great and holds alot of paint. For thoes of you who do not like the size, get the frontmant. If you dont think it holds enough paint, get a pod.

I've owned this hopper for almost 3 months now and it has never let me down. It's very reliable. It feeds up to 15 bps if memory serves me right. What's really great is that it is sound activated. So that whenever you shoot it feeds. Another studly feature is that it is tilt sensitive. So if you have your gun tilted to shoot around the right side of the bunker, it will spin one direction. And if you have your gun tilted the other way shooting around the left side of the bunker, it will spin the other way, quite ingenious actually. Some people complain about her size, but it's only longer than most hoppers because it holds 210+balls. So unless you're getting blasted from the side, it's not gonna make that much of a difference.
Overall this is just a studly hopper, it feeds fast, nice ball capacity, and it's priced very cheap, around 60-70$. So if you have a gun under 15 bps, you should definitely invest in this hopper. She won't let you down.

-VERY reliable(will explain)
-Holds alot of paint
Batteries are a little difficult to get in and out
Now i use an ironman trix and sometimes my empire reloader reloader goes out on me so i needed a cheap back up hopper so i decided to go with this thing. And i was very impressed. It loaded faster then a rev w/ x board and it held ALOT of paint so i could shoot forever. And it is very reliable so far ive dropped it in a creek 3 times and dropped it on concret 4 and its still working good as new although it has a few scuffs. I would tell anyone to buy it if they wanted it very reliable and it feeds pritty fast to.
Great hopper for any gun from a cocker to a timmy. fast, reliable, and all around and good hopper.

I must say i love this thing. I am not capable of shooting 15 BPS so i will never out shoot it. It also holds so much paint. I go thru a lot in a game, so that feature is nice. It isnt so big that it cuts down your view of the feild either. I also figured out that to turn it on, push the button and there is a lil green light. To turn it off, hold the button in until the light turns orange/red. I have the diablo version so it might not work on the odyssey version, but as far as i know they are identical. I have dropped this thing a few times in the short period i have had it, but it hasnt broken yet. One heads up though, I had to shim it with a small rubber band because it did not fit tight without the band.
EDIT: i used this with my promaster on 15 BPS capped ramping. Not too much of an issue to keep up. i did chop a few because it couldnt keep up, but i was shooting constantly for a long time.
I absolutely think this is one of the best hoppers out there for those of us who cant afford a really high end hopper like a Halo B or an Empire Reloader B. If you cant shoot 20-30 BPS, get this thing. I love it. The only reason it gets a 8 is the whole rubber band to fit thing. Kind of a pain.

ghetto 7 board
LP Crossfire 68/4500 tank
Holds lots of paintballs
Sound activation works well
I used use a spyder aggressor xt so I had a VL 200. For Christmas I got a JT Protium and needed an electronic hopper. I decided to get this one since I had read a bunch of other hoppers in this price range having problems. This hopper works great for my protium. It feeds at a good speed and I haven't had many problems since the first day. The feed neck is kind of small so I have to tape it. And the problem on the first day was the batteries fault anyways. (one of the batteries exploded and got acid everywhere.) That was easily solved with a change of batteries. And it has great battery life too. In about 2,000 shots it hasn't needed a single battery change, other than the first 2, because the exploding battery ruined both itself, and the other battery. And that happened when I was checking if it came on, so I didn't fire any shots through it.
Edit: About a week after I wrote this review, the speed it fed started going way down. I changed the batteries several times, but it still fed very slowly. The other day, it stopped spinning the agitator all together. I called odyseey, and they said that they will replace it for free. They had good customer service, but i'm still mad that the motor burned out after only about 3000 shots.
It's a good hopper. go out and get it for about 50 bucks. ALTHOUGH IT MIGHT BREAK

Cant keep up with my ion or maybe its just me.....
I love this thing! it works great and its got a loooonnggg battery life. but its a wide feedneck so i had to sand it down to fit my feedneck on my ion. ive used this ever since i got my ion becuse the gravity fed wouldnt feed fast enough. the only thing i wish it had was a adjustible speed beecuase it sometimes doesnt feed fast enough.
Over all i love this thing nad i would reccomend this to anyone who wnats a new hopper. great if u do speedball or woodsball and u dont want to shoot out a case a paint in a few games. 10 out of 10

Not a battery hog
the shell is tough
Sometimes it doesnt hear the gun fire
This loader is awesome. It wont jam up any paint and the tilt sensors make it so even when leaning around a bunker your still loading paint into the gun. Although if you have an autococker or any other gun thats real quiet the halo doesnt always hear your gun fire and wont spin, it works the other way around too sometimes when your on the field and someone is nearby and shooting your hopper might spin but it wont do any harm so aww well... This loader is awesome and if you look around at proshops you can find it for pretty low prices ( sometimes around mid 40's)
Also since it is sound activated you dont have to worry about paint color or the sun affecting infrared sensors.
This is a great product and it performs the way it says when you buy it, im giving it a 9 because the neck was chipped when it was shipped ( definetly from shipping but aww well)

Tilt spin has to be tilted far for it to work
This hopper has allowed me to shoot faster and not worry about a jamed feedneck. I played with it in a tourny and it survived a couple of hits so I assume that it is pretty strong. Once or twice the sound activation diddnt work but that may have been because of low batteries. The tilt feed operation is a good idea but it dosent work all that well since i have to almost put my marker on its side for it to switch directions.
Its a great hopper if your not looking at soending 100-200 on a Halo B or Reloader B. Id definatly get this because it is well worth the money
