First I Must Say, I Do Not Regret Buying This Product One Bit, I Find This Perfect In Almost Every Aspect. So To Sum This Review In One Sentence, Get This Feedneck Its Perfect. Now On To The Details =)
This Clamping Feedneck...Well...it Clamps Down On The Hopper, The Clamping Style Is Made For Ease Of Use While 1 Simple Clamp Adjustment To Your Hopper, You Can Have a Tight Fit Every Clamp. One Problem With This Clamping Feedneck I Had Is When I Tried Clamping My VLocitys Neck In It Just Wouldnt Clamp, The VLocitys neck Is To Small, This Counts Against Hopper, Not Clamping Feedneck. But This Is The Only Hopper That The Clamp Just Wouldnt Clamp on To That I Had Used, I Have Clamped a Richochet, Egg, Halo, and Empire In Their Clamperfect.
Clamp Was Used: 13 Times =o
This is 100% Personal Preference. Although This Design Is Very Nice Looking, It May Not Appeal To Some.....But That Doesnt Matter Because I Like It.. So Their.
This Feedneck Can Withstand Much Basic Impact, The Item Used To Make This is a Low Weight Metal. I Have Yet To Scratch it, But Then again I Take Care Of My Things. The Anno Looks Thin But I Am Not To Sure. (Make a Comment and Rub it in My Face If im Wrong About Any Of This And Ill Change It If It Seems True)
You Can Hardly Feel This Feedneck It Is So Light, Not Like Theirs Much To be Heavy, Only a Small Object Ya No ;) But Still This is Very Light and Takes like ..oooo...lets just go with .004 oz. off your gun big whoop-de-doo. Feels Same As A Stock Spyder Feedneck.
Unlike Having To Use an Attachment Such as a Alluminum or Plastic Long Feedneck This You Stick Your Hopper Right In, Which Means Its Lower, Which Means An Inch Or Two Less Chance That Paintball its Going To Hit You... ;) Pretty Cool Huh, See How Far Technology Has Come Now'a'days.
If Your Looking For a Clamping Feedneck Look No Further, A Price Of $27+- This is a Deal, I Dont Know What Others Reviews Are Complaining About With "Oh The Price Is Horrible For This Thing" Well Whatever, I Guess If Your on a Budget and Dont Spend Every Single Penny On Paintball Like Me Then Yea I Guess It Can Be High But Whatever Get It.
With All My Experiance With This I Would Have To Say It Fudging Rocks Ok? Cool, So A+ Product, Good Job Trinity =D

Stock Spyder Pilot ACS '05
Trinity T-Lock Clamping Feedneck
Brass Eagle 200 rd Gravity Hopper
Pure Energy 20 oz co2
Super Swirl Paint
Keeps hopper low
Easy to attach or detach hopper
KEY STRENGTHS: Keeps hopper low
It drops the hopper 1" to 1.5" lower from the stock setup. This helps keep your exposure to a minimum when you're peeking out from bunkers. Easy to attach or detach hopper
The clamp makes it quick and easy to put on or remove the hopper, a matter of seconds. Material
Its made out of a solid material, much more sturdy and durable then the plastic excuse of a stock adapter that comes with the gun. (My stock adapter broke after 3 days of use). Feed
Despite the lowness of the hopper (which may reduce the ability of the balls to get in a line sooner) it still maintains a good feed rate.
KEY WEAKNESSES: Price?!?!?!
No matter what you'll probably pay $25-$35 for this feedneck. But its still a good upgrade to get!
Amazing piece, small, durable, and functional. Everything you need. I suggest you get this product!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!
This is probably the third most important upgrade that can be made on the spyder. Any aftermarket feed neck is better than the plastic junk that comes stock. This trinity fits any thing from a halo to a ricochet. I had a ricochet ak before the egg and it really gripped the load well with out the o-rings. The neck hold the egg just as good with out any movement. The neck may be a little difficult to install because you have position the screwdriver in an odd angle to fasten it to the body. Other than that, this neck works great.
If you have an opportunity to buy this feed neck, buy it. You won't go wrong with it.
Spyder E-99 With 14" Lapco Big Shot
Trinity feed neck
I've also played with Piranha's (G3, Gti, R6) Tippman 98 and other Spyder's (compact, TL Plus, Spyder One) and Phantom
Dose everything a good feed neck sould do. Clamps tight, Low profile.
Hard to find, other wise there is no weakness.
This was the 2nd upgrade to my spyder E-99 and it should of been the first.
The plastic feed tube was not doing me justice. It was very tall and make the marker hard to hold cause the center of gravity was so high. It wasn't that bad until you hold the marker at a angle to match your bunker. On top of all of that, It broke. Just like all the other ones I've seen.
When the plastic tube broke, I wanted the best feed neck money could buy. I wanted something that was short, clamps tight to anything and non-breakable. The Trinity feed neck offers all of these fine qualities.
Height. The feed neck is no taller on the gun than the stock feed neck. Then you insert your loader into the clamp witch lower it by another 1/2 inch. Can't get it much shorter than that. This makes the loader much lower and bring the center of gravity down witch makes the maker easier to handler.
Clamping. This thing clamps on just about anything. Once you adjust the screw, flip the lever over and your done. Quick and easy, no tools necessary. I will admit that you can still twist the loader of turn on it hard enough but I have not had any trouble yet. I guess if you fall hard enough it might mess it up a little, but you'll be messed up to.
Durability. This thing is made from solid alum. like ant other good maker out there. If you break this thing, you probably fell off a three story building.
Adviablity. This sucker is hard to find. I looked all over the Internet and only places I found it was eBay and one online store. I needed the feed neck with holes for my spyder E-99 and that made it even harder to find. I couldn't find any on eBay at the time so I order it from zephyrpaintball for $36 with shipping. It took them three weeks to get in stock and another 1 1/2 weeks to ship it ups. That was the longest wait ever.
Price. Not cheap at $27 witch makes it on of the pricier feed necks out there. But It's worth every penny.
EDIT: After playing with the feed neck for a little while, I only like it even more. I was playing a woods ball game and I ended up doing a bell flop into a 3-4 foot deep trench and the only thing that happen to the hopper was that it came open. So I top it off again and continued playing. It didn't even twist.
If it was't so hard to find, I'd give it a 10.

Stock plastic feed neck on spyder- Dosn't even compare
Spyder Imagine '04
32 degrees x-chamber
Sp Drop forward, on/off ASA
Trinity Low Rise Clamping Feed Neck
KingMan ACS bolt
Lets hopper sit low on gun
Hard to put on/remove( Its no big deal)
This feed neck is a great upgrade for any spyder it not only holds your hopper so it won't come off it is also a lot sturdier then the plastic feed necks that it replaces. it also lets your hopper sit lower on your marker by 2+ inches giving you a lower profile. which helps to keep you in the game longer. the only gripe I have about the feed neck is that it is so low hat it is hard to get on your gun because you have to tighten the screws at an angle.
This feed neck is a must have! If you are still using those stupid plastic feed necks then go out and get one you wont be sorry. despite the fact that it is a little hard to put on( its really no big deal) Im still going to give it a 10/10 because it is a great product

This feedneck is a great upgrade from the stock plastic one. You don't have to worry about this one breaking because it's metal. It holds the hopper in place very well; you don't have to worry about your hopper falling off. Also, it gives your marker a very low profile, lowering the hopper by an inch or two compared to the stock feedneck.
Lose the plastic feedneck! It's too high and it'll break eventually. This feedneck is one of the best upgrades for your marker. Buy it!

2004Blue BKO with CMI EC Drop, Egg II, Worrgas Steel 50ci, delrin spike pin, and soon to come clamping feed neck.
Spyder E-99 with 14" J&J Ceramic, Kingman ACS Delrin Bolt, VL Revvy 12v, and Trinity T-Lock elbow
The lock keeps on and it wont move
Haven't found one yet but if i do i'll be sure to update
this product is great. One It is metal so it wont break, two the lock on it keeps the hopper from twisting unlike the stock one. Its a great buy for only $30 and has been one of my best upgrades to the gun so far.
it also pulls the hopper closer to the gun by about 1/2 an inch

Spyder Victor 2 with Kingman rocking trigger frame,evil detonator regulator, ANS drop forward w/ asa on/off, acs delrin bolt, Empire reloader hopper, trintiy clamping feedneck, 45/3000 pure energy HPA and 14'' 32 degrees whisper barrel.
Durable,, will not unclamp.
Price, somewhat difficult to install.
When I recieved this in the mail, I thought it looked a little cheesy, kinda plasticy. I was wrong. I put this on my spyder, which was a little difficult to install (because I ordered the one with holes to screw into my gun it was a little difficult to angle the screw driver correctly to get a good bite on the screw [ now I have good technique to doing this]), but I prevailed without too much hassle. It takes a few times to figure out how to adjust the tightening screw on the clamp, but once you have it set correctly it will shatter before it lets go of your hopper. I love the screw hole feature on this, once it's on you gun it ain't coming off. The clamp itslef rotates so you can afix it to a comforatable spot for you which is a great feature.
The only flaws in this product are the instalation (which is not that bad) and the price, which I suppose you'll expect to pay around $30 for any decent feedneck. So my final score is a 9.0. I highly recomend this product, you can't go wrong with it.
Spyder XTRA 2K6, Evil Pipe Kit, 20 oz Pure Energy CO2, Trinity Clamping Feedneck, Dye Sticky 3s, Richochet AK Loader, Shocktech Superfly bolt
Insert is a little short
The trinity T-Lock is amazing. It lowers your hopper about 3 inches, which not only makes you a smaller target, it centralizes the center of gravity of your gun, making it feel lighter. The clamp is adjustable. Fit my old VL200 and My AK. The only weakness is that the neck is a little to shallow. They could make the neck deeper and keep the same height. It just feels a bit uncomfortable the first time you drop a hopper in. However, after playing for a few hours, my AK is still in solidly, so I guess they got the depth right. Somehave said it is tough to attach. Mine went in just fine and sits perfectly flush. If you have a complete tool kit (more than one philips head screwdriver) you should be fine.
The neck is amazing. Drop the 30 bucks and get one. It adds peace of mind to your hectic matches. Even though the neck feels a bit shallow, I am still giving it a 10 because my AK has yet to fall out under the death grip of the T-Lock.

Does not Fit my egg neck well
Got the feedneck for 12 dollars shipped so i bought it. Its a bit hard to get down, the screws around it u hav eto use a thin screw driver since the sides are a bit in the way. Also my egg's neck is a bit too small so i had to stuff some packaging in there to get it so it wont move at all. Wish they made it more tighter for the eggs, but the best feedneck ive ever used so buy it!
Only downfall is it needs to be smaller for the egg feednecks so it scores a 9/10
