A5, countless accessories
05 Shocker (i'm not even gonna, its fully custom)
Don't need an offset adapter and stock hopper, therefore, a lower profile
Flimsy design, feels like its gonna break when shot
Doesn't fit to cyclone, wobbles
when I first saw this product out, I was ecstatic, finally a hopper that is offset without the need for those ridiculously high and ugly looking offset systems!
I buy this sucker up, and the first word I think of is disappointment
An innovative design no doubt, but the thought process behind the manufacture of it seems to fall through
The plastic they used feels brittle, like its going to break if it gets a direct hit from a paintball.
It also does not fit well on the cyclone system, it was nearly impossible to get it to fit, but once I had done so and was able to get it in, the other side of the hopper was really loose, and i could push it to one side and it would pop off. So in other words, tough to get on, but hit something on it on the field and its gonna come off really easy.
update: i'm selling this hopper, and getting the X7 offset hopper instead, i suggest you get that hopper instead, until newer models have a tighter fit, and are made with a strong plastic like the orginal Tippmann hoppers.
If you think you can get this to fit better than I did, buy it, otherwise like what I've heard from other people who own it, its probably gonna fall off or break on you

14 inch sp linear
IDF TAB4 foregrip
t-2 off-set loader
tri-mount undermount rails
red dot sight
Does not block sighting w/ scopes, sights, etc.
Nothing. White lid?
I was skeptical about this loader at first I must admit, but it's been working great for me. I've only had it for close to two months now, but I play a lot of woodsball, once a week for at least 5 hours, so it's been tested pretty good in my opinion. It was slightly difficult to put on, but trust me it will fit. you just gotta get that proper angle...
Once it's on it stuck for me. It didn't fall off or become loose like a few of these other reviews. the only purpose for this upgrade though is if you intend to use your red dot sight. sometimes i use it, sometimes i don't. but it's always good to have just incase.
The lid is white, not black like the factory loader from tippmann. that's really the only downside to this product I can see.
Only get it if you need it. personally, I prefer the stock loader, but i needed this, and it works great anyways. It gets a 10 from me.

A Whole Mess of Other Upgrades
Offsets Hopper out of the Sight line.
I see from other reviews that some people have been having a hard time with their hoppers coming loose, I havent had that problem at all and I have put mine through alot of difficult use. I play primarily woodsball and scenario ball and not once has my hopper come loose. Its works well for what it was designed to do, i.e. keep the hopper out of the sight line. I have not had a problem with mine at all. I am very pleased with the performance of this particular piece of equipment.
I would recommend this to anyone who is using the A5 setup and would like to use some sort of sight at the same time. It is reliable and I have yet to find fault with it.
G36 Foregrip and Top Rail
Hammerhead Barrel Kit
Puts Hopper out of line of Sight
Does not raise profile
Doesn't fit Perfectly
Not the Quality of Stock Hopper
This hopper was exactly what I had been looking for. Having a sight I wanted a clear line of sight down the top of my A-5, this hopper gives you exactly that. You do not have to sacrafice ball capacity as with the Tac Cap. Mine is actually a little tight. I have to work it down into the lock groove, but I would rather have a tight hopper than a loose one. Led Stays shut. I have taken 2 or 3 hits to it and it has bee unaffected.
Product does exactly what it is advertized to do. Plus it holds up alot better than the stock hopper I chopped the side off of and taped up. I would definitely recommend product to anyone who has an A-5 with a sight.
