Spyder is proud to introduce the new Fasta Electronic Loader. The Fasta provides both a sleek aerodynamic design and lightning fast game play with an impressice 30+ BPS. This loader picks up slack on the others promising to be the fastest. The Fasta is ultra light weighing in at one pound with the batteries installed! The loader has an impressive 230-ball capacity and is easy to reload with the quick load lid. The revolutionary feed ramp reduces popcorning in the feed neck which enables the quickest load imagined. The Fasta in availble in LED and LCD, as well as 9v and 18v;Both come with low battery indicators. With the LCD screen the players can stay on top of the game with an advanced timer. Enjoy your speed.

The Kingman Spyder FASTA 18v LCD is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Hard to clean
LCD version no better then the LED version
OK. I have only used this item for about a week now and I am rather impressed with it. The Fasta is fast and I have no doubt that it feeds at 30+ BPS, but it doesn't seem like a true force feed hopper like the Halo B. The extra ball capacity is very welcome and Kingman still managed to keep the size of the Fasta shorter then the Halo B and just a tad longer. The only real complaint I have about this hopper is that under high rates of fire from my VS3, the Fasta was not able to keep up as good as my Halo B with the V35 board installed. The fasta is not sound or eye activated, there is a little strip that is in the feedneck that when a ball moves over it, the impeller will spin. Also, Kingman decided that cheap stickers on the outside and on one side only was better then actually painting on the Fasta name and the Spyder symbol.
Now let me explain the stuff above:
Dual 9 volt operation - uses two 9v batteries for a total of 18 volt's
Price - I got mine for $72.00
Tough shell - the shell can take close up hits with no damage
Quiet - The hopper uses a very small motor and it is nice and quiet
Lid - the lid seems week and fragile
Hard to clean - There is a lot of nooks and crannies for paint to get into
LCD ver VS LED ver - The LCD version is no better then a LED version except for a game timer, thats all the LCD version has over the LED version.
Feed impeller - This item seems very week and looks like it could break, but only time will tell.
Overall, the Kingman Fasta is a very good hopper. The LCD version is normally priced at $99.99 from Kingman, but I would only get the LED version. This is a very nice first for Kingman.

Well over the passed to years playing Turny paintball i have used a few diffrent hoppers like the revvy's eggs's Halo B2, and the Pulse(junk feedneck) most of them work really well but had a very low shelf life and didnt last me long some times feednecks would break or the motor would die. but in the last little while i have been using the Kingman Fasta. I find that it has alot going for it. because it is thick plastic it can take hits from close range. The feed neck is one of the main good things about it. its double layerd plastic makes it very durrable even when sliding or jaring. the battery use is average and the speed is GREAT for its price because alot of there other hoppers will run you 200$-150$ and this will only run u 80$ and works alot better and lasts alot longer
Great product works well , really fast , super durable , super cheap. Best hopper on market
Halo B - halo way better
Revy - revys are better too
Red smart parts ion (, bullet dropforward w/on off, roller trigger,virtue board,virtue eyes,cp regulator,all american 14'' barrel,snatch grip,) 72/3000 pure energy tank and a Fasta hopper
Ok just got this thing Friday ordered it the day it popped up on ebay and had it shipped overnight cuz i was having trouble with my halo keeping up with virtue board in PSP mode and i didnt wanna get a victory board for the hopper so i thought i would give Spyder another chance. When i got the hopper i wasnt thrilled with the look of of, it looked like... well... a spyder product, the screen was o.k. but kinda hard to press buttons with gloves on. I popped battery into hopper and gassed the gun up. It had no trouble keeping up with the virtue board. So saturday i went to PB country ( you can visit their site www.paintballcountryohio.com) and played. everything was going great then i slide into the 40 standup can and i TAPPED it on the ground coming in the hopper stopped feeding. I called myself out went back , replaced battery still nothing, aparently wiring came loose on the feeder and now i have to get it replaced.
Overall its an O>K hopper but it is made by spyder and i had the $$$ back i would definetly just buy a board for my Halo, if you can buy the halo dont get this hopper .
ive used a ricochet ak loader this loader was great when it first came out never had any problems with it. i can get 12 bps with it.
i have a ego 07 with a 68cu 3000psi tank and a fasta 18v lcd loader i also have a jt excaliber 5.0 with a 16 ounce co2 and a ricochet ak loader for my back up
1 Holds 240 balls,2 Price, 3 Count down timer
1 Only 25 bps not 30+ as advertised
Its a great hopper if you dont need more than 25 bps. The lcd count down timer was a good idea. For $90 it was a good price at the time. Ive ony played with it for 3 months now and have not had any problems with it. I bought it mainly because it holds a lot of paint 240 balls and they said it shoot over 30 bps.
Its a great loader but now for $7 more you can get a halo b with a victory board witch shoots faster so i hear.
very lite ,low profile , nice smoke colour and no chops , fits a Speed Feed
i tested this hopper along with a Empire b and the results were very close maybe one or two bps faster with the halo b we tested it with a Lasoya Promaster, Angel 4 fly and a DP Fusion with the fasta keeping up with all the gun 22bps with the promaster , 21 semi on the angel and 23 bps with the fusion, i also tested the fasta with ramping with eyes off not one chop , i had a halo v35 with rip i had alot of breaks in the hopper which is why i sold it to buy this , i am very happy with the fasta is almost just as fast as a halo but holds more balls and lighter then anyother loader ,
My Fasta on a Fusion
this hopper aint no Halo but very close , if you looking for a cheap hopper that holds more this baby is for you , it blows the Egg out of the Water

18v Fasta LCD Hopper
16" J&J Performance Ceramic Barrel
24 and 9 oz. CO2 tanks
Pretty fast and it holds 230 balls
I got my 18v LCD Hopper for my MR2 so i could do auto if i had situations where i needed it but ne way, it is just as fast as my gun so i can't complain. It beeps when the timer gets to 1 min. and 30 secs. and at the end of the timer. The screen helps me out a lot to know if somethin' is goin' wrong. One thing i really like is that it does a self dynastic test when u start it up. Mine broke on the bottom part and it still works (it broke cuz i had a bad feed neck) I still am gon' get a new one but i still think anyone should get it.
I recommend u to get this hopper. It is good for tha price and is fast enough for me. Only thing is that it wastes battery faster than the LED, but what ever one u pick u'll b pleased wit it's performance.
This is a very quick hopper. The looks aren't the greatest But Its very light and fast. In some places there extra plastic that really doesnt need to be there, But still the hopper is very light. For those who dont have a clamping feedneck, the fasta has a snug fit in the feedneck. This is a very good hopper.
I would reccomend this hopper to anyone with a fast gun.
Halo B w/victory board
Pepper Stick Barrel Kit
Freak Barrel Kit
2 Crossfire 91/4500
Ease Of Use
The fact it is a kingman
Jams at high ROF
When I first used the product I thought it would be a vlocity killer, but it jamed when i drop tested it. It clocked out at about 25-28 BPS. I think it was only my paint that made it slow.
At semi mode capped at 20 bps it was really smooth and somewhat quieter than my halo.
but at ramping mode (uncapped ROF) it jammed more times than fat kid squeezing thru a window half his size. i could do 24 bps.
Stay away from this if you play speedball or x-ball. if your a noob this is perfect.

Spyder Electra 09
Fasta 18v Hopper
12 in. Stock Barrel
JT Raptor Mask
Doesn't ware out
Not true force fed
I got this hopper and i am very impressed with it, it feeds 28 BPS and the motor keeps on running. The game timer is a nice touch, but it isn't necessary. the battery life is pretty good. Mine has the Fasta engraved on the side unlike everyone else who claim to have stickers.. I don't know why though..
It is a good hopper and the price is just a little high... get if you can
SPYDER-E99 WITH SHOCKTEK BOLT ,14-INCH PROTO BARRELL ,81 CI COMP. AIR TANK ,EVOLUTION II HOPPER ,AUTOCOCKER STOCK,ION WITH FREAK BARRELL,KINGMAN SPYDER VS 3 WITH 1 PIECE PROTO BARRELL
Very vast,looks good,lcd screen works very well,2 9 volt batteries,light weight
Maybe the lid but time and games will tell
I like this hopper ,after purchasing it i took it to the test range with my vs 3 and it worked perfectly ,better than my evo's ,during the games i played it also worked flawless ,i love the capacity also it doesn't seem like mor but i did notice the difference ,good buy ,good price,good looks,fast,in my opinion the best hopper out there.
"Get this hopper"
