It was able to keep up with the new proto slg at 17 bps. The only things i did not like were the non-magnetic lid and the programming. Programming can be a little confusing for some one who is not used to using the halo hoppers. The lid of the feeder is a pain in the butt. I am definately making or buy a speed feed for this hopper. It is harder to open than the viewloader force and i thought that one sucked. Other than that this hopper is a great buy.
I would definately take this over an eggy in looks and in performance. Other than my few dislikes this hopper is a steal no matter what. I mean it is a halo simple halo made for the paintballer on a budget.

Better shell than Halo
Less batteries than Halo
Battery compartment still requires a screwdriver
I used this hopper straight out of the box for a 24 hour scenario game.
Some interesting facts:
* It's sound activated
* It never gave me ANY trouble during the entire game (100% humidity, light rain, near freezing temps) I shot 2 cases through it at 15 BPS with the default settings. The batteries are still going strong.
* The shell is more like the plastic on a black pod than a halo. In other words, it seems stronger, more matte black, more flexible, less subject to crack.
* The on/off was a bit easier to use than a regular Halo
* It uses 4 AAs instead of 6 like a regular Halo, so it's lighter, and uses less batteries
If they would replace that silly battery compartment screw with something you could open with your hands, it would be nearly perfect.
I wish I could comment on the programming, but since it worked so well out of the box I didn't bother messing with the settings. If I ever do, I'll update.
Bottom line: Can't beat it in that price range. It makes it tough to spend $150 on a hopper when this does 20 BPS and all the tourneys and big games limit you to 11 or 13 BPS. The only thing it doesn't have on the $150 hoppers is the ease of disassembly and easy battery compartment access of the more expensive stuff. But for $90 more...um...yeah I think I have that $1.00 screwdriver around here somewhere and a few extra minutes if I ever need to break it down.

Well this loader does the job of an electronic loader and for around 60 dollars it is a steal. It can feed up to 20 bps and youcan adjust the speed eyes and mic sensativity. The only beef I had whit the Hoppers is the mateneinece. To take it apart takes only 5 minutes but to put it back together taks so much more if ur not sure what your doing. Afte forty minutes of struggling wit hthe dang thing i finally got everything in place but i ened up losing the smallest screw at the bottom. Make sure to put the spring in the lid first becasue twice i tohught I had finished putting it bac together only to find that my lid wouldnt pop open.
Other then mateninece this thing is amazing I would say an 8 out of ten bu with my personal experience I am leaving it ith a 7. Great loader for the price but a pain o put back together.

Well, I was in a pinch today, so I ended up picking this up over spending 30 more bucks on a halo. I have to say I was very impressed. It will feed a solid 15-20, which is really all you need. The settings were fine right out of the box, so you don't really have to tinker with it.
My only beef with this hopper is the battery life. 4AA won't last a full case.
Overall, if you are a very serious player, I wouldn't recommend this hopper, it'd be worth the extra 30 bucks for something more meaty. However, if you are a casual player who wants something with kick and want to save some cash, this hopper is for you.
Vlocity-It is better in many ways compared to this loader.

None that i have seen in the loader. Great!
This setup that I have personally is great. I have played for 4 years now and play in tournaments with this setup. It is a great Loader and goes great with my Dust Blue Invert Mini. Great setup. The Invert Miniis also a absolute great gun to play with. I play with expensive guns and when i picked up the mini and this loader i was like WOAH! GREAT GUN.... Highly Recomended!
I would recomend this to anyone who is in tournaments and doesnt have the money for something like an ego or dm11 or anything
invert halo too
invert night stick carbon fiber barrel
ninja 48/3000 aluminum tank
Can match your shooting speed
Matte black coloring for woodsball
This hopper will feed balls into your gun at 20balls per second which is faster then you can shoot anyways so no need to go higher it is priced amazingly low and performs amazingly well. It is sound activated so it doesn't run all the time making noise and the microphone sensitivity can be adjusted easily as well as the feed power of the loader and stack monitoring
Its cheaply priced and is a quality product for sure buy it no need to buy a rotor when your not gonna use its full potential buy this and save a lot of cash
