Viewloader introduces the all new VL Quantum electronic agitating feed loader. This 140 count electronic loader designed for the intermediate player features a spring-loaded flip cap lid, one touch operation, a feed rate up to 8 balls per second, and a high impact resistant shell. The new VL Quantum loader requires one 9 volt battery (Not Included). Available in Diamond Clear only.
The Viewloader Quantum is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
So my friends been using this hopper since his vlocity broke. caused nothing but problems for him. Luckily at the time i took a break from semi and played pump. SO I ended up using it. This is probably the worst hopper for a pump. It is really high because of the neck and it is loud. When i tried out for a team my friend was out of town so i could not get my empir so i was stuck with this garbage. I ended up one balling it was a waste of time eventuall the captain just game me his egg
Feeds as bad as gravity feed
Costs more than gravity feed
The neck is crazy high
Impeller never stops moving
Not one of those you get what you paid for
IF U BUY THIS UR A NOOB
JUST STAY WITH A GRAVITY feed
less noise lower profile
wont look as noobie
All are better --->Halo B, Halo B V35, Spyder Fasta, Tippmann Triumph.
PM6 W/Virtue board and Ultra-light frame, Freak Kit, LP Air Tank
It holds Paint, nothing else. Ok, it has flip on-off, uses 2 AA batteries.
Everything, See review
So, This hopper sucks... If you really want to buy it, please look at the Youtube videos of it first.
My friend let me borrow it for the summer, because I sold my V-35. I coulda hand fed faster than this thing. It is called a Quantum 4 for a reason... Its less than 4 bps. It's Very unconsistant, averaging at slow. I say, "its so slow, you have to measure the time it takes to empty the hopper on a calender." When it did load paint, it threw probably a 6 ball burst in a second, but then had major gap between the next few balls.
It was heavy. I don't know the exact #oz, but it felt heavier than my old halo without the paint in it.
It doesn't hold much paint, but with its speed, it really doesn't need too...
I hated it. If I ever had to shoot at an upward angle, It would not feed balls because the tube feed is at the front, and the agitation doesn't even push balls toward it. I didn't have a problem with this, but my friend said that it would slow with bigger paint bore size.
Look it up on Youtube... It's loud, slow, gaps in feed rate, heavy for size, and it's small paint bore.
Most people, like me started out buying paintball stuff at a large retail store, such as an outdoors store. They look cool, and VL says its 8BPS. For starters its 40$, when for 20 more you could get something like a revy or egg. Second, Its only got a ball capacity of 140. Third, There is no sensor, it is constantly agitating and it is VERY loud. You can see why it feeds about 2BPS when you notice that to get into the feed area of the hopper the paintballs basically have to be pushed under the rest, by a single little "Cat Tail" as its called on the box.
not a constant feed
carries only 140 balls
This is possibly the worst loader you can buy. First thoughts when i got it "wow this looks pretty descent." I put it on my spyder pilot and try shooting a little and what do you know its loud as hell i mean i will be playing in a game (rec ball) trying to be quiet and this thing is constantly making a loud high pitched whine. secondly i wasn't getting balls to shoot when i needed them. whether i was walking the gun or just doing quick 1 or 2 shots there were no balls in the chamber. the flow design of the hopper is terrible SOOO many balls get stuck before dropping. So after doing a free drop test with 130 balls in this hopper i got an average of 16 seconds so divide 130/16=8.12 balls per second(as the manual promised) not bad except when this loader loads balls it does it in little bursts of 3 or 4 with sometimes 5 seconds between them so you don't get a continuous feed of 8 bps just really fast bursts of 2 or 3.
NOT A GOOD HOPPER EVEN FOR THE PRICE get a gravity-cheaper and just as good!

Nothing Really close other than my Halo and gravity feeders
Empire Barrel Kit
Random Brand on/off
Victory Boarded Halo
G36C hand guard and rail
Six Position Stock
Tasco 30mm sight
Freak Jr. barrel
Ak mag kit
Trigger Spring Mod
Dishka Flash Suppessor
Puts balls in to gun
The spinner thing
I got this hopper off of a cheap electro-mech i got at a pawn shop for 50 bucks. I tried it out on my gun, and found the hopper to be loud, and the switch was hard to flick on/ off while wearing gloves. and i found the feed rate to be close to a gravity hopper, except it didn't jam...it just broke balls. The continuous agitation broke several balls inside.
After collecting dust in my closet for a few months, my little brother pulled it out, took it apart and found a way to actually increase the feed rate substantially. Don't ask me how, but he taped the end of a plastic spoon onto the spinner, (for lack of a better word) and put the thing back together, now the hopper almost feeds like it should.
Over all, save your money for something better, with eyes to sense when it needs to feed.
If your just a weekend player, with a Spyder and don't/can't get another hopper, it will work fine, but it couldn't even keep up with my tippy.
I'll give it a 2, only because my brother found a way to increase the feed rate.

Spyder Victor III
Viewloader Quantum agitating hopper
SP 14" Linear barrel
20oz. co2 tank
If you shoot below 8bps it won't jam.
Is always shifting balls around.
Feedneck seems somewhat fragile
Sound gets anoying
Don't even think about trying to sneak.
Have only used it in one day of play. Had to shut it off a couple of times when I was close to opponents, and then it would occasionally jam, but when I turned it on it never jamed. I bought it because I needed any hopper better than my gravity hopper that could feed only about 4-5bps(I shoot about 7-8) It does only hold 140rnds, but with the added feedrate its not a big difference.
I've played a couple more games and have gotten used to it, even like it a little more. It keeps up with me, and really in speedball there is always noise.
I would suggest buying if your just looking for any hopper to upgrade from a gravity hopper, but if you already have an agitated hopper, don't look for this one. Save $30 more and get an egg III

Slow (see review)
Thin, crappy lid
Well, back when I was first starting and got my Triad, this came in the players pack with it. My first problem was that the neck was too big to fit in most guns feed necks. Once I managed to get it in, it set quite high over the gun. It's clear, which can be good and bad. Good because you can see how many balls you have left, bad because so can the opponent, and on hot summer days your balls will melt <insert joke here>. When I accidentally dropped it, a giant crack formed on the left side of the shell. This runs for 30 bucks, and 8bps is slow compared to hoppers of a similar price (Halo TSA, Rhino, Overdrive). Also, the agitator seems to push balls away from the hole <insert joke here> or chop them. When it's on, the buzzing is loud enough that it will definatley give you away or drive you insane, whichever comes first.
It's a pimple on the butt of an otherwise freaking awesome sport. Don't get it even if your life depended on it. Easily the worst hopper you can buy, don't waste 30 bucks.
Vl 200 - Just as Good
Halo TSA LCD - Much better for not much more scratch
Spyder Imagine Body, Pilot trigger w/ custom work, LP Machined VA w/ 32degrees guage, Custom LP valve and pin, 32 Degrees Spring Kit, Polished striker, WGP Ergo reg, Nitro Duck 68/4500, Halo TSA LCD, Smart Parts Linear barrel, Lapco Clamping Feedneck.
Sounds a lot scarier than it really is
Raised tabs fit tight in feedneck
Doesn't feed balls at advertised speed
Battery door falls open
Holds only 140 balls
I bought this hopper to hold me over until my Halo TSA LCD arrived from Ebay. It was cheap and it said it could feed 8 balls per second. I just got a new Spyder Pilot E-trigger so I was excited to try it out. So I took it to my local indoor playing field and had nothing but problems. The only good thing is that it has raised tabs on the feedtube that fit nicely in my Lapco feedneck. I went to crono the gun and the hopper could not keep up with the trigger set on 6 bps. I chopped 2 balls on a 6 round burst. Much to my chagrin I had to play on semi auto. So I got out to play a few rounds and got owned because everyone knew where I was. An earlier review said that this would be a good hopper for woodsball, but this couldn't be further from the truth. Woodsball is not about high bps; Its about stealth, something that this hopper does not allow you. Meanwhile, the battery door keeps opening and the battery keeps falling out. I finally put the VL-200 on it and has less chops. Complete waste of money.
Don't buy it, save up the extra 30 bucks and buy something better, or just stick with the VL-200, its just as good and you'll get more eliminations by being sneaky.
shake and bake hoppers (gravity fed)-faster than this
evoulotion 2 hopper with y board-absolutely amazing you get your moneys worth with this i love this hopper!!!!!!!!!!!
Blue to black fade spyder pilot
14 inch j and j ceramic barrel
Shock tech top cocking spyder bolt
blue Dye sticky grips
lapco clamping feedneck without holes
evolution 2 hopper with y board
i will be switching over to hpa and then i getting a new board and a new drop off and maybe a reg. also a new microswitch and trigger
triton 2 (soon to be sold or given away)
it can just barely keep up with my triton 2
it can barely keep up with a triton2(that is sad)
annoying cat tail is on all the time
pushes paintballs away from the feedneck
gives you false hope
holds 140 paintballs
false advertising says it does more than it can
it makes people think that viewloader is a bad line of hoppers
Viewloaders are great dont let this hunk of junk fool you
Save up 20 more bucks and get a revy something halfway decent. I don't know why people always the recommend cheap stuff like this to beginners. If its cheap its probably not good, and this is definetly not good.

Nothing it sucks
this hopper was the biggest waste of 30$. My Vl 200 probobly shoots faster than this POS and it also looks cooler. So if your looking for a cheap electronic hopper, stay away from this one id suggest a vl revy 12 or somthin of that nature. Or just stick to a regular non electric hopper than usein this big crap trap.
