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.
2003 Dragunfly mech, works grip frame, 12 in. teardrop barrel, dye sticky grips, derlin anitchop bolt, bob long torpedo reg, halo b hopper(it is the only one that can keep up with me now)
none except painting the inside of ur hopper
i used 2 have one of these with my old spyder. it made me chop balls like there was no tomorow because of its skrewd up feeding. the nonstop feeding gave me away like every time in the woods because it was so noisy. when i filled it with 150 balls it painted the inside of my hopper with paint because of its retarted design. i would not even recomend this hopper as a backup hopper for a newb. get a 2.50 $ hopper from wallyworld instead of this piece junk.
i gave up on this hopper and bought my friends ricochet ak for like dirt cheap to replace this one. take my advice buy a revi or a ricochet and spend a few extra bucks to get quality that works

Everything else stock
Umm, it looks cool
-Only holds 140
-the sound gets annoying after about 5 seconds
Wow this thing sucks. But really all that the C.A.T. tail does is prevent balls from entering the feed neck. It does look cool, and if you like to shoot about 3 balls per second and don't want to have to periodically shake your hopper like with a normal VL, then this is the hopper for you. If you are looking for something that will actually increase the feed rate of balls into your marker, then get a Revvy or an eVLution.
VL really messed this one up, but I'll give it a 2 because it looks cool.

~Shoots 8 balls per second
~Pops balls like crazy!
Do not, I repeat, do not get this hopper! It does not work for any gun! It pops balls, 8 balls per second, and listen to this, my friend has the Quantum, bang, bang, bang, pop, pop, pop! Definitely a waste of paintballs. Even though it's a cheap hopper, and it maybe all you can afford, I recommend saving twenty extra dollars, and get the Ricochet.
My final recommendation for this hopper is quite simple, DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT GETTING THIS!!!!
I have used just your basic hopper ones that are not electric.
Kingman Spyder X-tra with 20 oz C02, viewloader quantum, pretty basic gun
Got a cat tail
Ok i have used this hopper for about 2 years now adn i have never had a bust in it besides with wild streak paint ( read my review on wild streak ). other than the wild streak no problems with busts. this hopper is extremely easy to take apart to clean just in case you do run into some of those wild streak problems... ok and this hopper is very strong. It has met a tree and the ground a couple of times oh and you can't forget bunkers they're hard to,... and throughout all of the mishaps there are no cracks or anything but a couple of small scratches ( dont believe me buy 1 and drop it a couple times). I do like it because you can see how much paint you got left. but it sits very high on my gun thats really one of the only downsides and the noise it makes when you turn the cat tail on. other than that ... It rocks.
BUY ONE !!! no bad ratings comin from me I give it a 9

great for my gun
Woun't feed when off
only holds 140 rounds
Its true that Many people dislike even hate this loader but the truth is it works great with my gun. I wount have a job till summer so this was an excilent alternitive till then. I havent been playing all that long and the normal hopper wasent kicking fast enough for when i shoot in full automatic mode. the quantom did Ok for me. I got used to the sound fairly easily and love this loader now. Even though my gun shots 20bps the quantom will work for me for now. Because i try not to throw out that much paint at a time. Just because you can it doesent mean you schould.
this hoppers been good for me in tournaments too.
Its not the best obvouisley but it works well for me.
Only thing similar to this would be a gravity fed hopper.
PsychoBallistics Large Drop Forward
Low Pressure Block
too many barrels to name.
Functions as a gravity feed when it's turned off.
MAX. Capacity = ~110 balls
Taller than most
First: DO NOT BUY IF YOU PLAY WOODSBALL. This thing is too loud for that purpose. Its agitator constantly turns and makes noise no matter what.
It advertises that it hold 140 balls. I put in 140 balls, assuming that this was its capacity. Wrong. If you fill this hopper, the agitator will not spin, just hum. So, at risk of breaking it, you're going to need to take out about 15-25 balls.
This thing is also much taller than most hoppers. You'd figure that since it has such a low-capacity, it would be smaller. Well, its skinnier, but about the same height as my old gravity feed.
The loader also advertise 8 BPS. NO. Maybe 5, maybe. I started shooting at around 7 BPS and got every other shot with a ball coming out. I think the agitator was placed wrong or something because the balls seems to be pushed away from the neck. Could be just me, though.
Here is my story of this hopper:
A friend of mine said he hated the ****ing thing, so he gave it to me. I tested it out, thinking it was broken, but it functioned exactly how I described above. So, I took it, spray painted the top and front black, cut some of the neck down, broke a pop-sickle stick and used it for a new agitator and spliced some wires so the thing is only on when I push a momentary button. It works decent now, but for the amount of work I put into it, and for the minor improvement, I wouldn't use it.
I would not recommend this thing for anybody. Woodsball players= too loud. Speedball players = too slow. Anyone else= too crappy. Don't waste your money.

Feeds faster than a gravity feed.
A little slow
I tried this at my friend house and it was ok. I mean its perfect for him cause he only shoots like 5 bps. I popped it on my vs3 with the eyes on and i chopped a ball and paint went everywhere in the loader. But i can understand that cause i was shooting like 15 bps.

Cheap, Jams easily, very loud, cat-tail revolves constantly, low capacity.
I saw this thing on the shelf of my local Sports Authority and thought it looked pretty cool.So...I bought it thinking it would boost my performance.By the way, this was before I went with an E-trigger.This thing was horrible.It jammed more often than my gravity fed hopper and made the most irritating noise i've ever heard.In game I would have to shake the damn thing to get it to cycle.The cat-tail didn't do anything since I had to turn it off in order to not give away my position so it was literally a gravity fed hopper most of the time.Since the tail is always moving while this thing is on the batteries most not last long.I never found out how long they lasted on average because I returned the damn thing after my it's use.Save yourself the money and don't buy this peice of crap.
Do not buy this thing.It is a waste of money.Save up a few extra bucks and go with an Empire or something else.

Very slow, always agitating, loud, feed neck doesnt fit in a lot of elbows.
Dont buy this hopper, its a waste of money. If you want a good low end electronic hopper go for the Tippmann Triumph or the VL Revolution. They only agitate when a ball is shot. If you want a high end hopper for cheap go for the Kingman Fasta, it rocks. In the quantum the feed hole is in the front and its pretty much flat so the balls dont even go into the gun. You would probably be better off with a gravity hopper than this.
