VL200- The normal one, Gravity fed, Its ok for a begginer.
Richochet G2K- Looks sweet, Jams alot, Dont buy it, Stickers look good on it, Jams....
Main- 98C with Comando f/x package, 20oz tank, EggyII w/ yboard. (I know its overkill)
Backup- Pmi Usp pistol (Stock)
Lid is a funnel.
Nothing at all.
This is great. I bought this because I wanted something cheap to make my Tippmann stop dryfiring. I was going to get the Revy, but I heard some bad things about it. So I checked out Ebay and I saw this Evo II for $40, so I got it. No more dryfires. Its great. Holds a lot of balls the design is so great.
Kingman spyder imagine 2005,
custom products 14inch
egg 2 w/ y-board,
Dye sticky 3 grip
CP drop forward
20 oz c02 tank
next upgrades are
delrin acs bolt
Fast, wicked shape.
The plastic part that goes into the feed neck is plastic, could be better.
I love my hopper its wicked, i would recommend it to anyone. Make sure you get the eVLution 2 not the first one. Make sure you get a yboard or zboard. i would order it from ebay or actionvillage. If you get the eVLution II make sure you don't drop it, it could brake dah. Oh yeah when you get it make sure you unscrew the screws where the lid is because when you get the eVLution 2 the springs are really tight and the lid might pop open in a game, but make sure the screws don't fall out. i would also recommend the cp 14inch classic one peice barrel.
Why not buy it, you get your bang for your buck. You can waist anyone you point your gun at with the egg 2 and a good upgraded barrel. I would rate it a 9.6 because they could make the part that goes into the feed neck better.

eVLution 2 w/ Zboard
Faster than a regular halo b
Battery door kinda cheap(duct tape)!!!
i want to start off making sure that everyone knows that I HAVE THE Z BOARD!!!! i dont want all my comments to say that it can only feed 17 bps cuz the xboard makes it shoot 23+ bps ok well heres the review:
i really like this hopper i bought it used from a player who hardly used it and upgraded omg i no used isnt it horrible lol. well this hopper works great i have never chopped with it and i shooot pretty fast with a t board and a 25 gram switch. some people say that the hopper is ugly, i think that it is peer preferencei think that the egg style looks awsome, and i like the lid for reloading but they say that it acts like a funnel i still spill quite a lot of paint, but what speedball player doesnt?
I have never had any problem witht this hopper and i think that its a great buy that can be upgraded to faster than a halo b for cheaper. i give it a 9 because it is kinda hard to reload quickly with pods. its great to get if you dont have a 150 dollars or wtf ever to spend on a halo b

Tippmann Custom Pro:
-feeds great for most guns
-cheaper then halo and empire reloader B
-Sometimes battery door has problems
-Cleaning is kind of a hassle
It is a cheap alternative compared to the Halo or Empire. I upgraded mine with the Z-board now it feeds as fast as the other hoppers. It keeps up with my Imagine (uncapped). I also let my freind use it for his Shocker when his halos board burnt out. and he said he didnt chop a ball.
Buy it if you dont have the money to buy the Halo or Empire.
2nd Gen ACS bolt/ bought seperatly
16" freak barrel
Evlution ll w/y-board
Easy to load-spring door acts like funnel
Very Very hard to clean
This hopper is incredable. Right out of the box I thought it looked awesome and it looked like a mean ball feading machine. I didn't have any spare batteries in the house so it was like a week before I could actually test it out. The first time I turned it on I thought "Man the noise is gonna be a distraction," because it makes a loud whirring sound without any paint in it. So, when I was at the field using it for the first time I was very excited because it was the first time using an electric hopper. I filled that beast up and turned her on and the balls fed into the gun amazingly fast. I was shooting non-stop for a good 5 seconds at a time and I never dry-fired. The only problem I had was it stopped feeding altogether twice, all I had to do was turn it off and on again and it was back to life. Two other bad things, it's really high-profile. Meaning that its gonna be sticking up over the bunker your behind. Just break out the hack saw and take a 1/2" off the feed tube and your good. The last one is that it is so freaking hard to clean. I took me at least 2 1/2 hrs to put it back together after I'd cleaned it.
I paid $60 for mine and I thought it was the best $60 I've ever spent. My advice to you though after you buy it, find an easy way to clean it. I give it a 9 beacause the average rating is too low IMO I would like to give it an 8 but it deserves a better reputation.
Standard Gravity feed hopper, Viewloader 12v revvy
EXT Pro, All american Barrel, Boss bolt, Boss blade trigger, PMI nitro tank, Evolution II hopper
Fast, Pretty impact resistant, good looking
Flimsy battery door, It took a lot of sanding to get it to fit
Alright the good stuff... First of all it keeps up with my EXT really good I only out shot it once but that was because the speed was only 3/4 of the way up. Its fallen off of my gun and landed on concrete and only left a few scratches so its pretty impact resistant. Also when I was playing I ran and dove and the feed tube on my gun broke off. With all the sanding i had to do on the hopper I figured it would break before the feed tube on my gun would. But it didnt its a very tough hopper.
Now on to the bad stuff... The battery door was flimsier than i thought it was going to be but it still holds up. It kinda makes me nervous that its goin to pop off when im playin tho. It also took a lot of sanding to get it to fit on my feed tube.
Its a good hopper I have had absolutely no problems with it except with the sanding, so I give it a 9 I mean nothings perfect...
Weak feedneck and battery lid
The feedneck is horrible. It's not glued together like other loaders so its easy to break apart.
The lid has positives and negatives. It's good since you have to pull down on it and it won't pop open like the halo when diving. The bad thing is that the lid has springs. I don't know why its needed. I took out the springs and it was still very secure which is a plus.
The the little slanted things that secure the battery lid is horrible because once it breaks, you have to buy a whole new shell.
I can't see why they could have just made the battery part a little smaller so that you won't need the battery spacer. It can get lost very easily even though you put it where the battery is supposed to be when your not using it because the battery lid isn't secure without the batteries.
It doesn't react as fast as most of the loaders on the market.
It's not force fed nor semi-force fed thus increasing chances of chopping while using a marker without eyes. The Z-board can make it semi force and it's an inexpensive upgrade.
Customer Service is horrible. The same goes to Brass Eagle and WGP. These three companies take about 3 months to answer a single e-mail and almost never answer phone calls during business hours. It all started happening after they were bought out by K2 so I don't know what's been going on.
The motor's life span is much shorter than all the loaders out there.
The profile is awsome though. Some people will agree with me and some will contradict me but to me, the profile is good.
At least its lighter than the Halo B unless you put a 9v mod on the halo because then the Halo becomes lighter.
It's very gentle on balls since it has rubber rudders.
It has more negatives than positives but most of the problems will start to occur after about a year. So it's a good loader but I say the Halo B is better.

Spyder Imagine, 14" whisper, evo2 w/y-board, two 20oz co2, stock barrel(not very good), super fly bolt.
Speed, pushes the paint in, sound activated
Kinda heavy, but that's about it.
I've used this in many battles. Its worked great. Its ability to change the feed speed is very nice if you want to shoot slower or faster (it saves battery to). The eye in it allows it to shut off when your not shooting(unless there's nothing in front of the eye, then the feed just spins). It has a nice lid that helps when you have to reload fast in the field. A great addition for any gun. The weight isn't to bad of a problem but if you have a heavy gun this will definitely add to it.
Good buy. Good addition to any gun, slow or faster. Usually not bad priced either. I give it a nine 'cause its not perfect but its very good.

doesnt eat up batteries
U can still chop with vision with it
When i bought this i didnt have vision yet.; so when i bought vision i thought that i wouldnt chop. but i still did. so if u got vision, buy a halo or the empire reloader b because they are fast enough to keep up with vision. but it is cool. nice job VL!
If u got a slower gun, get it, if u got a fast one, get the halo, unless u wanna chop.
